    jrock- ive bought bmx brake kits at my local ACE hardware store for $14, or any hardware store that has a bike isle. wally world or target may work too.

    hey all

    just an update:

    i installed the new #41 chain and replaced the crummy stock bike chain

    pros:
    the chain is so thick it cant fall between the sprocket and spokes

    i nolonger need a chain tensioner
    i actually got it to start!

    cons:
    the chain rubbs my left side chain and seat stays =/ but it isnt too bad, more like guiding the chain then rubbing
    im going to leave it be

    this stock cranbrooke is the most comfortable ride i have, definatly a cruiser

    the next step it to figure the silly "speed carb" out
    ive tried for near a miles worth of pedaling to get it to idle and its not working out, im going to have to seal the crap out of the manifold to the carb

    compare the chains!
    this is the single best upgrade ive done to my bike

    it was near 16 bucks for two bikes worth of chain

    anyone have tips for this red cover carb? it has two screws on it to adjust fuel and air, and i cannt seem to get it to work right:-||

    The cranny is a thin frame so don't let the chain rub the frame too much. it may start a crack!!!
    as for the cnsv2 one is a idle screw and the other is air fuel mix, i had one that was not running well at all and i took it completely apart and found all kinds of metal shavings in the jets. try cleaning it thoroughly. i ended up putting the original nt on it

    the left screw is for air fuel in for more air
    on the right is the idle, in for more speed

    i will dismantel it to see if the jet is screwed in or if its clogged with shavings

    my nt is on my other bike and ive taken that thing apart a few dozen times, is the red cover carb as simple to take apart?
