    IT LIVES!!! so I finally got a chance to mess with this damn kit. pulled the rotor cover and noticed there was a little bit of play in the rotor that didn't translate to the piston moving hhmmmm...that ain't right. pulled the cylinder off and the needle bearing in the end of the rod is torched, probably 1/8" lateral play in the piston. pulled the motor out of another kit threw in the frame and was blistering around the block in 20 minutes. awesome, these things don't suck after all.dance1

    My starting routing is to pedal up to a good speed, pop the clutch and work the choke lever up or down while still pedaling till she pops off...It`s a little tricky and to be done without a lot of traffic around to be safe....But once the plug gets soaked with fuel you might as well give up on that plug.....
    Good luck....

    Yeah, these things can be VERY addicting. Last year I was almost killed on mine and I am building another one! (No my bike is not to blame for the accident, it was an idiot driver texting while driving.)
