Re: A new tool that may change my scooter fabbing for ever!

Re: Carb cleaner fluid?

Dont overlook the belt condition.. worn rollers... torque spring condition and torque driver pins and grooves and check for free movement in the torque driver.

Doing cranks isnt really that hard... you need a press and some fixtures (u can make em) a couple of V blocks and a pair of dial indicators, feeler guages and a soft hammer... copper is material of choice.

Re: Trafficjamz Pit Bike Madness Event!!! June 2nd

Had a great time this weekend racing with the guys at Northern MI drag way.... finally got some quality tuning time with the scoot and knocked off a half second. Think theres still a few more tenths to find but its time to break out the new motor.
Hope the kids are gonna be OK!!!

Re: change connecting rods?

Changing out a rod isnt too hard if you have the equipment and the skill to true it back up. Changing the rod length doesnt affect the stroke.

Re: Street/Strip Spree build

Finished... made two passes at the strip went 9.68 @ 70.3 with a horrible 2.5 60ft time. With a few more passes to learn how to launch it should be a low 9 second scoot.. not bad for a bunch of stuff we tossed together :thumbwink:
