Spent alot of money this week Image I bought a 94 jog in black n purple for the wifey. She's a smaller-sized girl so the jogs super light chassis should do well for her, and it's got underseat storage! Gotta love horizontal motors haha . Probably gonna keep it all stock besides a nice loud pipe. Loud pipes save lives!Image
I also picked up an 05 bugeye zuma for cheap. I'm either gonna flip it or make it a trail bike

It's a mystery haha.... jk it's gearharts. Saw it on cl, texted the ad in went down n saw all his sprees haha. Cool guy, nice collection.

This bike is still sitting on my back porch waiting for me to get to it. My ankle/foot injury is keeping me from starting to clean this thing up. I'm gonna just clean the carb and check what jets it's got, then swap out the brake cables n muffler for a loud sport muffler of some sort.

Back to my prebug. I cracked my taillight lense, but not bad. Also, I've been running around on it since my truck is a stick and not easy to drive w a medical boot on, and it died on me. I'm thinkin it's the fuel petcock, or maybe a vapor lock thing.

I got the jog running, but it seems like it's riding funny... might be bent somewhere.

The prebug died on me, like just shut off like no spark or no fuel or something. I've orders a new non-vacuum petcock and I'm probably gonna order a coil plug n cdi just cuz. This has happened before n I'm not sure what's up.

Thanks. Hope it rides straight. I haven't put any more work into it yet.

I did get my new manual petcock in. Actually, I ordered 2. But it has on, off, and a reserve function so maybe I can stop pushing this thing to gas stations uphill haha.

No, stay in florida. The cold is NOT worth it. Ill meet you in Mexico after trump destroys this country haha.

I also got some 12" wheels for this thing. Gy6 6 spoke wheels, 12x3.5, drum in back and disc up front. If anybody was wondering, the shortcase minarelli and vertical minarelli both share a rear brake and spline w some Chinese shortcase gy6 clones.

Went to spring scoot on saturday... and the rain killed my carb. Filled it up with dirt n mud. Bike just stuttered to the side of the rode as the pack moved on. $#@! Stage6!!
So I put on a vm24 mikuni from a stock kx65.... WAY better. I shoulda bought one of these along time ago. No power jet so I'm a little fatter on my main jet, and I've gotta buy new jets(again, part of the game haha) and a new filter, but this thing is RIPPIN up and down the block now, seriously. That pos stage6/koso carb was holding me back bigtime. I'm keeping it tho, gonna rebuild it and give it to my brother or use it on my aero again.
