    i asked him about that when these first came out, he said they should but never tried it.

    Thanks hkeller!
    Glad your happy with your purchase!
    I did not notice you were a OMB.com member when the order went through. It does not matter if your new. This is one awesome Forum and I'm glad you joined up too.
    I just sent you a paypal refund so you get the OMB discount price.
    As far as your question about the J.S being used with a 6.5 ....
    There are pics of the PMR J.S system being used with the 6.5 engine on my website at
    Baja Doodlebug,Dirtbug Performance and Repair parts It works great for many applications that can benefit from a gear reduction system. When using one for a 6.5 DB project you need to use the PMR mount plate that is available on the website too so you can set up your chain alignment. (engine mounting will be about 3/8" more to the right than if you just run a chain from the clutch to the rear sprocket).
    If you are going to just run a stock 6.5 engine with the Governor intact then the JS system will not really be that practical. The stock 6.5 makes enough torque to pull the 12-70 5.83 ratio OK. If you are going to run a modified 6.5 without a Governor then you can gear down with the JS system to get better take-off accell, smoother clutch action, and still have a blazing top speed because of your modified engines increased RPM capability. It's my opinion that the jackshaft makes a Hotrod 6.5 DB more fun to ride rather than trying to go for maximum top end speed with tall gearing. I like a 7 to 7.5 to 1 ratio on the bike I play with. But if anyone wanted to get crazy and try to set a land-speed record they could always change up the JS gearing to overdrive. Anyone have a Doodlebugger land speed record yet? lol
    Hope this helps explain.

    Brad:

    I received your refund. Thank you. That was not necessary, but it speaks extremely well of you. It is one in a million merchants that would provide an unrequested discount.

    Your product is well worth the original price I paid and then some. The smile on my son's face was worth every penny.

    Best regards to you.

    My 6yo daughter rides our DB30 just fine but when my 14yo son gets on it's flintstone time, as for my 225# ass forget about it! This looks like a great alternative to repowering! I have a BMI/comet jackshaft n.i.b. but am saving it for another project. Look for me to buy this product in the near future as my daughter's confidence grows!

    A properly tuned 2.8 engine should reach around 27mph with a jackshaft system setup with the 13t-18t sprocket combo. I have heard of some Stock geared DB's being able to maybe hit 30 on flat ground and with a light rider. But without the JS system the acceleration and hill climbing performance is very poor. You can play with the gearing and install a 14t in place of the 13t and get more top speed. But as you gain top speed you will loose take off speed and hill climbing performance. You can easily tune the bike to your needs.
    Also make sure your throttle stop screw down on the linkage where the cable hooks up is backed out all the way or even remove it. The governor will still keep the engine from over speeding.
    PM me or call me and I can help with different sprocket choice's. We can also talk about the discount. Any members still interested in a OMB discount can PM me before they place the order and I will set you up with the reduced price.
