Finally got around to messing with the new build. I want a bike with lights, but also electric start. That leaves out the traditional Hs40 aluminum flywheel and lighting coil since there are no starter gear teeth.
I was able to get a charging coil/lighting coil and flywheel, but is is iron and...
So my MTD Trail-Flite has had a problem with the head tube since i got it. I suspect that the bike was previously crashed and repaired.
The headlight brackets were bent flat. The footpegs were collapsed, and there is some extra welding done on the head tube.
I noticed the forks were not very...
My nephew came over yesterday, he's only 3 but i decided to see if he would get excited about minibikes.
Haven't started the bike since early spring. Fuel is treated. 5 pulls on choke and it started and ran great.
Nephew loved it
Incan't wait to build him a bike lmao
I have a GEM intake manifold. I got it with a bunch of other parts.
It is in the original packaging, part # G2241
I know GEM made intakes for 2-strokes and maybe some other engines. It doesn’t seem to fit any of the Tec and B/S engines I have here.
Does anyone know what engine this intake fits...
Well I haven’t run my drag byke in a couple years. I want to change that this year.
Is anyone else interested in racing?
Is the Leadfoot deal gone forever? Or is there any chance we can help to get that going again?
Any interest in trying to race at Gomas?
Tired of the byke sitting here...
My understanding of the grounding of lights, etc powered by an AC rectified to 12v DC using a battery, is that those grounds need to go back to the negative battery post, and not grounded to the frame.
My question is, what about things that already ground through the frame like the...
I am in the process of trying to get my MTD Trail Flite into street legal condition. Found some DOT tires, now onto the hand controls.
It has been difficult finding hand controls that will fit 7/8" bars, that have all the necessary switches, and don't cost a fortune.
Also looking for...
I see different colored driven springs listed, but they don’t have good descriptions like the driver springs have.
I am looking for a later overdrive, but still want it to get into overdrive.
Comet has yellow listed as a 30 series torsion spring, but also lists a gold compression...
I recently had some problems with my tach. Thought I was topping out at 3800-4000RPM but after re wrapping the wire I am getting 7-8000RPM readings. That tach would turn off and reset all the time so I took it off and replaced it with a different unit. On the original unit I wrapped it...
I need to replace my recoil pull cord. It’s an old Tec Hs50
I would like it to perform properly and last a decent while.
I have a few engines here that could use some help in that department.
Any good recommendations for pull cord? I don’t mind buying a bunch but I don’t need a gigantic...
