    DB30 Stock Clutch Retaining Bolt: 5/16-24 y/n?

    Hey Doc, thank you...but.. ANSWER: The stock DB30 97cc 2.8hp 16mm clutch retaining bolt is an M8 x (about) 30mm. I took the first M8 bolt, lock washer and washer from my trusty $5 bolt/nut kit from Princess Auto (our Northern Tool). Voila. ~Rex.

    lol, I'm 230 or so and the doodle+jackshaft make up for a lot. Try this thread for a bunch of tire suggestions plus how to get around the caliper clearance (grinder): DB30 Tire thread The old ones when smooth can hold a pavement corner pretty good. :D

    DB 30 Tires

    :grind: ok, another contender. Nova Scotia is a combo of bedrock, bush scrub and greasy slimy sedimentary mud. This looks right with the big clearing lugs. Rough for road work though. 15 x 5 x 6 X-Trac Snowblower Tire Part #: 8-12765-H2 $39.99 8-12765-H2 - 15 x 5 x 6 X-Trac Snowblower...

    DB 30 Tires

    Exactly! Around here it's 100% greasy clay with no actual soil to speak of. Your boots go to a size 22 with the mud packed on. OK OK Snow Hogs it is! lol

    DB 30 Tires

    Craigslist Doodlebug/Rivet/Dirtbug/Viper finds

    Insanity everywhere. :) Around here the average DB30 goes for 200-300 busck each. They hold value since there isn't usually many around. I found mine because a Military Police officer suggested this particular bike be sold asap. :)
