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...
I finally downloaded a speedometer app.
Happy to report that my MTD has a top speed of 38.3 MPH. That was on flat ground after a slight downhill I think.
At that speed on crappy pavement I think that is fast enough lol
I received a carb in the mail, it came with some fuel line, so I used it.
It didn’t last long at all, kept drying out and breaking off. Kept cutting it shorter.
Even my see through line that I use for my methanol drag bike lasts longer.
Just a word to the wise.
I got some proper Gates 1/4” fuel...
I noticed that my stock Hs50 seems to float the valves around 3800 RPM. Bike has billet rod and 22mm Chikuni, straight pipe header.
I have a spare set of 18lb valve springs and the automotive style retainers.
Would installing the heavier springs allow me to get som more revs out of the...
I recently upgraded the performance of one of my Hs50s and it now revs up more, and quicker.
My lighting coil is on my stock engine, but I am liking the cammed engine more lol
If I put the lighting coil on the hi po engine, I was wondering if there would be any adverse effects, either...
I have an MTD Trail Flite with 3.25 x 10 trials tires on it. These tires are OK but was looking for something better than OK for when I take it off road. Looking around I am not finding any 3.25 x 10 tires, but found some nice looking 3 x 10 tires.
Would it be a huge problem to use 3 x...
Is it possible to lose enough compression through the valve cover/breather area of an Hs50 to make the engine not start? I can hear air hissing out from that area when I pull it over, and the engine has spark, and is timed correctly. Valves are opening at the correct times, points break...
