Ew. It was better before with the smaller engine.
This engine is way more powerful than the small engine. The bike rides more like a motorcycle now & easily accelerates from any speed. The little engine isn't very powerful. I'm planning on removing this large blue fuel tank & mounting a small plastic one onto the handlebars. It will make the engine look more compact and remove unnecessary weight from the rack.
Thanks for looking,
Tude - that is just sick - i love it - what is the motor capacity and how fast does it go? that is just wild - i really love it!
Its a 2.5 HP Lifan 4 stroke engine(honda clone) 98cc engine. It has gobs of torque for a bicycle application. I ride at half throttle @ 35-40 mph. In full aero tuck position @ Wide opne throttle it will just hit 50mph. I got slicks front & rear & 7" of suspension front & rear. She handles great too....Better known as 'The Beast'...lol
I think that is awesome, but I would try to disguise the engine as something smaller. You had the right idea, by moving to a remote fuel tank and changing the engine cover.
I never did relocate the gas tank or replace the engine cover. I just ride it like it appears in these pics all over the place. I havent been stopped by the law yet, but I do watch out, slow down & pedal whenever I see a police officer in front or behind in the rearview mirror.
