    Well, I know HT means "Happy time" which is the pet name (not official name) of the 2stroke China kits that mount inside the frame. The carb you mentioned is an aftermarket item for that kit.

    NT is also a carb, the stock one usually supplied with the 2-stroke kits. It's marked 'NTTC' on the body.

    MB = Motorized Bicycle
    SPB = Sick Bike Parts
    GEBE = Golden Eagle Bike Engines
    Cager = a car or truck driver.
    Lean = too much air
    Rich = too much fuel
    (Also referred towards oil to gas ratio, which is wrong uses for the terminology. Causes confusion.)
    4-stroking = how a 2-stroke engine runs when the fuel/ air ratio is too rich. It skips every other power cycle.
    Manic = abbreviation for Manic Mechanic. He makes special parts for MB's, sold through Pirate Cycles.

    There are more, but I am having a mental block. I do get mental from time to time. :)
