    Patch-

    You can reinforce those tires and wheels, grease the bearings.... :razz:

    Go by the Goodwill, look for little carrying cases for your traveling tool bag, maybe a school backpack. 8)

    Read those opening hints so you cut the learning time in half, the installation hassles even more. :D

    Post a picture of the bike you plan to use, then you can update the intallation as you go along. :grin:

    Post a MAP down in the traveling section, so we can see your future traveling area. :cool:





    Or watch the calender. :???:

    I'll rub a little salt in it for ya'....I got my first kit IN FOUR DAYS!!!!!!!!
    The second one came in 14 days. I don't think he "makes you wait", he just ships every 10 days, so it depends on when you order.

    The last engines I ordered from him were over a year ago. The website at the time said 7 to 10 days for delivery but it took almost a month. During that time the website went off line and the phone number was not in service. Thought I was out $400 but the engines eventually arrived. Lately though I ordered a part and it was shipped promptly.

  7. I also ordered from Dax over a year ago. I had a few reservations at the time because the website changed while I was waiting, and the kit arrived slightly damaged. IMO, Duane's good people, he's very helpful and prompt when he has the inventory 8)

    Patch,

    I have an quick solution, asking if you and three or four others might try it out on their build. There may be 200 newbies hit us in one month if gas goes to $5, and we can get a buddy system up for newbies, then you could help someone else in a few months when you understand the thing (which you will)..

    Howaboutit? :?

    yeah thats a great idea!! I was already talking to abunch of guys about building some and I think there will be many more with gas prices. So you guys should definatly set that up :grin: Id be happy to help!

    One great thing about the "intolerable, kid at Christmas" wait/feeling. (14 days here) It really did give me time to research many things before I bolted the motor on the bike. It was not in any way a fun wait, but turned out to be mighty productive. After my motor arrived, Dax was on the spot with support and help. Most importantly and as already said, so worth the wait!!!!

    I'm in that position. I ordered two from dax a couple of days ago and I feel like a little kid bursting with excitement in those last few days before Christmas. But this time won't be without it's uses; I'm reading a lot and picking up a lot of hints while I'm waiting. I only hope that I won't forget the really important tips when it comes time to install.

    I would say the 10 days is maximum time. I have had great shipping times from Dax. Parts ussually arrive in 3-4 days and my motor arrived in under the 10days.
     
  15. read a book, plant a tree, feed a starving child in africa, walk to china and bring a kit back yourself...
