    Hey folks,
    Has anyone used the GEBE setup with either the Titan XC50 or new Super Titan XC50 engine from Dax? The Super Titan seems like a totally awesome engine. If you did this setup, how hard was it to hook up the engine to the GEBE setup?

    Lastly, has anyone used a GEBE with the Honda GHX50. I also like this engine.

    Thanks for your input.

    hi ollicat.

    i gave "Wheres my dog" my GEBE/Titan input/opinion in this thread:
    using the Honda would require installing a clutch assembly and a suitable "straight-thru" housing...seems to me it would be hanging pretty far "out there" by the time you were finished.

    Aha! That is what I was afraid of. Too much power and weight for the GEBE. What about a Mitsubishi TLE 43?

    beach cruzin sometimes uses a mits-clone 49cc without a problem, a real mits-43 would be comparable i'd long as you pedal-help during acceleration i think you'd be fine :)

    Mits TLE43 used on a GEBE drive here and no problems whatsoever. I'm in the habit to be cautious with all my MBs though, so pedal to start 8 or 10 strokes of the crank then ease on the throttle.

    Just for the sake of the argument, and the relevant knowledge to post here....

    When I get my GEBE up and running ( very hopefully today ) on my GIANT, I will see if at night time I can try and see how my Titan XC50 fits and at least looks hanging on there.

    If it seems safe, I may take it for a short ride and see how it feels....

    This is all depending on my larger axle showing up today though!!!!

    Got my new carb for my titan engine, and thought it would be up and running, but to no avail!

    I am just waiting to get it running so when I hook it up I can take her for a ride and give more details on the gebe titan setup for reference here!

    Hopefully very soon....

    The titan will not run absolutely more then a few seconds and then dies...

    Called Duane and he asked for me to ship it back to him and he will send me out another engine.

    May be two weeks or so before I get it back from him, so keep this in mind.... and when I get the engine, I will follow thru with the GEBE setup and run!

    Size sprockets...... meaning how many teeth on the drive sprocket, or how wide is the drive sprocket?

    Did not forget you.... still waiting on my Titan to come back. He got mine in his shop last week, so hopefully he will ship it out to me and I hoperfully get it by this week or very early next week.

    Yet another update...

    Just spoke to Duane on the phone who gave me the fedex tracking number, and it is slated to arrive on Saturday the 1st.

    Being I work Saturday, Sunday, and Monday, I will not get to fiddle with her until Tuesday.

    Stay tuned...

    ok ok, I get the hint, but I have an excuse....

    I was just about to try out the TITAN on my GIANT GEBE when I noticed all the leftover square tubing I had along with some bearings and go kart parts and started building a motorized scooter!

    Oh man, she is a thing of beauty! All I have left to do is weld on some handlebars to the steering column and I am ready to take her on the streets and test her out!

    Back to the GEBE TITAN..... will try and fit it on tomorrow or thursday and see how it looks!
