    Hello everyone, just checking in as a new user. Anyone on here in or around Milwaukee, WI? I just got my shifter 2 stroke running and would love some riding buddies.

    Welcome aboard.

    I can't think of anyone off-hand who's in or near Milwaukee. But that doesn't mean much.

    Have fun.
     
  3. 25 mi. NW, Hartford area, welcome aboard Oracle. I am new here too building slowly a Huffy Davidson 4 stroke.
    This is a super resource for enthusiasts of motorized bicycles. A workmate from Hartford was the catalyst for my renewed interest in these machines.

    I am in Pewaukee WI and have my a 4-stroke and 2-stroke. The 4-stroke is new and not broken in yet so not sure if I will ride her too far and I am rebuilding my 2-stroke.

    Right on, I'm getting the bugs of the shift kit worked in. Maybe let's all plan a ride once we get broken in and warm outside?

    Surely, surely. Where are you in Milwaukee? North, south, east, west?

    West Allis for now, but hopefully moving to Waukesha sometime soon.
     
  10. Well if I ever get this machine so it doesn't throw the chain when I back it up....

    I had that same problem. My issue was the motor sproket and bolt on back sprocket weren't alligned strait, and there is a tight and a loose point when chain rotates.
    I think at first I also had mounted sprocket on tire backwards. The sprocket dish should curve out wards and when mounting it to tire make sure when u spin tire sprocket spins nice and round not oblong. Hope this helps good luck you'll get it.

    Spoke too soon and had chain problems on the way to my shop. I didn't install the jump stop and Milwaukee streets are as bad as riding off-road. New chains here now though and I'll be install it and the jump stop tomorrow probably.
     
  14. The alignment has been a bit off. Some of the problem could also be my using a 31 tooth rear.
    A workmate has the same set-up but is using only three of the four mount screws because the engine mount screw slots are 1mm short front to rear. As a result his engine is angled a bit. Must be something to it.

    I know I had chain problems at first, I got rid of the chain tensioner all together and pushed the engine towards the bike drive side (pressure on the top of the cylinder head on the engine drive side) that squared the output sprocket up with the rear sprocket.
