Sick Bike Parts shift kit with a dash of Tabasco sauce

    Now if only Sick Bike Parts could re-engineer their shift kit and monkey around with this engine to make the two work in symbiotic harmony - oh what a smooth vibration free feeling; not to mention the CDI works on 6 volts enabling the magneto to be deleted and replaced with a power coil and rectifier.
    As standard the engine comes equipped with a Walbro carburettor and CNC machined components, all for $330 dollars.

    Sick Bike Parts, will you stand up and do your funky thing in the engineering design room!

    That's a cool looking motor. Just strap it down to a luggage rack on the back of your bike, add a big prop and you're good to go. Use a variable pitch prop and you won't need a shift kit.

    That's awesome looking!
    too bad it's not a v-twin design (like an indian or harley).

    Naturally, we all want a small capacity V-twin 2-stroke engine for our motorized bicycles, but a compact V-twin can't work if using a common crankcase, hence the reason for a boxer twin cylinder design.
    It keeps everything as simple as possible; has perfect engine balance, offering significantly reduced vibration as well as minimal weight for a twin cylinder engine.

    It's times like these that i wish to be a benevolent dictator of some 1st world country that had the resources to send in the equivalent of a Navy Seals team to hot extract Jim from the SickBikeParts headquarters and transfer him to a scientific laboratory in a country that doesn't have an extradition treaty with North America.

    Jim would not only be housed in palatial surroundings but graced with the finest food and wine, whilst he works tirelessly on a revolutionary shift kit that adapts to a twin cylinder engine and as people around him (with a German accent) repeat - "you vil verk till ze design is perfect und alles ist in ordnung"

    Granted that this action might cause a few political issues, but sometimes you've got to take the hard line on these matters.
