Getting a little dirty now, I like it.
I had to split and join the pipe, engine tilt put it into the frame. The difference is pleasing, it'll growl up mild hills in higher gears, seems to help low end a lot.
I plan one more gear change, right now low end is 9-17-9-36-32 from motor to wheel. I have a 18 sprocket coming for jackshaft engine side.
If that's not enough I may swap my crank drive from 36 to 30. Honestly almost there now.
I locked out 6 and 7 sprocket on rear, only shifting thru first 5. Still, it gets to 30mph.
Not more, best I saw was 31.5. And I get there in 4&5 now. Good enough. Its slower speeds offroad where I'm now finding is a blast.
No, that's where I stop.
48cc ain't climbing THAT!
These last few I call Post-Apocalyptic 'Fatbiker. Wierd place, 1930's houses old barns sheds a well.
And lots of mud.
Hookworms aren't the best for this I tell ya, Credit due to me, not the tires, as I didn't mud-plant my face in 35 degree weather. That was a workout.
I really worried about an hour in, it was warming up, there was more mud getting out than going in.
But I didn't worry about the bike! It kicked ass.
After I left trails, I opened it up to shake off some mud for a few miles, and woohoo no fresh rattles.
Me, however, am quite sore. I rode the hell outta it.
