    i've been reading threads about Phoenix, Az....
    while i have yet to venture into Phoenix i will say that most parts of Gilbert are wonderful to ride in, and Chandler is a pretty nice place (bad drivers are everywhere) but at least there's only a stop light every half to full mile...

    what i ride:

    some kind of random Trek mtn bike 26" wheels
    i have a 48cc Skyhawk and have just ordered a new muffler as the one that came with my kit had a piece fall off of it within a week...

    i wonder if it's normal for broken mufflers to spout fire and glow red hot when descelerating or idling after red-lining for a couple miles.....

    Welcome to the forum. I just sold my house in Chandler this month.
    I enjoyed riding in the East Valley when I lived there.

    That must be quite a sight at night!! <grin> However, I am not an expert on 2-strokes, but but if you post in our 2-stroke Forum,. I am sure you will find a guru to help.

    Must be very loud also. If you are running just the little header piece it will do that.
