    Post some pics. If you don't have anything assembled, you can post pics of your motor and other parts.

    the 100cc bigbore and crank kit. or just the 70cc bigbore kit.

    change out the variator/speed reduction and clutch springs.

    get a decent tuned pipe. not the $1200 one on ebay from america, but the exact same one from the original manufacturer for $120, also on ebay :)

    totally bad choice of engine for just about anything but sticking back in the original scooter frame ;) heavy, has that gearbox thing attached...did you get a short or long arm?

    $100 bucks aint bad but ive been GIVEN two in just the past month, one thrashed, one almost brand new in a quad bike... yes, a complete quad bike, only been buzzed around an hour max by some 6 year olds.

    good luck. youll need it! this is the wrong forum entirely except for the frame your contemplating... a bruchcutter type engine is far superior...

    only thing you get with the gy6 is easy parts, reliability as its meant to be a road going scooter... 100,000km sort of thing...
