    34 mph on straightaways is what my neighbors. with their digital speedometers, clock me at breaking in engines along the road.

    I can wave one down when I am thinking an engine is running really sweet, but 34 is consistent with the 25 cc GEBE.

    I imagine I'm hitting 38-40 on some steep downhill runs.

    There is a hill, right below my driveway, as steep as any in the county, and Edwin (across the road) says I pull it at 26 mph.

    GPS said 30 mph, or about 48 kph. That was before break-in was complete and with the stock, full baffle with a dax 70cc kit.

    I'm guessing around 35 mph now that it's broken in....haven't used the GPS yet.
  4. I've been through 3 sprockets on my bike, trying to find a good cruising RPM for 30MPH. 44T maxed out at 32MPH (blowing the engine in the process), 39T maxed out at 38MPH, and I've never taken it over 38 with the 34T.

    I was going 35MPH with traffic yesterday and a cop passed me with a thumbs up! I'll take it as a good omen :lol:

    I've seen 36 mph measured on a GPS on a Kings engine with 44 tooth sprocket. My other engines are slower.

    On my Kings 80cc and with my 260 lbs using my analog it registers at 36 MPH but going into a headwind I actually have to bend down to keep it past 20 MPH. 44T Sprocket and a heavy cruiser.

    That's always a good sign. Around here when I see a cop I usually wave or smile. Always get a thumbs up back if i'm following the laws. It helps to be polite :grin:

    Hi I have a 50 tooth sprocket on my 70cc motor I can go about 23 before the bike starts to vibrate to much to stand if i go to a 44 tooth sprocket how much faster will I be and will that help keep the vibration down at higher speeds. and how is that 44 tooth on hills im about 235 ib

    you should get 28-30
    it'll be harder on take-off though

    Hi , I'm 260lb's but more importantly my bike is also heavy. I have Worksman HD wheels and I mean Heavy Duty. The front rim alone weighs in at over 13 pounds without the tire and tube.. And also add a saddle style basket set and other extras and I have a heavy bike. The first engine was a Kings 80cc and I ran a 44 tooth and got good results. It was clocked at 37 mph on flat ground. I still have that engine and plan to install it on another bike soon. The new Dac's 65cc that I got is just now nearing the end of its brake in and really comming into its own.I installed a 36 tooth sprocket and can tell its faster than the old 80cc 44 tooth set up for sure. I'd guess its prob. going to be able to pull 40 mph on flat ground if I dare to do it.........T

    are you still breaking in your engine? how many tanks of fuel have you used?

    my most recent break in...I'm on my 7th tank of fuel. ( 3,5 gallons)
    this engine is just now starting to run high rpms.

    on a new 23 mph, the vibration you are feeling is prolly caused by.....the new engine is not ready to run that fast. take it easy for a few tanks of fuel. push it some...just don't push too hard. your engine will tell you when it's ready to run wide open. (Fast)
    you will be able to feel (almost hear it) when the rings seat & it's ready to rev it up....move down the road.
    my 55cc bike (broke in) will run a solid 28 mph with a 50 toothed sprocket. It will pull me from a standing start & climb hills like a goat. :lol:

    patience....break it in. they all seem to get stronger ,with time.

    I would not trade the take-off power for any more top speed. imho

    I have only used 1 gallon and 1/2 of gas and using synthatic oil 1:18 ratio with 87 gas. Its more the vibration that gets to me; anything else i can do to stop vibration that you know off.

    can you power through the vibes ?
    my chopper vibrated your hands off the bars at 22-24, but then it smoothed out

    I believe the consensus was to break-in with dino oil, then switch to synth if you want
    (the synth will take a lot longer to seat the rings)

    I have a 70cc Chinese joby with a highly moded carby and exhaust, uped compression and port timing and boost bottle running through a 44t rear sprocket. The pipe comes on at about 48Ks ( depending on terrain ) and rockets me up to 57.4 Kmph on the flat with no wind. Been reluctant to push it any more for obvious reasons. I generally cruise at between 40-45Ks and the motor seems to like it.

    Old petrol heads never die they just loose their cubic cenimetres.

    Wow, talking about fossil hunting :) This post was nearly two years old! :)

    Okay Hawaii Ed, tell 'em how fast you go.:detective:

    On the flats, downhill or with a tailwind, Ed has to wait for me to catch up.

    I run 40mph on the flats with twin 43cc Mitsubishi engines and 330 pounds of man and machine.

    I need higher gears because my engines are screaming.
