    Iam thinking of trying a 14 h.p. Morini 6 speed or a 22 h.p. KTM 6 speed 2 stroke because i need gears on mountain trails--some are very steep i have the SCSW Pipelyne Industries bike---do you think ill tear the components apart ? Can you forsee any problems ??

    That pic is of a 50 cc motor at best, where do you come up with these other motors and the foolishness of putting a 14 hp or a 22hp motor on a bicycle? YOUR NUTZ!

    In conjunction with the fore mentioned statement, just remember, you only die once ! Most states have a max of 2 horse power to be legal on public property. Not just streets. The kind of horse power you're talking about here would certainly be a death trap on a bicycle ! You would be very lucky if you only tore up your bike with that much power, and not your body !

    maybe some reinforcing of frame would be a good idea ??
    I will admit that I would like to try someTHING like the same sometime
    problem I forsee as already mentioned

    the pooolice where I live will not like the THING at all -- fast ticket here I would think ??

    even though I talk with the Pooolice every once in a while
    I know deep in my heart they are not my pal !!!

    My only prob with high horsepower (around 9hp) has been having the engine rip itself off the motor mounts. I redid the motor mounts and think I resolved that issue, but I also detuned the engine so it's not such a problem. I didn't need all that power, and it seriously effected my mileage.

    i feel the same with the of the guys. i have this same bike and the motor is plenty. just buy a moto x bike. this combo works well just the way it is.
