The one from GruBee will probably be about the best one to go with. Sadly you can no longer buy one like mine.Thanks for the advice on pulling the head. I watched a few videos about it. I guess I didn't realize the build quality could potentially be so poor. Good thing they are simple engines.
I am looking forward to the light weight zipping around. My smallest Motorcycle weights about 400lbs and my daily rider closer to 800. I'll feel like a kid on a minibike again lol.
Are there any recommended shift kits?
I can see this rabbit hole getting much deeper lol. Its a super cheap way to tinker and have fun. I'll even be able to involve the grandkids.
I created a color coded shifting system for 9 sequential non-redundant ratios. All shifting is done with the left hand. The only time a front chainring is shifted is when in rear sprockets (3) or (5). If I'm going over 7000 rpm at WOT I shift to a higher gear. If I'm going under 6000 rpm at WOT I shift to a lower gear. Take off gears are: 1(1) up hill; all other take offs 2(3). Reduction range is 66.79:1 to 16.25:1. My system also eliminates cross chaining.
Steep hill climbing
Around town use
Open road use
