Still out of my budget right now lol. The helmet was a shock I had no idea I'd need one .may sell this bike and build a 4 stroke unit . I just need help on hills so even 1/3 of a horsepower would be cool
Even a fall from standing upright can do damage if you hit your head. Hospitals are more expensive than helmets.

i used to mix 2 cycle oil in my van during fill ups.
+

Did the same thing in my Grand Cherokee.
Idled smoother, was faster, had better throttle response & got better gas mileage,, ran better in every way!

If you add 2-stoke oil to the gas of a newer car, your dash will light up like a Christmas tree.

I love it's simple build today i pulled the head to see if all is ok had access to the piston. Total job was like 10 minutes and that includes c!ean the carbon of head and piston. Same job in your cars can take days

Tech Tip: with piston at TDC brush a small amount of paint remover on piston dome. The remover dissolves carbon. Let it sit for awhile then can be just wiped off without scraping and digging at aluminum piston.. Just keep the remover away from cyl wall as much as possible. If a little gets into rings no worries it will just blow out upon fire-up.
