    Doodlebug 6.5 engine swap kit

    anyone know? Even if you put a 6.5hp engine the rpms are still the same? Meaning the engine is more powerful but not necessarily faster at the top end?

    doodlebug DB30 throttle

    My two cents...I have a daughter who would ride on the Doodlebug with me, it of course was very sluggish. I put on the Jackshaft and now it pulls myself and daughter around no problem, I also loosened the throttle screw to give it a bit more juice. I will wait until she is older before I start...

    Back Tire Wear

    been riding around on my dirt bug with my daughter, I'm about 205lbs, add her about 40lbs...anyway there seems to be extreme wear on the left side of the back wheel, is that from the weight or is it rubbing against something I can't see, when I'm off the bike the wheel isn't touching anything...

    Motovox Doodle

    It looks kinda cool...wouldn't mind getting one, something other than Baja, might be worth a try, especially if it's under 300 bucks. ANyone know if they sell'em in Canada
