    MBX10 Seat

    I have done this but long ago. I think I just cut the tabs off the bottom of the seats plastic structure then marked the holes. Drilled and inserted metal threaded inserts into the plastic. Its not exact shape but close enough to work.

    Hemi 212cc Predator Increased Compression Clearances

    Some results may vary.black mamba jr, .20 longer rod, .20 off head surface, and steel .oo9 head gasket No ptv clearance problems on 3 hemi duplicate engines checked with clay. I would say without any doubt a stock head would clear with a metal gasket and this combo.

    Mikuni fake vm22 fuel overflow question.

    On a stock carb I can pretty much tilt the bike upside down and fuel stays in the carb. I upgraded to a vm22 and when I unload the bike out my truck gas comes pouring out. Float adjustment or nature of the Chinese beast.

    Front hydraulic brake kit

    The Big Bully

    As for a lifetime membership you could do a year for 25 and a lifetime membership for 125 or in that area with a t shirt and stickers. People love stickers. Its not really the 25 bucks but the action of having to renew. Lifers will gladly pay the money up front. Just having the option is nice...
