oh first hurdle overcome, well almost.
I figured out the motor surging was a dirty carburetor, a full clean and rebuild solved that and the idling issue.
I need to figure out the Governor issue and the alignment issue with the TAV.
But one step closer.
That could be a cool idea, I think I would at least like to see it. I do think I might pose an issue turning side by side like that.
Something to think about maybe dually in the and a single wider tire in the front.
I would like to see the posts as to why not do it there seems to be some...
I second the Bad Dog frame at least. Mine was a bit rough but clean up wasn't that bad and a great place to start.
Take a look at mine I am 6' and was about 240 when I built it and it is very comfortable.
Plus the balloon tires add some cushion.
Wardog, congratulation sir the bike looks great. I can't wait to see what else you have in mind for the add-ons.
What is the OD of your handle bars? I am trying to find a thumb throttle for mine but my bars are 1" making it tough to find anything...
Brakes included, I am also interested in...
I built one from a kit 5 years ago but was never really happy with it.
Recently dug it out and am fixing it up as I can, trying real hard not to take it to a small engine guy.
BTW outstanding first build...
Sweet ride, great job.
After being here for several days maybe a week I think I need to go find a beginners board. Everyone here seems to be a master fabricator, engine builder, MiniBike/GoKart experts.
Feeling shy now...
Thank you for the white paper on the TAV30. I'll have to check it but I need to get the engine running properly first ar at least at the same time. I think I need to find an inexpensive mechanic that doesn't cost me more than a regular mechanic. :doah:
Without sounding stupid how do you align those pulleys?
The Torq a Verter came on the engine. So I have never messed with it.
I mounted the engine and tried to pull the slack out of the chain (I think I need a tensioner) but that was it.
Thank you, but it could be a lot cooler.
Anyway the brake doesn't seem to be rubbing, I know it doesn't stop me very well and would like a better braking solution.
My son just counted the teeth and tells me it is a 60 tooth sprocket, While I want to go faster 35 - 40 ish I also want to still...
