Last time I tried to upload photos to my photos here on the website, it didn't take.
Have to figure it out. I'll check out that forum.
I noticed my new HF Predator 6.5hp doesn't have that step on the shaft others are mentioning. I can slide a 3/4 inch washer all over it. no step.
I repowered it with a hf predator 6.5 and brought it to Windber 2012. Had a blast on the trails! All kinds of power and I weigh 235lbs.
BTW keep bottom half of shipping frame as itakes a very stable way to haul your Minibike. I just fold handlebars down and slide it in back of my Outlander...
I have a mbx10. I swapped out the rear bolts from the seat for longer Bolts and added a stiff 2 inch spring on each bolt. I put blue permatx thread lock on threads in seat so you don't lose the bolts when riding.
I'm looking for these 4 bolts for the predator 6.5 212 cc as well. It seems they are some kind of metric M7 bolt. 5/16 24 UNF works on Hondas but not the new Predators.
Have you fount the correct bolts for yours yet?
I believe I do need the one on the key . Without it, my clutch slides 1/2 inch to 1 inch on the shaft with just the key and end bolt. I do use the 2 small washers and lock washer setup before the fender washer.
Ok. Good to know..
BTW Ace, Ogy, What in your opinion is a good Torque Wrench Ft/Lbs setting for that crank bolt?
On a 3/4" shaft is 17 ft lbs sufficient? I read some 6.5hp Clone Specs said 30 ft lbs.
Also do you need both setscrews or just the one on the Key?
Don't like the idea of gouging...
Yes Set screws removed . I just tried the Rubber mallet quick hit on the wrench and it came off!
I have noticed some play between the clutch bell and the snap ring that holds it on. Is this normal? Or should I shim it somehow?
I did use some WD 40 . On another thread I read you can try hitting the wrench on the bolt quick with a hammer.
Also , the clutch bolt isn't reversed is it? Not sure...
BTW I introduced myself to Gumpit up in Windber . Great Guy! And cool campsite. Saw the infamous Buckeye hanging out on His...
I'm having trouble removing the max torque 3/4" clutch bolt from the end of the horizontal Shaft on a 6.5 hp 212cc predator engine.
The clutch is mounted w sprocket side facing toward the engine. I try holding a large flat blade screwdriver against the back of clutch through hole but it won't...
I have a motovox mbx10. I removed the stock engine and replaced it with a predator 6.5hp hf engine. I put longer bolts and added springs under the seat for comfort. It is a well made sturdy bike. I weigh over230 lbs and with the old we motor I can go up hills no problem. I took it to Winber 2012...
