Finally got it measured tonight. .627 so that's 5/8" in my book. Looks like I'll be getting that dang bushing after all. I forgot to figure the length of key I need. Anyone?
I'd go figure it out myself, but I'm in bed already and I'm in the mood to impulse order cool stuff.
Interesting. As long as the key tolerance is somewhat tight, it might be the way to go. I haven't taken the time to mic what I have yet. I'll try to make time tomorrow.
Thanks for making an effort to check it out fellas.
I'd be willing to bet a lot of the OldMiniBikes patrons here are older and bigger than one would first think. Lol.
Although not huge, I'm 225 and pushing 50. Why I renewed interest in minibiking....I have no idea where that came from. But I'm really digging it. When I was 12 I bought a used heald trail...
For my Ct200u. Says it's a comet replacement 218353a. I assume it's just like the rest of the comet clones. It's a 10 tooth 40/41 (420 chain right)? What is the comet belt part# I need?
I figure I'll need a chain breaker and master link as well.
What you think of this unit?
Definitely something to consider. I'll do latter mods I mentioned and see how she goes.
Cams are something I'll have to research at some point. There seems to be a lot of different grinds out there. If there's one thing I've learned, is not to invite a tuning nightmare to your project by...
Thanks for the input guys. I was wondering about those same issues. When bone stock it struggles on a couple of key hills that I have to go up. I can't get enough speed to get the clutch into lockup. If I do get it locked up the minimum speed I need to maintain is too fast for the road...
From OldMiniBikes warehouse
Basically includes angled air filter
Bored out stock carb (jet size and emulsion tube not mentioned)
1" header w/screw on muff
Valve springs (doesn't state spring tension, guessing 18lb)
Choke hold bracket
if this is a worthy kit, I'd like it to work well with a tav clutch...
Thx for the tip danford. It would be nice to get rid of that annoying noise from stock clutch too.
The Carl Heald trail bronc I had as a kind had a tc too. Loved it. Of course I weighed 120 lbs at that time lol.
Right now I'm researching engine/intake/exhaust mods. Looking at OldMiniBikes WH for ideas but am confused as to which way to go. I don't see any descriptions for the headers/muffs that are listed as far as differences in performance are concerned.
I plan to gear way down and get rpm's up a bit...
