    Clutch Brake Talk

    There has been a lot of discussion on OMB lately regarding clutch brakes. My foray into finding a solution for ADDING a clutch brake to my minibikes that would be both effective and compatible with my preferred clutch guards opened vistas of new understanding for me. I felt compelled to share it...

    Someone To Bend and Weld A Custom Header For Predator

    I'm going to try what Manchester said and try to find a local muffler shop to do it. Basically though what I'm looking for is to shorten them so they don't stick out past the frame. The first one is the OMB underseat header, it's too elongated and the muffler adds 7". I would like a pipe that...

    Help! My brand new mini bike refuses to start--clone engine

    Hey GO blue, sounds like you're set too low. On your carb turn the black idle screw a quarter turn clockwise and restart. Like buckeye says slowly turn the choke off. Put the front wheel up against the wall so it don't jump on you! Once it's running you can turn it more or less til it hits a...

    Help buying clutch

    Tator, I'm using the same engine, mods and rear sprocket as you. I started initially with the basic Max-Torque clutch and I had problems with the clutch engaging at idle, or staying engaged when I wanted to stop. It was not the idle setting. It was hell figuring that out but switching to the...

    My mini bike is trying to kill me

    Minibikes are cute. I think we forget that these are powerful little things. For exactly this reason, anytime I make a major clutch, idle or jet change, I put the front wheel up to the wall when restarting.

    Birch Man

    This is the Allace Heartly Project. I've played with Allace (pronounced like Wallace) for a good part of the last ten years touring casinos in CA, NV and AZ. Very strong voice, this is his solo project. A one man band but no drum machine for Allace! He says I spoiled him and if he must perform...

    Birch Man

    Steve, yes that was definitely syncopated. I started playing so long ago (53 years!) in the beginning I was into Gene Krupa, Jack Sperling (Pete Fountain) Buddy Rich, whatever my parents were playing on the record player. When the Beatles first came out in '64, I thought Ringo was retarded for...
