I'm upgrading a 8hp Robin motor to a HF VTwin 670cc motor, the shaft is now 1" instead of the Robins 3/4. It has a TAV30 torque converter on it now. Can I but just the Driver/Driven Clutch side of the TAV40 that is 1" and keep the reset of the torque converter the same?

it has a 7 hp Robin motor, anyway I can squeeze out more HP with a jetted carb, new air intake, and new exhaust? I don't see ANY performance kits for these. I am only...

I am on my LAST Baja build (so I told my wife), and I found this after stripping the frame today:
Anyone ever see this? This is where the kick stand attaches.
See the "HI" punched into it? Is it a message from the...
When I rebuild a baja minibike, I like to strip it down to bare metal, and powder coat EVERYTHING I can. Replacing all bearings and seals. Its a long process, and a little expensive - but the end product turns out great.

And I found out its a really tight fit. I had to take the muffler protector off, and air filter cover off.
The gas tank cap/knob is centered, so you can't use it with the tank on. I will take the one off the original baja motor and use that if it fits the lifan. The metal tanks hang a lot...
My garage is no longer a place I keep my new 2016 Blacked Out GMC Silverado 1500!
I have been spending the last week with strippers, and not the good kind!
Getting parts ready for powder coating, I will be putting a lifan electric start 6.5 from HomeDepot - on sale $180
I am on my 4th and 5th Rebuild I was lucky in my first 2 rebuilds I did not need to replace (just the inside seals) . I am in dire need of the the hard rubber dust covers that slips on the lower shock absorbers.
Anyone know where I can get these? I have ordered 3 sets online...
I started rebuilding old beat up Baja mini bikes over the last could years. Its addictive!
I have converted two of them to use electric. It gets expensive with electric (batterys, motor, controller).
Here are some pics of my builds.
