Mock Up #1


Mock Up #2


Brush Guard and all.


The Little Pulley Will Go On The Motor. For every 3 1/2 turns of the little pulley the big pulley turns once. Im not sure if this will work but i need new pulleys anyway.


Tell me what you think two seats like Mock Up #1 or one seat like Mock Up #2

Im going to straiten that brush guard out and put it on there no matter what.

is it a opposed twin or a v-twin/single ? my opposed twin had super high compression with shaved heads and being bored .30 over i had to run 95 octane with some octane booster for it to even start but after i ran it alittle bit i just ran 95 octane for about 4 weeks then i put my stock heads on it and it ran alot better so from what i was told and learned opposed twins dont like shaved heads lol

Don't count on it. Your neigbour could have low compression. Your starter's bushings could be dry and dragging, bad brushes, whatever. Lotsa possibilities.
It's very likely the valve lash has gone outta spec or the starter is ailing. Hell, could even be a poor electrical connection.

Yes- bring a torch!

You've already got the springs off? Good- that's the hard part. The driveshaft's easy.

Oh okay. The springs were easy for me to get off with an impact wrend and som WD 40. I just need to disconect the drive shaft then its out. But the driveshaft is being a pain.

Torches make a mess, just leaf spings and driveshaft and some parking brakes are all your fighting.

I guess, I would only use one to cut something up for scrap. I like cordless angle grinders a lot.
