Wrench, wheel, wreck, repeat. Don't lose heart, it's just part of the process.

bring it on over here, I'll test it out for ya! lol

in all seriousness, I'm thinkin there's a LOT of torque on that gooseneck... May need to make it longer, and support it on the bottom. Even a Bike has about 5 inches of neck

I hope yall dont kill me (gasp) I took the torque converter off of the bike. I am putting a centrifugal clutch on it that I had ordered a while back and didn't have a use for ; I know what you are saying why not keep the torque converter on the mini bike? I am not because it is going on the build off.
