Wow! That's a gorgeous bike! I really like those wheels. What did you have to do to it?

Re: I think I am finally done with it

That Bike does look great. I have a question, though. Why is the carb cocked off at a 90 degree angle to the cylinder? Is that how you have to run a big bore kit and larger carb on the Magnums?

Re: I think I am finally done with it

70cc kit

Paint and install the fairing

Sprocket/chain shortening

Lubed up the rear bearings while the wheel was off.

etc., etc.

Thanks...

Do a search for "Things not explained for speed kit installs" and read the messages.

Re: I think I am finally done with it

im thinkin of puttin on the 70 cc kit on my maxi, whats your top speed? has anything broke yet? do you think its still as reliable? is it worth it?

Re: I think I am finally done with it

I have been cruising at ~40mph but I haven't cracked it wide open yet. There is plenty of throttle left though. I caught myself at ~50mph on a slight downhill slope last Sunday on a beer run.

Nothing has broken.

It starts on the first kick 99% of the time.

Worth it? To be able to travel at the speed limit? Hell yes!

No more front bumpers on my rear-end.....

Re: I think I am finally done with it

I checked out your post and I have a few more questions, if you don't mind Nick.

1. How fast does your bike go now?

2. How many teeth are you running on your front and rear sprockets?

3. Do you think similar results can be achieved on a 1 speed Maxi?

Thanks

Re: I think I am finally done with it

No problem.

1. Look at my reply to Matt in this thread.

2. 18 front 36 rear

3. The 70cc kits advertise that they are for the Maxi so I don't see why not. The only difference I can fortell is that you won't have the low end a two speed has but that's about it.
