your fly is open

it might just be me but it seems like I see more and more peds going around with their flywheel exposed. just curious if there is some special significance to this or if there is a major shortage of covers?

If Hpi or other cdis it will fry if it gets hot

Aftermarket Hpi and many cdi's are for race not street

Re: your fly is open

I got tired of taking it off and putting it back on all the time. Now I leave it off.

But I havnt needed to do anything with my flywheel in years :\

I leave it off so i can flick it with my foot to start the ped.

Re: your fly is open

People do it on U tube. There's a reason, have you actually watched what people do on U tube? I am not going there.

Re: your fly is open

I left mine of because I am fat and that makes me lazy. Too lazy to put my cover back on.

Some times i do ,but most of the time i find you standing next to my ped holding a ear of corn with a big smile on your face!

What happens next is why you don't cover it.

Re: your fly is open

I have run a cover over my HPI (both the metal and clear) with zero issues for a year. I would worry more about HPIs getting wet than overheating.

I've seen very few french bikes that actually have covers to begin with.

Re: your fly is open

All of my french do when I get them but by the time you swap ignitions they don't fit. Both of my av10s do but thats because I didn't swap the ignition on one so the cover fits and the other is a kickstart so theres not really a cover to take off.

As far as my other bikes, both my za50s have covers because they are painted and I think they are pretty. All of my other bikes don't have them because I start messing with them. Then by the time I'm done, I've lost the hardware (2 bolts). Because its not a size I have sitting around, I just leave them off.

leave it off on my E50 because the ignition has a bad time if it rains and it can't dry out. For some reason.

I did it for a little while, mainly because I was messing with my timing a lot and kept forgetting to put it on, but I'm always afraid I'm going to lay the bike down and the flywheel is going to chew into my ankle at 2000 RPM.

Edit: I accidentally a word (edited)

Re: your fly is open

i have none usually because i put them on bikes i sell. makes em pretend to be nicer.

so whatever bike isnt for sell has the cover.

i like charlie's deathtrap buzzsaw uncovered flywheel.

Re: your fly is open

also, had the kickstart flywheel kick thing goin on with this maxi i sold this dude greg. it was funny, i could get it almost always within the first 2 or 3 tries, and he'd be kicking it over and over, never getting it

I dunno, i thought it was pretty fun. havent tried it since that bike though.

Re: your fly is open

I just mounted a sweet new flywheel cover:
