Taunted with free shipping, I had to try it.

It fits, barely, with pressure on the stand mount.

Easily remedied.

Oh yeah, Didn't use any sealant just to see if simo did any better job on their clamps than polini and tecno...nope

Leaky vespa exhaust, what's new right? Glad you're doing a kinetic. I'm always eyeballing my frame still sitting under the workbench. It was fun... But so damn flimsy. I didn't feel safe but it was unique at least.

Hell yeah dude. I love those pipes.

Yup, been 'doing' this kinetic off and on for half a decade lol, zero fucks given to the haters. It is definitely different, and a challenge.

Subframe is definitely the flimsy part, better shocks/mounts helped immensely. I've been thinking about making a better one for years of course, made some drawings of a trellis design with easy engine drop-out, some day I'll get to it. I also have a later model subframe that's made from better quality stampings and has fewer unnecessary holes around the carb (so there's some actual metal there not just a few thin pieces to break in between). I'll see how that does once re-enforced and seam-welded first, it really does need a longer one though, like Si length, always wants to wheelie out from under me.

Speaking of which, can anyone get me some measurements of Si, bravo, or grande sub-frames? The only one I really need is center of crank-shaft to center of transmission input shaft, doesn't have to be super-duper exact.

I am a little worried about what's gonna happen if I ever space it and try to hop up on a curb...I think longer shocks may be in order.

Thanks!
