Bah yeah I really want to avoid the lame starting issues. I agree on the price thing. I just really like the stock looks of the metra. Seems like a lot of people love the 65. Man even a one way bearing bike seems like kind of a hassle to start to me.
I probably will not be able to salvage the crank due to this being a junkyard engine with no intake and sitting at tdc for who knows how many rain/snow seasons in the dang dirt. Is anyone trying those cheap pp pr cranks on treats? I might try to lathe down the cheeks/see if it will just fit? IDK.
