Well, where would we meet up? PP1? I get off work at 5pm, but I can make it to PP1 in like 5 minutes.


Are these places even open on the week day? (I never go to Harwin)

, what is the going price on these? FYI, if you buy one of these, assemble it yourself. Check every nut and bolt for proper torque and apply a little loctite to all of the engine mounts and anything else that you can see. Make sure everything is well greased before you put too much time on it. I have heard stories about people trying to adjust the shocks on some models, only to find out the shocks were never even filled with oil. lol. For more info on your pitbikes, check out planetminis.com or thumpertalk.com under the pitbike section. How well is your bike holding up Arturo? Good looking perimeter frame!

If you can change the oil on your bike, you can assemble this thing. Probably only have to mount the bars and wheel sets etc. Motor and electrical should be in place already. Also, I would drain the cheap oil they put in it (if it's filled) and use a higher quality motor oil that's formulated for wet clutch application. Should use less than 2 quarts. How much are these bikes going for around there? I may have to go check them out. Oh yeah, find a spoke wrench and keep the spokes tight. they WILL come loose, and it's only a matter of time before the wheels self destruct if you don't keep the spokes tight. last, there is a company selling 12 0clock bars for these minis somewhere. I will try to find it for you guys. and one more thing. get some handguards so you don't have to replace your grips and levers everytime you drop the bike. they will save you money and downtime in the longrun. let me know how everything turns out. JET

yeah, what is the price on these? They are a knockoff of an SSR pitbike(which is a knockoff of another pitbike), but apper to be structurally sound IMO. Check out pitsterpro.com for a good bike at a relatively low price. If interested i can tell you where to get one for less than 1600 shipped to your door. anyhow, check out ministothemax.com and click on the links button for all sorts of pitbike related pages. let me know if you need anything else. jet
