Bead looks dry. Proper tire lube is your friend. And you should have that tire/wheel outside under the sun not inside with A/C.

Yes, lube was key.

Momma not happy, but sometimes you gotta be resourceful!

Front installed and clashy decal removal. Parker going to emulate one of my old race bikes. Feeling honored, waiting for more parts!

Yeah I soap the out of the beads and wheels and leave that in the sun for two hours. Bike looks sick, how does it run out of the box?

Hard to tell simply because the gearing is so far off. Plus the stock CDI box has it neutered. Still awaiting parts for our first test n tune!

But the few runs we did down the street with dirt tires, it seemed very responsive and torquey.

Rear tire was even worse than the front. Our buddies at Discount Tire mounted but kids forget to tell them to seat the bead. Some starter fluid and grill lighter fixed that. I’m sure not the most safe thing I ever did, but sure beat the strap method.



Rear tire shim alteration. Hack saw method builds character, right?



So close! Waiting on sprockets, chain, finish CDI box and a shin washer then it’s on to a test n tune date!

If anyone around Houston has a 37 tooth 76mm sprocket to lend we would appreciate it. My attention to detail was lacking in ordering multiple WRONG sizes. New shipment to arrive Thursday. We would like to test n tune before that.

Ahh yes, the inevitable, never ending frustrations of ordering car/bike parts online.

GL man looks dope so far

Test n Tune today went well. Parker reports the bike turns quick and the brakes are awesome.

Bike seems to rev much slower than his sisters SSR. Hayden gets him in the straights. We will continue to let the bike break in and change some gearing for tomorrow.

Last minute engine swap. Bored up Hayden’s old piranha engine from 90cc to 107cc. Made a huge difference. But Parker is still down on power a bit. However the gap is closing on the bikes he is chassing!
