I did a thing

9&13

No 🤣

I may have to get another bike 🤣🤣

I rode it down the street(w a flat ft tire &#129315 didnít seem crazy, but I did stay out of the powerband

Any idea how I can put a throttle limiter?

Hmmm just read about putting a washer in the exhaust header and enlarging the hole as they get more accustomed

Would be alot easier to train them on the fiddy with no clutch and less power. Few months on the fiddy and they can move to the 65, then sell me the fiddy,

Send it over to the house with another $200 bucks and we can make it super fast using the stock head. Ha!

that 80 is way better for a beginer than the 65. totaly diffrent. one is a race bike and the other is a woods bike. There are little kids clearing huge jumps on a 65. Probaly way faster than other could keep up with on a big bike at a dirt track.

This is how the obsession with minis begin, they are so cheap and so much fun to ride. I cant believe you ordered a new carb for the 50, you can clean the old one in 15 minutes. Did you get the Keihin or an aftermartket?
