This thing screams. Almost to fast. Need to take it somewhere and have some real fun. Circling the block is okay for now.

Yeah i think i spent ~$70 in spray paint!

Thanks.

Think I'll take a build break for a month. Then jump back on the krazy Kart.

So i fire up the bike today.......

.....wait let me back up a day. So the other day i fired up the bike and chased the dog in the back yard for about 15 minutes. No problems no issues. It just ran great! (except too much fuel still)


..okay back to today. I grab my (safety helmet) and jump on the bike. going to circle the block before it gets dark.

I get about 5 houses down and at 30mph i hear something beneath my feet. Then the rear tire locks and i skid down the road for 20 feet...

Kill the engine and look down and no chain on the clutch? oh there it is all on the rear sprocket!

Well, I couldn't get it the chain loose. Tire wont spin. I ended up lifting the rear end and trying to roll the front end all the way back home..

..And up on the mini bike cart.

Which is fine i guess. The chain was original chain oiled up and it was super flexible. So jumping a sprocket...i guess i kind of expected it.

But for my krazy kart i ordered #41 and #35 chain. But i have some chain left from my 10 feet i can use.

Guess i never updated that everything is back together and working fine. This time new bolts on rear sprocket and some loctite to hold them in place better!!

Out taking photos today with my daughter. She has a photography class and needed to take a blury background photo. So i got out my mini bike to do some speed runs down the street

i think this one came out the best....which was really my slowest pass.

Oh yah i also picked up a used Cannon Rebel T2i camera for her class. So maybe i will have some better photos this year. or next year. Man the year goes by quick.

Awesome wheelie. You can see the look of determination in your eyes. And the death grip with your hands.
