True also i am the budget guy so im bypassing it i refuse to pay for oil to put in an engine i hate. honestly it already is a peice of crap. and i have to put way too much work just to get the thing to go lol. I severely dislike ohv ticrapsehs because they are not reliable enough ever. So this will be ultra budget ticrapseh. Plus if i took out the govenor i would put the old oil back in who cares. Also i do take care of my nice engines which all need oil changes. Enough ranting imma go fix it

Better yet, put raw nitroglycerin in the gas tank!
Go out with a bang! And a crater where you used to be....

If you don't care, you might just bypass it for now, and then acquire a torque wrench later to do it properly.

Mini bike is a Manco Pathfinder.

Obviously not the fully suspended 500 DL or the basic 250 (w/ straight handlebars). Sort of looks like you have one with front shocks, is that right?

With me all sales are final and good riddance.

Are you doing your selling by word of mouth, like in the neighborhood or craigslist, etc?

Since you don't care about that motor, disconnect the governor parts externally, and don't go to all that trouble to split the case, regasket the thing, etc. for that internal gear, it won't slow you down, you plan to go til ya blow anyway.. Looks like the only way to get a TC in there would be jacked up at an angle a 4-stroke couldn't do, that motor has to be a 2-stroke, or the oil will all sit in the front of the case. Roast the tires? Just keep that 72-tooth rear (what it looks like) with a 10-tooth drive, raise the rear tire pressure, put a scrub brake on the front, scoot up on the seat.
