Kewl Lil ripper honestly gonna just straight pipe it and cruse once I fix the carb problem, it runs though.
Could use some tinkering and tlc but it's mint I call it taco or mini Bob. Whadda guys think I traded my non running subaru 13.5hp I really didn't feel like messing with it anymore so there ya guys go I'll update it every now and then.

Welp, good luck with that Tec flathead carb.
I would slap on a Chinese Briggs Flo-Jet and call it good, they're only like $15 on Ebay.
Other than the cost of OEM parts, aftermarket upgrades, and the notorious carbs, I don't really have much against Tec flatties.
As far as upgrades I'd just remove the governor, straight pipe it, high flow air filter, and thrash it!
Nice! Got a Max Torque SS clutch!

That's a nice minibike.

Why would anyone go out of there way to put a flow-jet on something?

A PZ19 is a much better option or an adjustable Tecumseh carb., if you can't get that one straightened out.

If you must name it I'd call it Taco Bob.

I added the "Taco Bob" option instead

I can also just close the poll (results would still remain visible however)
