I put some of my ugly welds on display so people are aware of what they are getting.

Basically I am hoping to get enough out of this to get my Trailmaster MB200-2, so if Denny wants to trade straight up - I'm down. LOL

Sorry Bob. You mentioned she's gone. I got all melancholy and found this.

Left it long so I could add a third bearing on the driver side edge of the swing arm.

Sorry Bob but the Trailmaster I bought for the girls. You will not be disappointed if you buy one, BUT if you do before riding it replace the drive belt with a genuine Comet 203590a drive belt. Or you will be sorry! I blew out a disk in my neck at c5-c6 so right arm not working too well waiting to see if surgery is needed.

I've read that replacing the rear shocks with something better is a common upgrade for these bikes. I think they bottom out with a heavier rider. Something to keep in mind.

Nope, Rides like a Cadillac with my Fat Ask on there (been a few months since I rode it). Buy stock in blue Locktite. Cheep headlight fell apart. Glued it back together OK now. Just belt and headlight only 2 troubles with it.

I suspect the gear ratio on those is a belt eater. Is it a 10T on the JS? 6" Driven unit? or 7"?

If 6", then like 3.4 :1 in overdrive with 19" Tires and comparatively heavy bike.

How is the low end? I can't understand why this thing is geared to do 60mph at 3600 RPM?

Well since I still have the buggy and the 420cc engine....

This should get here today.
https://www.ebay.com/itm/32mm-Billet...72.m2749.l2648

I've had luck with these carbs showing up in a few weeks.
https://www.ebay.com/itm/32mm-PWK-Ca...72.m2749.l2649

IIRC, the 420cc engines have a 35mm intake valve.
So a 32mm carb should do nicely.

I think all I've done was governor removal, exhaust, head milling, valve job, head studs, maybe HD springs? maybe porting? I'll have to go back and check my thread.
