Really o.O

Well, I removed the weedeater engine. The whole frame slowly bent while it was sitting (...), so when I started it, the chain slipped and jammed a couple of things. Didn't break anything though.

Soo... I've decided to buy those 49cc "Clones" on eBay. Problem is, is the sprocket teeth the right pitch? Was wondering if anyone could tell me? Doesn't look like that tiny sprocket on the minibike...

I would assume its 8mm on the 49cc engines. #25 is smaller 1/4" pitch.

Default the pipe

On the exhaust pipe we didnt make from scratch - we added the blue section (making it longer than the stock pipe) moved the front cone forward and rewelded everything. Supposed to add more mid range power.

That pocket bike is always shaking itself apart - its a battle to keep all the hardware tight even with Loctite

Default loctite

The cylinder bolts stripped out from the vibes even with loctite - you have to always be checking the bolts for tightness.

try some green loctite, never come apart again, even if you want it too.

Default the green

I have the Green - its glue - it works great as long as you dont plan on removing anything ever.

Update if ne' one cares, Briggs 3HP carburetor. Cleaned it out with acetone, heat gunned it, cleaned out every lil' hole, cleaned out tank, also heated till dry, put gas in, choked, 3 pulls, started. Died. Unchoked, first pull.

Amazing. I never knew this carburetor could suck gas that fast!

EDIT - With this carburetor, it revs ALOT higher. And I don't have to fill the tank every run

Gained at LEAST 5-10MPH from this carburetor swap.

Oh wow, did you actually get a Briggs carburetor and count them all?

Thanks for the useful post Kenny!
