    Anybody ever put limiter in CVT driven?

    I would rather see the spacer in the drive pulley. Less stress on the belt.

    TIP: Saving old brass carburetor inlet valves

    Just a tip for folks, i came up with this idea last year after discovering pattern failure with walbro LMT carburetors. What happens is the pressed in brass inlet valve seat corrodes, and even with a new needle will not seal. Some of these seats are replaceable, some are not. But this trick...

    Mini Baja buggy snowmobile engine swap!

    I just picked this diamond in the rough up for almost nothing ($250!). It was built by college kids, back in 2002 for the mini Baja SAE challenge. They were sponsored by polaris, and used many components from polaris ATVS. It was originally powered by a 10hp briggs, per SAE rules. But it has...

    Helix 150 engine swap, single seat conversion

    Hey folks, Been out of the Go cart game for a while. Life, business, and house projects have taken over. last summer i impulsively picked up a Chinese gy6 go cart/buggy with a blown engine for $100, with absolutely no plan for it. I'm finally digging in, and i believe i have a rough idea of...

    Supra turbo project

    Just picked up this diamond in the rough. Its got the 3.0 straight six, 24v DOHC. Its a factory intercooled turbo, and a 5 speed. So basically my dream car. It needs a head gasket which was a pretty common problem for these things, and a tiny bit of body work but overall its in pretty good...

    Project Subie Doo

    So, last night my friend rolled his car, it was a 1996 subaru legacy awd. somehow he is perfectly fine, he is one lucky guy... He only had liability on it so he said i could just have it. It rolled twice, and then hit a tree, so the roof is smooshed in but it runs good, and nothing major besides...

    New to me, 1985 rm250

    Just picked up an 85 RM250, for $115. Shes been sitting a while, and has no spark. but cylinder looks mint and shes got decent compression, shifts through all gears, has good tires, and overall looks like a decent bike. Pretty much stole her at $115. So far i cleaned the carb and airfilter...

    Off-road mower, update

    So i have a major problem with starting things and not finishing them due to money, or other dumb reasons. Anyways, i started this mower over a year ago, planning on doing a pulley swap, lowering it, and making it kickass. Got about 50% done and switched to building the shifter kart, because i...

    Another project, beater bike DS80

    Just picked up this DS80 for $20, it was sitting for 20 years, was seized, someone put black paint (i think) in the gas tank, some wires were cut, engine was seized. I took it apart, un-seized it, and it looks like its got some potential as a beater. The cylinder is fine, piston skirt has a...

    Velocity Stacks

    Anyone ever made one? I'm looking to make one for my shifter, but i have no idea how to calculator the taper, length, dia, etc. I did a little searching on google and found NOTHING. I have access to a lathe and all, so i'd like to do it fairly accurately, and tune it for lower rpm.
