    Chikuni throttle cable mod

    Test and tune time. I rode a bit last week and think it may be lean at the top so I wanted to try a bigger jet setting. Unfortumately, the jets that were included with the carb do not fit (!). I left some feedback for the seller on Amazon and asked them to send me the right jets. Meanwhile...

    Chikuni throttle cable mod

    Hi @Bansil , Sorry I dropped out for a while to ride. It was a bit lean in the midrange, so I raised the needle as much as I could and the cold start and off idle was great. It was lean on the top end and would only go about 3800 RPM before studdering... so I rather than re-jet, I rode it a...

    New GoPro? Oh goody, where's my credit card.............

    I borrowed a friend's GoPro to try on my kart and the mount has slipped both times so the video was short. Thanks for the info on the $54 one... when I buy that will be a big upgrade from the $7 clearance dashcam that I've been using

    Upgraded turn #4 on my yard track. Thanks to my good neighbor Zach with the 4wd JD with the loader bucket.

    Slingshot

    This should be a blast ! I like the low slung look and low center of gravity. That should help keep both the front wheels on the ground, or make it less likely to tip as you rip. Are you planning to triangulate the dash somehow to the frame ? Looks like all the front suspension forces are...

    Ride Videos: GEGcorp2012 Trike

    Here is it... I edited last night and just pushed it to YT. Keep in mind the video is more about the ride than making a a great video. I will try a GoPro next week and see how much better that works.

    Ride Videos: GEGcorp2012 Trike

    I took the Dirt Bobber out for a spin today. Need some advice on how to make a vibration proof camera mount. I tried a piece of conduit pipe with flanges that bolt to my sissy bar, and it worked <kinda>, but it was too rough to get a good video in the yard. So I set up the dash cam on the...

    Chikuni throttle cable mod

    Ended up ordering a clearance item from Amazon. Cost 8 bucks with one day sipping ! It was an 83" cable with the big pieces of lead on each end. One end had the 1/4 turn metal tube on it, so I think it may be a minibike part. I took half of the bend away, then wrapped the cable end around...

    Chikuni throttle cable mod

    I am installing a Mikuni clone (a Chikuni) on my Predator 212 and am about to hack my throttle cable. What's the best way to keep from cutting my existing cable (that I paid $ for) so short ? Is there a way to use a short piece of cable inside the carb and put some kind of adjuster block or...

    Rat Rod compressor

    Hey @52Ford , Are you recommending a tensioner bolt ?(#45 in the picture) https://www.rolair.com/sites/default/files/products/documents/4090-6590-20%20Schematic%2011-18.pdf I like that idea better than trying to add a tension roller. @Budget GoKart I saw YT suggest a few...

    Lengths of gokarts/minibikes drag strips???

    Short tracks can present a greater %error on GPS for time to short distances but should be ok for speed. I tried a few track logging apps to chart my ride and one of the best ones I tried was Track Addict. It uses an aerial view with your runs shown on top and shows times like a 50 foot time...

    2021 Build Off - Cannibal Kart

    Hi @TheDADgineer , Did you get your angles sorted out ? For a full circle (even a triangular D shaped one) the angles will add up to 360 degrees. You are showing two 90's and a 92... (ignore the 100 degree one that is over-ruled by the 90).... so that's 272 degrees. 360-272=88 degrees left...
