    Fwiw, re:chinese knockoff motors: I have an 80cc chongking-dinking motor running my moped, Im giving that thing a hard, hard life of cold starts, mechanical overrevving, not changing the oil enoughetc, and so far its been dauntless.
    Ya - that was my thought - unfortunately the Lifan requires a slight frame modification (it's a coppy of the 67 and up ohv engine and the 64 has the older pushrod engine). Nothing really substantial, but enough to bother me a bit as it is such a survivor.

    I think if it was just bolt on I would order it today - they have come a long way and there are many, many ct's, cubs, dreams etc running on them - It's a bullet proof design.

    (the guy who gave me this also gave me a 1978 imperial moped with a sachs 505 in a box - haven't even looked at it yet - but what engine did you put in yours?)

    At least they used the hi temp gasket maker.

    Too bad you're the lawyer of the group. Perfect spot for our dentists to bring out their dental picks.

    New (to me) bike day. Had a 2010 Versys previously, and loved it. Always regretted having to sell it so Im happy to have one back in the garage! This one is a 2014 w/ ABS.

    I wanted to reach out to the group. Got lucky cartridges installed and suspension serviced by MX Tech in Illinois. (dual spring conversion)

    These guys were awesome, responsive, and really wanted to know the type of riding i did out here.

    Havent gotten them back to try out and dial in, but I havent dealt with a company in awhile that was so interested in their craft and how it relates to the end user.

    New forks, shock service, and parts out the door for less than $2k.

    Bluespark, ready to ride the colorado high country? We should be out there with shovels this weekend trying to gain access to the Taylor Park side of things.

    Glad you're stoked, but that is absolutely normal data they need to do the setup on the suspension.
    Rider weight, age, riding level, terrain, oversize tank y/n, are the minimum data points they need to select spring rate and first pass at valving.

    If a suspension shop doesn't ask that, run away.

    Nice one, Supermoon!!

    Asspen, yeah, bought a yz fork that'd been redone. Gotta contact racetech to see if I can see the specs. Good onya for the rebuild. What did they do, and for what specs?

    Have a KTM 2 stroke with the AER 48 fork that been roundly panned by all offroad riders. Only the Pro MX testers seem to like the AER.

    Went with MX tech's proprietary dual spring conversion which drops into my current tubes (Lucky Cartridge kit). They make the lucky kit for all the popular forks.


    Small chop compliance has much improved, and is worth the investment thus far.
