researched
Once it's done I can rush a lot if I want, the old motor made only 5.3 HP and this 5 port reed valved 150cc LML is supposed to make 8, but now has a genuine Sito plus upgrade muffler!
So, probably 3 or 4 more at least?
so that's a no then?

first ride
With no lites, switch(including kill switch), horn, speedo, cowls, front brakes(eek!) or even much gas and wires hanging out the headlite hole . Oh and no helmet, oops! Good tires, though. But just up the hill to get the mail in zero traffic and YOLO. A break in the weather earlier but not when wifey got home and we could have got a nice rolling shot. Cold drizzle, no thanks.

Sorry.

But it ran OK, pulled well and all, but I did not wanna break the crank immediately, so took it easy not winding it out yet. Also front brakes would be nice and will need my full face helmet when I do take that first speed trial run w/ GPS and gloves on. No suave camel hair coat until Spring debut, coz too DAMN cold here!
BBrrrrr <--now blue
