Re: 80cc Shifter Questions

The engines are bike engine. We remove the kick starter and mechanism. We also tap the jug for a pulse line to run our vacuum fuel pumps, as there is no longer a gravity fed fuel tank.

Re: Brake Bleeding Suggestions?

I have seen bleeder made out of plastic 16 oz water bottles with a air nozzle on the cap used to force brake fluid through the system that works pretty good and its cheap. see me at the track and I'll show you, or see Jim Loomis who taught me.

Re: Seat Adjustment

Dianna, Sounds like it will work. Since these seat bolts are now holding weights on, you will need to make sure that they are drilled on the end and have a clip or safety wire in them just as a normal weight bolt would have. Also the weights have to be painted white in color, bob

Re: What tires can I run?

Matt, that is correct if you want to get credit for both the Rotax Challenge (get a punch) and Club points for the club Rotax. If you leave the Mojo's on for the club race you won't get credit. bob
