Great thread, thanks for posting.

Re: QCB Yamaha Sting Build Off: Gator vs. Potato

I needed a mount for the exhaust so I busted out the threaded rivet tool I got recently.

Re: QCB Yamaha Sting Build Off: Gator vs. Potato

Damn I didn't know I needed a threaded rivet tool...

Re: QCB Yamaha Sting Build Off: Gator vs. Potato

I got one about 6 months ago, I rivnut anything and everything now.

Re: QCB Yamaha Sting Build Off: Gator vs. Potato

Re: QCB Yamaha Sting Build Off: Gator vs. Potato

Is that a pw magneto cover? I didn’t know they made the boysen factory cover for it, that’s rad.

Re: QCB Yamaha Sting Build Off: Gator vs. Potato

Yeah it is! I was surprised that it covers the HPI. I can't wait for the HPI to overheat and I will have a cool cover to keep others from seeing that happen.

Re: QCB Yamaha Sting Build Off: Gator vs. Potato

🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣. Man Matt just make some air holes in the case and let it breathe!

Re: QCB Yamaha Sting Build Off: Gator vs. Potato

love this thread and you dudes. Can't wait to rip both of them to the titty bar

Re: QCB Yamaha Sting Build Off: Gator vs. Potato

Hpi only overhear because they short out to the cases and each other where they’re potted behind the coils. Idk what kind of epoxy they use, seems like every time it’s a little different color, but it can get very brittle and crack which kills it instantly.

Daniel did you post a pic somewhere of adding epoxy? Maybe I made that up last night 🤷🏼‍♂️

Re: QCB Yamaha Sting Build Off: Gator vs. Potato

this is a good load of fucked up in there

Re: QCB Yamaha Sting Build Off: Gator vs. Potato

Gator on the number plate!

Re: QCB Yamaha Sting Build Off: Gator vs. Potato

Loving this! Both are turning out primo! ....actually this just ticked my brain. if you message me both of your Addresses, I will add to the contest in a small way. I have these vintage skate stickers from the 80s, one says “Premo” one says ‘Bogus” I’ll mail the winner Premo and the looser Bogus lol.

Re: QCB Yamaha Sting Build Off: Gator vs. Potato

Just waiting on the seat to be delivered!

Re: QCB Yamaha Sting Build Off: Gator vs. Potato

I just saw this bike in person. It's way cleaner than it looks in photos. And it looks pretty clean in photos.

Re: QCB Yamaha Sting Build Off: Gator vs. Potato

Spoiler alert, I've seen the seat and is fuckin buttery goodness, can't wait to see them together.

Re: QCB Yamaha Sting Build Off: Gator vs. Potato

Oh man - I saw the pics from Maize and it should be here tomorrow. :-)

Re: QCB Yamaha Sting Build Off: Gator vs. Potato

wow, looking good so far!

id love to see what kinda performance you guys get compared to my QT50 build, as I'm leaning towards low-budget bolt-on stuff. (edited)

Re: QCB Yamaha Sting Build Off: Gator vs. Potato

Hit 48 mph with my 245 pound self. I suspect it's 50mph without knobbies and such a big dude. The torque is amazing everywhere in the throttle. Debating if I leave it here (to actually serve as dirtped) or go pw50 gears.
