Tank is almost done. It's getting slightly nicer out. Must get some ride time in before tearing it down completely and paint it all..

Alright. Got my foot position all set, made up some brackets for some dirtbike foot pegs, used the old pedal arms for the main part, 3/4" steel rod through the sub frame, and 3/8" braces tied to the motor mount bolts.

It's solid as hell even for being rigged together for now,

Don't mind the mill table studs.. just temporary. Haha

That's kinda funny.. that picture of the sky was an accident.. its nice out but not that nice yet!!

Took it out for a rip, the bushing in the tjt walked out.. go figure. So some red loctite was in store and did the trick. Thing hauls ass, takes off good then BOOM! all powerband/variation.. n o idea on speed but im guessing around 50 or so so far. Its pretty rich on the main jet as it has the power jet is hitting at wide open.. fine tuning now!

Re: Hobbit.... and we're off!

When I get a hobbit someday it’s gonna be 40% your fault. Jerk. But does it wheelie?!

Re: Hobbit.... and we're off!

Are you using the stock bushing? Don’t do that plz. They walk out because they seize to the boss. Get rid of it soon

Yeah its the stock bushing.. so your sayin, get that upgrade one treats sells??

Re: Hobbit.... and we're off!

Well you basically can run any other bushing.

Check that stock bushing it’s magnetic and sucks shit.

It’s a fucking travesty they put that garbage bushing in there. Fuck them.

You could get a new style perforated Dx bushing or the Teflon one from treats

Yeah for real.. finally got time to really dial it in.. and then it walked on me.. go figure. Red loctite is working for now.. ill check that one from eBay, looks promising, I don't like that it's a split bushing tho.. have you messed with one?

Re: Hobbit.... and we're off!

All of them are split these days

Not the DX style but er3 uses DX style.

The perfs are so cool cus you can stash oil up in there

Thanks for the link dude!

Hello!

So... i was showing my buddy the hobbit the other day. When we realized that if I load the drive train under power, the belt is sinking a little in the rear pulley making the front slip a little.. I know I'm losing like 20% of my low gear this way.

So. Better belt? Stronger spring/more weight up front?

Now, my belt is kind of loose, about an inch of movement total. Should I just snug the belt back up or what the fuck.

Other than that, on normal ripping conditions, the variation is right where it should be, Its fully variated around full throttle and the motor has a little more to go. I like where it is definitely. IT HAULS SERIOUS ASS. lol better than my last puch with gila/all the goodies/tomar clutch. And that one did 60 no problem. Haha fuck puchs.

Re: Hobbit.... and we're off!

You want that belt tight.

Zero flap.

So much power is lost in ripper builds due to slippage. Been on the loose side in my tuning for years but recently took the plunge into tight butthole belt and it’s been awesome.

Loose belt allows way too much takeoff clutch slip

Totally.. it was tight, but its new belt so I'm sure it's breaking in some.. ill tighten it up and give it a rip.. other than that it's super solid.. lovin it so far!

Well.. been a while.. i have real brakes! Damn it feels good!!

I have something sweet in store for the rear brake.. it will use the same hydraulic master as the front so the bars match..

Those spoked disk rims that treatland sells are actually legit quality.. if you are even thinking about it.. just get it. You won't be sad.
