    2b's Ace

    Looks great, you will love the extra torque. How did you go about ordering direct from Skyteam? In the past I have tried to do this without luck as it is the obvious choice to cut out the middle man. Was it cheaper than 00 racing? If you could let us know how we to could order directly from...

    Ok great, now I now what to look for. Do you need a special tool to compress the valve spring to get to the seal?

    Lifan 150cc big-bore kit: Installation

    I understand that a small amount of ticking is correct, but it was when changing from the 125 to 150 that the ticking increased to more than just a little bit and after warming up is quite loud. After checking the valve clearances many times I had given up until now

    The SkyTeam 'Ace' Resource

    Summer's here! The 'Ace' gets a bit hot when ridden for extended periods at full throttle (is there any other way?), so this will help… Is fitting one of these advisable for SE QLD weather? Has there been a problem with overheating in your area? Or is it just being proactive??

    rear sprocket play

    A question about replacement of the cush drive rubbers. Should any grease or lubricant be applied during replacement, or do you firmly drift them into the hubs dry? Any advice is greatly appreciated? Cheers Cameron

    I have found the increase in performance to be just as crazy states, around the same percentage as the capacity increase. It makes a real difference in mid range torque where it was definately required. Top end gains where not as great in my experience, but my exhaust has the cat removed and a...

    Tyre Talk

    Good point, I did notice that there isn't much space around that front fender. I gave it all a bit of a flex outward to get a bit more clearance for the tyre Cheers

    Tyre Talk

    Hi, I Have a question for everyone running Michelin M45's. I Just bought some and noticed that they have arrows that point towards each other on the tyre for front and rear. Does this mean the front has the pattern with rounded arrow pointing towards the ground as we look at it from above and...

    This is getting way past my level of knowledge. Should have stopped at jets and rear sprocket!!! I may have to take it to someone who knows what the they are doing for the rest of the job. Thanks so much for trying to help though...Even after reading through an old CG125 manual I just dont...

    Lifan 150cc big-bore kit: Installation

    Removed motor yesterday and all bolts around the centre of the crankcase, but when trying to seperate the two halves I could easily get around a 3-4mm gap but that is about it without forcing anything. (Also removed the clutch side cover and inspected for any of the broken washer, but nothing...

    Lifan 150cc big-bore kit: Installation

    Update..... this afternoon I removed the head and cylinder to rectify the incorrectly placed thrust washer. When I turned the cylinder over to drift the locating pin out I couldn't see the washer. All sorts of thoughts ran through my mind like did it fall out of my hands when i was putting it...

    Great news that the fault is mine and not the bike!!! Thanks for the photo, it was just what I was thinking about. Pretty dumb mistake on my part.....I will let you know how I go when I do it tomorrow. Might have to make a new gasket for the bottom of the cylinder or is it safe to do it the...

    Lifan 150cc big-bore kit: Installation

    Hi again. I have been re reading through your guide to the install of the kit, and I think I may have picked up a problem when I put it back together that is causing my louder than usual valve gear noise. When I looked at your photos of removing cam followers and being carefull not to loose...
