    If I was to make a slightly educated guess, as I wrote about the whole lineup being found on one certificate, the seemingly same engines are NOT the same engines, LOL. You wrote above your theory, so combine the two, and my guess is they are fudging the EPA!

    I just want to say that I appreciate all the years of information this thread has given me. Whether it be deemed by some as incorrect or perhaps even the backyard mechanic way it has helped in one form or another. For the record as well. I have a friend who goes to the salt flats with a buddy of his who runs his suzuki there. He checks his spokes every run... by tapping them with a wrench to hear the right pitch.

    Anyway. The information always finds a way to help out. Making it easier for me to actual search out what I need. So all information is always taken with a grain of salt. For the simple reason ,from my view, I am the one doing the work. If I feel it to be a bit iffy, then I double and triple check. When it feels right, I do it.


    Now onto other things. i still require the size of the front axle( bolt) would it be 12mm or 15mm? I am looking other speedo gears and they have different sizes. Thanks.

    bow,
    I went out and took the nut off the front axle and on the threads it measures a little bit less the 15mm so I would say it is a 15mm shaft. Definitely not a 12mm shaft.
    No guarantee!

    You the man Bar. Thanks. I was figuring it to be that, as most of the research I have done pegs the 12mm for scooters.

    Sold my DF today to a happy new owner in Naples Fl. He took it for a test ride and was satisfied with the bike.

    Wow--end of an era of sorts! You started this thread; this thread is the longest and most read thread here on mychinamoto!! Not that the thread will go away, but it will be different with you not being here, or at least having a bobber.

    I saw this bike on St. Louis Craigslist. Guy claims 450cc. Is that a "Frankenstein" Chinese engine? To me, the bottom end looks like a standard OHC Chinese 250. Any idea on the top end? 00n0n_2Kh4vUuAcbR_1200x900.jpg01212_byjyGTyDIRf_1200x900.jpg
