X1 Transmission help

Bought this thing a while ago with plans to fix it up. Quite a few parts broken/missing. Replaced everything but one of the things missing was the trans. Didnt really think about it and I ordered a regular little trans thinking it would work. It does, But it runs the bike in reverse. Not a huge loss, only $30 and may be useful later down the line in other projects so not all is lost.

Any body have an idea what trans I actually need or if any are even available anymore? Maybe somebody could sell me one? Would hate for the little thing to go to waste because I cant find a trans it needs. Ive tried to read up and I see theres different ones, CVT and regular but I hear the CVT is a pain to install. Really not interested in the CVT if its avoidable. Thoughts?

Welcome to the site...It appears you have bought the Pocketquad/X7/Pocket dirtbike transmission...

The X1 transmission reverses so when mounted makes the bike run forwards....



It may be your lucky day though as it appears you have an X2 and could use a much better CVT transmission ……



I know the plastics say X1 but that engine is mounted all the way forwards and it has a TF-8mm chain...….X1's come with a bicycle type chain.

Does the exhaust pipe have an expansion chamber?

You can get one from ebay...https://www.ebay.com/itm/49cc-X1-X2-...QAAOxy79JRgxkA

Re: X1 Transmission help

Thanks for the reply. Any chance you could link me to one? Im not having any luck finding any, unless im searching wrong. Only ones i find are CVT ones for over $1,000. Lol.


Edit: Yeah i couldnt figure out why it said X1 but didnt seem to be an X1. Still the same problem as above. Guess I'll have to message the seller for a reasonable price.

And no, no expansion chamber. Just a pipe from the engine to the muffler. Really, really loud though for some reason. Makes you a little deaf when youre near it. No clue why, muffler inards must be rotted or something.

Its really loud due to the straightpipe design...If you removed the packing from the stinger it would get even louder......

They sell pipes for them like the fatty pipe......

Yeah pm the seller...Im pretty sure theyre like $80 bux....

The best part of a CVT is it goes from 7:1 ratio to 5:1 ratio when it variates and is very easy to modify....

I run my CVT's without the cover as with the cover on it tends to run very hot...…

Re: X1 Transmission help

Thats a sick pipe! I sent the seller on ebay a message, hopefully they'll respond with a price and not that they are out of stock or something. I see a lot of sellers put an insane price on things when theyre out of stock to hold the listing up for some reason.

Heres the deal...the US govt is squeezing out chinese made pocketbikes,,,euro made ones too...Most of the sellers on ebay use the higher price technique to throw off the fact they sell china pocketbike parts but it literally goes to bite them in the tookus when they get charged a percentage of the huge pricetag...LOL

In the feedback area you will see what others paid...

Theres also another place called racemotorparts.com....try them out....

2 stroke 49cc pocket bike X2 and X8 CVT Gearbox, racemotorparts.com

Thanks about the pipe....Its called a fatty pipe...it looks a lot better than it performs but after its modified to work right it works excellently...…… 2 stroke 49cc pocket bike X1 , X2 Fat Pipe, racemotorparts.com

Re: X1 Transmission help

I remember reading about that somewhere. No more 2 strokes due to al gore or something lol. All I'm able to find/buy is 4 strokes now. Why they thought it was a good idea to ban 2 stroke mini bikes is beyond me. Most garden tools are 2 stroke and half of them use close to the same, if not the exact same motor these do. People put chainsaw motors on these bikes does the re-purposing of the engine make it illegal??? Seems like a direct attack on the bikes only.

Its mainly AlGores agenda....Its like Apple....They start a chatroom then the hackers gloat about finding security vulnerabilities and the Apple techs who monitor the site get right on working on an update patch fix on the quickness..

These engines were never designed for vehicles with wheels...They were originally tool based engines.....An engine under load consumes alot more fuel.The heavier the load the more fuel it consumes.......…

So in answer to your question it technically does make it illegal to install a tool based engine on a two wheeled vehicle as the tool will see lesser useage and also in an unmodified state burns alot lesser fuel than one on two wheels modified to go as fast as possible loaded with a human instead of being carried by a human doing useful things....

Its a known fact that motorbikes n motorcycles are the bigger air polluters over cars..Its also a known fact we burned way more coal and forest wood 200-300 years ago...they built log cabins everywhere too...LOL...…we had such huge industries that burned so much AlGore would've killed himself witnessing it....LOL….LOL

Little does AlGore realize once you pass the tipping point by reducing carbon too much its harder to right thw wrongs created,,,,I guess he likes all the floods n such that's happened lately a lot better..LOL


When there were more 2 stroke boat engines on the water algae blooms were very very very rare.....Now they happen more often and have gotten a lot larger...

Re: X1 Transmission help

you talking about the Nuts on eBay, for $999.99, their Crazy. I email them a month ago about why they were selling $80 transmission for $1,000, never heard from them, wow, I wonder why, lol. I just sold a new CVT trans for $80 that's what they cost. Hard to find one now. I would search, pocket bike parts direct from China, on the .com banggood and aliexpress and see if you can find one there. I would contact there sellers that have transmission for for sale, and ask if the can find you an X1, a CVT trans for an X2, which ever you need.

FYI Racemotorparts.com lists a bunch of stuff but doesn't have much and they are out of Thier mind on shipping. Check out the shipping charges on the site, (and they are out of Oakland,CA). I have emailed them on about 10 different parts and the reply is always the same
.. "sorry we don't have that item any longer"

Yeah, I've searched the internet for hours. Nobody seems to have them. Checked every single pocket bike website, even the scammy ones. Tried banggood and ali, nothing. I even went back to the guy I bought it from and he said he doesnt have the parts. I messaged 3 sellers on ebay, 1 got back saying theyre out of stock and they put an insane price on it to keep the listing up like I said they do higher up the thread. They said they'll be in stock in a few weeks and lower the price, but I doubt it. The last time that seller sold one was in April 2016. And if that seller can get them, whos making them and selling them to this single ebay seller and nobody else on the planet??? Seems fake.

Think I'm totally out of options. If anyone has one I'm more than willing to work out a deal for it.

I cant figure out why a seller would waste money on a listing but I giess they have their reasons....

Have you tried ali-baba?


Like I said the gov't is cracking down....Most of the sellers pulled the CVT transmissions apart and made more $$$ selling the guts also to mention the motorized bicycle guys are buying them up like hotcakes......

The other day we lost another supplier which was Fancy Scooters..Its now labeled as "Permanently Closed"...If anyone was gonna have one or be able to get one it would be them..


I have another option too but i'd have to PM them to see if theyre able to still help as they were at one time a huge supplier of pb parts.

Soon we will all be forced to go back to oldschool minibikes......LOL

You can buy a scooter transmission and add a jackshaft....

Your other choice in all of this is to flip the engine and rear tire 180* and use what you have..

Good Luck
