Im comfortable on the Blata. Maybe too comfortable. Diving deep seems to be getting better, but I get head shake that bugs me.

So, what's a good steering stabilizer? One that's track level in quality with the ability to dial the rate.

Try loosening the fork clamps and tightening the center bolt then tightening the fork clamps back up..Try changing the neck and wheel bearings too...............Put the thickest grease in the new neck bearings and youll notice a good improvement............

I had some problems with my elite and headshake aswell... I went to tsun and got an adjustable steering damper, gives you stability when you toe out of a turn and floor it. requires a little bit extra work to turn the handle bars but a bigger guy wont have any problems handling it.

These big blue ones work real good, there are more expensive adj ones.
Hey EPR, Does that stableizer come with all that hardware to hook it to the frame and handle bar? Who makes that one and do you remeber where you got it??

Thanks,

Jon

They all come with hardware, but the blue one I got a Dave's for $14 when they sold out off PB stuff. I had to drill a hole in the frame to mount the rear holder and drill thru the bottom triple clamp for the front. I see them for 30 to $35 dollars now. hkmotos has the blue ones like that for $20 or so I think. I had to put 2 of the cheap small alum colored ones on my A2 and it's still not as good as the blue one. You might consider an adjustable one for $50+. I ordered my C1 SS pipe Sept. 22, still not here yet. It was shipped on the 24th, I think Customs has it and they think its a Water Pipe for smoking Pot,lol,lol.

My son has been riding the snot out of the Blata lately which resulted in a nail in the back tire.

Switching from a 90 tire to a 110 solved the HS problem for the most part. Still going to put a stab- on it as time allows.

The rubber is pretty soft on these slicks. I just put the ultra soft slick on the rear rim of my C1, going to put the new exhaust and the rear wheel on in the next few days. Then have to do the front one.
If it is tubless you can put a patch on the inside.

I ran over a survey spike that the surveyors broke the head off of and punctured both of the tires on my Evil Wasp cag...I patched both but they leaked air still because the inside rubber is so slick it dont grab the patch too well...I even hit the inside with a 80 grit cookie wheel to roughen up the rubber and cleaned it with Acetone then lacquer thinner but the patch kept lifting when I rode it...I ended up having to use a large patch and put a tube in the tires..Ever since Ive had no leaks

I think there are red ones and a few other colors but there hard to find hk don't have them anymore, not sure about SP4L. Have not seen any $60 or $100 ones lately. Think this pocket bike thing is winding down, the new bikes are 33cc piston port engines, at least that's what the telling customs,lol. Do they make hot patches anymore??
