I found a FF Cag at the skatepark the other day missing it's rear wheel. So I brought it home for a winter project. Well This bike is pretty rough but over the winter I will bring it back to life and hopefully have it ready for riding season. On to the build.

The Tear Down

Full of spiders, earwigs and leaves. Yuk! So I took of all the fairings for a good cleaning.


Whoever owned this bike before was an idiot on had super long bolts for the exhaust and they were bottomed out in the threads and still to long by 1/2"


The bolts were missing to hold the air filter on so the previous owner used wired to hold ithe filter on lol.


Now it's stripped down to bare frame and is ready for me to wash it down and prep it for paint.



Parts list:
Back rim
Back tire
Axle
Sprocket (looking for good torque any opinions)
Build the motor (but that comes later)

Well I took a look at the motor, it turns over and has compression but bugs keep falling out of it lol. The clutch is toast and has a broken clutch pad. So I'm just going to tear it down and rebuild it with of the shelf performance parts.

I am in the process of tearing the 40mm(47cc) engine apart and so far I have the head, carburetor, flywheel and clutch off. There are 4 allen bolts that hold the crank case together I got 2 bolts out but the other 2 are stripped.

I am now debating on buying a race motor to just bolt in or if I should rebuild and modify this one.

One of these makes taking these small engines apart a breeze............A 40mm piston X 32mm bore is a 43cc engine......

Two screws and a lil heat from a plumbers torch will release it

And thanks for that link. That will probably be the engine of choice.
