    Oh jeez, I have a 212cc 4-stroke. This is all of the sudden getting very close to "next project" status... bad influences..

    Also, great job on the bike so far. Love the sanded fins and I think the exploded carb picture is worth framing!

    @Rhy650 thuuuu, think twice before installing a 200 cc !!!

    With a 75, it drifts instantly, so increasing the power will increase your speed in straight line but you won't have more grip in curves... And you will add weight & inertia... Maybe i'm a sissy but I wouldn't go faster than mine...

    In any case, choose a wider front wheel than mine, either a fatbike wheel or a pocket bike but mine is too "twerking" in high speed curve.

    If you go further, give me a call, i'll give you my good and bad choices...

    Thanks! Once I finish my XS1B I very well may take you up on this.

    Just for fun, I briefly pondered a 650 engine on one (it is an XS forum...), but obviously that is insane. Luckily, I can live vicariously through these fools:

    When those guies, who seem way further in term of madness, are concluding "I don't want to drive that thing anymore...", that shod be seen as a red light on the control panel of the builders we are !
