Default Much fun and onother money pit

Well, I just got a minimoto off KKM today (Thanks KKM, good deal and it was nice to meet you in the flesh)

Got home and did some research, its actually a midimoto, but its all the same to me.

Anyway its bloody good fun but a bit scary going downhill. Doesnt like me on it going uphill. 13 and a half stone plus a set of race leathers and the poor centrifugal clutch wasnt happy!

So a new clutch might be needed and then, once I start tinkering, you just know the parts catalogue will come out, performance this and high power that! Even found a special minimoto nitrox kit listed!

So far all Ive had is an indicated 17 mph but that was more than enough!

Ideal for teaching the boy on though!!!!!!!!!!!!!
