    Description says a 22mm, dunno... Considering one for my CT70H w/88cc Dr. ATV bore kit. Says the jets are replaceable but with what?

    CT70(88cc kit and cam)vs lifan 125cc

    The Lifan may outrun you but the Honda will be running long after the Lifan is dead and buried. Lifan motors are great runners but "disposable".

    Painting Cylinder?

    Whatever you use, I would go light with the paint. After all, the cylinder is designed to transfer heat.

    Exciting game, lots of turnovers. Texas has an outstanding team, outcome would have probably been much different if McCoy had not been sidelined.

    The first "yellow" he sent me was green (post #19, chain guard). I should have cut my losses then and went with HOK yellow.
