You should add a clutch, gas and clutch pedal and paddle shifting. Gas and brake on the right, clutch on the left. Or do a shifter next to it. Or do a clutch pull and shift with each paddle which would be mindblowing dope.

Have you guys ever thought about using the mechanism from the front brake on a bmx for the clutch? The ones that allow the handle bars to spin indefinitely? I think that would be a good work around to keep the clutch pull consistent when turning the steering wheel

You should try make an offset sprocket centre that can rotate and lock so that you don't need tensioners. Some single speed mountain bikes have this design

oh wow, i thought it would just be mountain bike disc brakes at the back, you guys went hydraulic, nice. that will lock up real good, for some sweet drift initiations, haha. not that it wouldnt lock up pretty good with standard mtb brakes either

Socks VR - 20 dager siden
for some of that cabling you could probably just use a gyro off any old bmx bike, so its on bearings and you dont need to worry about cables kinking.
also, for the deleted files, as long as they have not been overwritten (you realise you deleted it pretty quickly). all that happens is its renamed to blank space as far as the system knows. buy it is still there, you just need software such as 'recuva' to find it and restore it. so thats just an fyi.. although it doesnt always work well.

As much as I'd like to do it, many of us would pay for a diy kit ( frame, suspension, steering, brakes, clutch or torque converter, sprockets ) more or less assembled that way we just strap in a predator 212 and tune her up for a good rip!

Could you adapt a detangler headset and brake system from the front brake on a Freestyle BMX bike for the clutch? It wouldn't matter how far the steering wheel is turned, you'd still have smooth clutch pull

It's probably better not to put the battery next to the fuel tank, even if it's the good one
iamandreja - 21 dag siden
Maybe it would be better if you mounted the clutch pedal on the steering "column" and not on the steering wheel itself? In that case you shouldn't worry about how it would work if you are at full steering lock.

you should change the clutch lever to a sleek position off the steering post if there's clearance under the body where its stationary and less chance of it binding up and damaging over time if your thrashing the steering often other than that i love it and totally want to build myself one here in New Zealand :D

Socks VR - 20 dager siden
im also in new zealand, and i also want to build one, lol. i live in auckland though and cant think of anywhere you could use it legally. cops are such a pain in the ass. i have a dirt bike too, i miss the times you could just ride it in your nearby forest, or on the grass along the side of a country road. such a pain to sort everything out and drive all the way out to a bike park like the sandpit, and then pay for entry. still totally worth it though. so much fun.

Why did the brake pedal go on the right side? That seems counter intuitive...
Steffen Tysnes
Steffen Tysnes - 19 dager siden
They're probably making it the same way as a quad or motorcycle with clutch and (optional) front brake on hands, and rear brake right foot and shifting left foot.

A series 50 and the 530 bike chain is a perfect fit...I up graded my 520 chain and glad I did
Rosko311 - 21 dag siden
Wow, if that chain comes off at speed it could delete a pork pistol. Also, if you want to put the break pedal on the left you could attach a short cable going from the pedal to a 2nd smaller jack shaft to get around the motor. And you could even put a small lockable handle off the break jack shaft & have an E Break.

over all great build and tutorial as well, my only concern is that you guys can fabricate why we cant see a left foot clutch mechanism on that thing? why because of space issue? or really is left foot pedal is for breaking? i think for sure there is enough space for foot pedals to put in that thing to work. congratulations for 1m subs in advance you guys deserves more subscribers

I don't think the brake on the right is a good idea. Because with the go-kart the accelerator pedal is on the right side and the brake on the left side
