So I've made my mind up.

I'm going to purchase this.

I would rather the blue Yamaha M1 version of this bike but no one seems to have it.

Where do people buy replacement pistons and tires for these things?

Any advice as to what mods I should do it it first to help speed and reliability would be greatly appreciated!

first i would go on davesmotors.com and go under pocket bikes and get a race pipe and third support also others things on there that are very helpful

Heres a NZ web site for parts I use this guy all the time and he races himself so knows what he's talking bout..http://www.xminimoto.co.nz/main.htm
I'd get used to the bike before wacking race pipes on... the B1 rep has a fair bit more poke then a daytona so will take a little bit to get used to (they will wheel stand without to much effot)

Honda's are gay:whistle:

I'll eventually paint it blue or white lol

I'll whip him a email now so I have the bearing when the bike arrives.



Thanks for your help!

Man, I hate buying things off TM and waiting for them to arrive! It always seems to take forever!

So my B1 rep arrived yesterday. I got to work stripping it apart straight away. The whole bike is currently spread about in my room. I'm waiting on a replacement small end bearing to arrive 2morro. While the bikes been in bits I've painted the frame and done some other small mods. Has anyone packed the "exhaust" on these bikes? does it make much difference? Can't wait to have it going 2morro.:rockon:
