where did ya buy the forks and clamps from? they should come with brakes..

and same goes for the wiring.. the engine should come with it all as the z155 runs a different cdi setup so maybe the only things you would need is coil and kill switch.

and those rims look like china products so they may or may not have hd spokes. (gamble)

what diameter rear disk are you running? pitster pro rear brakes or even the gpx should fit..

but yeah the build is gonna look sweet...

Hey Sean
Bought the forks from TDR china .... so I don't think they come with the brakes.
I bought the wheels from a dude in NSW got em cheap and I researched the rear tyre and its worth 98 bucks so I'm assuming if he went to that measure for a tyre and he said the spokes were hd. Also ive got all the elctrics coming with the engine including coil and killswitch..

Front disc is 190mm rear disc is 180mm. And the rear swinger also came with a bracket for the caliper. Might go the pister pro or gpx brakes then...

the hornets dont come with brakes from factory, just the tripple clamps and head stem bearings. the 155 engines dont come with the wiring loom either, just the cdi. good luck with the build. dont rush it and it will be an awsome bike.

Hey hman
the reason for the engine coming with all the elcectrics is because I bought it off a guy here on miniriders Sikko. and hes chucking in all the extras

the cdi plug is the loom, if anything you just need to add length to the coil wires..thought you'd know this stuff since you work at a minibike shop.



and well i guess the brake situation depends who you order from...

when we order the z engines they dont come with the wiring loom. i just double checked an un opened box to be sure. you can order them with the loom but the wires are too short so we source them elsewhere. i hope this clears it up for you.

so what do you plug the cdi into... the harness goes from the stator to the cdi...
