Hey Guys thought that I should do a review for my Pit Pro 140cc Bigfoot. Got the bike a few days ago and I must say I love it. It has great power in both the bottom and top end, and is really fun to ride. I am 6ft5 and around 80kgs, and it hauls me along just fine. Haven’t had the shock bottom out yet, although I haven’t really tried yet. Nothing has broken yet apart from a bolt I snapped as it was over tightened as I tried to remove it.

Build
Building it up was pretty easy, the only annoying thing was getting the rear brake lever on as well as the foot pegs, those springs are really annoying. Also loctited every bolt/nut/screw I could find. Took me 3 nights to do it as I still have to do school work. Only bad thing was that there were no real instructions, it was kind of look at pics on the net and see how things fit and in what order things go. Although it was pretty simple. I lubed everything up with some multipurpose lube and some chain oil on the chain.

Run In
Left in the lightweight shipping oil it came with and ran that with for the 1st tank. Drained that out after the 1st tank and put in some 20w50 non synthetic, as I couldn’t find non synthetic in 10w40. Ran it pretty easy with the shipping oil in, going through all the gears and using the gears to slow down the bike as well as the brake. After that I put in some 20w50 mineral oil from shell, and it runs like a dream.

Likes
Pretty much everything about the bike, really easy to ride and just a lot of fine. A bit easy for someone my height to ride compared to the conventional pit bike of 14” and 12” tyres. But that’s just me. Has a very nice sound, and certainly gets up and goes.

Dislikes

The lack if instructions, well there aren’t any, only things on how to maintain the bike etc. I had to look on the net for pics, but it was pretty simple. Also the front and rear brakes are a little weak. Also the chain is very noisy, this could be because of bad tightening or just a crap quality chain. Will defiantly be upgrading that later.

Conclusion
Great bike for someone who doesn’t want to spend a lot, someone who just wants to bash arround on a pit bike or someone who is a little tall like me bit still likes pit bikes. Future upgrades will be Pro Tapers, New Chain, Bleed the Brakes and Replace the oil in them, New Brake Pads as brakes are pretty soft, I may have just set them up wrong. Any questions you have about the bike or any feedback appreciated. I will update the info later on. Anyway here are some pics.

Cheers,
Alex

there a good bike for the money and they go hard, if ya want a bit more speed out of it change the front sprocket to a 16 or a 17, i've got a 16 on mine and it makes 1st gear more usable dont really notice any loss of bottom end power either, thinkin of changin the back to a 39 as well
