    Nah, didnt set the valve clearances on either motor. both motors will be run in, then the valve clearances done after the first ride. I'll post up the pre and post valve-check clearances for interests sake...
    nah, the engine comes with the "brushed-style" finish standard.
    lol yes mate, i'm dying to get this thing on the dirt asap as well... wednesday mate, wednesday... :)
    I chose to run the manifold without a plastic spacer, make the most of it's short nature, try and improve bottom end response... which seems to work, it's snappy as shi*... :D
    I dont have a timing light, so i cant really help with the ignition timing at idle...
    Yeah the little clicker on the right is the low-speed compression adjustment... the big one on the right is the hi-speed compression adjustment.... the rebound adjuster is on the bottom of the shock, like most bikes.. :)
    not sure about the blowing out part, will find out soon enough no doubt..
    Once i've ridden the thing, i'll put up a better review of how the suspension works etc, and any faults that come up from riding the bike...
    Yes mate, i'm taking the bike out on wednesday, and getting a heap of pics and vids of it in action... i'll be testing the 175 version, but also taking the 155/160HO motor as a back up...
    Keep an eye on the thread wednesday night...

    Problems, issues and solutions....

    Okay, i've had the bike for a couple of days now, and spoken to a few other owners, and have gone over the bike with a fine tooth comb to see any faults or issues... some have already been documented, others will come up over time.. so here is what i've found so far...

    Fuel cap: Seems poor machining and quality control is the problem, same as the Ciniworx bikes... the cap doesnt fit the thread properly, and wont screw all the way down.. i simply swapped mine for a better one...

    Fuel line: when assembling the bike, hook the fuel line up to the carby BEFORE you turn the fuel on... otherwise you end up with a shoe full of petrol like myself and hellrazor did.. ha ha ha!!!

    Air-screw: the air screw appears to be turned all the way in, as delivered. i turned mine out 2.5 turns, perfect. :)

    Rear Brake lever: mine was fouling a bolt head on the clutch cover, and was holding the back brake on... Simply bent the lever out a little, so that it clears the bolt when returning to normal position.

    Rear shock protection: Needs a shock cover. Will make one out of inner tube for now, until i can source a proper one, just to keep mud and crap out of the shock and seals...

    Jetting: so far, so good as delivered, with both the 155/160 and the 175 engines..

    Throttle housing: had an issue with mine sticking, but this only appeared after a little while... didnt happen striaght up out of the box. Where the throttle tube joins the throttle wheel, the tolerances arent perfect, and there is a slight lip, that grinds into the bars, and after a little while makes the throttle stick... i simply pulled mine apart, ground down the lip nice and level with a dremel, and reassembled. hey presto, dead smooth throttle action, no more sticky throttle.

    I'm riding the thing on wednesday on a variety of tracks, and will have pics and vids of the bike in action as soon as i can... plus the actual ride review.. hopefully that will answer a few more questions anyone has. :D

    the more time i spend going over this bike, the more impressed i am at the actual build quality, and the value for money. Truly epic. :D

    i had the same problem when i was running a lifan 150 as it had the same clutch cover all i did was grinded a little bit out of the brake pedal but i do belive the setup of the brake is failry different from others, i was talking to the guy from ming n 50s and he was saying that he had to change the brake pedal

    and thump could you do me a big favour and measure the wheel spacers and the width of the rear brake mout plate, could you also measure the front for me?

    Have you guys locktighted your nuts and bolts? I went over mine on Sunday and found 90% of them nice and tight! But took them apart anyways! The fuel line was of on mine to but saw it when I mounted a small fuel filter. My fuel cap is really crap to. Will have to get a new or since it's a general problem I would say RevMX should cover it as warranty!!! I've only risen mine 10m so don't know how everything goes yet. If I manage to get my motard wheels on for saturday it's going to get wacked. What oil are you guys using for run-in and for normal use?

    Nah Sean, the thread isnt loose, it's too tight... basically as coolee pointed out further up the thread, the threads in the cap werent cut deep enough, so when you try and tighten the cap up, it cross threads, doesnt seat on the seal, and fuel dribbles down the tank, making ones genitals flammable...

    and the rear guard cover you linked in wont work, owing to the way the linkages mount to the swingarm, which is the reason they havent fitted one, i'm assuming...
    Saga or I-thump linked a cover usually used for covering quad shocks, which is going to be the most useful fix...

    v2 with s35 type cam will blow the 175 away tbh , and yes it will fit with stock bore , if you use the 60mm tb piston which can come with the v2 head if u pick it..
