    Shinzo 700 what size?

    The new tires worked out really well! I ended up doing a lot more on road than off over the weekend but enough of both to be happy. On road I really noticed the difference over stock, it was a much smoother ride and quieter. Off road I had no issues, I was running 40-50 mph on fire roads. So far so good for the 700’s

    Moped question

    I wouldn’t take that risk. The 250l is for adults, it’s capable of 65+ mph and a decent size machine. I would think the first problem-before all the legal stuff-is can your son even touch the ground with his feet. I would look into an electric bicycle. They don’t draw too much attention and are capable of 25+ mile range depending on the bike and terrain.

    Shinzo 700 what size?

    I got the tires mounted up today! Was a good learning lesson doing it myself. I did pinch a tube and had to patch it but I got it down now. Will be doing my tires myself from now on. The 4.6 rear tire was the perfect size. I hope to go to some dirt next week and try them out.

    Shinzo 700 what size?

    Ok that makes sense. The 4.6 converts to 116x116-that’s assuming that there is no aspect ratio listed so the height is the same as the width, the 130/80 is 130x104, the stock 120/80 is 120x96. That’s why I was struggling to choose because by the numbers the 130/80 is taller and wider, the 4.6 is narrower and taller, however I’m not 100% on the height of the 4.6, I just know the width is close to 120, so I’m hoping it’s also close in height. I didn’t want a bigger tire basically.

    Shinzo 700 what size?

    I didn’t see a 3.5 listed on all the sites I checked that were selling them. Only the 130/80x18 and the 4.6x18.

    Shinzo 700 what size?

    I want to get a set of shinko 700 tires for my 250L. I’m not too sure on the sizing, I’m having trouble locating good info on the subject. Front I know is 3.0x21, it’s the rear I’m unsure of. They only offer 130/80x18 or 4.6x18. I want to stay as close to possible as stock tire size, and body run these and know what size worked best?

    Adding more light

    I finally had some time today to get my lights wired up. I also installed a dual USB port-that I used to mount my light switch on. I’m really happy with how it turned out. Now I just need to adjust the lights when it’s dark. The only thing I don’t like about the switch is it has small red and green led lights that indicate on/off. I worry about the led draining the battery. I keep it on a tender at home. I may look to find a way to disable the light on the switch.

    250L modified arrestor

    I believe I used 1” pipe. That sounds better for sure. I had to play around with different pipe sizes to get the sound I wanted. It’s all trial and error.

    250L modified arrestor

    By design the screen of a spark arrestor doesn’t restrict much at all. In the case of the 250l you can see the screen is wrapped around a tube with slots in it. Therefore it’s the slots that create the back pressure. You can see here there are 3 opening for the gas to escape through.
