Minibikes: Torque Converter vs. Centrifugal Clutch


Minibikes: Torque Converter vs. Centrifugal Clutch

John and Ike make modifications to get the mini bikes running properly (John’s needed a carb jet and Ike’s had a bad carburetor), we do some testing, Ike goes off a jump, and we try a hillclimb.

Thanks for Watching!

    You guys need to get some baja warrior minis.  Be a bit bigger and manage the TC a bit better.

    You guys really need to add Sea Foam to gas. That eliminates the varnish issues that you're having in carbs.

    here's an idea. how about building a chopper mini bike? raked front end, Springer rear, wide rear tire and a 670. you'd probably have to design and build you're own frame. could be an awesome winter project! what ya think?

    there should be a piece of brass don't know what it's called above the jet it has several holes in it you got to reach up in there like with a coat hanger or take your carburetor off push it out from the top and clean it out and it will idle

    after watching this i went and bought a torque converter for my baja warrior that i had put a 212 predator on, i also was told that my 212 was a rare one because it was a hemi, but besides the point my top end is 47 from just an engine swap and a torque converter.

    ik this is a old video, but I have a motor suggestion for one of those. get one of those cheap Chinese 110 or 125 four-wheelers and take the motor and electronics out then set it in. ive got a Baja warrior that i did that to and it will pop wheelies easy. It weighs about two times more than my manco dingo.

    Hey John and Ike! I have a question.. I have my own mini bike (one of the older BAJA) and the cain keeps falling off. I installed a custom spring loaded chain tensioner and it works pretty well. One thing im wondering is it of will take some power from the wheel. any thoughts?

    Nice clutch, cool leopard print seat, air filter… mini bikes & powered 'billy carts' (without brakes), boy did I have some crazy fun with these from about age 12 to 17. It's still fun watching you guys doing that stuff.
    Did anyone notice a possible high altitude chemtrail at 6.50s? AKA it's geo-engineering where 'someone else' gets to control the weather., i.e. who gets rain, heat, snow & or hurricanes. United Nations (U.N) Treaty of 1976 banned Weather Modification Technology for use in warfare, but not in 'peace-time'; that's if there's ever been 'global peace' since the the formation of the League of Nations which became the United Nations. The greatest number of wars has occurred since the U.N. came to power. FYI: The U.N. is the unelected 'government' most countries don't know they have. See Agenda 21, & Agenda 21/30. That U.N. Treaty of 1976 that banned Weather Modification Technology, look it up for yourself, then see H.A.A.R.P..

    You said you can't get a more open jet for your carb without air filter modifications and what not, is that because it'd be to rich or what?
