Looks like the Ecotec scene is about to get really interesting. Keep us up to date!

I rode my old EcoCombee with my girl last weekend until we were sunburnt and tired.
Topped it off so the boy could use it, 7 gallons!

That engine looks killer PTR, send more pictures.

Terry, just curious ...... why did you rivet the poly instead of bonding it on. Easier to replace?

The only bonded poly that's worth a damn is the oceapoly product from Linktech. Crown left me hanging and wouldn't back their product when it failed. Even left me with $10k worth of product. For the price, I'm content with riveted poly.
