Made some more progress on the e start. It does work on a fully charged battery. And if I ride around for a little bit the bike does charge it enough to get another e start out of it, so far from the few trips in the hood.
So I just have to keep it on a battery tender forever when not in use. This will keep the battery at max charge. I notice the voltage will drop quite a bit throughout the day if not on the charger, and its a new battery. So not sure whats up with that. Even if the e start does not work because my voltage dropped a little, I can tap my hand hard against the battery door cover and it will work. So at least I can still use it rather then kicking it.


Got all my parts in today new front fender (color matches fine) , new tires, innertubes, filter, new headlight with replaceable bulb and few other little things.

Ended up ordering a 15 tooth sprocket, carb and brakes the other day only to find out my brakes are way thick just needed to adjust the lever some. Thought my rear was metal to metal as it squeaked so bad.

Only reason I got a new carb is it has a removable pilot jet. My stock does not and I cant take it out to clean it. Plus I have a slight bog at a certain throttle spot and want to see if the new carb fixes that. Plus who knows what little passage could be dirty from age.

Rides way better now with the tires I can feel the difference. Plus now I feel better about hitting the turns faster. My old rear tire was bald.
I mistakenly got both tires the same size as the front which was the sizes it had on it when I got it. I later saw I could go slightly wider in the rear but the new tire still mounted just fine. The rear rim is wider then the front so I guess my tire stretched and is wider then the front now.

Found I had a 16 tooth sprocket from some engine and while the bike seemed to run the same accelerating, the monster hills down my street showed it really took away hill climbing. Where with the stock 14 I could climb in 2nd at 16 mph, the 16 I had to go into first and get about 10 mph. It did help with top speed but since I rarely go top speed and climb more hills I dont think im going to use the 16 right now.

So I hope the 15 I ordered will be a happy medium. Hope it will lower rpm's a little more at top speed and still be able to hill climb at a decent speed.

Don't know if my Lifan came with a 14t, but the chain size wasn't correct. So I immediately went to a 17t in the correct chain size. With the 17t on my 124cc, on 2.50x17 tires, pickup and go is still very good, hill climbing is easy, and top speed is aprox 65mph

I have been thinking how the ride would be with a 15t or so though.

yeah my lifans 125 (stock 14T) have alot lower first gear so you could pull off a larger front sprocket since its so much easier to change then the rear
I would use a 17 on my 140cc (stock 16T) but I read you have to cut into the cover so the chain clears
I guess if you have no cover then its not an issue

but im still using stock honda 70cc 3 speed along with zumasan so first gear is going to be different then a lifan 125cc-140cc

Just drop a lifan 125 or 150 and go to 12v setup.

Yo, yo, yo, yo! I is here! Mike i've been spying on two Passports on CL. What would you pay for? Also any specifics on the lifan engine? I need to know how big we can go on the bore. Did you call that place out in Klantee?

all depends on condition, if its running or not and if its titled and all that
send me the links

you have to think about engine sizes
you have skinny tires, weak suspension, weak brakes, weak chain
if you keep the white leg shield on it blocks alot of air flow, mpg with larger engine
even though you have I think gallon and a half larger engine will suck more fuel
also exhaust
we slightly gutted the stock for the 125 and it ran okay
so you may have to figure in the cost for an exhaust too and if you go larger cc then definitely get a better exhaust
and if you want to keep that low running exhaust I cant remember if I ever saw anything thats for larger engines unless you do full custom pipe


I wouldnt go bigger then 125cc
but if its running try the 70cc for a while
the bikes are squirrley enough stock
