    That makes two of us. That's the main reason I started dabbling in GX200s and Clones. Thing with those is, you screw up, ahhh, it was a $99 engine and now I have parts.

    I guess if you trust the seller, it's a good buy. I'm surprised at the price of it myself. If it's legit, I like it.

    Yes, the 161QMK is a B-block. What I'm saying is that it is NOT 200cc (actually 170cc, 61mm bore) and you can't bore it any further because the oil port is closer to the cylinder skirt than on a 150cc B-block. If you get a 150cc, 57.4mm bore B-block, you could big bore it to 67mm. That's the difference.

    That's pretty amazing how little the anodized sheave wore. I should look into that.

    The scrappy GY6-200 is not 200cc (more like 162cc I think?). You also can't Big Bore it because of the oil port. Stick with the B-Block.

    Keep in mind this only refers to WOT:
    If it's lean, try jetting up a few sizes.
    If it's rich, jet down a few sizes.
    It's pretty much trial and error until you get it right. My Carbide had a 114 stock and after a bit of testing, it seems to like a 118 in the summer and a 120 in the winter.

    Well well well, am I screwed or what:

    It's that dreaded P. I was just about to put the upper swingarm back in place and this caught my eye. It is on top of the CVT-side of the case, centered front to back. I never noticed this before because it was just in the right spot to be hidden under the electrical box that's welded to the upper swingarm. Glad I caught this but now I got an A8 cam to throw in the art bin.

    Hey, if you know the programming of the Raspberry Pi, it's ten times better than an Arduino. Sadly my programming skills don't
    #include <Raspberry_Pi.h>
    ...yet...

    My way of thinking is a current shunt on the alternator telling an Arduino where to position a servo connected to the throttle. Heck if you have an Arduino, you can make some other cool sh!t happen. Auto-start, speed control, self test, etc. Heck it could be it's own standby generator!

    You'd pretty much have to do an alternator setup because you're never going to get a GY6 to maintain +/-5% rpm. It might actually be a benefit to use an alternator because you could speed up the engine under load but let it idle at low loads.
    I'm all for it!
