.585 1st gear will pull my front wheel up or spin the tire lots and lots of torque. My shop is at the end of gravel driveway I have to be careful twisting throttle while on it.
Ps. This thread is from 2015…

If it hasn't been posted before, your stock BD valve springs won't work with the .600" cam.

John, I have heard the '05 and '06 (when BDM was assembling their own motors) have the red stripe triple springs rated for .640 or something like that. Have you seen these in your shop or is this BS?

I've had maybe 2 sets of heads in with the good springs. 2nd owner bikes. Primarily I posted as a warning to never take things for granted when not sure. Retainers with the holes, are dangerous as well, even with stock springs.

for a 117 cc , get a Bob Woods 635, Wow.
