We bought a CHEAP 80's KAWASAKI Mini Bike... Will it Run and Ride Again?

Ike bought a barn find mini bike powered by a Kawasaki FA130! We've never seen a factory Kawasaki Mini Bike before, and in today's episode we try to get the bike running and riding again. The mini bike's carburetor was frozen, fuel tank rusty, and the rear wheel stuck, so we installed a new chain and rebuilt the rear axle assembly, installed a brand new 22mm Mikuni carburetor and fuel system, and we took it around the CarsandCameras Grand Prix!

    I am so stuck. I have a tilitson 212ee and there’s a knocking noise. First I thought it was rod knock so I got new bearing and it still was there. Then I thought my clutch superheated me crank and I replaced that and still nothing. I just figured out that something must be hitting the side cover because when I have it off the sound disappears. Anything helps. Thanks.

    Question for someone. I have a mini kinda like the yellow Kawasaki. Gonna rebuild restore it for grandson. Is there a place to find a springer like front end that would fit on in place of the stock one it has. Stock is locked up shocks an a hole in one of the shock tubes. But like the springer look

    A friend when I was a kid back in the late 70's had one of these. I had forgot all about it until you mentioned the light. That reminded of the bike and that it was a Kawi. My friends dad owned a dealership that sold Kawasaki. You are triggering memory cells that have not be accessed in decades :)

Did a little shaving maybe a very thin copper gasket. every little bit helps! Get that compression up a little then some hot fuel . Maybe some VP 116. I know where you can get really hot fuel, but you guys better stick with under 10 Hp!! 👍👍👌 👀

    And paint the handle bars and frame. Taller more aggressive tires. I was impressed that it still ran what a stroke of luck. Had spark right of the bat. A torque converter would help out on top speed and power. A taller seat foam would help you some so you dont have to squat so much all crunched up. You could put a 1 inch thick board under the seat to raise it up 1inch. Yes that starter is going to make hamburger out of your leg it needs a cover like you said.

    The new racing format is awesome and tells us a lot about the racers. 1) Charles has a strong will to live and makes smart decisions. 2) To Ike winning is everything. (Rumer has it he lost 1 time, but no cameras, no loss) 3) John is tired of losing by a fraction of a second to Ike, and is fine tuning his skills for total world domination.
