I looked all day at the internet for a solution even the Volkswagen dealer tells me about a metal clip get a knife in there. So after staring at a picture of a replacement crank I figured it out on my own. Please reply on other years and models this applies to also. I quite like that it's rather easy but then people can take your crank rather easily too. Still,replacing a door window in these cars is rather easy and you need to know how this comes off so I hope this helped somebody.

You need a Library card and you're all set. It sure beats opening up Chilton books at a parts store then having to pay for it because you did. Best of all you can do this all at home. A MUST FOR HOME MECHANICS! Direct link: http://www.anythinklibraries.org/24-7-library

I have to get used to this thing. You have to let your engine rev a little high so that the CVT catches up with your speed. I have to say it's quite eerie but at the same time it just RULES. Notice I use a 5 speed cluster wheel because it freewheels. The freewheel makes pedaling this trike like there's no engine when I need to turn my engine off like when I'm entering a park or flea market! Later plans call for getting this gearing a little lower by changing the 15 tooth jack shaft sprocket to a 16 tooth.

I rigged a better clutch cable design on my 70cc bicycle engine. The original way get's too close to the engine and has a pretty hard kink before the cable reaches the clutch arm. This design allieviates the kink and another benefit is the absolute ease of engaging the clutch now. More information here: http://www.motoredbikes.com/showthread.php?p=100405#post100405

I rechecked my Map Quest again and I had actually travelled 26 miles,just 4 miles short of 30. This tank takes a liter of fuel or 1/4 of a gallon of gas or in today's prices about what? 85 cents to fill up? Range should be 40 miles. That's 160 miles per gallon boys and girls.I'm thinking it's more,though. And I weigh 275 at the moment. Can anyone say "Stick it to the man?" Check out the Titan at thatsdax.com

You can eye ball it when adjusting your chain but if you have that Monk condition I actually do to a point and you want to adjust your carrier PERFECTLY then watch this video. When you adjust it this way you really can just leave it be. I still check my adjustments daily before every ride. Check with your nut and bolt and you can pick up everything and catch possible loose nuts whatever in about 15 seconds.

Gotta give props to these guys: http://www.bikewebsite.com/build.htm Those boys made it rather easy. I took my time but it didn't take that long at all. Now I have a 3 speed 20 inch wheel for my buggy bike! It's gonna have gears! Stay tuned.

The CVT is still not going to top gear but it does get close. When I install that freewheel on the jackshaft I think I'm gonna go with a 16T. It's nice to finally have front brakes. I still need to switch out that thick chain on my pedals but that's it.

Named after the developmentally disabled man that passed away,this was his bike. He called me "Buggy" whenever he said hi. I motorized it! Engine borrowed from Cronus. Carrier from Cronus. Cronus has a new Chrome Carrier. When funds become available,Cronus will get a new engine. But for now,swapping is no big deal. For more info on this Titan engine visit ThatsDax,com First ride with Dozer as a passenger. Dozer is a Dashound one of five little dogs that I own.

Sorry my finger cut this video off when I was riding but you see how she runs. Up a slight hill the CVT wants to stay in low gear. Top end is good but down low I'm literally crawling so I may need to switch my 16T freewheel to a 14T. That 14T I'll be able to keep up with scooters how crazy is that?

Extra thick slime tube. 40 psi of air. It exploded. I was actually 7 miles away from home. I really think my 280 pounds of weight is just too much for what I'm asking my rear tire to do with most of my weight on there and having my drive engine on there too. Tire is Kelvar. I'll go back to a NoMoreFlats tube. Problem with those is sometimes you can't get them perfectly aligned. But it won't leave you flat. And that's more important to me. I really did to buckle up and lose some weight. For real if I want to continue riding. My front tire incidentally is my original tire and wheel. 6,000 plus miles and still good thread. Back wheel has been changed 4 times it's a wheelman wheel now and I've gone thru 6 tires. Go figure.

This Titan kit mod is a bolt on. The 10 tooth sprocket that comes with the Titan kit is a bolt on. The CVT clutch housing and mounting bolts also a bolt on. Still need to flip the carrier so the CVT sprocket will line up to the Titan jack shaft sprocket. Then maybe I'll retain the 3 speed eh eh eh!!!!

Returning to Colorado from New Mexico we spot this huge hail cloud that seemed to reach beyond the sky. We entered it like you would enter a cave then suddenly we had to pull over for we couldn't see in front of us at all. I almost caught a semi Jack Knifing in front of us but he corrected. Boy was hauling ass. Rental car had no damage. Thank god I vouched not to get the insurance.

Short video to show how relatively easy it is to ride cronus with engine off. No chains were removed. I simply had my engine shut off. My cruiser is a single speed coaster with 44/16 gearing. Within the park I don't dare ride my bike with engine running. Just another versatility to my bike. Motor up to the park then get you can get your excersise in when you get there. Sticking it to teh man!!
