Our DIY Full Suspension Mini Bike is FINISHED! | SIMPLE Mini Dirt Bike Pt. 2
Our custom mini bike build is finished! We built a full suspension mini bike from scratch in just a few days, and it's ready for a ride! In today's episode, we build a swing arm, build brackets for our front brake, mount the fuel tank, seat, engine, exhaust, and everything else we need to ride this 212cc mini bike!

Thanks for Watching!

Shock: the shock we ordered and set the bike up for was very poor quality. When we find a new one, this link will be updated in a newer episode.

We used a fuel tank from a Honda Z50R, we used 1.25" tubing 0.083 wall for the upper frame rail, and 1" tubing 0.083 wall for the rest of the chassis (the build isn't completed yet but we wished we had used a slightly thinner wall tubing).

    Falling rate suspension is the issue. You need rising rate.falling rate means is gets softer as it compresses.

    2 shocks one both sides like on Honda Monkey could work. makes it stiffer and u can angle them better. the current angle is bad. it should be on that angle when its compressed and not when its resting. the angle when its compressed is extremely taxing on it and wont last long, most likely the shaft is gonna bed or at worst case snap in half

    Should be able to use shorter chunks of rubber with washers. That way you get SOME vibration dampening without having to worry about the chain so much.

    One of your future video projects should be to build a mini bike lift table for building future bikes. Your plasma cutter could make some cool parts for it and it would not only benefit you guys but also subscribers who want to build the same thing and get off the shop floor.

    Sweet project!

  • aalecustom

    it looks sku good boys. But you must have moved the rear spring. The angle of it is completely wrong, it should be more perpendicular to the rear swingarm when pressed together. it will make it stronger when compressed.

    If theres to much engine movement from the rubber mounting beneath, could you put a couple rubber mounts on the top also? (Factory tank mounts)

    The shock not only has to support the weight of the rider, but also half the weight of the mini-bike and the mass forces imposed on the shock during compression. I'd be surprised if that little shock will work. We will see.

    nicest would be to put the axle shaft for the rear fork through the back pulley of the cvt drive , that way the chain coming off the pulley goes straight to the rearwheel and shouldnt slack with the suspension all the way in , though youre way should work too m my way can put the wheels closer together it will mount the motor solidly to the frame though donna you know like this woman i know ...... the one with all the nice features .......

    Hey guys! From one fabricator to the next... thats a nice build. Im sorta doing the same thing you guys are, in building something outa nothing, and wonder... would you ever share the work load? Notice i didnt say "Limelight" thats because im not the gatta be on cam kind of guy... but i am the gatta buiild kind of guy... uh example... wouldnt a cantilever work on that pesky rear suspention? It would eliminate alot of need from the spring by placing the initial force in the linkage...Also it wouldnt take up much more space... actually it wouldnt take up any more than what you already are! And, dont you guys think that a top motor mount is necessary?

  • Nick W

    The angle on that shock lol, come on guys, you’re way better than that, you’d be ideal with like a CRF 110 rear shock and the right angle

  • richToFEn1337

    @CarsandCameras you should look at a shock linkage like what dirtbikes have for that rear shock there isnt much space to lay the shock down more without giving it that stinkbug stance and a new better air filled shock wouldn't hurt either after the better shock that frame will be able to take on crfs and xr80s

    I thought maybe u can drill a bigger hole in rubber engine mounts and slide a pipe through that's slightly shorter than rubber mount, so you still have some squeeze to it

    As to the rubber motor mounts. how do you think they would do on a belt driven instead of a chain driven. I have an Owosso Explorer that has a torque converter system built into the frame kinda. Trying to get a nice smooth ride for the road. Any comments to help. Thanks.
