They went back to a starter clutch shortly after realizing what a huge mistake they made and everyone's cases getting grenaded.. This will most likely happen to every one of these models eventually. There's a lot of info about it on the Google machine.

Yep, Speedo drive should have grease in it. Packed in but not necessarily packed totally full.

I've never seen a two toned headlight surround. Not to say it doesn't exist but I'd just paint yours to your liking.

Skid Plate

I see a few skid plates for under $100. Procycle and Kientec each sell one. Are these items quality items or should I spring for the more expensive ones available? Pros and cons for ones that are available.
