    i would be really interested in a heavy duty tri gear also.My avid is on tri gear now but it doesnt look like it would handle rough fields very well

    Hi , If your vibration is at idle rpm this is normal. I am running HKS on my avid and keep idle rpm around 1100 rpm.Contact the people at Green sky adventures for all the help you will need. Dont hav the contact info near me at the moment.(just google it,good people)

    If nothing else is working I would check compression. Allmotors 2 or 4 stroke require fuel, spark and compression to run. Ihave seen 50 hrs on a 2 stroke require piston rings to bring power up to specs. I have rebuilt lots of performance (was in the business) 2stroke motors (bikes, sleds, quads)and a slight reduction in compress would surprise you in ahurry Just a thought ??!!!.Regards

    Make sure you have good compression on 2 stroke.How many hours since last set of piston or rings installed?  Regards  Steve

    Hi mike  I do not have any pictures on this computer,however aircraft is in my garage now with cowls off so I will try to get a few soon. I am in Saskatchewan close to North Batttleford.I bought this Avid from Ed D antoni in Calgary several years ago. He sold 582 that came with kit and went with Jabiru 2200 but didnt like required maintenance so ended up with HKS                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   Steve
