Hello every one
I'm building a edge piranha and I'm wondering how to mount my gear stick on the right hand side the engine it self got the gear pedal on the left?
Also any body knows where can I pay a fuel tank for the buggy ?
Thanks

I ended up with a left hand shifter. Otherwise i had made a 1/2" tube to be mounted in small bearings or bronze bushed tabs to go across somewhere behind the seat with an arm on each side. left to the engine, right to the stick. just didn't have the room and i prefer to have the wheel in my right hand.

Did you had the clutch on the stick as we'll ?

I have an old quad engine with an auto clutch. A lot of people just set up a handlebar clutch lever right on the stick. If and when i ever upgrade the engine, i've got a push-pull cable design in mind that i want to have tied into the stick so i don't have to actually pull a lever or push a pedal. It'll pre-actuate the clutch when i shift up or down with the stick.
