4 of 5 I got the Spins June 29, 2017

Yeah this thing is sweet, shimmings no problem, just pick up some extras while you're on here blowing your paycheck anyway.

Like any Puch clutch bell, just make sure that C-clip is extra for sure on the crank in the groove and its not gonna pop off or your clutch bells gonna hit the cover and make a bunch of really cool noises like when you see crime cars get ground up in the movies.

1 star down because from the looks of it you can't replace the roller bearing? I could be wrong on this though, you may just have to use an arbor press.

***TREATS EDIT: yes the needle bearings can be replaced. i do not know the press fit difference so it may require a press like you thought. extra points for the first person to press out the needle bearing and press in a one way bearing.***

If you are have trouble getting shimmed correctly look at how the bearing is installed, it should match the photos here.  Mine was in backwards, the bearing has a smaller opening on one end that matches the small shim.  It will not slide over the crank step if you need it to slide in that far.

5 of 5 Pretty amazing May 22, 2016
taco eater : Jared Bezemes from Derry, NH United States  
I decided to wait on running this until I got a pull starter so I would only have to worry about the bearing side shimming.

Seemed fine on my rito but I'll update this after some good milage.

Right off the bat I noticed that my rpms pick up soo much faster

5 of 5 Fits nice with Rito when shimmed March 31, 2016
taco eater : Aric Aasgaard from Omaha, NE United States  
I was afraid this would be sloppy on my Rito after reading comments and playing with it on a Rito outside of a case.  It was about perfect once shimmed properly, my crank bearings had more play.

4 of 5 a little sloppy on a rito November 30, 2015
taco eater : Anonymous Person from Long Beach, CA United States  
So. I think it is pretty cool treats is making this once custom set up available to the general public, but there are a few little things you should know. I have been running these on a race setup for awhile now, also on minerelli bell KTM set up. Rito crank shafts are a c hair smaller so no matter how close you shim it will always be a little sloppy, Top,and Treats cranks fit nice. After awhile the hard bearing material will wear crankshaft.

4 of 5 Fun November 10, 2015
taco eater : Ike from Minneapolis, MN United States  
Ripped this the last half of summer but might have shimmed it slightly too far out and may or may not have soft-seized over 11.5k rpm and then tried to restart just under that so it's hammered out by the starter now.

Lots of fun but you have to know what your'e doing and obviously I don't.
