Welcome to Jake's General Store, Performance & "Race-Winning parts department of "thejakebike.com"
Why is everybody afraid of the GT-40?! we have a 40mm (longer) stroke version of the coveted GT-5 engine which is super high quality and powerful! A stock GT-40 will run circles around your friends GT-5 bike, and nobody's buying them. Should we list them as a GT-5 with a 40mm stroke? is it a "name brand" thing? I honestly can't believe it. everyone wants a better, more powerful engine. WE HAVE THEM, and nobody's buying them. we're selling tons of GT-5's, but not the new, very high quality, faster and stronger version... WEIRD. Maybe its that extra $10. Anyway, y'all are missing out.
Try a high compression diamond head and one of our mikuni Carbs. you'll see a Crazy power boost! and If you REALLY want to see how these engines are supposed to run, get an expansion chamber exhaust pipe. It's truly the third point in the power triange. (carb, combustion chamber [head] and pipe [expansion chamber]). We suggest a japanese motocross style pipe, or one of our secret recipe pipes. We have 2 types of pipe. 2 pipe types. pipe types deuce! An entry level pipe for those who have relatively stock engines, And a big 'ol fat race pipe for those who want SPEED. but for the fatty you'll have to bring the bike to the shop, as all builds are not equal, and we wouldnt want to build a pipe, mail it, and have it not fit! :-0
We also strongly suggest an HD throttle, and cable rather than the stock kit P.O.S. We have done the research and legwork, so you need not worry about fit and function. its HANDLED! and what a difference it makes to have a solid steel heavy duty motorcycle throttle on your bars; your interface with the engine. short cable for MTB aggro stance bars, and the longer cable for BMX/cruiser bars.
Jake's has many more cool items!!
Laid back seat posts for more tall-guy legroom, we have top end power kits, High Compression Diamond heads, (which keep your engine just as cool as you are.) They increase performance and reduce engine fatigue. They are the perfect amount of punch for these enginesl! not too much, not too little. (we see a lot of blown engines from guys using super high compression heads from that fred guy- who's no mechanic, btw. and never raced a day in his life...(so make your own call on THAT one...)
We carry an ENTIRE LINE OF BILLET SPROCKETS! we have 2 types of mounts for sprockets. the billet aluminum coaster brake hub clamp which doesnt touch the spokes, and the disc-hub mounting biscuit which bolts to the disc rotor bolt bosses.. Our sprockets and mounts ship within 3 days* and are race proven. Our mounts and base-engines are used by our friends at Arrow Motorized Cycles as well.
Please plan your build ahead. We are a small company, and do our best to get you your products as fast as possible. Pleease be aware that we are not MacDonalds. No burgers are under the heat lamp. We are a high end custom bike building shop, carrying niche products.
Remember, Your order is YOUR ORDER. therefore, say you order a ported cylinder-- once we're done making the other guy whose ahead of you's cylinder, we wil begin making yours. Then we will ship it to you. Please understand that while that's going on, we are also building entire bikes for people. The point being, please don't place an order and then start emailing about tracking numbers and shipping the next day- it will be ignored. We use PRIORITY MAIL, which is no longer than 3 days once its shipped, but we do have to make the custom parts, and that takes time. I recently had a guy get mad because he paid for 2-day shipping, and it had been a week... well, we hadn't even had the chance to make the part yet, so please, let us do our jpb and make your stuff- QUALITY STUFF- and then once it does ship, it will be 2 or 3 days. See how that works? patience, grsshopper.
Stuff we have in stock, like sprockets, throttles, heat diffusers, heads, tanks, emngine kits, etc...ships within 3 days of ordering.
