I can't find instructions, or a manual on a Sportrack Bike shuttle rear bike rack, says model number is A1124, and in smaller letters/numbers below is QS1124. any help?


Just Google brand/model, look for videos or even just pics that show it mounted. Rear racks are similar, not all that complex, so even a similar model instructions or video should be sufficient. Or just contact the manufacturer, found in a simple Google search for the rack: Contact Us SportRack US

How to tune / de-restrict a 2 stroke


2 strokes in lower ccs are usualy slow, so heres a list of things you can do to de-restrict and tune your 2 stroke.

1) Get a racing exhaust, Key part too most 2 strokes is a good exhaust, this will remove some restrictions. Gianelli, Big One, fmf and many others are available on ebay or your local bike shop.

2) Big Bore kit, adding a big bore kit can give up to 30% more performance, and will usualy de-restrict the bike. search ebay for (Bike Model) (year) Big Bore kit. it will come usualy with everything you need for the upgrade.

3) Carbon Reed Valves, are a key part too your acceleration, also removing the little cages that stop them opening all the way and replacing with big washers is another good step, make sure theres nothing for your reeds to nock on when removing the cage.

4) Boost Bottle, a boost bottle will help 2 strokes with no reed valves more then reeded bikes but will give alot more low and high end performace. search ebay for (bikes cc) boost bottle.

5) Jets, are a key thing when getting a bore kit or race exhaust. you MUST change the jets if you change exhaust, get bigger ones if you get an exhaust go a few sizes over and check the spark plug if its a brown tan/ grey collor you got it all right, if its black it means you have to much fuel so go smaller, and if its white it usualy means not enough fuel. you can buy jets from any motorcycle shop usualy around $1 a peice. you onyl need to change the Main jet.

6) Air Filter, you dont need it on most bikes but it could add extra acceleration, measure your carbeurator intake and search it on ebay for a K&N style filter, Power filter.

7) Restrictors in the intake, some 2 strokes have restrictors between the carb and the cylinder, it is key to remove these or drill them out to the size of the carb/ cylinder hole size.

8) Sprockets, if your lucky enough to have a chain and sprockets, its a nice trick to change sprockets on your bike.
For Top Speed - Bigger front sprocket & smaller rear sprocket
For Acceleration - Smaller front sprocket & bigger rear sprocket
by bigger or smaller i mean more or less teeth on the sprocket. if you go for speed your acceleration will lack and vice versa if you go for acceleration you will loose top speed.

9) Electical Restriction, Some bikes are restricted in the CDI, if yours does not want to reach a good RPM search up CDI, de-restriction. usualy it involves cutting a wire between the CDI and engine. and will unlock that slow engine into a screaming 2 stroke.


If you follow all these steps your 2 stroke will no longer be restricted and slow and will be the fastest arround.

How do you adjust the brackets to open wider on a unisport car roof rack


Im not positive with those but usually they have a hex screw on the pilars that you loosen, then slide the pilar forward/back on both sides, then re-tighten. Newer racks have easy position turn style knobs but older ones have a screw or bolt and may have a plastic cover that you have to pop out with a flar head.

Trying to install Sunlite HD tourer rear carrier #45772. on a Rand 18 speed. There are no holes for front brackets in frame. Do you just drill the holes?


Never drill holes in a bike frame unless you have a death wish. "Rand 18-speed" doesn't tell us much. Most cheapo bike frames have a 'brake bridge' with a hole on the center for mounting accessories like fenders. Many racks can mount with a single rather than double front supports.. Lacking that, call a bike shop or web search for "bicycle seatstay rack clamps" to adapt the rack to attach to the seat stays.

Sunlite also makes a seatpost rack mount http://www.bikebagshop.com/sunlite-rack-mount-seat-post-clamp-p-1146.html?gdftrk=gdfV22203_a_7c1316_a_7c5544_a_7c11461678151 which looks like a more elegant way to solve the problem.

I have a mens schwinn midmoor bike that I'm trying to find a rear rack for. Where do I attach the rack at under the seat? Do I need a seat clamp attachment? What size? I'd appreciate any help! :) ...


The most secure and sway-free type would be one that bolts to the bike at at least three points, not simply clamping the seatpost.

Blackburn and Topeak make some nice ones. They mostly bolt to those pre-drilled holes above and behind the rear axle and most say what wheel-size bike they will fit plus they have a range of adjustment (usually via bendable metal braces) for reaching that key third point near the top of the seatstays or brake bridge.

How do you install rear bike rack on a bike with disc brakes?


Depends. If it's a frame with the rear caliper inside the rear triangle the rack will usually bolt right on. If it's a frame with an IS mount caliper hanging off the back of the seatstay you will usually need a to use a longer bolt and a spacer to let the brake and rack share a mounting point. If it's a bike with a post mount brake you will probably have to improvise something. P-clamps can be helpful.

Instruction for the top dish rack were missing from my order. The rack is for Whirlpool quiet wash plus dish washer. Do you have the instructions?


The top rack is generally for things like glassware, bowls, cups, saucers, and plastics items. Smaller and more fragile pieces go on the top, bigger items on the lower rack. This is the general rule for all dishwashers.
