    Looks like a 1997-2000 model. Comes with the G23LH engine. Looks all original, except the tires have been replaced with the TT tires. Stock came with AT tires

        Hows your tire pressure? At least 30 psi? Is the spindle smooth? Does it have the stock spindle that feels like gritty sandpaper? Is the cable clutch releasing the cable enough ? It may need adjustment.

            Yes very bald. I recommend a new spindle. A 0.750 is a good all around size. I also recommend buying a black magic straight knurl. It’s what I use on my Bigfoot and go off roading all the time. It also extends tire life compared to a stock spindle. Also your tire is on backwards lol. The valve stem on mine is on the engine side.

                i only see 0.675 and 0.800 sizes available at the moment. You may be able to try some other goped parts sites to source a 0.750, otherwise a 0.675 will be fine. It’s the same as a stock spindle. If you don’t hav any hills around, and just cruise on flat surfaces then an 0.800 will be ok. It will lack some acceleration though so I wouldn’t recommend it without some mods. When u source the spindle, make sure it’s the Bigfoot version..... it’s longer because of the bigger wheel.

                    The gtr46. It does come with a pretty price tag though. Average price around 800 for a used one. Seen some go for as little as 500 stock. I payed 950 for mine used. If it’s wet all the time then at least get a replacement stock OEM spindle. It’s gritty sand surface works well when it’s wet, offering the most traction you can get from a spindle.
