  • WTB x GSR25/29 R Frame or 40 frame

    Like the title says, looking for a R frame or 40 frame. Condition doesn't matter so much as long as it isnt bent in any spots.

    Looking for a frame that you are looking to get rid of. Not your prized possession. I don't want to spend a fortune on this.

    I just want to get back into the goped game...

    Help a ped brother out!

        That frame has been on there for a while. It’s nice tho. Doesn’t DDM have the 25/46r frame?

          Yes they do, but that model on their site is the standard 46 frame. Not the older frame I am looking for that is missing the rear brake and slightly shorter in length.

            Would anyone like to do a solid and ask on FB for me? I don't mess with FB, but it seems that's where all the goped traffic is. Anyone think if I post a pic on IG and "#gopednation" I would have a chance?

              I would, but also not on FB. Tell me more about the difference between the old and new version frames? Always wondered. All my builds have been 40 frames so that’s been my only reference. But I have herd that the older style 46 frames are more desirable than the new ones.

                Here is an older thread that gives some differences. I would type them out, but I haven't had my coffee yet.

                  Man You are nuts !!! Just kidding I get why you want the shorter frame cause it does feel a little different but I feel like the downsides out weigh the ups. I have owned atleast a dozen R frames and maybe 6 or so 40s and I ditch them as soon as I get them usually. I feel a UNI frame is the best option especially if this will be something that you want dependability. Let me explain my thoughts.
                  - First the r frame and 40 are slightly smaller making them feel a tad bit more sporty feeling.
                  - The 40 frame has more support for the engine with the engine mounting to a plate instead of hanging from the mount.

                  Now the downsides
                  - 40 frames were replaced with a UNI frame for a reason and it has to do with the way the engine mounts actually and the fact that The UNI frame helps make it truly universal. Most people I have gone on rides with that have 40s are constantly having issues with their chains. This is due to the fact that either the user has no idea they must align their engine with their sprockets and is prematurely destroying chains or the fact that since the engine is mounted you have very little adjustment compared to the uni frame where you can tighten or loosen the chain with one tool. Yes even on a UNI frame you must make sure that your sprockets are aligned but on a 40 you must make sure they are aligned two different ways. Also the engines on 40s constantly seem to come loose causing chain issues and sprocket issues.
                  - Next who wants to be limited to only being able to run a 40? Especially when they end up on a ride and a 290 is showing the 40 what is up. Yes you can spend additional money or make adapters for engines but thats silly when a UNI can pretty much use any goped engine as long as you have the right mount.
                  -Now lets talk about the R frame. Yay Goped now made the 78mm and 54mm mounts work on it how cool!!! Not!! Cool your frame is an inch shorter and now you cant run an ADA chain tension-er and #25h Chain can be really a Pain in the BEEEP if you are not using a chain tension-er. The ada chain tens pretty much solves issues with binding by allowing the chain to be loose and it takes up the slack as you ride down the road. Also realize as you ride your chain gets stiff and then loose the ada chain tension-er will automatically keep proper tension where as the R frame have fun with that.

                  Anyways I just wasted my time horribly explaining why you should get a uni. I remember when I loved my R frame but then I got a UNI and then a TR.

                    ^^^ True that it takes some user knowledge to get the 40 frames dialed in, but the concept is pretty easy. You just can’t bolt everything on like a monkey and go. I’ve never had a chan issue on any of my 40 frames.

                    That being said, I also don’t run a tensioner. The factory tensioner was terribly engineered, The ADA tensioner also works by the same design, complete rubbish. For a 40 frame, use a chain breaker to get the tension as close as possible. Use washers to sim the motor vertically and lastly check left-right movement to make sprockets and chain inline. you’ll feel when it’s smooth.

                    Doesn’t really matter that 40 frame motor options are limited, b/c it’s still capable of fitting all the ones. Also note, for some reason the OEM Goped #25 chains on the 40s aren’t the right size for the sprockets causing a ton of wear. So toss the stock chain and replace with the DDM chain which is much better.

                      Thanks for the input CRMAR! With that said, regardless of the "issues" you claim about the 2 frames I am looking for, I know what I want. I have had both and loved them for each for there own design. I have never been a fan of the UNI frame for some reason. I have access to multiple cnc machines and have been itching to make custom scooter parts like I had in the past.

                      dsport, I completely agree with yoyr first paragraph. I have a 60 motor, but I think I sold the ada tensioner I had on it, but I might make my next build without one.

                      I am also contemplating a quad build, but goped is out of stock on quad frames for the time being. At least per their website. I may call them sometime and see about that. I haven't seen any local at the price I want.
