WHY THUMPSTAR? – INTRODUCTION
Genuine Thumpstar® is the original mini motorcycle designed for adults, imported in Australia.
Thumpstar was founded 2004 in Australia by a racer named Timothy Hunter. While attending a Trade Fair in late 2003, he stumbled across a pit bike, felt the necessity to import it and make modifications and improvements. In April 2004 he signed a contract with a Taiwanese Company to help build these bikes. Thumpstar was born.
FACTORY TS1 PARTS
Thumpstar Factory TS1 parts are one of the newer changes to our bikes. We got the best guy’s in the industry to put there input into our factory part designs. We have armed our models with these parts and with improved performance and a great design these parts are a giant leap ahead of the competition.
Pipe Bomb – The new Pipe Bomb exhausts add more punch with a great sound. These Exhaust systems have been made with lighter weight materials as well as a redesigned muffle system, increasing exhaust gas flow yet still keeping the sound within required decibel limits. In addition these exhaust systems have been designed shorter, making them less susceptible to crash damage. You can check out their website at www.pipebombexhaust.com

Thumpstar goes the extra mile when it comes to production. We can’t share too much of our trade secrets but all our manufacturing in 2016 has been stricter than ever, with a long list of procedures put in place to ensure quality. We have Australian and New Zealand mechanics overseeing assembly. Quality is a priority at Thumpstar as well as customer satisfaction.
THE SMALLER DETAILS
Thumpstar not only focuses on what’s outside and what can be seen, we also focus on the smaller details which make Thumpstar pull ahead of the competition. Our bolts are torqued up to specifications that our experts have specified using torque formulas.
We apply thread locker to the bolts that need it so you can guarantee these bolts cannot rattle loose. Over years of experience we have identified these bolts that are common for coming loose not only on Thumpstar’s but all makes and models, our guys have experience riding every bike out there and are well aware of which bolts are common for coming loose. We have fixed this issue with either thread locker or mechanical nuts.
Lubricant – We fill our engines with high quality 10W40 semi synthetic motor oil to keep our engines moving parts lubricated and corrosion free. Grease is applied to the axles and cables are sprayed with our high tech spray on lubricant to get that split second faster on the start gate and guarantee you the hole shot as well as preventing the cables from fraying.

COLOR & GRAPHICS
Thumpstar’s official color is Chartruese also known as Neon. All Thumpstars are manufactured this color.
But we know customers like to choose their own colors, so Thumpstar has a option for around $100, customers can choose their own plastics and graphics, depending on the model we have Green, Yellow, Blue, Red, Pink, White and Black.
Another good reason to have a second set of plastics and graphics is if you decide to sell your Thumpstar, you can install the original plastics and have the bike like look like-new.
