Default Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

i'm now tensionerless!

took a look at how some other people were doing it, and saw (forgot the username) had made a spring tensioner that fit between the drive sprocket cover/clutch arm cover. so i machined out just that cover piece and rode the bike, all it needed was something to prevent the chain from jumping off the drive sprocket.

also rebuilt the axle, but need to get a freewheel remover so i can pack some of the bearings better than i did.

also also! got gas and mixed up some 40:1 since the gas in the tank (and some in the can) had 24:1 so it should be around 34-ish:1 next fill will be 32:1 unless i can find some opti-2 or amsoil local then i'll run 80:1 at first then maybe 100:1.

and lowered the E-clip down to #2 (from #1) just to be safe while i'm running the different mix
They see me rollin'
they hatin'
