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

My second/third hand motor on my C-List bike,started running very weak, So I decided to take a look inside. Piston, scored- cylinder, Gouged- rings nicked and scored. Totally toast!! So I decided to tear it down and order parts.
First I tried the Mechanics approach, but was soon convinced these little Chinese engins have had classical Eastern training. I started with the Kung Fu, then progressed to Jujitsu, and finally NinJistu, All failed. Wat did seem to work was the Steve Irwin technique. I fought it like aligator, wraped my legs around it, twisted and turned, rolled around, got my fingers inside everything I could, and then finally,,,,,,,,,the engine gave up, and let me inside.
So, tonight, I will clean and degrease everything, and start reasembly with the new parts that arrived, and see if I can get it running again.
Tons of fun!!!
Watching my kids enjoy what they have learned and built, is why we started MB'ing
