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

I replaced the rear axle (stripped/worn threads), and repacked the hub. I was cleaning out the carburetor and noticed it had a crack on it, so I dried it out and bagged it for spares, and put another carb on it.

Next, I'm making the rear hub a free coaster by taking out the shoes and putting in washers, and installing a caliper brake instead. I got tired of the coaster brake because I can't pedal backwards, so if I move my feet, I have to pedal around to level the pedals again. Also, I don't want to hear a clicking freewheel, so this will do nicely for a silent hub.

Then I will sand the brake tracks on the wheels for more traction, put some gas in the tank, and go for a ride. It's been a month or so since I went motor biking.
