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

Oh yeah. I broke a grade 8 socket head cap screw flush with the engine case. When I removed it I found a quarter inch gap in my spacers to mount scheme. So I was flexing everything a quarter of an inch. Stupid me. I think I was in a little too much hurry when I remounted the motor for the third time.

So I redid the spacers to fit perfectly and all seems pretty good now. And yes, locktite works. Still I don't think I was that bad when I did it, I think running changes things a little. Maybe best thing to do is mount the engine, put 10 to 20 miles on it and then check.
The only thing in my garage with 4 wheels is the lawnmower
