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

Removed the "red" CNS carb that came on my Skyhawk kit and replaced it with a NT "Speed" carb.

After scratching my head for over two hours trying to figure out why I couldn't get any power under throttle, I removed the float bowl to uncover that the Jet tube had no threads and the jet was just sitting on the bottom of the bowl. I tapped new treads into it and screwed the jet in place. It ran perfectly. I was ale to get the motor to idle for the first time since I assembled it.

I removed the SBP expansion pipe kit because the exhaust header was spewing fuel and the silicon hoses had been obliterated. I replaced it with the stock one until I can figure out why the black header pipe is 1/16" too large in diameter to accept the copper exhaust tubing that was supplied.

I replaced the crappy Walmart seat with a Brooks flyer springer saddle. I can't wait for it to break in, though. My grundle is not pleased after riding fifty miles to check durability.

And some other little stuff that isn't of consequence. Mostly aesthetic fixes.
