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


Are you getting away from the caged needle bearing to the bushing for better balance and for better high RPM reliability?

Just curious because I remember reading a post saying these are 2 of the advantages of having the bushing on the piston pin verses having the needle bearing, if I remember right.

also need to do some figuring out on the expansion pipe since it's too long for the power band i'll be in (motor's gonna be hitting 8k now, so it'll need to be adjusted to suit that range). also may flip the jug around and see if i like it backward.
I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
