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

I smacked my CDI down on the workbench, and now I have spark!

I tried cranking it over with a socket on my electric drill. Without the plug in, I got a weak looking spark, so I sprayed a little starting fluid in the plug hole, put the plug in and tried to turn it over with the drill.
The cheap socket broke, so I'll get another one tomorrow.

I tried to pedal start it, and my front tube blew out when I let the clutch out. It tore right at the valve stem, so it's tube time too! LOL

At least I feel like I'm making some progress. I ordered all the components to make my own CDIs too. Then I won't have to depend on the cheap Chinese units!
