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

started my bike for the 1st time today! It's loud & smelly....I think the paint is burning off the muffler.

First time I tried to start it I forgot to open the petcock. There was a clunk, then a couple of smaller clunks. I'm not sure what exactly went down, but I spent the next 45 minutes scanning the street for the drive chain's master link. Can't believe I found all the pieces.

Back in the garage, I decided to hang it for the first startup instead of doing it on the road. Probably a good thing, because it turns out the throttle is sitting wide open & it can't be slowed down. I probably would've gotten dumped on my butt. Maybe my head. Time to learn about the carb, choke, & throttle.....
