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

Your Bike's Rockin' Hard Skarrd!

Nice info about cranks Happy, thnx!

That's gonna be a beast Breno, oh noes you get(have) to build for parts? The horror!

So after my little "incident" last weekend, I felt better enough for a ride today... Driver's side(lol) crank was bent in nicking the muffler. No prob, pipe wrench and a 1" wrench for leverage fixed that. Get'r fired up down the street, ...hmm, exhaust sounds a little loud, pull back home... The friggin exhaust flange was bent! The pipe itself is fine, so it'll be fixable(hammer, lapping with 80grit). So on went a spare pipe and all was well for the ride.

Yea, the flange itself bent, never seen that. Thank you SBP hardware kits hardened studs! Could've been worse, broken exhaust stud(bleh), or the hardened stud could've ripped off a good chunk of my jug, lols.

Long story short, upgrade your studs(as if you didn't know already )

Have a good one.
