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

drained the oil out of the engine (it was 5w-30) pulled the cover off, got the govenor gear out. put it back together and filled it with 10w-40

i left the arm in there, since after careful studying, there is no way the arm can swing around and hit the crankshaft. if you look closely at the cotter pin, there's a nub it hits, making a stop so it wouldn't hit the crank.

decided rather than futs with cutting arm off, left it in there, and used it as a pivot for my throttle linkage.

also adjusted the valve lash from .008" to .004" sort of wanting to see about getting some stronger valves so there's no float, as well as figuring out a better flywheel/fan assembly.
They see me rollin'
they hatin'
