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

But I stil lam breaking it in I just need to be a bit careful not to push thrpottle past that point. I have the needle valve set to 2nd to lowest setting to start but opened her up and put on third from bottom. Checked everything for tightness.

Also, bought a wireless turn signals ( bicygnals) and set all that up but ended up removing them. They are not working right for me for some reason. They worked fine without the bike started but after rolling around with engine on the back turn indicators didnt work. I tried it a few times but I think that they vibrate too much and that screws up the "synchronicity" between units and/ or some how the 2.4 ghz signal gets jammed. Oh well

I will try the cheap chinese ones next.
You know, I wondered about that, Fugit. Your's is a 66 cc China Girl, right? With my first bike, about two years ago, I went out on a ride and I took my cordless phone handset with me to test the range. I can't remember the brand anymore; it was a translucent purple 2.4 gig thing that I don't have anymore. But I remember that no matter how close I was to the house I always had static. I just thought it was the phone, but now I wonder, because it worked fine when I was on foot. When I had the bike idling - static. Maybe it needs one of those things (can't think of the proper name) that they put in cars to cancel static coming in on the radio speakers from the motor.
Say, I wonder what havoc I've been causing by just puttering around our community here. How many people have been on the phone, heard me coming, and thought "Aw crap - not again!"?
