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

I then tuned my carb by moving the needle from the mid position to second from the top. I gained 5-7 mph to my top speed (i was only getting 20, with a 66cc, and 41t). Most of my four stroking problem is gone and I have a lot of power. Going to move it to the top position next and see if that helps anymore.

I then re-installed my rear rack and put new screws in all the holdings, two had fallen out over the last few months.

Next i'll be adding my turn signals!
For turn signals I did this on front,

And I used some trailer side lights for the rear. If you don't have boxes on your bike you could use these front and back. their not too expensive and it's kinda a bullet light.
I gotta get a better camera.
