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

I did a couple things over the last week. replaced my homemade throttle setup with a kit throttle that another member gave me. The little plastic pin was broken off (a common occurrence on the kit throttles) so I drilled a hole and put a spare exhaust stud through it. installed it on the handlebar and it aint going anywhere. I installed two brand new tires, a new rear motor mount, a new brake lever and cable for my front drum, a new kmc Z410H-NP (nickel plated) chain. Had a time with the chain. The side plates are 20% thicker than regular 410 chain. I had to wiggle the chain back and forth a bit and help it out with a pair of pliers. I moved my bar-end mirror from my right handlebar to my left, and moved my clutch lever about an inch closer to my stem to give my hand a little extra room. I also installed a new rag on my sprocket recently, and used nylon locking nuts this time. No more red loctite on those.
