Re: first build!
so rather than startin a new thread, ill just add on to the same bike thread. Well my bike has been running strong for months now, and i recently changed out all my motor bolts ie. mounts, carb in, exhaust off. the other day i got my monark forks 2 in the mail and put them on, the bike looks great, but about 10 miles into my first ride with the new forks my front hub exploded and destroyed my front wheel, so while I sit and wait for new heavier duty wheels and hubs ive read really good threads by barley awake and norman about engine rebuilds and decided to go ahead and tear my engine down and see whats going on and maybe port the cylinder, well i just gor it a part and found out that since i got engine ive been running without a head gasket or a bottom cylinder gasket and two of the bolts threaded right out so ill go ahead and replace those too. one small upgrade(forks) has turned into an entire rebuild of everything.
