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

I put the tank back on the cruiser today. For some reason getting the petcock to face any other way than down and left was a problem. It was fine originally. Ended up cutting a thin sliver off a piece of 3/8" ID fuel hose and slipping it over the petcock then screwing it in. It was snug over the threads, and it looks like a nice seal. No drips, anyway. So, tank back on I threw some juice in it and ripped up and down the lane a bit. The drip at the exhaust port is still there, so I pulled the pipe and replaced the gasket. Another run up and down an it seems to be better now, but it'll need a longer ride to be sure.


Any day that starts with a good ride is already a better day, and a bad day riding still beats a good day working.
