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

I took my gearbox cover off and adjusted my primary drive chain tension again. The clutch will slip if the chain is loose. I put everything back together and tightened it down. I was looking my back wheel over and trying to decide if I needed to adjust it at all, when I discovered a spoke that had popped loose from the flange on the hub. This definitely explains the problems I've been having with it. I never did figure out why the wheel was wiggling, no matter how I would adjust it. Now I know why. Luckily, I just ordered a replacement wheel from Huffy. Why Huffy? Because its the only wheel I know for sure will accept the sprocket adapter I have, the Howard adapter which was designed specifically for the Cranbrook wheel. The unfortunate aspect is that the wheel is coming UPS from Cali, and is going to take about a week to reach me on the East Coast.
