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

I sent my brother to pick up my rear wheel from the bike shop after he dropped me off at work this morning. Got around to it around 6:30 this evening. It was a little bit of a pita getting everything back together. Have to take the hub apart, put the sprocket adapter and sprocket on, then service the hub and put it all back together, then of course put the tube and tire back on. Getting the tire to seat was the most tedious part. I started putting air it in twice and it wouldn't stay seated. Finally I figured to put a little air in at a time and squeeze the tire and push it onto the rim, and that worked. Put the wheel back on, put the chains on, etc. Centered the wheel and everything is solid again, so I'm extremely happy. It's very nice to have a solid wheel again, especially one that I laced myself. Even if I did have to have it trued at the bike shop. I took it for a test ride, and its nice and smooth again. The clutch doesn't even slip like it was before. So HAPPY!!!!! Lol.
