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

As I stated elsewhere I finally learned how to adjust the Sturmey-Archer tranny I use for a jackshaft. I had only been getting low and 2nd. The bike shop guy told me the shift chain moves 1/2". Mine was moving 3/8" because the axle was shifted to the right side limiting the travel of the shift bar in the axle slot. As soon as it quits raining and I repair the cable it should be AWESOME. It is geared pretty high with balls of torque and acceleration from 6-1/2 HP so may have to go to a bigger rear sprocket. It ran in the mid 50's with 2nd gear.
