Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?
Well, the exhaust isn't quite complete --- yet. Gonna have to get a new exhaust gasket (3 or 4 probably), and a clamp to replace the wire support at the rear. I did MAPP gas the welds -- ran it about 30 minutes and all seems OK, so far. It was quite a bit louder than I was expecting, so I'll try some steel wool in the muffler.
Maybe because it's now louder, but the motor seems to have 'woken up'! It pulls harder on acceleration and feels more 'comfortable' at cruising speeds. I guess that time will tell how it'll hold up. For now, though, I'm satisfied with the results.
You're never lost until you run outa gas.
