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

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.
Looks good, looks good. I'd watch the exhaust on the rack though, plastic + hot exhaust = melted rack. lol

I'd love to do something like that for my exhaust, but I don't wanna cut up my existing pipe. lol
You got a pocket bike muffler on it? I bet it sounds bossly.
What nuts do you have? I bought some according to the little screw-in chart thing at Lowes and they don't fit and they aren't as big as yours....I wanna get rid of the acorn nuts.
