Default Re: what did you do to your motorized bicycle today?

Replaced a broken clutch lever. The button had popped out of the old one.
Got one this time that is the full length for an easier pull. I soldiered the button part that holds it together this time. Also removed the return spring. Very smooth now!
Then I added a drive side chain guard so my jeans won't get sucked into the gears! The one that comes with the kit broke during its first week of life when I first got the kit almost two years ago.
I built it out of a piece of angle metal that came with something I bought years ago. Most people would have thrown it out, but I knew I'd eventually find a use for it!
Then I changed the pedals for a set that I like better.
It was almost 60 degrees here this afternoon, so I for to enjoy a ride for a little while after work. Running good!
