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

Killed my first magneto today, it confused me at first because the bike ran great, I stopped because the tank had shifted, then I couldn't get it running again.

Make sure choke was off, line had gas, I was so sad. Pushed her up the steep hill home, tired after working, drenched in sweat.

After I got some sleep I dragged her outfit, checked the carburetor, line, made sure everything was tight. Then I replaced the spark plug and the magneto.

I said a prayer, and praise jesus she started right up.

I put the ngk plug back on and it still fired up, so my plug is good.

Used my spare magneto, so I ordered another.

Also, anyone looking for tank mounts for wide top tubes, I found some conduit straps that look exactly like the $6.99 plus shipping, brackets I bought from bikeberry (this is before I heard they were the devil)

I cracked the original bracket when I bent it to fit, been holding until last night.
