Re: Finally! Hello
Thanks for the welcome and the suggestion! Last week, I ended up taking the front fender off completely because it indeed almost failed and turned into a ski.
The motor is pretty much broken in now. I'm still using a richer mix on it because I can't yet afford a new motor if this one busts.
My only complaint is that the exhaust is ridiculously loud at full tilt. Other than that, the bike has had zero issues and is going to be sorted out extensively in the next month or so as I slowly replace the hardware and add a few more goodies.
