Re: An install Kit for the Schwinn Jaguar
Episode IV the Idler Pulley Stikes Back.....
it has been a long expected lull in the motorized bicycle republic as the Dark forces of the empire conspire against the MB-Monkey to keep him from finishing his Jag build; however, now the time has come to battle against the Evil Empire. I added the CDI to the Jag Down tube and wired up the mag to the cdi with the included high grade connectors from the Manic Mechanic. Next i removed the clutch actuator cover and installed the chain to the bike. I was able to remove 2 links for the stock cahin length to get the desired length.
Next I added the Idler pulley. Contrary to the title this went perfect as the MM kit was designed for this bike. Installed the pulley with the suppley allan head bolts and the chain tention looks great on the 42 tooth rear sprocket.
I hooked up the throttle cable and the clutch cable. The clutch actuator took a small amount of tuning to get the sweet spot but only a couple of trials and the movment was great.
Finally its ready... the gas tank is mounted the fuel line is run and the in-line filter is in place. Tonight when i Get home from work I should be ready to fire it up. The plan was to have it running for the Fourth of July however alcohol, fireworks, and building motorized bicycles just wasn't a good combination but I did finish the bike on Sunday so close to being back on the road again..... Stay tuned.
Ride it like you stole
