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

there is one just for the cns, but the first order was a 'test' run that sold out before the order came...so expect more! But speed's are cheap, and can get you around. I'm just saying keep you eyes open for the billet cns style

yeah i'll hang on to my cns one and see if i can repair the clamp (since it's cracked now that i torqued it too much) it should still be usable, just will need to keep an eye on it.

but i am eager to try the speed carb since it's a much simpler design, but i don't like how the choke circuit is just a restrictive airflow baffle, and not an actual extra fuel line for it.

but then again i'm new to carb designs. (first time ever working on a carb)

edit: got board and took the rear hub apart to look at the bearings, still nice and clean from the factory grease, but i needed to take it apart anyway so i can take the axle to a shop and see if they have a cheap (not quality cheap) one that i can replace the bent one with...

after seeing a video of a bike with the shift kit i gotta say. I WANT!

Some times if you twist the throttle too hard and the cable adjustment is too tight.

Here shows that you can make your own cable

You need to ever so insanely carefuly cut about 3/8" of sheath off the cable from around the inner. Near damn impossable to do without nicking it. Dremel cutoff wheel can do it.... Maybe a bike shop can do it... There are posts on her about remaking the ends, So you could cut the cable, Remove it, cut the sheath, then put a new end on (need to cut sheath more to leave enough inner cable to cast a new end on, But stock throttle cables are usally too long anyway)

On the plus side, if you make it way to long as I did, your throttle grip is just loose for a little bit of the twist, You won't lose WOT (Wide open Throttle).

What end does your throttle brake at? Maybe you should make a new thread.

went working on it taking the tensioner off and going tensionerless. almost got it to work too. had to do some tweaking on it but had to hurry and bring it inside the garage when i saw some religious people going door to door in my neighborhood... (in a no soliciting neighborhood too :rage!!!: )

also think i figured out my sorta bogging after WOT issue... low on gas

i'm now tensionerless!

took a look at how some other people were doing it, and saw (forgot the username) had made a spring tensioner that fit between the drive sprocket cover/clutch arm cover. so i machined out just that cover piece and rode the bike, all it needed was something to prevent the chain from jumping off the drive sprocket.

also rebuilt the axle, but need to get a freewheel remover so i can pack some of the bearings better than i did.

also also! got gas and mixed up some 40:1 since the gas in the tank (and some in the can) had 24:1 so it should be around 34-ish:1 next fill will be 32:1 unless i can find some opti-2 or amsoil local then i'll run 80:1 at first then maybe 100:1.

and lowered the E-clip down to #2 (from #1) just to be safe while i'm running the different mix
