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

Well the other day I posted the wheel and sprocket I had put together for a replacement on one of my bikes. My son has been riding the crap out of this bike with a bent wheel and loose chain. Today the chain came off and the nice big fat copper two ton air filter broke off and was no where to be found.

So now the bike has the new rear wheel and a new carb installed, it sure runs good and fast.

The kid needs to go to trade school or build his own bike…

After taking the old wheel off and removing the MM adapter the pictures show that it may have been moving…good reason why I was breaking spokes.


Good reason for the Sportsman adapter....

i have got a ptototype of pats hub adapter and it moved a bit the first day after install but after settling and re tighten it hasnt moved at all and i got close to 150 miles on it and it only has 3/4" mounting bracket not the final 7/8" for the production run. cnt wait to get another one for my next build here soon. wouldnt buy anything else as far as a hub adapter goes.

it was prob a bit loose. i've never had one move on me. I met chainmaker and we fabbed and welded his motor mounts for his hf 2.5 and ez drive. we think he needs to pull the drive side spokes out further because we couldnt get the pulleys to line up he went with a belt drive setup.

I mocked up a new tank for a mini keg build but I'm not sure if it's been done before. I haven't searched for threads on this subject yet either.

think i might have a headgasket leaky thing going on. bike acts like it's got an air leak. but i have the intake pipe coated in gasket sealer anywhere that it could possibly have a leak.

just now pulled the head and jug off, sanded them true. put it back together, seems to run a little better now. (gonna see if i got a spare headgasket laying around)

i torque mine to 20ft-lbs. even though it's recommended at 15ft-lbs. really i blame the muffler. had to take my custom pipe off cause it was rattling alot, back pressure really kills my motor.

expansion pipe should be here in about an hour or so. mail man usually comes around noon to 1:45.

MAIL MAN
Y-U-NO COME SOONER???

lol

Wow, 20. I do around 12. (NOT SUGGESTING THIS TO ANY ONE, just what I do)

Drives ya nutz, eh? Almost always never one or simple thing. I really think that is part of the fun. The joy of problem solving and getting her happy. Is like marriage but you can ride your bike in public.

LMAO! wow dan, was not expecting that from you. XD

also found a neat way to tell if the head gasket has a small leak, take some gasket maker and put it around the head gasket, then go ride it right after (don't let it dry) for maybe 5 minutes or so. then check the head, you'll see bubbles where it's leaking.
