probably just a tiny amount of j-b weld and it'll be set... but then again, i do kinda want that billet manifold for it...

exactly, the thread over on the car club i'm on like this has something like 11,000 replies already (although the thread as been going for about 8 years)

thinking i may take the filter from the cns, and hack it up for more airflow

Cool. Or as the kids say now-a-days, Kool

I have done some experimenting with the HF, 4 smokes and their filter covers. Forgot to keep stats or numbers, but did add a bit of umph.

this one is with no cover other then chicken or hardware wire



I have yet to ride with this one but is with the cover and a hole cut out directly over the carb inlet of it using just a hole saw.
Dang, phone died and pic didn't send to email. Want to try a scoop sort of thing next. I really should get RPM and speed #s. Was more worried about looks and didn't think of it.

So as to be OnT, thats what I did to my motorized bicycle Saturday morning, lol. Sunday played with a welder. (brandy new and man is that a fun implement of construction!) Made a really cool muffler and mounted a new HF. I had blown the last one up as an experiment as to how much abuse they can take. A surprisingly lot. Worked on a multi-speed tranny. Actually, a pretty awesome whole week-end of motorized bicycle fun.

I made a truing stand out of an old set of forks and a set of cruiser bars. I'm thinking once I put a washer behind the old calipers, I can 'move them in place' so I have good reference points...

Commuted to work on my 4 stroke 35cc Subaru Staton Inside Drive, as I do every day, four hilly miles each way. Someone stole my bike lights yesterday, so went to Malwart and bought a Schwinn Xenon light. Surprisingly bright.

Damn I hate people who can't keep thier hands off our bikes. Had a mirror stolen from my bike the day I bought it! right infront of a major store too. Also on other rides found my horn, Fuel shutoff and choke messed with. I need a sticker on my gas tank "I don't touch your car, Don't touch my bike."

found out some a** decided to loosen 2 out of three clutch cover screws on it. i'm about halfway home and realize that my clutch won't disengage anymore, made it very difficult to start riding the bike.
