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

On a ride to the store last night my chain almost skipped off the sprocket! So, I pulled a full link segment, as there was way too much slack with the new tensioner. Now it's looking good! I also put the pulley on the tensioner on the other side and reversed the brackets, so it's able to guide the chain on the sprocket, but without the angle.

Very pleased with my new chain breaker - it's designed for 520, but works well enough to punch a pin out halfway, then I can use my standard bike chain breaker to push it through the rest of the way.

Not much... Cleaned up my "garage" area in preparation for my new engine. Gonna pull pull the piston, put the jug on and take pics for you guys. Then pull the clutch, throttle, motor and wait for UPS. I'm tired of pedaling my wife's 26"

Has anyone noticed after having motorized that you tend to pedal around faster?? Its like i cant pedal slow... and i shift MUCH better.

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

OK- I took the slant 50 out again today- as I mentioned two pages back- it was bogging down a little the last couple of miles the day before-

I pulled the plug- looked a little bit oily- been running oily for breakin

so I took it over to the convenience store and added $.50 of mid-grade gas (1/8 gallon)
and no more oil-

It ran great all the way today- better than ever- so I don't think I'll be worying over any new carb soon
