That reminds me... I need to make the brakes work on my bike before I get it running again ...

I sent them a very nice email asking if they could send me the older style CNS carb. We'll see what happens...

Picked a beautiful day for a ride
Headed out about 3 blocks from home and broke, mangled and shredded
right side jackshaft chain.....
I said quite many bad words pushing my bike home.
We aren't friends anymore today.

At least you were only 3 blocks from home... I've been 6 miles from home and had the chain lock up in the rear wheel, bend/break spokes, and somehow jam in the sprocket on the engine. And crack the cover... I couldn't even push it home because everything was so bound up.

Ported out intake manifold as fare as I could, wasn't enough so I cut a 1/8 in. aluminum spacer and made up the difference works well. A little power here a little power their it adds up!

chrisme


get on ebay, find BGF and order an old style NT type carb. tune it to your engine set up and basically forget it once it is tuned, these are great carbs. very simple and very little to go wrong with them, I have one of the older CNS carbs. brand new still in the box and I'm not sure if I will ever run it or not, CNS is short for "Constant Nagging Situation" from what I have read from most users, Now I didnt say all, because I know there are some who like them and have had good luck with them, I have not run one yet so I cant speak from experience if they are good or bad.

The plain old NT is all I need for my bikes, they all run great after some simple tuning on the carb.

Peace

Good thing you corrected that Goat Herder I was just fix-in to rib you a little on that one and reply with "Oh...No....! Not the dreaded 40 lies......."

But you beat me and got to the edit button before I could get it posted..LOL!

Hey man thats a good ride, been a good while since I went over 32 miles round trip, I really enjoy the mini trips like that, it not all that mini on a bike though...... but very enjoyable, I think.......


Peace fellow MB'er

Weather here sucks today so I made some changes to the exhaust. cut up an old pair of handlebars and routed the "new" exhaust between the pedal chain crank and the bottom of the motor. Really tight clearances but passes. Lights are working, Not bad for a couple of modified flashlights from Wally World. I just need rain to stop now.

Not much left to do until the tank is done. I tinkered with the throttle action until it was smooth as glass. Checked all my bolts & wiring. And I mounted my little round chrome mirror. With the angle the handlebars are at on the Higgins, I get a better view behind me than was possible on the old Tempus. On the old one, nothing I could do, my arms were always in my own way.

This Higgins, she'll be a sweet ride.
