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

so a little back story the other day i took my clutch cover off the seal was leaking so there was oily gas in the case i drained it and felt lazy so i put the cover back on to work on it later but heres the thing my gasket broke so i just put the cover on anyway i thought it will be just fine but the clutch rubbed the case causing a very fine aluminum dust to get everywhere and the clutch was slippin very badly

so today i took eveything apart under the clutch case replaced the seal for crank took clutch pucks out sanded both sides and cleaned everything off when i went to start i was supprised at how quikly it turned over started right away

i also put better studs on the rear mount and tightened air intake manifold down it vibrated loose somhow

every thiong is running good now

i found out that the 60second epoxy they sell at auto stores works great at sealing the carb too.

put some of it on today just out of curiosity. set quick and even after a good hour or so of riding it just got to a slightly squishy, but still gripped great.

also i think my float needs adjustment, seemed to be overflowing a little today as well

Built a taillight array for the back of my pannier rack to go underneath the M-wave topcase I put on it. That turned out real well. Prolubed the chains on both my bikes. I'm going to dedicate tomorrow trying to get my 2010 66cc GT5 to run half as good as my 2010 48cc GT2 does. It thinks it's a 4 stroke.

Ordered heavier clutch springs for my Grubee Stage-III centrifugal clutch. I'd like to get the stall speed up to around 2500rpm if I can.

interesting... you don't need to pedal it at all when you go to start moving right? (just pull start to start the engine)

I usually push off, add a little throttle, swing a leg over and pedal a few times to get going. But with more engine rpms before the clutch engages I think the Honda GXH50 will be right on the pipe. I'll have to see.
