Yep, amazing difference greasing those gears up.
I cut a piece of cardboard that fits inside the clutch cover. Free way to reduce noise by a serious amount.

When you're greasing it up, don't forget to pull off the sprocket cover, pull out the rod and bearing and put some grease in there too!!

This is the second time I greased. I use white lithium which comes in a little "toothpaste" type tube. I squeeze out a tiny dab (about the size of a BB) on my finger and apply to the big gear and rotate and repeat about 6 times with the sparkplug out. Then spin it a couple of wheel spins to distribute and it works real good. There wasn't a lot of splatter on the cover when I took it off.

I got my new sparkplug, bringing up the heat from a BR7HS to a BR5HS.

Popped by Wally World on the way home, and found a marine fuel connector setup (male and female for 3 bucks a piece).

So, now I'm going to connect it up into my gas can for a cheap gallon tank. Only thing is I need to fab up a cage for my luggage rack so I can securely mount it.

When I had my bike running, once a week I'd just put a little BB sized dab on the gear. You don't want too much in there. I think I used wheel bearing grease. But just because that's what I have.

I'll lean the carburetor and crimp the muffler stinger for the right back presser in the morning.

No I dont guess I will see it then, I wont be at willow springs but I would really enjoy being there I'm sure.......

In the future if you do get a camera I would still liek to see what you have done, sounds like some very good work......

Be careful on that thing if it runs that good......

Peace

Started chopping and welding an old motorcycle engine guard to create a new exhaust system. So far I have the cylinder flange fabbed and match ported, cut the engine guard in two to give it the correct twist, and welded up the whole mess. A good start for a header. I plan on having the exhaust exit out the right side of the bike. It will cross over right behind the seat tube and come out between the pedal chain and chain guard.
