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

I painted the new motor I got from BGF chevy orange was going with a black motor but got a silver one bye mistake so I went with it(life hands you lemons make lemonaid).I was going for a old school Can am bombidear dirt bike look,my freind had a can am 370 that was a monster.I am going to sand down the tips of the fins after the paint cures a bit,that should look cool.Now I will have to paint the rest of the bike then I am going to get a real tank for it.

I have done some other work to it I found a nice seat in the dump and put my suspention seat post on it.Next I swapped out the rear rim from a 26" to a 24" rim for more botom end.I also laced in a HD hub with a band brake.


This motor fired right up and runs a lot better than the one that was in it and way more power,hardly any vibration and I took the useless boost bottle off. It is my day off so I am going for a small put then going to stop and get some mixer for the last of my captain and kick my feet up .

Had a great day riding yesterday until I returned to hear that my home town, Joplin Missouri was devastated by a massive tornado. Since then I and my kids have been trying to contact friends and relatives to make sure they are safe. So far everyone is OK but several lost homes. Current death toll is 90. Please keep the people of Jopllin in your mind and if you have the means donate to the Red Cross. We will be leaving this afternoon to drive down. The devastation was huge...

got a pair of piston pin bushings in the mail. test fitted one on the grubee motor in my room. gonna put the other on the daemon motor that's on the bike tomorrow.

also need to do some figuring out on the expansion pipe since it's too long for the power band i'll be in (motor's gonna be hitting 8k now, so it'll need to be adjusted to suit that range). also may flip the jug around and see if i like it backward.

Thanks Frickard. I could also use this to wrap a portion of my pipe...the part that contacts my leg and gives me blisters.

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

HEAT SHRINK TUBING FOR MY WIRING ?

FEH! !


use GOOP instead! Flowed onto solder joints, overnight it becomes transparent HARD RUBBER (The same stuff re-badged is called SHOE GOO)

It is a great addition to the tool bag.

Overnight it with will fill and repair a hole in a tire. My right front on the Ranger had a 1/4" deep square hole that has been filled for 3 years.

It also can serve are a rubber bushing for where the wires come outa the engine and outa the Coil

It also can prevent any nut from drifting loose and unscrewing

It also can be used to prevent corrosion

I also applied clear Krylon aerosol lacquer to stop the rust on the cheapo Chinese HUFFY handlebars (and also on the cheapo Chinese gas tank)
In rainy Florida it is WORKING !

I put a new 415 chain on that I got from 2door. Thanks for the chain Tom, it is a huge difference from my old chain; nice and smooth.
