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

Have not had a chance to ride for a week or so. Really didn't today but had to do a local store and bank run. Also sending Happy to Zuender in Germany tomorrow and wanted some pics.
But Man! 72F, slight breeze and just an awesome ride. One of them rides that should take 20 mins but turns into 2 hrs.
Put my drive chain back on 2ce. LOL, I really gotta fix that. Just not enough hrs in the day

Rode the bike the last couple of days and started the initial construction of a tool/CDI box. Not sure what I'll make it out of yet as I don't have a welder, perhaps a plastic material. Also, ordered a customer sprocket adapter from Manic and a 40T sprocket from Pirate.

Warmed the engine up with the NT on, and then put the CNS on. Hoping I'd have more luck starting with a warm engine.... NO!

It's a really steep hill out of my garage, and it couldn't even go up. So I pedaled to the road... Once I got going it scooted right along down the road. Still running weird though. I don't think it's sealing well and has an air leak. But then it'll go and run wicked rich and 4stroke to the point of completely stalling out. So I dunno. I tried a bunch of jets, bigger and smaller, different float levels, needles levels. It's a POS.
I'm usually really good at making carbs work.

So instead I spent an hour and tuned my NT. Runs amazingly well

As we say around here you're trying to make chicken salad out of chicken crap....thats the problem with that CNS carb, order the RT carb from Thats Dax and I'll bet you'll be happy, I have one I haven'yt used yet but I have PM'ed a coupel fellas who know their stuff on these engines and they said the RT carb is a winner and does real well once rejetted to the china girl....

Best wishes......

Peace

Thanks. I'll check that carb out if the NT gives me issues. This particular carb gave me horrible issues on my last build, but I think I figured out what was up.

I'm going to see if I can get my money back for the CNS.

I ordered up some Thai food from my favorite place down town. They said it would be ready in 10 minutes, but I would probably be longer as the streets were all shut down for the annual "wine stroll"

I said no problem, I'll be there.

Motored on up, pulled in the clutch and hit the kill switch as I rode thru the barricades and pedaled right up to the restaurant. Parked right up front too. Not like there were any cars out there -

The whole restaurant staff was drooling and asking...

Yeah Baby!

I added an electric hub motor to make it a hybrid.

Did more work on my new exhaust. Finally got the muffler securely attached to the right axle nut/ rear fender tabs. It took 2 rear drop outs and a heck of alot of cutting and shaping to total 5 separate parts all welded together. Tomorrow I should be able to finish up on the exhaust pipe. So far I have the header all welded up and the middle section of the exhaust tacked into place. Will post pics when it's all done.

I'm jealous. I've been wanting to do that for a while now!

What's the perks, how's it performing?
