Bolt sheared off my center kick stand. Looks like it was cranked off but have not tightened it in, dunno at least weeks and don't crank down on em all that much. I do put a lil umph in to em as it is a good sized bolt but nothing close to the force it would take.

So half the bolt is still in the lower and working on getting that out.

I destroyed my motor today, yee haww haha.Well not destroyed, but went to put the jug back on and broke the piston rings (well one). Gonna buy a BGF replacement motor and keep this one for the parts, not too bummed other than spending money I really don't have . I wanted to try my new RT carb today, but that's not gonna happen for another week I suppose.

Ya, but I don't have a ring compressor to do the job right. I'd have to buy that, rings and then the possibility of me messing more up. I'll keep the motor for extra's.

nah, use your fingers, just make sure they line up on the pins in the piston grooves:

Thanks, that solves some issues lol. I still have the problem of a piece of the piston ring fell down in to the crankcase, so that will have to be removed. I'm gonna buy a new motor still and work on this one. When were trying to fit it the ring just would not compress against piston it would always be sticking out at one spot, but I believe what you just linked me would fix that. thanks for the link.

It was so freaking hot today, who else took a shower outside today lol.

The morning ride started off well, then problems started. About 15 miles into our ride my son in laws right pedal gets loose and cross threads under pedaling pressure, we had alot of trouble getting it back on. Then about 5 miles later my friend with the del-mar broke a drive chain, so we make up a new chain and off we go. Due to time we only made 37 miles today. Things went wrong but it was still fun.
