My grips came lose and I dont have anymore grip lock so I used some safety wire or mechanics wire to get them nice and snug on the handlebars.

climbing steel towers all day would destroy them in a coupla weeks, so another trick i used was to buy those cheap brown gloves from 7-11 or liquor stores for like 2.99, (like these: Gloves - Buckhorn Industrial, Inc.) and wear them over the thinner warm water gloves.

sport chalet, REI, and other big sporting goods stores usually have a good selection.

Finally a glove Idea I will try!! I have road through every winter there was here. I have had good luck with mechanic gloves and another glove on top. This is the hardest thing I ever solved. A guy stuck on a tower above the Earth with froze stiff hands would definitely look into the problem

Thanks! I will look into this! I have been meaning to try the Scuba gloves..

After Having leaks in the same place on two gas tanks, I used an epoxy compound to seal the leak called PC-7. Both tanks leaked where the studs met the tank. I also replaced the carb with a NT carb and installed my rear kick stand. I will give it a ride tomorrow and see if I can hit the 40 MPH mark. With previous carb, before the float connectors got bent, I was losing power at 34 MPH. Now that I have everything as I like it, I'm getting a little antsy. I just can't find anything else to buy for it. I would really like a light set that would have about 5-600 lumen without spending 500 bucks.

Cheers
Kelly

Had an awesome Sunday with her. Just sort of dusted and cleaned her up. Got a garden hose splitter so as to try both a real muffler vs the blow bag. Is amazing how much quieter the blow bag is. With the splitter, can open both outlets for free exhaust and partial muffle or go full muffler. Second pic is just muffler run st8 from pipe.

EMT/conduit, plumbing and hose parts work awesome for this mix an' matching. On and off by hand.

off topic alert. I never realized how much the muffler affects the way dogs react to a MB. Experimenting today with the rubber blow bag and splitter alone, dogs barely looked up at me going by. Just saying in case it would help any one who lives by nervous or angry dogs.
