I personally think the Delorto SLA Clone is a better carburetor and at $69.95 with a plethora of jets and custom air filter from Piston Bikes a great alternative. I have over 500 miles on mine and not a problem yet, that and my Ultra High Density Clutch Pucks (on sale next week through Piston Bikes too...) LOL....

As we are running out of summer here, decided to put my Honda/4G drive on my daily rider. The engine is just awesome and never have a problem with it. I have yet to really test out the 4G but the little I did get to ride it, was purty awesome.

Waiting on a new belt. Got no clue what I did with the original one. But I am sure to find the old one about 3 minutes after the new $13+$11 shipping one arrives. Is the law, snicker.

I wasn't trying to be a "jackass", but I did learn my lesson (slow down and get it straight before hitting the gas). I went to get gas at that station today and looked. I didn't leave any scratch marks on the road, but there is an oil slick there, from where the cars hit a bump in the road coming through the intersection, and drip. Bet that is how come I slid so far. Oh well.
I think the stunt guy was doing 100+mph and drinking alcohol too.

re:
I think I like the 5 minute vid length better than a 10 min one, Happy...
...lol even with de-emphasis on the 'jackass' part! lol and THAT guy REALLY bought it, big time, in his porsche... idiot. some people just don't learn soon enough.

glad to hear you found a prob that can be resolved with your throttle.

I worked on a foam plug to make a between the bars gas tank that I will be making from kydex. Also bought 2 Bosch plugs for the motor.

Kydex seems good for knife and gun holsters, but seems pretty flexy for a gas tank. How does that work? Do you have thick plastic?

Ordered a jack shaft kit for the LA Cycles BigMo project. I'm going to be streching this bike and just don't want a 10-12 foot chain run. It comes with a 10 and 14 tooth gear and I already have a 12 and a 13. With a 50 tooth sprocket on the 20" tire and the Morini RPM I should be able to gear this right in the sweet spot for power.

Kydex comes in sheets I am trying .125, 1/8th inch to start with. It is impervious to gas and oil and is very durable and puncture resistant. I will be vacuuming forming the tank. I hope to have my prototype done by the end of the month. Just waiting on the kydex I ordered to come in and finishing the plug so it is smooth. I have been working with the kydex tech people and they say it should make a very good tank.
