Nice engine there 2239968, what you gonna put it on? Anyway, today I gave my bike a complete tuneup. Cleaned the carb, adjusted cables, cleaned/greased chain, cleaned/greased clutch gears, cleaned/greased pedal chain, adjusted clutch, put cardboard in the clutch cover, glued mousepad to outside of clutch cover, mixed gas, filled tank, steel wooled any rust i found on anything, etcetc. Hopefully my morning test drive shall yield smoother, quieter, and maybe even stronger operation.

I ride home after work on unlit country roads so I went to the dollar store and loaded up on LED flashlights and AAA batteries. Then I duct taped them to my helmet. The whole thing looks like a really bad spaceman costume but it puts out a lot of light.
The headlight only lights where your bike is headed but a helmet light points where you are thinking of riding. I can look to my right to see if I have any pavement over there.
Makes the ride safer and less stressful.

It will go on a boxer mountain frame first. Then once spring comes around it will go on one of Dan Orabona's Board Tracker frames.

How hard is it to mount a morini?

My muffler endcap came off so a made a new one. Used a small spray shoe cleaner can with the aerosol tip side cut off. Drilled a 1 cm hole in the center of the remaining side, with smaller 1mm maybe 2mm holes surrounding it. Maybe 8 little holes plus the big one. I call it the 8+1 endcap. Slid it over the muffler and hose clamp, very tight. Works great, I can now climb hills with no pedal assist that i needed to before, and it starts going much better. Also the exhaust note is awesome. The longer the can is sticking out from pipe the deeper it sounds(no clue why, someone educate me).
