Wrap string around the threads, then retighten. It'll probably hold until you get another one....

Orrrr drill and tap the pedal's end, tighten it on. Then place a washer larger than the arm's hole and tighten a bolt into the threaded end of the pedal.

Replaced the Meow Stack with a real performance air filter from Pirate, breathes good.

tried once again to get my carb running.

turns out i didn't have the float in upside down (as it can only go in one way) so now i got no clue what's wrong with it. (f-ing CNS carb) just gonna order a NT carb and be happy with it.

Got a new sparkplug, Riped the boot off cause I could'nt find a replacement yet, wraped the wire under the little sparkplug 'cap' as a nut, fiddled with the C clip on the needle, decided to try fiddling with the carb hoses and such.

Fixing up the headlight to make it brighter, 'cause I stacked my bike 5 weeks ago in a dark stretch of cycleway, and got a plate put into my wrist. Have had my hand in a cast for 4 weeks now, another 1-2 weeks to go!

did some small adjustments to it, took the rim brake off the rear wheel and put it on the front. turns out the front one was twisted so it wasn't braking correctly.

also cleaned up the cables a little so it's not so cluttered and crazy.
thinking i might get also get this too
