Default Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

well i woke up thi morning and smelled gasoline so i knew my bike was leaking i was so tired i jus put it out side (i dont have a petcock) i figured it was just a hose or something but when i fuled it up and went for spin it wouldnt start i think it was flooded

well anyway i needed to go to work so i pulled out my dads bike that was running perfectly fine before winter and tried to start it i couldnt i was dripping sweat after many attemps to start but had to get a ride for work very sad day

Just a thought WA. Sounded like ya had a rough one today and a lil head banging, make yer ears bleed loud motorized bicycle theme music always helps. Snork


Each one of my motorized bicycles sort of get an unofficial theme tune. I have found some songs just naturally play in my head for the personality of each MB.

Have a better one tomorrow!

rode all over on my trusty 24" to get parts for the souped-up 26."

came home, and got the new bike running. the mikuni needs to be tuned, but it started first try with no choke. yay!

I spent half an hour searching craigslist for a small engine to make a new build for my deceased MB... I guess that counts as working on it.

Thanks Dan. I had it coming... But I do miss the thing.

I blew the HT over the summer to the point of needing a total rebuild. So I'm going to go complete DIY and do my own build. I think after the experience I had with that, and the knowledge of people on here I can make something work!

ok so update on my motorized bicycle i was too lazy too pedal start my motor so i used a power drill and a socket on the mag bolt to turn eer over

it took a long time to start and the entire crank case was full of gas cause it all came spewing out but after a while i got it started then after about four or five minutes it died i went to check on it and the fuel was leaking ou the carb so i drained the tank completly took apart the carb and found nothing wrong the needle valve was seeling perfectly fine and the float was water proof so i put it back together and it stoped leaking

i didnt find anything inside so i assume condensation froze or something im gonna start putting heat in my fuel every tank full to protect from flooding

i didnt really have enough time to put it together before work so i bummed a ride

tommorow its supposed to be really windy out there i cant wait 0 degrees wind and then more wind from going fast

ohh i fogot to mention when i was starting my bike with a drill and had the mag cover off i noticed that the crank itself moves in and out easily by hand and moves about a 3/16 of an inch what could cause this bad bearing or has it been like this since day one
