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

i ended up taking the CVT off, since not only was the belt too long, but i was getting belt dust everywhere.

thankfully i did get a maxtorque clutch in the mail on monday. so i swapped that on. put a #41 chain on it, and took it for a ride.

it pulls really hard still, it's got a final ratio of 9.97:1 so top speed will be about 37.3mph.

got a 48t and a 24t sprockets coming in tomorrow and have a spare 10t sprocket. putting all that on should net me an 8:1 ratio

i may order some other sprockets from mcmaster to get the ratio in at 8.35-8.5:1

Wow, that's just a whole truckload of awesome. A sewing bobbin as a clutch cable pulley? Cool! I like the "hey it's on" headlight. Is that to keep ya legal, or are you actually getting any light out of it? If you use a NiteIze LED for maglite, you might get some battery time and maybe some useable light (15mph or so). LED lights play tricks on the eyes!

I've got a mining headlamp double taped on a bike helmet, for a helmet light. (Coast makes them, a couple other brands make them, about $40-80 for serious ones with electronic boards and LED lights).

Well, I've stepped in it now: I'm making a new custom aluminum tank. I've brushed up on my skills with the Alumaweld. I've already made the wooden form. So tonight, I've begun cutting metal.
I don't think I'll be posting many pics. I've been getting in the zone, and the camera tends to take a back seat at times like those. But, more importantly, I'm just following most of the methods and techniques that Tinsmith outlined in that wonderful tutorial he posted on this forum. So I think anybody who wanted to learn how to build a custom tank from solderable or brazeable metal (i.e. brass, copper, aluminum, tin) would learn more from him and others who've done so than they'd learn from me.
Therefore, let me say thanks to Dan the Tinsmith! You put me on the road to a better custom tank, just by showing me the best way to go about it (other than paying somebody).

I'm making a new boost bottle. My other one is unusable (tube got snapped off it).
This one is metal. PS it worked really well.

gave it a kick in the guts last night and it was idleing on thereabouts 2750rpm cold with the choke on... sounds about right.
Yet to have a thrash around and see if its any good or not it was only a cheapy.
