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

See if you can find this product. It is about $2-8 in USA, at Walmarts. It goes in Maglite. If you use with a 6v lantern battery, pay attention to the polarity of the bulb. It must not be reversed or it won't work and might destroy the bulb. I have one for my fishing light (3 D maglite) it runs hours to all day, and casts a long bright-white beam that doesn't disturb wildlife too badly. Some fish are attracted to it.

I have been doing quite a bit of maintenance over the last couple weeks. Maintenance on the bike got neglected over the winter due to the fact that I dont have a garage at my new house. So nothing really got done on the bike this winter unless it was absolutely necessary. Today I cleaned and regapped my spark plug, loosened my clutch cable (I had made it too tight a couple days ago), and greased my bucking bar and my engine gears. I greased the bucking bar because when pushing the bike I had heard a squeaking. After greasing everything I discovered that it was just my new brake pads rubbing my rim a bit.

Had an interesting afternoon. While in the middle of a newport rebuild(basketcase off Kijijji), another bike I built came back running like crap and backfiring.

So while fighting that this aft, pulled the rotor first but the shear key was fine(first thing to think of when backfiring), or someone monkey'd with it and put on wrong... changed out the cdi(no go), changed mag(no go)... finally looked in the tank and the gas was black. Gah! It was like tar(almost)...

So yea, if someone else is having troubles, check what they put in the tank first and save three hours. I drained the tar out of the tank and bowl, put in my 32:1 and it fired right up.

Some people's kids.

Too windy to ride today anyways.

Keep your miscellaneous parts, and keep your parts miscellaneous.

KillerCanuck, what turned your gas black? Mold? Dirt? Paint? Bad gas? That's strange!

Gas Ridez, if you want to hack a Maglite, I tried it. The old ones have tabs you can bend and solder to or use slide-on connectors. The new ones don't, and you can't solder to the spring or the case. Maybe you could make a spacer to replace the batteries, from PVC, JB putty, and screws, then run the wire out through a grommet, and bond the flashlight to a bracket.

Sorry I wasn't so clear. The standard maglite with 4 D batteries runs literally for a day or more with the LED.

The LED bulb won't work in lantern flashlights unless you modify them. The polarity is wrong for the LED.

That led conversion bulb's a good idea.

Removed the front light as I'm awaiting a handlebar mount type and rode the bike around for a bit. It's running pretty well, actually the best it has ran in a while but still 4-stroking a bit at wot. I'm thinking about changing out the jet to a 0.68 that I purchased a while back.

Found that by when braking on the entry to a corner if I begin to accelerate then come off the brakes and go wot that it is pretty hard to make the corner without running wide but when ya get it right f-!& me it's quick. Good luck to ya if ya tryin to catch me in a car in the suburbs

Gotta spend some time on my tacho apparently I'm only getting up to 5500rpm at top speed
