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

I've always hated that 'click' sound when I release the clutch lever lock. It just sounds...cheap. I took a 3/32" I.D. rubber 'O' ring and slipped it over the end of the pin, just behind the little washer on the inside of the clutch lever.
Now when I release the lock it has a much better sound. More precision than 'click'

Wow Tom. Clever, simple and cheap. Gonna try it. Thanks

Changed oil again. Has been 30 to 50F here and when I changed the oil. As soon as I replaced the 30W with 30W, temps dropped to 20s and stayed there. So now using 5W 30 as recommended. Did make a huge difference. Was stalling sitting at idle even after a long ride.

I stared at my favorite picture of Dave 31's picture of the Boxxer. Been planning in my head real hard about my next Morini project! This has been in the planning for me for a while tho..

Was googling for 10 gauge stainless spokes..all day and pricing parts. Going over the whole thing in my head..

That's a good simple Mod 2door

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

I went down at a semi slow speed going in a small circle the front wheel slid on a patch of green slime algae on the concrete, the bike seems to be kinda ok the tank has a couple of dents and the throttle leaver broke off, it was a clutch leaver I was using for the throttle. I hate the twist grip throttle and I liked having a throttle stop at 3/4 full I could keep going but rest both hands when needed it was nice. What sucks more is that all my other brake levers are the small size thread size adjusters and the throttle cable has the large thread size adjuster so now I have to either use the twist grip or go and buy a brake lever. But the part that scares me the most is that the motor seems slower afterwords but I can't see or hear anything wrong and I don't see any marks on the motor anywhere I hope when I get it back together again for the fifth time it runs as good a the first day I set up the new motor.

changed over from the 44tooth on the HD hub to the 36tooth. I now get to work a whole 5mins faster over a 24km ride.. WOW lol.
Just my thoughts are it isnt as much fun down low but it has the top speed back.
Nothing like wind dragging behind the trucks if your abit of a loose nut.hehe
The motor sounds the same at 38km/hr with the 44tooth as it does at 48km/hr with the 36tooth.
