Put a Briggs tube muffler inside my broken exhaust pipe. Used Tiger Patch wrapped around the Briggs tube to make it fit snugly, then drilled and put a bolt through the pipe to hold the tube muffler in. Sounds good, runs good, problem solved.

Where'd I ride to? Rode an abandoned railroad bed from Clarksville, IN to New Albany, IN, then rode along the Ohio River back to Clarksville, then back home to Jeffersonville, IN. Not to mention my trip to Sunday night church a couple miles up the road. It's fun having a China Girl as a daily driver . . .

Guy came over couple days ago. He'd been here before, we got his bike to going after he made contact with me here. He'd been back a few times, need ing this and that. This time it was a spring clip lock for the master link. Seems he was helping a friend on his build and it snapped. I just happened to have one for a Chinee chain. I'm switching to 41 chain on my bike so there was no problem with that.

I'll be getting back to what I was doing as soon as the new aircleaner gets here. Didn't want to have problems with clearance. I got the smallest K&N to fit the Dellorto I could find but I had to have it before making motor mounts. Now I can move ahead

I rode mine about 45-50 miles today, to do some farm work. I made the round trip (20-25mi each way) on less than 1/2 gallon of fuel. The US Plastics tank was great. I filled it up 90% before I left, and it never sloshed or spilled out of the cap. The ride was very stable and it was nice to just floor it the whole way without worrying about running out of gas.

I took a ride to my AAA office to pay for my truck tags & insurance. Talked to a guy that has a china girl, said he was going to the Venice ride on the 20th. From Riverside...

welp wasn't the connecting rod, or anything inside the engine for that matter. hhmm nothing to worry too much about i guess, just keep an eye on the drive train.

Rubber plumbing boot over carb or velocity stack, hose clamp or zip tie over big Ace bandage. Works great, lasts a long time, and it's washable or disposable. A $3 roll makes 15+ filters.

You can even lay out the new patches on a board and hit them with spray paint a little bit, still works well.

Had to take everything off because I put the donut pads on wrong. Put the 2 donuts on the rim on one side when your suppose to one inside the rim AND outside the rim. I didn't have to unscrew everything but everything needed to be loosened. DUH!
