scratching my head trying to figure out why my clutch keeps seizing up.

running the 3100rpm spring on the maxtorque clutch. thinking i'm gonna pull the snap ring that holds the shoes together and go to ace to get a new one, it might be stretching or something and slipping out.

How perfectly rude of that tree! Comming down like that without warning... and not a single tree hugger under it... HARHARHAR, THAT will catch some flak no doubt.
Actually I had some pleasant runs today without any issues- my carb float (NT carb) had some isues with flooding- I resolved it with (of all things) GREY PVC cement as I had learned that;
1) Gasoline does NOT affect PVC or its' glue and
2) GREY PVC cement cures HARDER than the WHITE PVC
I will let you know when that fails-

Went out to the shop to do something, anything, to my bike and realized I'M FINISHED. I cant think of anything else I wanted to do to my bike. Yeah, yeah. I know. Give it a couple weeks and I'll think of some other gizmo to ad to her...... Oh yeah, I gotta put a speedo on her, I guess it didn't take a couple weeks after all.

I almost hate that when that happens. Can't find nothing else to fix that's part of the fun lol. Then it's mandatory to have to park it next to the T.V. at night after work and stare at it

changed out my seatpost, adjusted my seat so i wasnt so far forward, raised the seat up a little bit, put some exhaust putty on my header, fixed my kickstand with loctite, turned the bolt around that holds my brake light to my luggage rack, went for a couple test rides, everything is about as good as its going to get. may lower my handlebars about an inch tomorrow for a more comfortable riding position.

On my way to work this morning, I ran over and killed a squirrel. It made me sad.
