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

would need to see a photo,in order to better understand where it broke.
i broke mine a couple months ago.
perhaps a chunk got caught in the magnet and sheared the woodruff key.
doesent cost anything to look.
if you took the magnet off and installed it backwards.

That's High Temp Copper RTV. Was no biggie, didn't have to split the case at least. Only took about an hour to pull the jug, stamp an imprint for the new gasket, cut it, rtv it and slap it all back together. Ran like new again. It didn't want to idle, and after a new intake gasket and an o-ring in the carb, there was only one option left. (before having to split the case...) *phew!

Johnny, it sounds like you have your mag on backwards. They only go on one way eh... well, they'll go on backwards, but will backfire like crazy... there's only one proper way they go on

And sometimes the woodruff key will only half shear, leaving the timing slightly off. So, sheared key or mag on backwards. Check them both out.

Took the carb off my trike, AGAIN, to blow it out. I put a different tank on it last week and thought I cleaned it out. Guess I didn't clean it out good enough. Then took it around the block for a test ride, Runs great. And, Oh yeah, I put a filter on it this time. I THINK that should do it. Now all I gotta do is fix the flat on my Cranbrook. I've been meaning to spacer out my hub adapter a little more anyway, want to get the chain just a LITTLE further away from the tire, so this would be the perfect time to do it. But thats TOMORROW.

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

been doing a lot with the bike lately, trying to get it looking the way I want. painting, installing new fork, switching handlebars, all kinds of stuff. today, I rigged up a new kickstand extension with a couple hose clamps and a piece of bent aluminum, installed my left side mirror (right one was installed a few days ago, but didnt have a clamp for the left one), and installed a switch on my handlebars that will control my new headlight when i get it. ordered the headlight last night, so when i get it, all i gotta do is mount it and wire it to the switch and its good to go. bike is turning out quite nicely.

Well, Fixed my flat on the Cranny and spaced out the hub adapter. Took it for a test ride downtown. By the time I got to Micky D's I was so happy that the chain stayed on and was not slapping the tire I decided to celebrate with a Big Mac and fries. All in all, a good day.

Nothing but got teased by the man in brown today. Was working in the yard when the UPS truck stopped down the street and made a delivery. The driver jumped back in the truck and started up the road in my direction then stopped in front of my house. Only thing I have on order is a Felt Abraham Linkage fork which has been on back order for two months. Driver shuts off the engine and checks his list. I'm feeling pretty geeked at this point! Nope. Starts the engine and drives away while crushing my hopes. Feh.

If you don't have tracking/insurance, someone at UPS got a new fork.
