Thanks Killer, I think I'm getting a little too old to keep falling down like that. Maybe a 20 or 30 point inspection.
The plastic bags are a GREAT idea.

And Rob, I never use bushings ANYWHERE in my engines. They don't "spin" properly and take the beating all in one spot. I've never heard of anyone modifying a bearing that way. It'll work till it don't, But that goes for any part. Get back to us in a month or so and let us know how it worked out.

fatdaddy,
That's why I have gone to riding on three wheels. No more jumping up saying I'm alright, it just a scratch when large pieces of skin are missing..
Now it would be lying there hoping someone called 911 and they were on thier way.

Glad you made it out of the wreck okay and hope you are healing up quickly.

Steve.

Thanks bro, I was just feeling a little better from my first dump, (my fault,) then did it again, (sabotage I think.)
I do have a three wheeler. It's a recumbent tadpole trike. The top speed is just under 30mph and my two wheeler does 35mph, so if I'm going a distance I ride my big bike. The 3 wheeler rides real low so traffic has a hard time seeing me. I put a light on top of a pole with a flag and a tail light flasher high on the pole to help, but it's still dangerous to ride. FUN AS H*LL, but dangerous. I'll try a pic of it to show you. Hope it comes out right.

Did some stuff to the carb yesterday. Played with the float some more, set the e-clip to the middle position, and pulled the bowl vent tube.

Pulling the vent seems to have made the biggest difference, I didn't have enough daylight left for a ride but I took it down the street and it seems I don't have to use my choke anymore to get up to speed.

w00t!

How do you have your exhaust mounted? I am afraid to take mine off road since my exhaust is currently hanging out...

I actually need to tighten it up, I just hope I haven't messed up the studs. I will likely get a strap for it today (finally).

Also, it sounds like your clutch is slipping a bit.
