How the below post relates: With a drill press you can do the work yourself drilling the washers being sure they are centered.

Without a dill press, if you have a Dremel Tool or the like, the grinder wheels as I mentioned below I save a couple of each of various sizes worn to different diameters, they can cut the hole in a washer as I have done. A cheap vice to go along with it I make parts whenever I like.

When I have for the largest bit only a 3/8" bit for my 3/8" chuck drill, although stepped bits are available, I resort to using the largest bit first followed by the grinder thin disks. If the metal is really thick, the cost in disks would not be worth it, but for washers, I have made 5/8" bore quite nicely.

Here is a post I made:

http://motorbicycling.com/showthread...176#post474176

FYI, I found that when using the Dremel cut off wheels, I stop using them at various levels of wear when I am cutting.

This allows me to have a couple of different diameter sizes so they fit where they otherwise would not. I intend to use them not so much as cutters when they are worn smaller diameter but as shapers. The solid grinders have too much surface area to shape quickly in a small area I have found usually.

It has helped me out many times over. I have to switch wheels, but they seem to allow carving more smooth than the metal cutter.

I know the metal cutters have there use, but I am partial to those grinder wheels even though they wear way faster.

I was going to mention that somewhere myself.. I recently had a small job that the 'left over' wheels made easy and a full size just wouldn't have fit or done the job well if it had.

Casting broke at the carb neck.

I think it was weak since the clamping part at the intake was almost completely closed.
Hit too many hard bumps at 35 mph down hill (like a boss) and it goes snap.


Couldn't figure out why it fell off twice.

Man I wish I could take the beast down the local concrete bike/walk path. It's got lots of tight twists and turns. But I would be afraid of getting stopped by the cops and being made to ride back under pedal power. Ugh. lol
Either way, since the bike is down at the moment, the engine is going to be ripped out, cleaned up, and I'm gonna get some work done to smooth it out a bit.

Should be fun.

Good thing about this tow path is the cops cant get to it very easy,,there is a canal between the road and the path and miles before an entry way,,guess they could wait for me at the end,,by then I would be back to my truck so no pedaling...lol..I do most of my riding over in PA.its right across the bridge from me..they seem alot cooler over there,,I have not had any problem with the cops around here yet,,but I just creep around 18-20 MPH and obey all the traffic rules.I really enjoy riding at night also,,feels like your going so much faster in the dark
