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

Car mechanics are evil. I think the motorized bicycles will be more popular soon, for the working joe with a short commute. Yeah, Nissan really crams things together under the hood. No fun. I looked all over for the starter on a 90s
Sentra, found it on top and back of the engine. hahahha.

Took about an hour and a half to replace both sensors. The dealer wanted $300 to replace just the crank sensor ---- I think "not from me".....

Seems about right.
The crank sensor on my Ram is between the transmission and the oil filter on the engine, passenger side. You can barely see it and you can't get to it. Fun thing is, that when they fail, they cause all sorts of weird stuff to happen.

Dodge dude, I hope you're not using the Bell chain on your motor drive. I tried that as a temporary chain while I waited on a parts order, and it snapped in a few miles!

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

Sat looking at, Stood, Bent Over the boxes of parts for my build. Years of frustration at work of not having all the parts and pieces for a project are no more. I'm retired and no bosses to goad me on so I look busy earning my wages.

When they are all here I start. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh the joy of my time being my own.

Rode that son of a gun! Got off work early, rode two miles to the nearest river access, and reeelaxed. Alls well...

Install a rear rack and air filter, I took a ride and rode well but when I stop the engine turns off, adjust the needles and stay on but if I keep it on, do not run well.

Had I paid closer attention when reading the question, I wouldn't have had to edit my response.
