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

I took my brake pads off, and polished the brakes with a drill powered buffer. Jewelers Rouge makes them shine. I love mirror polished aluminum. If you keep your rims clean, unlike some of us Your bike will stop much better. Lube if you use it, from the drive chain will build up and no rear brake. I have found that "dragging your swampers" is a risky way to stop. Oh it's 74 and sunny in Houston.

lol Nunya & Saddle.

Cool avatar Skarrd. DIY?

Swapped out 44T rear sprocket for brandy new 50T. Is a BGF and polished side is well done and looks great! One of the rubber/rag parts has almost half missing over 2 bolt holes. (on the flat of it) took up space with washers but dunno. Think it will be a weak spot. Also the whole rag joint had much smaller diameter then any I have ever seen and the 3, 3rd metal plates did not join tight like any I have seen before. Will see. But over all, really like it. (is shiny, lol) The 56T chain was a lil sloppy fitting length wise. 44, perfect. This 50, lol. Have to pitch the engine. It is about 1/4 of a link out. Or 3/4 long. Just perfectly wrong so as neither a half or full link will reach right. Big snow storm tonight and tomorrow so have time to play.

Today I was muddling around in the storage unit...I mean garage.....and had to pick up the back wheel of my motorized bicycle to roll it out of my way.
Someday I will license it and I can ride it when I please.

went to my dealer today and picked up yet another head and piston as I wasnt too happy with how the other one I ported went. Played ping pong with him for abit and left. He follwed me up the motorway and gave me a nod for a speed shot. (id been bragging about how I could get his motors to do over 70km/hr and I weigh 220pounds and am 6'5) So gave it a good squirt didnt duck down or even tuck my legs in and topped out at 72km/hr by the time I got to the top of the very slight incline hill he was stoked showing me with his hands what my speed was.
I truelly think there was about another 6km/hr left in it before the crank jumped out and ran beside me but that was enough, the next bike is supposed to be the fast one so I'll just leave it for then.
Rode the rest of the way to work at about 50km/hr on just over a 1/4 throttle.
Jeez I love this bikes every free moment when I'm at work im either thinking about what I can do next to the bike or reading what other ppl are doing.
I trully am rediculously addicted GOD HELP ME!
