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

I took off my black punisher looking air cleaner & Installed an 1" PVC STREET 90 W/ a short piece of pipe and another 90 and let me tell you the sound is so much deeper "I never expected that" and I gained "no BS" a good 5 - 8 mph top end ' Now if i can finds a way to keep the fuel bowl full of fuel ... it keeps drawing down now that I have more air

OH YEA and my motor kit came that my brother bought and I built this last night

Are you sure you're not marking your territory too? LOL!
I carry my wallet in my front pocket as well. When I used to carry it in my back pocket, I found I got more backaches after sitting down for long periods.

That's the first thing a chiropractor asked me. What do you keep in your back pockets? Wallet in one and change in the other, why.

I put them in my front pockets and had a half dozen treatments and I was great for years.

Who would have thought about that causing pain.

Steve.

Pipe sheared off on the beater/tow bike earlier. Was able to find it in the weeds still hot though

It seems true. When I got a performance air cleaner from Sick Bike Parts and mounted it on mine - OH, that engine opened up and BREATHED! I have a tuna-fish can that I painted and covered it with, to keep it from getting too well covered in debris. But that turned out to be a major performance mod for me.
Before that, all I'd done was port-matching, VERY slight milling to the head, better NGK spark plug, tuning the carb, bigger inside-diameter copper fuel line, better gaskets,...the standard stuff.

Lol, I mounted a tuna can on my carb years ago. The carb stuck straight up and the vents on the canister-type air cleaner was topside. It worked to keep what little rain and crap there was. It made sense to install the can.

I saw that tuna can painted it looks awesome Al I studied your photos so much I think you mis labeled the CDI cover as an air scoop for your head light ..but I might be wrong am I? ..Did you do all your own paint work? If so what did you use to apply it and what s the best primer to use?
