Futzed around with it earlier. Played with the idle and idle air mixture screws. Better throttle response. Adjusted the clutch, removed the clutch cable return spring. Removed the exhaust cap (again). Currently, it sounds like half a v-twin. wum-wum-wum-wum-wum-wum Whip snap throttle response almost, too.

Gotta get a new carb for it tho. lol procrastination.

Wired a new toggle switch into my headlight, as the old one was messed up and the wires got pulled out when I was futzing around with my fork the other day. Charged my batteries for my lights, re-centered my rear wheel which wasn't quite aligned properly after I changed my tires yesterday. Everything is tip-top now, and all thats left is to replace my brake cable when it gets here and my throttle cable when I feel like it lol. Good thing its driveable though, wife is working now so she can't take me to work anymore.

added some fuel, and headed for town, ended up with a 36 mile round trip on the Huffy Karaoke by the time I was back home, nice ride even though it was around 100 in the shade here today.

looking at the bike I plan for my next build today and thinking of what I will do first when I get the time......

Kinda rough day and just had to get out and ride, my wifes Dad passed away early this morning, had just bought plane ticket and reserved a rental car at airport and was leaving for a week long visit Wednesday, maybe an hour or less after booking the flight, we got a phone call that he had died sad day for our household and especially my wife, a good bike ride always helps me clear my head and makes for good thinking time.

Rest in Peace Roscoe H.

Peace, Map

Figure out if it's running rich or lean and go from there.

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

here in central Texas where I live and with a free flowing exhaust on my bikes, my jets always have to be soldered up and redrilled smaller, I use a propane torch to heat the jet while holding it with pliers and then I put a dap of solder in the hole to fill it, I then use a #73 wire gauge drill bit and redrill the jet, so far that same jet size has worked out good on all three of my bikes and they all are set up just a little different.
I also run nothing but Opti2 oil mix and I mix it at around 80:

For anyone who doesnt know a good source for the wire gauge bits here is where I get my stuff like that, tools for polishing ports and wire gauge bits at very good prices.

For gasket making here are links to their cutting tools also.

Hope these links will help someone out, to resize the main jet is very simple and only requires some simple tools, the jet must be clean from all oil before it can be soldered, I just give mine a good spraying of carb cleaner and let it dry.

#73 - .024" - .61mm

never even tried one that small, are you sure that isn't too lean to get up hills?

got it running finally!

been having issues with it idling or even running like it should (it would bog down the second i hit the gas)

I went to drain the tank to put a fresh batch of gas in, and noticed that it was gurgling through the fuel line as it was draining... i poped the cap off and suddenly a river of gas flows out!

all this time, my troubles were from a cap that wouldn't vent... who woulda thought.

^Drill a little hole in it. Don't go too big like I did, your gas will evaporate and it will splash through the cap at high speed.


(and ruin light colored shorts in the process)
