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

Unbolted the engine to remove the rubber on the frame...WITHOUT DISCONNECTING ANYTHING ELSE.

Yes, I am just that bossly. Seems to have helped vibration.

Also rode it past some cute girls that were walking their bikes up hill, I was doing only 20 at the time as I can't run WOT. Carb works fine unless you hit too many bumps or run it at WOT at high speeds, then it pops off.

*edit*

Oh yeah, and I facking burned my leg on the engine. >: (

Got a GoPro hero 3 camera.

Decided to take it out on a quick run now that the bike runs really good (fixed the alignment issue on the jackshaft so now it doesn't keep breaking the chains)

I took the Pig out for awhile today. First real ride since I had my problems. Very nice!
My Pig fired right up with a tiny tickle and ran like a sewing machine (bolted to a jackhammer) and I rode around until I had blown all the dust off and went home happy.

Every day above ground is a GOOD day.

It's a really fun bike. I've used the SBP pipe before, but this was the one from arrow which fit the bike alot better than the SBP pipe does.

BIG tip though, splurge a bit and get some GOOD single speed chain for the jackshaft to crank chain.

I've used the chain it comes with, but ultimately ended up snapping it several times. (basically once it snaps the first time, it's only a matter of time until it snaps again)

The chain i got is much thicker than normal. I'll find the box and find out what type it is.
