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

Drove it back and forth to work today, checked my forks when I got to work and when I got home and can confirm they no longer leak. Pretty happy about that. Then after I got home I took the mapp/pro torch and heated and bent my pedal arms a bit, because both my pedals were cockeyed. Got them pretty much straight now. It was a good day today.

Rode to a Freinds house and had him do a little welding for me on muffler. Cruise around town a bit.

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

Well, I pulled the engine from the DFD today, to swap rollers back to 1". I'm looking at it now. It still has good clutch shoes. That is quite a lot of time, and a lot of running time at low RPMs and clutching in and out a lot. I'm happy they are good shoes. Bladez brand scooter clutches can work also. i think they are 20-25$ a pair. http://www.monsterscooterparts.com/c...ez-tanaka.html

$18/pair here http://www.ereplacementparts.com/tan...912_34915.html

Replaced the 6T (titanium) spark plug with the 7T. Modified frame to exhaust bracing. First got a piece of 1" silicone tube split it and put around bike frame, secured the frame to the expansion pipe with the silicone pressure tape then put a clamp around both on to further secure the exhaust to frame. Overall vibration is less, seem to have got a little kick in power from plug and starts on first pedal stroke instead of second. First time it ever started on first stroke. Was told the 7T plug would assist with starting and vibration. The silicone tape/1" tubing/clamp frame to exhaust bracing initially seems very worthwhile. The tape withstands the heat very well and looks fine.

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

Just drove it back and forth to work today, but I do have some plans in the works, including a replacement mirror for one I broke when I took a spill last week, a new back rim, and making the switch from Royal Purple to Shell Rotella T. I got a gallon of Rotella, ordered the mirror, and have the money on my card to order the new back rim. The customer service department I need to order the rim from is closed till Monday, so have to wait on that deal.
