Oops stuffed up another msg the top pic wasn't supposed to be there..

But while I'm here put the clip up a notch didn't really make to much of a difference a little less 4 stroking when cruising I'd say from 30% to 15% of the time in and out sort'a thing. Just gunna leave it there last thing I want is to glue the rings to the barrel at pace.

My second/third hand motor on my C-List bike,started running very weak, So I decided to take a look inside. Piston, scored- cylinder, Gouged- rings nicked and scored. Totally toast!! So I decided to tear it down and order parts.
First I tried the Mechanics approach, but was soon convinced these little Chinese engins have had classical Eastern training. I started with the Kung Fu, then progressed to Jujitsu, and finally NinJistu, All failed. Wat did seem to work was the Steve Irwin technique. I fought it like aligator, wraped my legs around it, twisted and turned, rolled around, got my fingers inside everything I could, and then finally,,,,,,,,,the engine gave up, and let me inside.
So, tonight, I will clean and degrease everything, and start reasembly with the new parts that arrived, and see if I can get it running again.
Tons of fun!!!

lol i was doing laundry, then had the sudden urge to check the headbolts on my bike, well that lead to me checking the cone nut and tightening it, which lead to me checking the throttle cable for slack which lead to me firing her up and taking her for a quick ride around the neighborhood, then checking the idle speed (raised it a little)

lol

Changed my mind with thE zorst I'll b using for the build going to use a 50cc expansion chamber of an old race bike 22mm header diameter approx will be roughly 10" in header length and the chamber is 92mm at 100mm long not Inc cones. Should be betta than the ktm 65 as I'd never really rev to 13000rpm so the band would of been only right up the top me thinks. This build is taking forever 

finished cutting up my moped expansion chamber, then looked at the big crack where the mounting tab is, then grinded the tab off, then looked at the stock exhaust and had a lightbulb overhead moment.

temporarily scrapped the expansion chamber plans, and took the stainless steel flange, pipe, and cut up stock exhaust can to my buddy and welded something up.

on the way, my copper tank sprung a leak, spewing gas allover me. i didn't Kreem this one 'cause i ran out. gotta do some solderin' tomorrow.

still ain't postin pics 'cause i'm makin' you wait for the finished product. a few more days...

I received a new handlebar thru the mail from Niagara Cycles & installed it.
Its a $3.50 special, 5" rise, steel, MTB 25.4mm (1") riser bar that is 27" wide that I flipped upside down to get low & wide (need some more weight on the front end with the rear rack lifan).
