Installed my NGK BPR7HIX plug today.

MAN! WHAT A DIFFERENCE! Gained 2mph flat ground speed, up from 32 mph. Part. throttle response and acceleration is amazing!

Old B7HS on bottom, new plug on top.




Spiffy fuel filter.

Might set up a youtube account to post my fly-by video. idk.

*EDIT*
Here's the video!

I took the Huffy wheel off the cruiser to inspect the bearings and true it. One of the bearings was shot, I replaced it with a spare. I did true the rim, though it was nowhere nearly as badly warped as I had thought. I trued it anyway, in order to get better tension on the spokes. It did not take very much at all to get good tension. I put the wheel back on the bike and test drove it. I would not call the wheel good as new, but it will survive a few trips back and forth to work until my Sportsman adapter arrives and I swap this wheel out for a wheelmaster wheel. I did figure out the source of the problem, though. It was improper cone adjustment causing my wheel to lean to one side and rub the frame, and eventually causing my bearings to self destruct. Oh well, live and learn. The wiggle is still there and I am still unable to determine exactly what is causing it. Luckily, I do not have to use this wheel much longer and I have spare bearings in case I should have another failure before swapping out rims.

If you're referring to the gasket material I use for intake and cylinder base gasket the answer is no..... you must use a metalic material sucha as aluminum, copper or brass, standard fi er type gasket material will not work for head gasket but is good for all other accept head gasket and exhaust gasket which needs to be something made to take the exhaust heat.

I have made my own head gaskets several times but without proper tools it would be very difficult to do.

Hope this answers your question.

The last head gasket I made was out of a pie pan. For the stud holes I simply used a notebook paper punch. $3.00 works on all the gaskets. O on the exhaust I use a license plate off a car. Nothing bets free material .

I buy .016 thick aluminum sheets at a local hardware store and make my head gaskets from that, I use a hole punch from a set I got at HF and use a hole saw for the center bore of the gasket.
