Received my cardboard filled rubber doughnut on the porch today.





Just a little bit skinnier but it should work out great.

Got new throttle assembly today from BGF and installed it today due to the fact that the other one after 3 years and 4000 thousand miles finally took a dump. I also installed a keyed barrow switch on the side of the Jaguar CDI the I bought from Jameco electronics . Checked my plug after returning the JAG and discover does running lean by plug color. So in the morning I guess I'll be getting up from a .72 to .74 jet. Supposed to be really clear tomorrow 90 degrees and low low wind . This thing is going fly .

Clutch tried to commit suicide.

Got that fixed, still grinds the clutch cover though, no idea what's going on.

Got gas for it, not gonna take the bike to the gas station with the rack and a gas can on it though, bungee kept trying to slip off. lol


Gonna flip the tank over, remove the petcock screen, blow the petcock out, then do the same with the carby.

Today I replaced the speedometer battery, and it was time for new front disc brake pads as well adjust the rear v-brakes. Then I took her out for nice evening ride . I may go up one or two more jet sizes.

Had a good morning ride. Then chain stretched out too much and got caught in the housing again.

Met some new guys on my route that also work on Motorcycles, so It's added training

Rejetted the carb on my Dax engine, originally had a jet that was soldered and drilled with #73 wire gauge bit, that turned out to be a bit lean for this engine set up, redrilled with #71 which turned out to be rich, resoldered and drilled with #72 today and took a 25 miles ride, much of it running 40+mph, after the long ride I let engine cool for a long while and then checked the spark plug color, PERFECT! nice light chocolate brown color and it runs nice for such low miles so far.
This engine really purs along at 40-42mph this engine only has 41 miles on it so far and I hit 45mph WOT tucked on a long flat, stock type Dax slant head, NT carb and extremely loud home built exhaust..... once I get the new exhaust built and the Puch head on it I dont expect much more speed but I'm sure it will get there a bit quicker, 38-40mph is a comfortable cruise speed for me, even a bit slower is fine but it sure is nice to hammer it on up to over 40mph ever now and then, after the trip I checked the head studs and they needed tweaking down again, just used the stock studs in this engine for now but I will be making some up when I put the Puch head on, I have two 3' lengths of high quality 8mm x 1.25 all thread, stock studs are loosening from case, I think that is the only place I didn't use any loctite, I'll change that if they loosen again.

Did some looking at several possibilities on how I may run the exhaust on the bike, just not sure how I'm gonna do it yet, about four options I'm looking at.....( stare at floor and scratch head time...)

Many may be watching in silence and anticipation, just lurking in the background waiting for it to all come together and then they'll jump out and give you a hand clap and a standing O for all the time and hard work you've put in to this very unique project, I'm liking the heck out of it myself and I know others feel the same way as I do, we're still here buddy.
