I pop into the thread also!

Ordered some things from JNM on 8/15. Been watching the mail for the items. Got an e-mail today.................they didn't even get sent until today!! Glad that these are non-essential parts for a non-essential (for me, at least) machine.......sheeesh! I ordered my chain tensioner from Turbobuick1 on a Saturday and received it on Monday --- from Michigan. Quite a difference there......

Well after rejecting the other day went out for about 20 mile ride and then came back and let her cool down and pulled the plug into the look and see what did I find to my surprise it was a nice almond mocha latte/cappuccino color.

Had to tighten engine studs again yesterday, gonna replace them and loctite real good into case, first engine so far that I've had issues with the studs backing out but I can and will get this fixed asap, really hard on the threads doing all the retightening, will eventually destroy threads in the case.

Simple fix, just a little time and some thread locker will have me rolling again.

Muffler swap on Tanaka 33. Took me a while to find a substitute muffler. http://motorbicycling.com/showthread...600#post507600

Had a good ride today, with the new muffler (nice, poppity sound, powerful for its size). The bike ran hard, even doing a wheelie a couple times. It was topping at 25mph, but that's pretty good for a 1" roller! For a bike that goes through a bunch of back streets and city streets, it's better to race to 25 than to wait it out for a higher speed I will just have to brake down from anyway. I was having fun, till I walked up the grassy incline near my house, where I always have to go to the freeway edge where the service road dead ends. I gas the bike to walk it up the hill. Some crap (beer bottle? other?) got in my rear wheel and destroyed half a dozen spokes and bent my tension strap. I had to walk a mile home. Oh well. When I get a new wheel or spokes, should be able to fix it right up. Meanwhile, I've got another bike. Vrooom! I wonder where to get 12g spokes?

Tweaked a bit on my home made exhaust and made some slight adjustments to the carb....she briefly hit 33mph!! I think that I'm at the limit with this stock sprocket. Hmmm.....I wonder how long that will stay on there???
