I cleaned the pile of clutter off it and pretended to rev the throttle for a minute. Then I took a nap.

Last night I cleaned the Karaoke bike really good, replaced bearing in chain tensioner roller, adjusted chain tension, added large clamp for better support of the sbp expansion chamber, cleaned wheels and checked spokes over good, added extra head gasket, compression was so high after I milled head down that the bike was really tough to start, sometimes tire would slide or clutch slip ever with my 215lbs on it, cleaned spark plug and run a compression test and still have 120lbs with only popping the engine over a couple times using the pedal like a kick start while holding rear tire up off of ground, which is still very hard to do....! My wife talked me out of giving this bike to my brother because he will likely just park it in the shed and rarely if ever ride it, that would bother me so he's getting a nice card and a good steak dinner tomorrow night for his birthday.....!

It's late for summer, but after dealing with stomach problems this season, I finally ordered a dual brake handle and springing chain tensioner. I actually took out both of the bikes and started fixing them.
One has to have a new rear sprocket put on it. The other has to have the main inner gasket replaced.
One has the rear wheel removed and ready for surgery. The other is still in the waiting room.

After doing some research here I figured out that my new motor was four stroking and not bogging like I thought. Plug gap was set at .025 so I opened it up to .032 and lo and behold more torque and just the slightest four stroking near the top end. I'll say its pretty peppy until about 2 miles or so and then I started to four stroke again, mainly on upgrades and then later in even in the flats around 17 mph just like before.

Well we arrived at the local sporting goods store about 4 miles from home to pick up some reloading supplies and when I got back on the bike nice and zippy again! About 2 miles later the symptoms repeating. Didn't have a chance to pull the plug when I got back but I did check the motor temp and around the exhaust port on the cylinder itself it was only 220 degrees and the rest of the cylinder was around 205-210 degrees.

It only has 57 miles on it so I will assume more break in time is needed

Dan.

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

Hey Map , what does H-D stand for ? I'm take a guess , Hum-Dinger ? I'll use it in a sentence .
That sure is a "Hum-dinger" of a bike . Where you get dat.

Well didn't think of the Hum-Dinger....but I like it,.....!

Actually when I put this bike together about three years ago I told people it was my Huffy Davidson.... haven't mentioned that much because that is your handle on the forum but yeah the H-D stands for HUFFY DAVIDSON and mine will be called the HUM-DINGER KARAOKE MODEL from here on out......I like it!

It aint fancy but it is a very solid bike, im gonna have suspension forks on it in the future and some different bars, also plan to have a Dax lower on this bike in the future also, I'll jst pull the upper off this engine and stick it on the Dax, the engine on it is a very good runner but above 32-34mph she starts the to much vibes thing, I'd like to have it smoother at 35mph and I'd be pretty happy.

Thanks for the Hum-Dinger idea Huffy -D...lol
