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

Rode it from my house to Point Cook, approximately 22 kilometres away. Took about 40 minutes? I didn't go very fast, wasn't going flat out.

On the way home from Seddon though, about 12 km, I forgot to check time but riding along cars going at 60km/h, I was probably around 45-50km/h WOT for speed.

I wonder if it'll get faster after the break in period? o.O

Fix a leak (hopefully it's fixed now)

Used a soda can as a temporary exhaust tip (because I lost the proper exhaust tip, and yes, I did make a hole at the bottom of the can)

Tighten clutch and brakes a little more

Moved rear basket back a little more (so I can actually completely sit on the bike)

Refuel

Stuffed rubber bits between the cooling fins of the engine (one user posted it as a tip as it helped reduce the vibration on their bike)

Gave it a quick test run.

Things to do would be:

File down part of the engine mount parts so they can sit flush with the frame

Swap out old short studs on the front mounts and replace with longer ones so I can put the bracket on

Get a new exhaust to make the engine run quiet

Made a 1/4" spacer and inserted it into my throttle tension assembly to fix my small idle problem. Added my new Manic Mechanic Large CNS intake and didn't have to cut down the clutch alignment screw. He must be making them a bit longer now. If you are having CNS trouble and hate that crappy plastic spacer, this is a great product.

lol Gearnut. Before or after the last crash?

Does sound like the poorly worded "how to properly mount a Chinagirl"

Once again proving my editing skills are full proof.
