I installed a set of upgraded cylinder/head studs and nuts on my 66cc. Cleaned the threads on the studs, nuts, and engine cases followed by torquing the studs to the cases @ 9 ft-lbs. Man, what a diff these studs are over the bent and soft factory studs. The increased basic and/or "over-all" major diameter of the threads on these upgraded studs does a much better job of indexing both cylinder and head during installation (the threads on both the upgraded and the factory studs are rolled btw).

Most, if not all, of the other cheap factory fasteners will get the same treatment...i.e. tossed into the garbage.

Cadaceus: What about threading a small steel pipe and putting a cap on it? I have one on hand (it use to be a cable guide or something), but it's hardened so I;ll have to aneal it before I can thread the non-threaded end. It's curved so it will be nice. Once threaded I can put an extension on it with a coupler if I need to and then cap the extension. The possibilities are endless!!!!!!

Snapped my chain the other day replaced it with a Tsubaki 41 Industrial chain, so far so good!

After fixing an air leak my bike was running rich, like dripping oil on the spark plug rich. Took 60 seconds and swapped out the jet now Im to lean so I guess its fill and drill time again!

Oh! And passed the 100 mile mark on my first motorized build

That's a great chain to use, same brand I use on all my bikes.

I wanted to see how quiet I could make my bike. I had the old muff and added it. Not really a fair test as I had already semi gutted it. This mount is only temporary as I will look at other options as well.

Somewhat quieter.

Made the header for my race bike, changed the jets and adjusted the float.

That's why sick bike parts has the sets already bagged. Stud set for the head and a set for the rest of the bolts. I don't know what the Chinee make the bolts from but Grade 0 is being generous. I had all kinds of problems with the stock motor mount bolts. Replaced them with Grade 5 bolts from ACE. No more problems.

Nice looking set up there ccc, I plan a build with my older 196cc clone, will need a billet flywheel and a few other mods to get it safe on a bike but, I plan a solid build with it when I have the time in the future, it already has the arc billet rod, ported 14cc head with flat top piston and 18# springs and 1.2 ratio rockers, I'd like to go roller rocker and. Mild cam grind as well when I get to the project.

You do great work .
