I also added a washer by the clutch stem to reduce the rattle.





Dan.

looks great Dan, those look very much like the bars I have on my orange bike now, so far I like them.

With the colder weather and my job in retail, the windows of opportunity and good weather won't intersect much until spring.
good insulated over-hauls gloves and some goggles and BAM........ youre good to go man....LOL!

Thats what I do when I get the itch and just have to ride, did it yesterday as a matter of fact... I dont ride much in the winter either, I live several miles from town out in the country so the F150 is much more comfortable.

Just got my new twist throttle now I got a problem with cable length is there any need for the elbow in the cable? I'm thinking about cutting it off with my dremel. Or is there any way I can use a different cable?

Replaced easty strip China bolts with American made triple hardend bolts to mount my motor. Shes stayin! I pull my motor out frequently to adjust float because I can't get to it. Carb issue is over with, and cheap chiner bolts were to! My $75 Pocket Motor was going 45mph today in the wind. It climbs better up hills than 4 stroke Heshing. I love the fact I can push or pedal it with ease. Ready to take orders for easy install mounting kits with instructional video.

So I took off that elbow and boy am I lucky the cable is just the right length now. Just took her for a spin had trouble with the choke arm so I took apart the speed not carb filter to really tighten that but hopefully it doesn't come loose again. Also won 20 at lotto wheel of fortune at the convenience store wooot!

Im really, really enjoying the new feel of these bars just one downside, you have to really keep a good grip on them around here, we have really bumpy roads.

In other news, I chatted with Dave from Arrow this evening for quite awhile and wow what a nice guy! I had many questions and he really helped me out and offered up some great advice. To date every vendor and forum member Ive chatted with (and its a fast growing list) have all been really great folks.

Dan.

Today Im doing final checks, and tomorrow will be departing on a 5-6 leg journey that may span about 50 miles, depending on the temperature at midnight
