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

Today I wondered how I was going to mount my super titan, and thought of mounting another plate on the existing mount to have it come over to the right more, kinda like a ledge.

Then I made these: u-bolts for my gas tank with rubber fuel line over the metal. Submitted for your enjoyment.

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

I installed and tested my new homemade spring chain tensioner. did 16 miles of rides with no failures which is always great. It seems quieter and has less vibration at high speeds (30) but tends to want to slap or hop around more when decelerating or downhill. This seems to make me clutch and then idle down to whenever I can unclutch and renegage to drive line. As long as I clutch the drive, it slows down fine with no chain hop, and I bet this will increase my milage from letting or forcing me to let it idle down when stopping. Overall it works fine but the driveline dynamic is just different because the chain runs much looser than with a regular stationary type tensioner. It seems to pull uphill fine with no bad vibrations or wanting to hop off when under full load with throttle uphill. Goes right up most at 25 with throttle to spare. I will have to ride it more to decide if I like it and it stays.

I'm intrigued; what is this new CDI design?

Anyways, I removed the manufacturer plate I originally stuck on with superglue and re-stuck it with silicone which withstands to 205 degrees Celsius, so that should hopefully keep it from falling off my bike while I ride.

fitted my avid BB5 with a BB7 roundagon 185mm disc.

lol, might need to think about shimming the disc since the caliber just barely clears the spokes. 0_0

HAHAHA today I mounted the throttle and tank to my new Cranbrook and found out that the squishy handle bar grips I cut off are the bomb to cut in half to cushion the peanut tanks to the frame LOL...

I will have this bike up and ride able hopefully tomorrow or at least Monday... It is a must because we will be having mid 50s by the end of the week....

Added twin 3hp Briggs muffs to my tail pipe via a welded "Y" adapter. The single muff did not flow enough for the HF 79, this should do it, Super quiet with both the muff I made and the muffs on the end.
