Yeah it sounds like the mods you've done and tuning all pays off. What a great hobby these things are.

Reworked the pipe on The Pig. Got rid of the clunky loud stock muffler and added a real silencer.

Bought her a new wheel from the 3rd oldest american and 5th oldest bike shop in the world (greenlees in knoxville). A couple days ago I picked up a cranbrook that had only been ridden once for $35 so she has a riding companion and I got a free schwinn bike helmet for me in the deal.

Don't know if I'll ever use this on the bike, but I bought a new impact wrench and set of metric impact sockets. Gonna change the struts on my Nissan and my air compressor/old impact aren't up to the task. So........instead of a lot bigger, tons more expensive air compressor, I bought a corded electric impact wrench. Says it'll do up to 220 lb/ft of torque. Sure as heck hope those nuts aren't tighter than that!!

Those electric impacts do a pretty good job, I have a Craftsman 19.2v cordless impacr my wife got me a couple years ago for Christmas and it has sure came in handy, I mainly use it on my bikes but I've use it for taking lug nuts off of mine and my oldest sons trucks and it got it done, isn't as powerful as my air impact but does great on light to medium jobs... the corded one like you have is better than my cordless one im sure.

Replaced the magneto in my China girl 2 stroke bike and decided to ditch the spark plug cable and boot and just mount the CDI directly to the spark plug. It starts better and seems to be a bit faster. Welcome to the 1990s motor-bicyclers!

I fabbed a manifold and replaced the "stationary" motor carb on my 79cc Lifan 4 stroke. I used a china made carb (19mm) for small motorcycles, and man what a difference! It brought that little guy to new life, even sounds like a motorcycle now! Amazing what better breathing can do.
