I got everything running. With aftermarket plug, plug wire, the GT50R carb, new fuel line, different tires/rims/hubs, slant head, aftermarket kill switch, tuned brakes, and CC billet intake. Then the muffler snapped in two. Why me.... This bike, when running, is a beast, it runs almost perfect. Now I have an excuse to go get a SBP X Chamber. But still, I'm mad.

Had to order another handle bar quill since turning the bars over made me hit my knees on them... luckily there is a 10" quill available and that should get them high enough to clear my long legs.

Other than that got the CDI mounted and have the sprocket on and chain ready to mount... 2 days till the new sled is ready to run and with 50+ temps predicted I am ready.

I was working on adding a mini cargo rack and thought I should add some springers to the seat. These springs came from my son's old push scooter.

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

I put an Ez-Start lawnmower plug on it (works) and put a 2.25" Bell Streamliner cruiser tire on it.



$7 now on Ebay
Bell Streamliner Cruiser Bike Tire 26" x 2.25 - eBay (item 140460888818 end time Feb-28-11 17:30:29 PST)

I like the tire, but it needs a big clearance, not with fenders! And use a thorn proof tube 2" or bigger.

I cut off the manifold end of an old 2 stroke pipe that KC sold me yesterday. I'm going to use it with a flex pipe from EZM. Then I bought some slime and some tire liners to do both mine and my son's bike.

I did a lot of scratching my head over how to mount this thing, can anyone help me out here?

Looked at my bikes then looked out at the snow packed, icy streets and cursed winter.
If there is such a thing as 'Global Warming' I wish it would hurry up and get here. I can't take much more of this lousy winter. I WANT TO RIDE MY BIKES!!!

Took advantage of the nice weather we are having here for a change, it was actually in the 60's today. I rode the heck out of the bike today, went down the road to the next large neighborhood over and went through the recreation area and turned several heads, then rode through the local publix parking lot then back over to my neighborhood, it was a blast.

Cleaned the carburetor on my original red and white Briggs bike. It has been sitting a few months and ran really bad until today. Then I chased down my 2 neighbors who just built chinese motorbikes. Blew by them just like the World's Fastest Indian. Looks like they're heavy into mods and pretty soon they will return the favor. We had fun cruising and racing around the tract. Still have to clean the carbs on my Whizzer and other Briggs bike. When you own more than one motorbike, some get neglected.
