Just got back from a 15 mile ride. It's much warmer today, though: highs in the 40s!

After finding out how to adjust the valve lash on this forum from Aleman's wonderful how to post I decided to check my HS 142 valve lash (built date 2013) that just has 20 hours on it. The factory setting or how it was after 20 hrs of use was .005 intake and .008 exhaust I changed that to .004 intake and .006 exhaust as per Aleman's recommendation.

As a note HS change the straight slot to an allen slot on the adjustment bolt.

Put the new wheels on. Had to drill the presta holes to shraeder. Wheels spin fantastic.

Raised my handlebar, adjusted my seat. Lost my air filter, so I put the stock one back on. I was looking at the uni filters anyways.

My new tires haven't showed up yet. Neither has my Velo orange handlebar extender.

Been thinking about a skyhawk frame. Would look good and have room for a high compression head.

Was riding tonight, and my throttle was going crazy. Took a look, found that the idle screw fell off along the way.

Threw a fit, watched some tv to cool off, and went back to it. I didnt have any extra idle screws, so I sat there looking at the bike, and boom.
The idle screw had fallen on top of the engine, and was still there!!!@!


good times along with the bad so far with the engine kits. maybe ill go for another ride.

Now that's just goofy. Did you get a lottery ticket? Keep a real close eye on it. It vibrates out once then it's likely to do it again. Was there a spring? Prob need to do the ball point pen spring trick.

Pedaled to gas station, filled up, and then the damn thing wouldn't run plus the back tire would lock up on me when I was trying to get it started. GRRRR
