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

bought a hex head bolt for the carb clamp... and cracked the aluminum that makes up the clamp...

looks like i'll really be needing an nt carb now...
cns carb runs great, it's just i couldn't ever keep it from shimmying off... even with some gas resistant gasket maker, j-bweld and copper based rtv... i even zip-tied it on and it would still rotate enough for the float to stop working...

EDIT: just went ahead and ordered a NT carb (or rather the 'speed' carb) from spooky tooth.

maybe you should try to shave off a little material on the clamp part the problem is the clamp closes all th way before tightining down to the intake manifold

i had already taken quiet a bit of material off the clamp so it could tighten down more. even still it would twist and start coming off. last time i tried using jb-weld it got hot enough for it to melt...

hopefully i'll have better luck with the NT carb...

Had some fun mounting triple-trees on my mountain bike with dead motor(to see if they would fit). They wouldn't fit on my cruiser, but they fit the mtb! So then I had more fun swapping the running motor over to the mtb. Took my time, double checked everything, and she fired up and took me for a boot around town.

Brought my tools but didn't need'em.

remember to use the speed carb's slide an' needle, don't mix'n match. Oh and keep your eyes open for Jim's billet cns intake. His first 20 were sold out before they were in stock, lol.


Edit- just caught up on this thread a bit, you'll squash those Gremlins yet Wildy!

Installed my HD upgraded Intake from Pirate Cycles, quick shipping and great service! Also, mounted additional front fender support.

if the motor had come with an appropriately sized intake pipe i really wouldn't be having this problem.

so i'm hoping that the nt/speed carb will fit better (also like the design of the clamping part better than the cns carb. metal on metal, not metal on nylon on metal...)

Right now I have my primary cover off and lubing the gears. They needed it, they were pretty dry. Glad I went in. I'm also coating the inside of the cover with plasti dip spray like bairdco suggested to help quite it down a little.

You can learn a lot from the forums experience. It's like going instantly from pea brain to super mega brain.
