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

I forgot to say Mark, the Worksmans, front wheel with drum brakes was $99 bucks but that was a couple of yrs back. I hit the same pot hole twice that was and is still so big, it cracked the frame and that expletive wheel is still true and st8. Uber well made in America with quality materials.

Hey Chainman, a buddy and I are going to their factory to pick up a set for him and I want to see if they will make some specialty ones for me. (Dyno/drum brake front and gear clustered rear) Take the ride with us. Really is a cool old world factory. They are fun to speak with too. They do a lot for charity and are very friendly.

Is about 2 hrs from HTFD, CT in Queens NY.

so i still can't get the bike to run correctly! it's getting on my nerves too!

ever since i changed the needle to the middle position it's been having sooo many issues!

right now looking into building a CDI box to replace the current one. pulled the head and jug off, sanded the head a bit so the gasket will seat good, and inspected everything.

i just can't figure out what's going on with it...


it'll run sorta good up to 1/2 throttle, then sputter at 3/4 at WOT it'll bog down almost to stalling, then suddenly catch and rev up like crazy. tried the needle at middle, 2nd to top and top notch, all with same results.

I installed this TrailTech from DDM:

tt151

I checked the sparkplug on my Tanaka 47R engine. It was chocolate brown, which is good.

Then I rode eight miles to Ala Moana Park, just outside of Waikiki. My daughter and her friends were surfing there and picnicking. I relaxed for awhile, ate some spaghetti and fried chicken, then rode home again.

When I reached home, I wiped the bike down and adjusted both disc brakes.

The bike rides well, except the tranny is noisy. Maybe I'll pull it out and relube it soon.

Thanks. It's such an easy install. I might buy TWO more for my twin-engine project. They are so compact that they should fit well, stacked atop the bike stem.

cleaned the carb last night, but the bike together and suddenly it runs. don't know what the **** i did but it runs.

although the exhaust was a tiny bit loose, so i'm starting to think maybe it got clogged somehow.
