I think it was mostly air leaks at the carb oh and the intake gasket was choking it of flow

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

last night the bike started acting like the clutch wouldn't grab anymore. shrugged it off thinking that it just needed to be adjusted.

nope.

found out, the crank gear, did not have the wood ruff key in it. 0_0 wondering if it has been that way from the factory, or if it got sheared off, but the fact that i didn't even find part of it still in the crank makes me think that it was missing the key.

surprised it ran this long without it.

Used it to annoy a neighbor. He had a fight with Carol's Father 37 yrs back and has been a jerk to them ever sense. The only thing he has said to me was "You dig holes in my yard and drive on my driveway" in an eastern European accent. (I do no touch a shovel or dig a hole unless there is gold or a rather great hourly wage) He had also told me I "Not good maan" not a typo. So "beeg trouble ford Moose an' skwarl" is raking his driveway. I am working in the garage. I blare the radio and bring out my MB. Point the muffler at him and fire her up. I then pull up an old milk crate and light a smoke. Sit and watch him work.

Forgot to take the muffler off. My bad. But there is always tomorrow.

It sounds like the European man is accusing you of driving your motorbike across his lawn.

got curious and too a second look in the gear box area with the clutch, and sure enough, sitting in a glob of loose grease was the woodruff key.

*facepalm* kinda curious how it managed to get out in the first place...

I rode my bike to work yesterday. Cruising speed was 25 mph-35 mph, whichever the speed limit was. There's a cop near home. He busts a LOT of cars going over 30 in a 25 mph zone. It's so tempting to speed there, because the newly paved half-mile stretch of road is so smooth. I've passed him about five occasions; so far he hasn't bothered me. I stop at every sign and never go more than 5 mph over, or slower than the speed limit, either.

You wouldn't believe how congested traffic is during rush hour traffic. My motorized bicycle is a spoiler. There are times when I ride slowly in the bike lane to pass gridlock.

The engine chain jumped off its chainring sprocket near the bus stop. While I'm fixing it, a nut case stops by to admire my bike and ask me for $2. After I reject him, a crazy woman stops by for a few minutes of monolog.

Jeez, I'm glad I'm riding my MB, not bussing it.

I've had positive comments and questions asked, even from a soccer mom at the stop light.

The rides have been exhausting lately. Methinks it's that huge FUGETTABOUTIT motorcycle chain I carry that I use to lock the bike up. I'll just leave it on the bike rack at work, then carry a bicycle cable on my rides.

Riding up the parking structure 's steep ramps at work is a piece of cake with this bike. With my other MB's, I'd have to ride the elevator to reach the bike rack on the fourth floor.

Wow that's a bummer. What was going on when this happened? Must just be a bad fault in the metallurgy of that gear. A rare fluke.
