    How To Post Pictures of your Motorized Bicycle

    Re: How To Post Pictures Is talking to yourself weird? Cause i'ma doin' a lot of it. So, between me and the bedpost: I am sure that the requirements for an avatar yesterday were 100x100 pix's. Today I see it's now 80x80. I have discovered how to reduce my pic, and have tried to implement any...

    Leaky Petcock

    Not sure if this is usual: the petcock is right at the tank. If I don't ride for a few days , the fuel in line has dropped about 1 inch. So the fuel drained into the carb..I'd like to put another petcock where the fuel line enters the carb. Has anyone noticed this drainage prob, and moved or...

    Looking for mirror suggestions.

    Yea, my first mirror was useless unless stopped. Bought one that fits over grip and it tightened with velcro. It works better but....The prob I have with it is that it adds about 6 horizontal inches to the left side handlebars, getting in the way of trees and bushes. Looking for a better setup.

    loose chain

    Howdy...If anyone wants to comment, thanks. My chain is way loose. I removed 2 links , put 1 back in. Still unable to join chain back together. I thought maybe chain would've stretched and allow 1 link to be removed. Nope. Still the chain flops around. The tensioner is maxed out. I was...

    Hiya....The sprocket is small enough that it runs below the rear calipre that grabs onto the disc. If the sprocket were larger, the chain would be blocked by the calipre . I will try and get a pic up.....Not sure what a top hat is ( other than the local strip club). I would really like a larger...

    So's I pick up the new bike (greg) during a 500km round trip. It's a beaut. After attachments it looks like a moto x . I found the same bike only here minus the disc brakes for 550 buck. It's a Trek series 4... Found the front brake does not work as the cable snapped within the splice housing...

    Merci Mark...It may be that our purposes for the bikes are different. I am not looking for a commuter bike. I want to take this puppy off-road. I need excercise. I am a little worried about the 32 or 36 tooth sprocket that is to be installed. It "has to be" that small in order to turn under the...
