    You must have quite a bit of HP to go through chains that quickly!
    Did you post pics of your bike?

    The bike I’m having chain trouble with has a bit low end power but not chain snapping power. I think all the chains that I’ve tried are just very poor quality.

    I picked up my new red motorcycle helmet, and my red Simpson neckbrace arrived in the mail. That's for my Iron Man riding costume.

    My new leather "Rocketeer" jacket arrived from India! I'm stoked! It fits over my dirt bike armor and elbow guards, ya can't even tell. My wife likes it too.

    I wore it to work today; goes well w/khaki pants. Might as well buy new brown Red Wing leather boots for work, costume/MB riding. My existing RW boots are over 10 years old. I used them in the phone company job I retired from in 2002.

    Now to fab the "Rocketeer" helmet, lol.dance1

    started mounting the CAG motor on the bike. got the SBP 4 stroke shift mount. looks VERY promising, just need to drill the holes for the motor and bolt it down.

    pics below.


    yeah i'm still trying to figure that outscratg

    only thing i can think of is just motor is the gears maybe aren't meshed as well as they should.

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

    Spanners, probably two things...
    IMO u should take a link out of the chain and re-position the tensioner so it does not put the slack side of the chain in such a sharp angle.
    Also, there's a current thread on switching to 410 chain. It seems everyone who has done so never looks back!

    Are you losing your chain on acceleration, or when decelerating?

    Skarrd, I like the look of those little motors! ...don't know nuthin abt 'em, but I like the look! :) It's called CAG? wazzat stand for??? or mean?

    No riding today...
    I guess my kid decided to shuffle the garage.
    Probably gonna be easier bringing the mab out thru the kitchen when I go out tomorrow... Kids!

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

    Well working freaky long hours got me a little spending money. Now I just bought these for my old Boxer bike. http://www.bikeparts.com/search_results.asp?ID=BPC149279 and tubes that work with the Large Marge rims perfectly. Metzeler Motorcycle Tube http://www.bikebandit.com/metzeler-motorcycle-tube

    I road the bike more tonight and its been a grip of mine my forks on it are a tad too short for my stature. Problem solved. The big L.M. rim on the rear is awesome after more ride time its mind blowing to me. Like a completely different bike. It feels like it can grip a turn very well. Gonna put one on the front too!! That is what stemmed getting the fork I need the rim clearance now I got it. dance1

    This means of course I gotta sell my old fork some where lol.

    . Thanks Rustycase
    I'm willing to try anything, my reasoning was a bad heat treating and the poor material there made from. I'll look into the 410 as well.
    Cheers mate

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

    Do you mean 415 chain? Can you please post or PM the thread link? I googled 415 chain on this site, and there were LOTS of old threads.

    I have one of these, but haven't installed it yet (can't fit with current cog installation) but it is heavy, and the rollers don't flop around. The side plates are THICK. http://compare.ebay.com/like/280820470809?var=lv&ltyp=AllFixedPriceItemTypes&var=sbar&_lwgsi=y&cbt=y
    KMC 415H dirt jump chain, 22$USD

    $13, maybe free shipping, http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-BMX-Cha...&otn=21&pmod=280820470809&ps=54#ht_607wt_1187

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

    I had a great day with my daughter at the parks. My bike worked great, with the new boost bottle, new tire and super tubes. I had awesome traction, even on wet grass I could motor around. (I put the tire on "backwards" and it seemed to work wonderfully that way.) She got to play on the grass and playground, got to see ducks and geese and puppies, got to see Grandma, and got Sonic chocolate malt after her lunch. Yum. dance1
