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

    wOW THAT MOTOR LOOKS BRAND NEW UNLESS HE PAINTED IT & i DON'T THINK SO, IT LOOKS AS IF IT NEVER REALLY GOT THAT HOT dON'T THEY TEND TO CHANGE COLOR A BIT WHEN THEY GET REAL HOT ? Freaking caps Caps I hat that I didn't look up soon enough they need a "uncap button " in Windows So if your an id10T like me you can just highlight like copy / paste then click "Uncap" & it fixes it . Id use that option often!!
    I'm not retyping all that either so deal with it LOL ..

    R/C.
    It sure looks like a 66to me the 49's tend to have a shorter head/ bore stroke it seems to me don't they IDK ?

    Woo! Nothing like that first kit at the door, eh guys? Be sure to read the instructions 3 times before you get to it. And, as always, we're here to help too.

    Best of luck on your first kit! dance1

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

    I went to ChinaMart to get some Krylon clear coat spray paint since I used Krylon white on the misc. parts.
    They were out of stock.
    I went to Lowes and all they had was Valspar brand in clear. I asked the guy at the paint counter if it would be compatible with the Krylon I used. He said yes, no problems with them.
    Sprayed it on my battery holder and instant wrinkle city! Ruined the paint on it immediately.
    After inventing a few new words for the English language I decided to forgo clear coating any of the parts and installed the handlebars. I will wax the parts later for protection from the elements.

    Damm guy at the counter.... Appears to know very little about paint and he is the one that sells the paint.....
    Arrrrgh!!!

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

    managed to get the predator engine mounted. just need to get bolts to mount the cvt, some set screws to install in the cvt parts (don't trust what little amount of a key way makes it into the shaft from the 5/8" to 3/4" adapter)

    gonna need the bike now that my car got totaled.

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

    man, I haven't posted in forever. Bike's been down. My chain stretched to the point where I just don't trust it anymore, so i started looking for a new one. Finally ordered it online. Should be here next week.
    In the meantime, I've been turning the basement into a stop-motion animation studio. Satisfying work, but it's no match for the motorbike.

    y'alright skarred?

    I had entered a intersection, waiting to turn left. light turned yellow, a few cars went through, i was certain that the suv that hit me was stopping. started turning left and got plowed by said suv.

    Dammm... Another left turn incident, but reversed a bit.
    Was a cel phone involved on the suv's part?
    Anyways I am glad that you seem to be in good spirits about it all and are not in a hospital.

    Kickass ccc!

    Had the beater out with the trailer. Stopped at a light, cop pulls up beside me, she gave me a thumbs up! woo!

    Got back, too nice out to not fire up the 29er. Gotta love the sound of a hopped up HT on a straight pipe. (only temp till SBP pipe) hour later, my ears are still ringing :D

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

    not sure, but assuming from how it played out i imagine so. SUV had plenty enough time to stop, and even if they simply hit the brakes i would have gotten through ok.

    i have a feeling what happened was she glanced at the light, saw it was yellow, speed up and didn't see i was turning.

    I mean come on, i had a bright red car, kinda hard NOT to see it.

    I have a "fire engine bright" red pickup truck. People miss seeing me all the time.
    I even drive with the headlights on during the day now. I figure all the more ammunition against them in court if the day ever comes. Bright red and lit up. (no jokes about that, ok?)

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

    soooo thankful man! i would be dead if it was the motor bike!

    speaking of which, i got a handful of M6 x1.00 x 12 set screws for the drive pullies on the cvt. going to drill and tap both parts so it will hold it on the shaft stronger, than what little of the key way mates to the shaft.
