    Wrap string around the threads, then retighten. It'll probably hold until you get another one....

    Orrrr drill and tap the pedal's end, tighten it on. Then place a washer larger than the arm's hole and tighten a bolt into the threaded end of the pedal.dance1

    tried once again to get my carb running.

    turns out i didn't have the float in upside down (as it can only go in one way) so now i got no clue what's wrong with it. (f-ing CNS carb) just gonna order a NT carb and be happy with it.

    Got a new sparkplug, Riped the boot off cause I could'nt find a replacement yet, wraped the wire under the little sparkplug 'cap' as a nut, fiddled with the C clip on the needle, decided to try fiddling with the carb hoses and such.

    Fixing up the headlight to make it brighter, 'cause I stacked my bike 5 weeks ago in a dark stretch of cycleway, and got a plate put into my wrist. Have had my hand in a cast for 4 weeks now, another 1-2 weeks to go!

    did some small adjustments to it, took the rim brake off the rear wheel and put it on the front. turns out the front one was twisted so it wasn't braking correctly.

    also cleaned up the cables a little so it's not so cluttered and crazy.
    thinking i might get also get this too

    Swapped out my stock cruiser bars for inverted mtb bars. Feels more evil when riding now. :p

    Put a Husky (heavy duty) rear wheel on my friend's MB. Also with a Manic Mechanic rear hub. Excellent modification! Got it from Pirate Cycles.

    Gonna take the Andian out for a spin, if the burgers ever git finished cooking!

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

    today i put my bike in 21st gear and went WOT down the street while pedaling, hit about 40 mph before i had to stop. neighbor came out to yell at me, and i promptly told him to remove himself from my property. (i have not liked my neighbor since i moved in, hes spread nails out on the trail i ride my dirtbikes on... etc.)

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

    Rode uptown to buy groceries. With the coming of colder weather I bought a set of goggles and wore them for the first time to keep the cold wind out of my eyes. On the bike I usually take the long way around to get to town. Straight line is a mile and a half, but a round-about route is four miles, and another is six miles. Tilted the saddle front down one notch after the ride.

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

    rode it to the autozone just down the street from me, showed it to my friend that works there, asked if the had a b5hs or b6hs plug in stock (they didn't) then rode home to find out that i melted the jbweld that i had put on the night before and had the carb trying to wiggle off again...

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

    was going to get one of these 'carp O-rings' from SBP:
    Sick Bike Parts

    But instead, I ordered a billet intake and air cleaner from Pirate's(Ported Billet Intake (In Stock)). Still got the allen bolts and grade-8 mount studs from sbp though, also a performance plug wire/boot, and a piece of silicone tubing so I can do up a pocket bike exp-chamber pipe with dual exhaust :)

    Should be fun!
