    Went for a ride with the new sprocket and promptly lost the master link! Now I feel stupid. Mainly because I forgot to push the master link clip on. Like a genius.

    As soon as I can get a heavy duty chain tool I will be taking it off. I never have problems with ANY of my many master links but I'm pretty crazy about chain alignment. And my chain tensioner may look like crap,but I built it using only a drill and chop saw. It is awesome!




    I actually found the link and outside clip for the master so later today I will be going to get my baby.

    I have used a CT-5 Park tool chain breaker to break the stock 415 chain that came with my kit many, many times. =) If you're careful and have a good breaker you *might* not have to hunt for a ct-7 breaker. But of course, you might break your CT-5. I didn't but I suspect luck was involved =)

    Wow! Did you have the muffler body supported with a strap to the frame or was it just hanging from the cylinder port?
    _____________________________
    Edit: I saw pictures of your exhaust mounting on your other picture thread.
    With the muffler pointing up and out with no other support it will vibrate like a tuning fork and soon fail at every weld possible. All the mufflers need additional support other than the cylinder studs.
    Considering that you want a quiet system, I can see an extended exhaust muffler system from custom motored bicycles (see link below) working better for you if it will fit considering the limited ground clearance your bike has.
    The expansion chamber systems will improve engine performance, but most are louder than the stock muffler.
    ____________________________

    As for a better system, why not go for an SBP expansion chamber or similar exhaust?

    Or custom motored bicycles has all kinds of exhaust systems including a couple of expansion chamber systems. The expansion chamber with no muffler is loud, but folks seem to like it's performance.

    tryed to start it and it failed, thought it was a problem with the clutch it appeared to be not disengaging, puled the clutch apart and couldnt find the problem, cleaned the clutch plate with some acetone. put it back together only to find the front sprocket had came loose.... ( i felt like a knob jockey) tightened it up and i was away. :) pain in the ass.. ha ha

    Didn't put the suspension fork on today but I did this weekend...Paid $5.00 for it, we'll see how long it last. Had to fabricate a long spacer for it. I also put a new air cleaner on it.

    Dunno if it is to late but you could make a strap/support with a pc of flatstock, drill and a hack saw. Just a thunk. Even if it was a "Just for now" deal.

    What did I do to my motorbike today? Not a doggone thing! Yet. Hopefully there's still time. All the way home from work I was looking forward to a peaceful cruise. I got home and my wife told me I'd be going to the laundromat tonight. The dryer had been shooting sparks earlier so she turned it off.
    It does not turn back on. It's dead, Jim.
    So guess where I'm sending this from. C'mon laundrey. Hurry up and dry!
    (F*in' GE dryer.)

    You can get a new heating element for the drier if that's the case for about 30 dollars.
