    I replaced the chinese bolts on my Dax Friction Drive, where the u-bracket mounts to the frame, and added a couple extra nuts to lock the bolts in place where they first go through a bracket. It made it WAY more stable.

    Then I added a foam air filter into my rubber air boot, made from cutting a disc out of a Lawnboy $5 foam air filter (made 2). I started and ran it, seemed to stay put ok and ran fine.

    $1.30 instead of $5, here.

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

    Installed a few new parts I got in the mail yesterday. 36t sprocket, speed carb, new fuel line with filter, some better handgrips then those God awful ones that come with the Flying Horse engines.
    Still waiting for my replacement pipe from Bikeberry. It's frustrating having all these new upgrades and not be able to use them. I did fire it up and run it a few minutes just to make sure it would run, but it's too damn loud for me without a pipe.
    Just checked tracking it's on the truck out for delivery! Thank you God! I hope he gets here soon. I want to get some riding in before dark.

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

    I more or less finished rebuilding my first bike. I still have a few little things left to do. Like shortening the throttle cable, bar ends, aging the paint a bit for that patina look. Im working on getting rid of the chain tensioner, I have to grind out the drop outs alittle so i can add another full link to the peddle chain and run the wheel in the back of the dropouts. Im having a bogging problem that i believe is the clutch slipping with the crappy pads. so i have ordered some high friction material to make my own. I also ordered an 68 jet. Hopefully this will get this thing back on the road. Over all i am much happier with the way it is now than before.

    - Made some motor mounts to level out the carb
    - Added puch 70cc high comp head
    - Trimmed piston skirt
    - Strumey archer front drum with double walls and 11g spokes from husky
    - Pirate cycles billet intake
    - Pirate cycles hub adapter with 44t (i want a 40t)
    - Filter
    - Accel plug wire and boot
    - Modified springer front end
    - One piece SBP expansion exhaust

    Success. The foam filter stayed put over 27miles, and fuel mileage was normal at about 100/gal. Had a good time at the parks, got bit by a dog while resting at the dog park but it was a little wimpy dog and didn't even hurt. hahaha. Fun day.

    I do the Vicodin thing after I wreck. It usually doesn't affect my writing as much. I just can't find my front door.

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

    After a (sudden) stop, flop and roll, I am particular to Percodan. Not sure it helps with the pain, I have no clue as to any thing going on.

    The trying to stand and falling back down is a really bad feeling. I can't imagine a broken kneecap. Must take forever to feel right and work.

    Just a side note. Every one expresses them selves differently. Like Uncle Ron typing all in capital letters. He is not "yelling", contrary to any sort of Netiquette, just how one of us expresses him self.

    Really is interesting knowing all of you guys and reading different ways of explaining stories and how you did things. Some times my English skills are not real the greatest, but always in fun.

    (that and when you make fun of me, I throw stuff at the 'puter TV. NANANANNAa)

    edangel, I am sad to hear that you went down and got hurt really bad. I hope that you heal up fast and better than before the wreck.
    Hopefully your bike can make a full recovery too.

    Take care of that knee- they take ALONG time to heal. The misses has 7 screws in hers from an accident almost 8 years ago and it still bothers her.

    That sucks Angle hope you heal up real fast.

    I purchased Knee and shin pads for racing http://motorbicycling.com/showthread.php?t=29175. But I've grown accustomed to wearing my knee and shin pads all the time now. So far they have saved my knees once in a parking lot.

    OMG BROTHER, You really are the Wickedest one I know. Riding in below freezing weather, screws, plates and staples all up in yer knee. You guy's from Connecticut are certainly a tough lot.

    Woo Hoo, I got my 1915ish looking thing running today. Put 10 to 12 miles on it. It has a 79cc HF engine, jackshaft reduction, the only thing left of the donner bike is the rear triangle. It is geared to high though. Ordered some new gears for the reduction. I can now see what all the hoopla is about the 4 strokes.
