    Unbolted the engine to remove the rubber on the frame...WITHOUT DISCONNECTING ANYTHING ELSE.

    Yes, I am just that bossly. Seems to have helped vibration.

    Also rode it past some cute girls that were walking their bikes up hill, I was doing only 20 at the time as I can't run WOT. Carb works fine unless you hit too many bumps or run it at WOT at high speeds, then it pops off. :D

    *edit*

    Oh yeah, and I facking burned my leg on the engine. >: (

    Got a GoPro hero 3 camera.

    Decided to take it out on a quick run now that the bike runs really good (fixed the alignment issue on the jackshaft so now it doesn't keep breaking the chains)

    I took the Pig out for awhile today. First real ride since I had my problems. Very nice!
    My Pig fired right up with a tiny tickle and ran like a sewing machine (bolted to a jackhammer) and I rode around until I had blown all the dust off and went home happy.
    :)
    Every day above ground is a GOOD day.

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

    It's a really fun bike. I've used the SBP pipe before, but this was the one from arrow which fit the bike alot better than the SBP pipe does.

    BIG tip though, splurge a bit and get some GOOD single speed chain for the jackshaft to crank chain.

    I've used the chain it comes with, but ultimately ended up snapping it several times. (basically once it snaps the first time, it's only a matter of time until it snaps again)

    The chain i got is much thicker than normal. I'll find the box and find out what type it is.

    I checked my spark arrester screen on my Tanaka bike, and changed from the foam element I made, to a square cut from a busted window screen. I ran it before with ACE bandage screens, and it worked well. The foam made it quieter, so I saved it in the cargo box. I'll see if it runs any better/faster with the screen filter vs. foam filter soon, next time I run it. [​IMG]

    Dang, Sorry to hear that. I've also had 2 heart attacks, along with congestive heart failure, COPD, Diabetes, High blood pressure and I'm sure a couple other things I'm forgetting about. So I know the spirit will prevail and he'll be up and riding in no time.

    I just saw that he IS up and riding. Way to go Maniac.

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

    I cleaned out my storage shed and found a dusty purple motor bicycle. Lol. My wife hasn't ridden it in forever. She rides about 1x a year, then complains about the heat or the cold the rest of the year and goes back to watching the tunnelvision set.

    I told her last year if she didn't ride it, I was going to paint it hunter green and ride the wheels off it, or rob the motor and put it on my 26" BMX bike.
    (which is of course, hunter green and sandy clay brown)
    I camouflaged it today with a roll of real-tree style duct-tape (buy 2 if you're doing an adult bike). I put a set of Nashbar Elevators or cycle-pro swiss armies on it (street hybrid tread). I tried it with some DH tires I shaved the knobs off of. It was a great ride, but they're heavy. The DFD tension straps were too short to lift the roller off the tire (cut for 1.75-1.95s, not 2.35 lol), so I went to lighter, smaller tires. Still looks good.

    Lol its all good. I just seem to remember on the SBP site that the KMC chain they include was labeled as being "heavy duty" but I could be wrong.

    You can get the hd chain from staton-inc.com for $1.49 per foot. Best price I've found so far.

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

    Adjusted the rear brake. It works now. Half the one pad wasn't even on the rim during braking. Gapped my plug to .025. Bike doesn't run as well now. Runs rich actually. I had it at .035. Gonna try it at .030 when it cools down.
