......however, she has a prominent spot in the garage!
looks great Dan, those look very much like the bars I have on my orange bike now, so far I like them.
good insulated over-hauls gloves and some goggles and BAM........ youre good to go man....LOL!
Thats what I do when I get the itch and just have to ride, did it yesterday as a matter of fact... I dont ride much in the winter either, I live several miles from town out in the country so the F150 is much more comfortable.
Just got my new twist throttle now I got a problem with cable length is there any need for the elbow in the cable? I'm thinking about cutting it off with my dremel. Or is there any way I can use a different cable?
What frame is that? It's sweeeeeet!
Replaced easty strip China bolts with American made triple hardend bolts to mount my motor. Shes stayin! I pull my motor out frequently to adjust float because I can't get to it. Carb issue is over with, and cheap chiner bolts were to! My $75 Pocket Motor was going 45mph today in the wind. It climbs better up hills than 4 stroke Heshing. I love the fact I can push or pedal it with ease. Ready to take orders for easy install mounting kits with instructional video.
So I took off that elbow and boy am I lucky the cable is just the right length now. Just took her for a spin had trouble with the choke arm so I took apart the speed not carb filter to really tighten that but hopefully it doesn't come loose again. Also won 20 at lotto wheel of fortune at the convenience store wooot!
Now thats a seat..... i'll bet that is comfy..
Did you drill through the frame for your engine mount?
Im really, really enjoying the new feel of these bars just one downside, you have to really keep a good grip on them around here, we have really bumpy roads.
In other news, I chatted with Dave from Arrow this evening for quite awhile and wow what a nice guy! I had many questions and he really helped me out and offered up some great advice. To date every vendor and forum member Ive chatted with (and its a fast growing list) have all been really great folks.
Today Im doing final checks, and tomorrow will be departing on a 5-6 leg journey that may span about 50 miles, depending on the temperature at midnight
Watch out for those pesky deer.
Very true Dan we have lots of good down to earth folks here on forum and as vendors for all the parts and goodies.
Put my tank back on. No leaks. Been riding it for a little bit. Doesn't like the cold too much. Maybe that's my spark plug doing that. hehe
Carb is trying to disintegrate. argh
You need to up jet it for the colder weather.
Up jet it? As in more fuel? It was too rich! lol
Once it warmed up it was fine.
Took my bike to work this morn. Left @ 4am it was dark and cold. Left at noon and it was a beautiful clear Nov. day about 50 degrees. 7mile ride through pretty country, God I love my bike! Well - this afternoon- me and my buddy Steve swapped out his CNS v3 for an NT. Hands are still gassy. Success! an excellent day!
Hopefully good weather tomorrow I do a 30 miler round trip.
What did I do today?
Well I'm glad you asked!!!
My GT-5 and I broke 50mph this evening!
Both my front fender, and my rear fender vibrated until they broke, and my rear bracer went into the spokes, but it was worth it!
I rode past a PD radar box, and saw 48mph. So I made a few more passes, and made a few more carb adjustments. 52mph is now my top speed to beat!
I am beyond effing stoked!!!!!!!
Took a 20 mile reliability test ride on my recently mocked up gt2a-s, no problems. Rode right by two different parked police cars, no problems...
Pulled the trigger today on one of Neil Senior's balanced engines. Sounds like a good affordable upgraded block and a full review will follow as I prep and install it in The Pig II.
I went with Neil rather than Dax for three reasons:
1. Neil makes no false "made in America" claims.
2. Neil's motor is complete with top end.
3. Neil has a better price.
I've been thinking about a dax balanced bottom for awhile, but the need for a top end and the false advertising kept me from buying.
Neil's engine looks like a great deal!
Time will tell...
