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

    On a ride to the store last night my chain almost skipped off the sprocket! So, I pulled a full link segment, as there was way too much slack with the new tensioner. Now it's looking good! I also put the pulley on the tensioner on the other side and reversed the brackets, so it's able to guide the chain on the sprocket, but without the angle.

    Very pleased with my new chain breaker - it's designed for 520, but works well enough to punch a pin out halfway, then I can use my standard bike chain breaker to push it through the rest of the way.

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

    Not much... Cleaned up my "garage" area in preparation for my new engine. Gonna pull pull the piston, put the jug on and take pics for you guys. Then pull the clutch, throttle, motor and wait for UPS. I'm tired of pedaling my wife's 26"

    Has anyone noticed after having motorized that you tend to pedal around faster?? Its like i cant pedal slow... and i shift MUCH better.

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

    OK- I took the slant 50 out again today- as I mentioned two pages back- it was bogging down a little the last couple of miles the day before-

    I pulled the plug- looked a little bit oily- been running oily for breakin

    so I took it over to the convenience store and added $.50 of mid-grade gas (1/8 gallon)
    and no more oil-

    It ran great all the way today- better than ever- so I don't think I'll be worying over any new carb soon

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

    Got my 49 cc today and started to pull it apart to put on the SBP head studs and noticed the top of the jug is un-machined :/

    Is that the way 49's are? I don't like it if it is. Will be spending a bit of time sanding it flat, no more.

    I'm selling my PA and I'm sooo tempted to get a Morini....

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

    So how much fuel was in the tank, before you added more gas? What is your fuel/oil ratio now?

    I got my lights hooked up today, I went to wally mart and bought two flashlights for $4.00 bought a pack of 6V bulbs for $2.00 and modified the rear to have a red reflector for a tail light. I also installed my switch in the end of my hand grip. The switch is the push button end off an old 9 led flashlight that didn't work anymore. going for a night ride tonight.

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

    Talked t o Worksman today about the front brake hubs and rims they are still saying it will be at least 10 days before they are available. Besides the fact they got some of their machinery sold off by a broke supplier now customs is holding their shipment... I have 3 customers waiting not to mention myself for these rims and hubs...

    Other than that I rode yesterday till my CNSv1 cracked below the clamp and blew off... Luckily I have a coupler of spare bodies. I think I am going to drill through the body at right angles to the clamp and put in some 10-24 allen head set screws into the intake and seal the threads with some indian head to take the pressure off of the clamp itself...

    Shhh! hehe ;-}
    Gasbike and Kings are the same thing, owned by Nationwide Access, LLC.

    I can live with buying a new carb and putting in gaskets when I get this kind of discount:

    ------
    Hello KC Vale,

    We (PayPal) have concluded our investigation into the following claim:

    Seller's Name: Nationwide Access, LLC
    Seller's Email: [email protected]
    Seller's Transaction ID: 3KS42904F2*********

    Transaction Date: Mar 23, 2011
    Transaction Amount: -$177.80 USD
    Your Transaction ID: 5PX06521*******
    Case Number: PP-001-262-***-***

    Buyer's Transaction ID: 5PX06521*********

    The seller has agreed to your requested partial refund amount.

    Thank you for your cooperation.

    Thanks,
    Protection Services Department
    -------

    They shipped a 2010 48cc Skyhawk with a CNS66 carb and not the CNS48 carb it should have, and it had no head gasket installed.

    My 'partial refund amount' was $77.80 back from a $177.80 price.
    I'll take those full 2010 kits delivered for $100.00 all day long.

    As for what I did to MY bike today... Not a damn thing.
    I haven't even sat on it since AZ death Race. That is the drawback of always having another in the shop to build and test ride.

    Then again, all I have been building of late is Jackshafted nice rides so it is nice to see how they compare, like this one I am on now.

    This one is about done. It has CNS carb bogging problems, no surprise there considering the angle, and it still needs my wiring upgrade and button down, but she starts and mechanically sound ;-}
