awfully quiet in here.

not much talk going down in here for the last week or so? What's your excuse?

Too busy working on your bike?

Your bike is done but not nearly as fast as you hoped?

You don't wanna talk about your secret weapons?

Re: awfully quiet in here.

These two:

Re: awfully quiet in here.

Re: awfully quiet in here.

sue the answer to those last 3 is so simple. Do you need me to spell it out?

Re: awfully quiet in here.

sure, spell it....I think i have an answer too

Re: awfully quiet in here.

24 mikuni flatslise and matching intake. My buddy hit 69.7 with his metra mikuni set up. I hit 70. If you are hitting those speeds with the dellorto you are right there. That kit LOVES a mikuni.

Re: awfully quiet in here.

Re: awfully quiet in here.

Do it sue!

Re: awfully quiet in here.

school and bikes being a general pain i put the fa 50 in time out. actually i put the motor in the hands of a pro,ish and the passport runs i just need to attach my brake and up jet. little things that are turning out to be a pain. do they ever get easier?

you guys were right, 19 dell is a thriller on 65 metra. but my crank on the flywheel side got stripped so we had to re-thread it until i can get some money together for a new one. yeeeeeeep-er

Re: awfully quiet in here.

What crank were you running? What was was the culprit?

bikes are fixed!

Re: awfully quiet in here.

i've been working on everyone elses bike but mine, 2 days to solve moby mystery's yes.. or its ppls champ or if that doesn't work, the honda passport for the rally.

Re: awfully quiet in here.

I've been, and still am breaking in my athena 50. Took a nice longish ride with Motion Left tonight, that helped. I need smaller idle jets to dial it in.

Re: awfully quiet in here.

I too have been working on evryones bike but mine. I have honestly rode it about 10 miles since Chicago rally. I don't even care. I cannot get my girls bike to spark. Jeff and I were trouble shootigfor about 3 hours. I am gout to swap the stator now. Only thing left. I hate mopeds. Kind of.

Re: awfully quiet in here.

I just had to swap a stator, after messing with the timing for 2 days. Actually it's the best parts from two electrical systems combined. Total headache.

Re: awfully quiet in here.

Mine should be coming together this weekend with tuning being done early next week. I'm waiting on that korado bottom end to get here saturday, whatchuknowabouthat.

Re: awfully quiet in here.

Do you think I can get my engine on the airplane????

Re: awfully quiet in here.

wtf? sue your coming out? sweet! any other ML's

Re: awfully quiet in here.

I would imagine so; if you drain out all the gas, and oil. Clean it up and out. Put a strap on it, and you could probably carry it on; otherwise pack it in your luggage.

Re: awfully quiet in here.

New stator should do it. I had the same thing going on with my Motron and couldn't for the life of me figure it out. I could get it to spark every GREAT once in a while and then it wouldn't. Put the new stator in and sparkle motion was instantaneous.

Re: awfully quiet in here.

Stripped an exhaust stud hole out of my Polini kit while battling an exhaust leak. I think it had been hanging on by a couple of threads for a while, which is why I couldn't get a perfect seal. got my helicoil kit and took apart the top end last night. Need to drill out the old hole, retap, and insert the helicoil threads. Then the process of cleaning the cylinder, cutting new gaskets, putting the 4 petal back on and sealing it up tight, reassembly, etc. Pain in the butt for such a little problem like an exhaust leak.

Re: awfully quiet in here.

The fact that I'm completely OCD about shit doesn't help either. What I described would take some people a couple of hours. It will take me a couple of days.
