Is this fixable? It appears to be aluminum, any way to possibly get it welded back up?I know Treatland sells throttle assembly's but that's 40 bucks I'd rather not spend.
Well that is terrible news. Doesn't seem like the most robust design... sigh.To be clear, there shouldn't be any movement in that stubby pipe? I have to take a closer look at the area around where it connects, maybe some muffler putty around the exterior would keep things sealed. I didn't look too close for leaks up that far, once I found that small hole. If I can feel any exhaust
I didn't think an exhaust leak could be causing an idle condition. It seems to be in pretty good shape, visually.I took off the header pipe and was surprised that it wasn't a flange at all. There was a stubby pipe fitted somehow (couldn't actually determine how it was fitted) to the exhaust port, but it did have a slight wobble to it. The head pipe was a slip fit to the stubby pipe.
Bought an unknown year Sachs Westlake moped recently, runs pretty good but can use some TLC. In particular the exhaust is pretty loud. There was a decent sized weld line at the transition from the header, so I figured the PO removed the baffles.Taking off the silencer section of and looking closer I found that the muffler is actually a Harley dynaglide muffler that was welded up. I believe it'
Last one is pulling on the opposite leg out and up, causing the inner leg to go in and down. The stand itself doesn't appear bent.
I can tilt the stand enough with it folded up to get clearance, but its really just rotating within the clearance of the pivot bearing slot, not actually causing any deflection of the cap/clampy
I should have mentioned that, I did unbolt it, and other than the cracked stop on one side, the stand itself appeared to be symmetrical and not noticably bent. It was really filthy, so cleaned it up and freshened the grease and put it back together. I had been hoping there was some slight adjustment in the cap/?clampy? (not sure the correct term) that hold the stand pivot section in place. But not
I recently picked up a 77 Puch Newport that I had been told was sitting in a garage since the 80's. A new petcock and some carb cleaning has it running pretty good, but the right side pedal (bike chain side) is making contact with the kick stand while it is folded up.Before I take an angle grinder and hack off the interferring material on the leg of the stand, I figured I should inquire if th
