The mistake you made was changing too many variables all at once. Now it could be anything when it was probably something as simple as a loose wire.
Your choke stuck cause it's probably an SHA carb that releases only at wide open throttle. Go ahead and try choking it again (without the bike running) and then twist the throttle wide open. The choke should release.
Time him on that same stretch the opposite way and deduct half the difference of both top speeds. That's his real top speed.No downhill, pffff
I can't wait to see the lock you fabricate for this bike!! Something like this simply CAN'T get stolen!
If size and comfort in fact equaled collectibility than the f150 must be more desirable than the volkswagon rabbit pickup. Personally if I was a auto collector i'd rather have the VW, even if I was 6' 2". Especially if the VW was mint. A mint f150.....boring.
I think I was up against the same obstacle a few years back. I ended up using a microphone stand or a piece of drum hardware and cut 2 short sections with a pipe cutter and used a piece of threaded rod. If you don't want the threaded rod to bend all to shit just stack up nuts under the pipe sections and tighten the whole thing down really good. Good luck bro!
Ken, I have to disagree. UPS & LTD magnums are all over the place...definitely not rare. I have the least interest in owning a magnum, they're that common. Cobra's are 100 times as collectible, especially blue ones in mint shape. Not that they're any better than a magnum that holds a heavier rider but as far as value and rareness the blue Cobra has it all over any magnum all day
That increase in intake volume is your bike breathing better. I use Boyesen reeds on my Peugeot's and I swear by them! Get them for all your bikes!
Not to pour gasoline on the fire but I've heard you can use a piece of rope as a piston stop. The argument has now escalated to a savings of $9.75 :)
The weird round cover with the nubby coming out of it is the stock Jikov air filter cover. I want the transmission/belt cover! How much?
I have what you need. Email me at email@example.com
That my friends is a Peugeot Angel. I'm not exactly sure if it's manufactured by Peugeot but I don't think it's tiawaneese.
Universal intake & exhaust adaptor wedgies so any pipe or carb can fit on any bike. And doubled rear sprockets with derailer/chain tensioners for hi and low gear shifting would be nice too.
I love my 70cc DR cylinder. It's rock solid but if I had it to do again I would go with a 50cc kit for higher revs so I can take full advantage of my variator. If you want to avoid changing everything out on your 103 I'd focus on a mild performance pipe and a better carb than the stock Gurtner, like a SHA or small PHBG. Skip the kit till you're ready to spend some big money on a rea
Nicely put, Rando. Someone needed to calm that guy down. I was gonna attach a Treats link but didn't want to get my head ripped off.
I tightened my footpegs, they were kinda loose. I pounded a dent into my centerstand cause it was rubbing on the back tire on one side and I mashed the rivets of my registration tag bracket cause that was getting loose too.Tomorrow I'd like to brainstorm options of mounting a camera on my bike.
Somebody's ready. I love the bags and the bars and the blanket and the buzzard on the bulb.
Temp gauges are nice to have. I don't care what anyone says about them. Of course they're unnecessary but so are many of the gimmicks people attach to their bikes. People rode horses for hundreds of years before the combustion motor was invented. Temp gauges are part of evolution, like it or not. For 40 bucks it sure brings much mystery into the light.
For ultimate results you should've gotten the perfect helmet then built the bike around it. I think the best looking riders are ones who've themed there bikes to compliment their existing accessories.I have a small collection of helmets I've found through craigslist ads, yard sales, eBay and my favorite, the local Salvation Army. If they actually have a helmet it's usually no m
My 103 with phbg has a 42 idle jet backed off one turn from all the way in. That's what works on my bike.
I'll wheel him out tomorrow and snap a few pics of my 103. I just wrapped him up within the last week.
Bullet style headlights a pretty popular. They have a mounting hole for your speedo and your speedo cable should be right length since it's mounted pretty much in the same spot it was originally.You could probably grind off a bit of the headlight ears so there's room for a set of clip-ons.
There must be a side cover that houses a clutch/gear assembly attached to the end of the crank and over to the rear drive shaft.
I know a temp gauge is not the answer but it sure brings a lot of dark questions into the light, especially for dummys. For example; If your top temp reads 280 chances are you're running super rich. If you're reading 450 or better it's a sign that you have an air leak and/or are under jetted. To the average mopedist a proper plug chop is much more complicated and less assuring than
It just makes scientific sense that the crush washer will not retain as consistent temps as not using it so I'm gonna continue not using it as preferred my the manufacturer. After all it's aluminum and hollow, much like cylinder fins that are designed to dissipate heat.
I like the playdoh idea but damn, spinning out the cylinder studs would make that job ten times easier.
Definitely get one for each kitted bike. These are known for going bad when messed with too often. If worst comes to worst, get at least a sensor for each bike and just swap out the display.
Wow, it must suck to have to put a full size plate on a nice clean build. For it to look good, it can't be an afterthought. Here in Massachusetts we have tiny little stickers.I make cool little brackets that bolt up behind the shock bolt. The bracket is slotted (as opposed to a hole) so all I have to do is loosen up the shock bolt and it pops right off so I can mount it on any unregistered bi
