These televised auctions auctions are making it near impossible for the average Joe to own a classic. Everyone thinks their junkers are a pot o gold.
I’m setting up a pair of wax less (fish scaled), metal edges, 180cm xc skis to accept my soft winter mountaineering boots that are crampon compatible. That’ll be the set up for multi day winter hikes.If you're looking for mountaineering boot compatible bindings, maybe look for a pair of silvretta 500s. They don't make then anymore but I've used mine for many multi day trips hauling
Haha! Mine is the blue so it wouldn't match anyway
I've been looking for the left cover for 2 years, if you can't find a right ill buy your left. 😉 Fun little bike, I hope you can make it complete
For the off center, maybe the crank was rebuilt without the snap ring bearing on one side? Still I think there would be enough play between the piston and con rod to eliminate side load on the piston? Looking at the original picture is there a shiny bit on the ledge by the left transfer, that could be a point of contact. I'd try removing the piston and spinning the flywheel with the clutch
Are you running a resistor plug? Sometimes they act wonky with a non resistor plug.
The nut isn't backed off in this pic. The clamp should be pushing that so the threads don't get ruined. But like this .
Loosen nut until flush with end of threads. Put socket on round side that's bigger than cotter(if 9mm cotter pin use like 12mm socket). Squeeze with c clamp from socket to nut forcing the pin into the socket. Breaks it free effortlessly without hammering.
Before you tear the case apart. with the bike on the stand and cylinder off see if you can spin a full revolution with the starter clutch lever pulled, either by spinning the flywheel or spinning the pedals slowly by hand. If it goes all the way around it likely is your piston hitting something. You said it came in pieces so maybe the previous owner just grabbed any 38mm piston and not one mean
Spark plug acting like piston stop
The .75mm ring of aluminum that separates the rubber from the chamber is what would concern me. From what I've seen most o ring heads have much more material there, like 3mm plus. I have no doubt that an o ring can handle the pressure, but a piece of rubber that can withstand the temps produced in the combustion chamber? Just doesn't seem like enough material to protect the ring. Li
If I'm wrong then I'm wrong. But, if the manufacturer of that kit wanted an o ring there why did they include a head gasket and not a ring? My h2o polini kit came with a head gasket, which I sprayed and used with no leaks. No o ring. I tried an o ring head on a non liquid puch and it developed an air leak at the head. When I took it off the o ring was burned through in one small spot.
I'd be worried that an o ring in the inner circle would be too close to the combustion chamber and fail. I'd Spray the one you got with copper and run it.
Stop using ether, it will wash the 2t oil off the piston and cylinder. Test with a squirt of premix. Pull fuel line and open the petcock. If you have fuel it's in the carb. Clean it thoroughly. If not the strainer in the tank is probably clogged with rust.
Scenario 1... you go to school to learn to cast your own cases, spend years working in the trade and saving up enough to buy your own shop. Buy your own shop then make some sweet cases.Scenario 2... you order the cases from 77 today. Then wait. And wait. Get frustrated and contact them. Get told the products have shipped. And wait. And wait. Contact again. Demand refund...Maybe parts ship
Haha, it does sound sweet. When I finished my mondial with similar goodies and discovered it would wheelie on command, I was out playing in the driveway and almost went over backwards. So I hit the rear brake and come down hard. Well the handle bar clamps weren't quite tight enough and the bars rolled forward. Tightening the throttle cable to full throttle, the bike tries to take off from b
Exactly, it will enrich the mixture and slow the idle or kill the engine completely. Point it at your air filter and you'll see how the engine reacts
If it'll run with the choke on pop the flywheel cover and check the crank seal for leaks with propane. Though if it say with no trans fluid for 30 years that side is likely toast as well
Edit, just read some review that said 112mpg but then looking at more info,honda claims a much higher 158.
I think I want one. The reliability of a honda the size of a moped. 112mpg. Would make a great little "explorer"
I use a msr white gas bottle for a camping stove. I know this is exactly what you're saying you don't want to spend the money on but they're designed to last basically forever, rugged enough to throw around in a backpack and im 100% sure it won't leak. I can't say that about a bottle designed to sit on a shelf and then be discarded once empty. 20 bucks is well worth th
I did this to an old mini bike, fun as hell in 3 to 4 inches or on packed snowmobile trails but useless in anything deep
The best part about being Kenny powers... is being Kenny powers
I use jbots method too. The closed end of a large box wrench gives good leverage and you can be pretty accurate where you want your bends
To the dude.... I just wanna say that looks like a killer place for a barbecue!
No title needed for any vehicle older than 25 years. Which applies to most peds. Just need a bill of sale.
"Thats a North face 4 season tent not some shitty walmart thing."My tent that did this was also not some cheaper tent it was a Sierra designs 4 season. Funny all of my other cheaper tents have seasoned fine though the years.
