Re: Using rear axle to remove rotor. What's the trick?

The basic functionality of the puller is torquing in the bolt to pull the rotor of that way. Sometimes it just works that way, but you must not overtorque the thread. Proceeding is that you first torque in the bolt/axle to a still acceptable torque. If the rotor does not move, then hit the bolt at ...

Using rear axle to remove rotor. What's the trick?

It's really stuck on there. I'm hitting it with a big rubber mallet but I'm afraid I'll bend the axle. I've read about you guys using this method and saw a video even but didn't see/read of anyone having as much difficulty. So I just keep banging away till it cracks? Should I try not to hit it too h...

Why does my light switch have 3 positions?

The middle one does nothing. Is it supposed to be 'off'? I'd like it to be. If not, anyone ever wire it to be off? Off quick glance it looks like you'd run a couple wires from the ignition over to the left handlebar to the switch then maybe I do some soldering? Or just already-made handlebar fitted ...

If it snapped wouldn't I be able to pull it out from the top? It's pretty solidly held in there and I don't imagine the outer cable is pinching it somehow. Thanks

Speedo suddenly stopped working.

I only found wheel removal instructions in my Clymer manual. I also learnt from another thread from a guy with the same bike that my problem could be the gears at the wheel which I assume that is what my problem is but idk for sure or if there's a possible solution before taking things apart. But I ...

Re: Almost starts with accel pump but won't stick

Hey, np, I got it d so figured out. Carbs needed a decent cleaning. That's all. And yes I did the seals and lapped the valves on the head. Thanks!

Almost starts with accel pump but won't stick

WOT keeps it going a bit too but barely It had been sitting for months, like 6 before I finished replacing the cylinder head with a used one I cleaned up and just popped in. It was running fine before with pods. I just ruined a spark plug hole. I've got 120 +/- psi compression I've got spark and app...

So you are right.

Cam and crank shaft marks lined up but not cam sprocket punch marks.

Does it matter? I can't imagine how. I've got the "t 1-4" on the crank and the mark on the right side of the cam shaft lined up with the indent in the head there lined up together. I'm guessing the punch marks on the sprocket are just additional marks to help somehow but my sprocket I happ...

Re: How does the engine perform between rich vs lean?

K&N's usually shift mixture towards lean but your plugs look really all right. With air filters like that placed on positions shown in your pictures pressure conditions at your carbs might become strange, especially when you operate the throttle. Things may even depend on the positions of your ...

Need to fix a spark plug hole thread. Need correct specs

I don't know if there is a standard for motorcycles or something but I've gathered they're smaller than for car/truck plugs so I'm just trying to find the right general thread repair kit. I'm going for a heli-coil kit cuz their particular tool allows for lateral clearance for deep narrow circumstanc...

Re: How does the engine perform between rich vs lean?

What I notice most besides high rpms struggles, if it's not the same problem is this cooler(SWFL temps) starting stumbling /stalling upon rapid throttle action. Check out my plugs though 20190307_005431.jpg I thought they'd be darker but apparently I'm running lean. I checked these right after a col...

How does the engine perform between rich vs lean?

I have two situations where it struggles a bit, 1, before engine warms up, and 2, in particularly warmer, 70+ farenheit tempuratures, as I've noticed when it's colder I barely notice any performance issues... which come down to hesitations with higher rpms or rapid throttle action. If I turn the thr...
