So what do all of us have on the clipboard for winter projects? Post what you want to do, what you might do, what you would like to do to your bike. Just generally shoot the shit and throw some ideas out there.
So Koot was the stroker all that you thought it would be? Did you expect a little more power or was it about what you hoped to get out of the stroker kit?

well man,,it goes pretty good,now that im used to it more it feels the same as my 74",im still gonna be playing around with it,i fucked with jets and this winter im gonna change the rear sprocket from a 51 tooth to a 49 and see how that works for me,,it seems the motor is really smooth until a higher rpm,,well even than its not bad,its way smoother now that its breaking in,but it had me concerned at first it really seemed like a shaker to me....,but for this winter ive got to get a couple of more belts and change a motorshaft seal,coz some oil on the belt cost me some teeth when i tried keeping up to big cliff on his 127"ultima.... gots some work to do on the 45" to tend to also....So whats on the clipboard for winter projects  Sledding002

So whats on the clipboard for winter projects  Empty Nature of the beast

Post  coopsta on Wed Oct 31, 2012 8:58 pm

Yes I guess its the nature of the beast to shake a little bit, I noticed some vibes on high rpm ass well. Suppose you don't get one without the other......why do you run the belt when a chain primary is so much less trouble? I see that it would make adjusting the clutch much easier and for taking off the primary but any leakage at the sprocket shaft seal and the belt leaves you on your knees?
Coop

Oh ya Denn, I heard you were going to be buggering with the rockers. Did you get the tick isolated yet or just in the process. I have a brand new set of rocker arms in a bag if you need some?

You using the 13" shocks for better ground clearance sunny?
Nice work on the home made clutch tool. Can you enlighten me on the mods to your rear fender? Is that a sissy bar modification?

Koot, Larry told me he's got a couple rounds hangin on the wall Idea
Coop, I needed a couple more inches...as usual. Edit....I fabbed that "Little Wing" outta sheet metal, am gonna build a custom sissy bar for it this winter...used an FX fender as base.

I thought about getting new rockers, Carlos.After I get into the boxes and see what the valve end of the rockers looks like,I'll know whether to rebuild or replace them.Hoping it's just bushing wear causing the noise.The endplay was decent when I had the heads off last winter.I just may take you up on the offer.

Coop.
How much you askin for the rockers?Thinkin I want to replace the mismatched ones in my boxes.
I cleaned all the thick oil outa the arms and found the rear set were loose on the shafts.There is a slight contact mark in the rear box from the rocker.Think that could be the ticking sight.The spacers and shims in there show heavy wear marks.So i've got new spacers,shafts and left side nuts & washers ordered.Have to find some .005 and.010 shims.My local parts fella couldn't find any in his books.

Post  coopsta on Tue Nov 13, 2012 9:44 pm

Den there should not be any shims in your rocker boxes? You can adjust the end play by taking a few thou off the spacers so they pull the shafts a little farther in. You can do it with a drill but any one you know with a lathe or a local machine shop will do it for a case of beer.

I know about countersinking the spacers.I've got new spacers coming to replace the old grooved ones in there.Don't have much faith in machine shops around here.Last one that I used cost me a set of S&S heads.I'll see what endplay is there w/ all the new pieces and thendecide .Been running shims in there forever and never had a problem.

Whats on for winter projects...where should I begin, gotta rebuild my 93, even tho it was supposedly built last year( yea right!), gonna install a Pro cluch( diaphram) or a york which is a Teds Rivera rippoff but its about 150 bucks cheaper, gotta install a belt drive and pull all mounting studs outta the tranny and reinstall them proper(leaking). Also got to put new return springs in my rear drum cause it aint releasing properly( only used front brakes mostly all last season cause I was too lazy to pull the wheel off and replace them. Also got to check, drain and refill front forks. I think thats about it but you know how it goes.....

Winter is certainly here, and since I felt guilty today after being OVERserved by some cantankerous pricks on Friday nite drunken I decided to do some work today in the man cave. I touched up a scratch on the fender, wet sanded and cut polished the fender after that. Then I mounted my pillion seat on Little Wing (the fender) and then tackled the broken exhaust bracket that has been haunting me.
I will post pics in a bit. sunny

While waiting on my new rear tire,I decided to make a few functional cosmetic changes to the scoot.
First : I removed the floorboard mounted pass. pegs and added some vintage extensions.Then I added some matching floorboard rubber to them.
[img]So whats on the clipboard for winter projects  New_fl12[/img]
[img]So whats on the clipboard for winter projects  New_fl13[/img]
Next : I beefed up the rear mount for my 2-up seat.I've been hose clamping the seat to the rack.This seat mounts to the tourpack rack through a hole in the center rail.Most racks w/ this hole are cracked or broken out.There's a stock piece that should go under the rail to bolt the seat to.The only metal thick enough in my piles was a short piece of railway track.I cut the length that I needed off the top piece of the track. Then filed it to fit,drilled 2 holes and fit it to a rack that I bought at the Tsawassen swap last year.You can see the end of it in the pic.The cross bolt holding the rack parts together also runs through the reinforcing piece.

So whats on the clipboard for winter projects  Empty Chain Problemo!!!

Post  Dennman on Tue Jan 29, 2013 9:00 pm

Decided to clean my chain in place on the scoot .Thought that I had a riveted master link, so didn't want to screw w/ that.I'm brushing w/ kero and just about done and looky there a clip master.Closer look and WTF!!! The back piece w/ the pins is missing 1/4 of the plate. Shite!!! remember thinkin a clip link would be the better way to go if I needed to remove the chain while out on the Tour. It's hard to get another clip link anywhere for an X-ring chain.Fought to get the clip off (destroyed the clip) and remove the master.Ida never got it off on the road!!! In the process I see another link w/ a crack from pin to outer edge.Solves the problem w/ trying to find a clip masterlink.New chain w/ rivet master ordered.This is the second EK X-ring chain that i've cracked links on.Last one was just about every link.Going w/ a DID X-ring this time.$175 + tax.Might get it cheaper if I can get the tire at the same time and pay cash.
Also going to replace the copper inserts that I put into my rear Banana caliper.Ratman has machined me up some inserts .They're similar to what Shoveljockey's dad ,Jerry ,made for his.Not exactly the same size but same idea.

Nothing ever is easy workin on the scoot.While pullin the cracked chain w/ another chain linked to it, I lost the link holding them together.Spent an hour w/ a mirror and light trying to find it.Wigglin around under the scoot and there it is-laying 2 ft. behind the swingarm and under a chair.Relieved that I found it free and clear.It's been +6 -- +9 for a few days here.Not bad workin temp.
