    carburettor woes

    Actually none of the jets are marked. The originals had no markings, or they wore off I have no Idea. the jets in the kits had none either. I used the original pri jets. It idles fine and revs off idle great, but between 2 and 3 K rpm it stumbles. I can get it thru the stumble and it seems to...

    rear brake conversion

    I've been riding for 50 years and there is no way a drum brake is better than a disk brake period. I will get it changed, I have the swing arm and all that is needed. I can and will weld the bosses on my heritage frame. thanks everyone.

    If you look close at pic two the two legs on the spring are different. Should they be this way?? When the downshift problem first happened I pulled the clutch and the shift shaft looked just like it does in the pic, one leg of the spring is actually unde the lever possibly limiting the travel...

    I had a chance today to look further into my shifting problem and found that the large spring that springs it back is bent I believe.

    Shakedown run

    I’ve had the bike out twice now, and limped home both times. Lol. First time it was the vacuum port caps left the scoot somewhere out in the country. The pic shows the fix to limp. Lol. Today it started running shitty and it turned out to be a crimped fuel line. The bike is still not...

    Transmission woes

    Maybe the clutch is the problem with the downshifting, but when the wheel locks in neutral I think the clutch might be out of the loop. When the wheel locks is stops dead mechanical like. and the shifting problem is also mechanical I think. After going down to third, which it does fine, the...

    Transmission woes

    when it locks, the wheel is what locks. it has done it with the engine running or off. after it wouldn't downshift the second time I tried to reposition in in my shop and it would not roll backwards with the clutch in and not running. it would only roll backwards after I removed the clutch.

    Transmission woes

    when trying to downshift to second it will not even shift down at all. and never got it in neutral after that. I removed the side cover and clutch assembly and can downshift it then.

    Transmission woes

    By locked up I meant while rolling backward in neutral it would lock up, but could roll it forward with no problem. the first time it did it was in first gear and rolling out of a driveway with the clutch pulled in. the clutch is new and works smooth. It took off fine and ran through the gears...
