Re: Valve head gaskets/ cylinder honing?

Do compression check before you tear it apart and see what the numbers are first. Also drop some oil in the cylinder and check it again and see if it rises. It will tell you if the valves are leaking or the rings. A leak down test will give some direction as to what needs fixing. :)

Chad that looks like a mouse was chewing on that switch, are those little teeth marks around the edges? :)

Re: Notice from Rich's Cycle Upholstery!

It saddens me to hear this Rich, I wish you all the best and hope you the Doc can help you. I have several of your awesome bits for my rig and they really make it more comfortable and functional. The tonneau cover you made for me is ten years old now and still looks and works like new. Best of luck ...

Re: Deep seated noise in tappets (?)

If all other carb adjustments have failed to solve the problem don't forget to check the enrichener control on each carb as well. Remove the enrichener assembly and verify that the rubber seal is still OK and sealing the circuit off when the knob is pushed in. If it is worn it will let fuel pass and...

Re: power loss

My first guess would maybe be the ignition switch or wiring in the headlight perhaps shorted momentarily. Check inside the headlight and make sure all the connections are good and no wires are rubbing on anything. :)

Re: Installing Lower Mud Guards with Fairing

Not only do they keep the wind & rain away from your legs but also push air down and around the cylinders helping them cool more. :)

Re: Vacuum petcock repair < $30

:rant: Vacuum petcocks have destroyed many engines, it is a terrible price to pay to save a second to turn a real petcock on. $30 manual petcock will buy you peace of mind and save you $3500 when your motor locks up someday when that junk fails again. It's a no-brainer folks. It's not that difficult...

Re: Whaddyathink about these bits?

Those bits look very familiar, I would guess the oil slinger has come off the crank and is slowly coming apart as it spins about freely. If that is the case you will have to replace the crank. Hope for you it is not the problem. :(

It really looks like a Puch SGS, though

I think we have a winner here ... I would have guessed a Bridgestone myself.
Bridgestone, Thank you, that was the brand I couldn't think of. As a little boy I would go down to the store and stare at them and all the other cool stuff. :cheers:

Re: Noise in Gearbox (?)

The original engines made about 26HP so the spline shafts and clutch plates were OK to handle that load. Now with 40+HP and more weight the small diameter shaft & splines are at their limit durability wise. Shorter life is to be expected unfortunately. I was lucky to get over 80,000 km on mine befor...

Re: Tall Man and His Mystery Motor Scooter

"Allstate" comes to mind, Sears had a store in our town back in the 60's and I would go there and look at all the bikes & motorcycles but for the life of me I can't remember the brand they used. :)

Re: URAL CLUTCH NOISE

The clutch arm should not be hitting the speedo cable. That arm is bent wrong or one of the bad ones. The clutch cable should be going straight from the cable end to the arm with plenty of clearance to the speedo cable, something is really wrong there. :? There is a good chance that if this has been...
