Re: Rear Brake Problem

Another thing about the internet is: we as prospective helpers have no idea who we’re talking to, what their background is or how mechanically inclined they might be... sometimes we’re interpreted as “talking down” to someone as we try to make things as clear as we can... :oops: One more (simple) th...

I would expect the wind force to knock it down at any decent speed.

Re: Rear Brake Problem

Now that you say this, should the arm never go PAST vertical? Is this what SnakeOil was referring to by cam-over? Two different things... cam-over would occur inside the brake drum... if you removed your brake assembly from the bike and began rotating the arm eventually the brake shoes would be for...

Re: Rear Brake Problem

With the brake rod nut not installed... how much play do you have on the actuator rod before the brake pads engage the drum? Shouldn’t be much more than an inch of arc or so... When you have everything assembled and ready to ride... what is the angle between the brake rod and the brake cam actuator ...

Re: Drive Train knock

...a knock that increases with speed and subsides when you throttle off... Might be unrelated to the overly friendly guard rail... have you checked your donut? ...and the output fork on the transmission?

Re: First test ride after refit

Heat buildup in an air cooled engine (or any engine for that matter) will rob you of power... my guess is, we’re more susceptible than most to rapid heat escalation... Several years ago I witnessed this first hand during Spring in Moab... one of our members was out riding in the back country... bein...

Re: carrying spares and state inspection

No inspection in Montana... and we pay once (and a very reasonable fee at that!) for a permanent license plate...

Corona Bonus plans?

Curious as who’s gonna do what with their Pennies from Heaven... My ‘05 pickup could use a couple new engine parts and a set of tires... New mirrors for the Arctic (I’ve done all I can to keep the OEM ones functional)... Maybe I’ll install a bathroom in Julie’s new greenhouse... :? ...or... the heck...

Have you tried “Lilyhammer”... a witness protection, former mob hit man (Steven Van Zandt) playing in the snow in Norway... what could go wrong?
