I realized that I need another reliable bike. After surveying the basement to see what was the "most complete" I decided to finally put the 103 together.
Yes...that's a seat belt holding on the seat. Don't ask me why...it came like that. The reed valve set up is so small. Each little hole opens up to about 8mm. Extremely limiting the bike.
At some point I'd like to put the 19mm intake on that I also got in the trade. I'd also like to toy around with the stock reed set up and see how far I can open it up and cut my own reeds. For now I'll look for a set up via treats, including a different intake. They're pretty reasonably priced. I'll probably just run a 14/12 dell for now. This will hopefully help with reliability...but then again it is French...
In other news. This happend to Mark Ryan this weekend. He seized his hobbit, took apart his engine and found this...
That straight thing in there is not a paper clip or a staple...its his cir-clip completely straightened out. SCREW THAT!
