* Laugh it up fuzzball

Refresh History
  • Maritime: Hmm, not sure I get it, the box has the backing plate, with 2 adjustable pickups and one black rotor that goes on the cam, didn't test if it was magnetic but I was guesing because it is slotted and has a triangle it was the magnet
    Jan 17, 2019, 10:51:28
  • Maritime: OK I google inmaged it. My rotor is smooth all around, you can't see the magnet, but I see in others it shows as a slightly different black circle, I'll look again to make sure under better light tonight and confirm
    Jan 17, 2019, 10:53:31
  • Maritime: But when I think of how the bike fires with points being lost spark, the Cam lobe only activates one set of points at a time so a single magnet makes sense
    Jan 17, 2019, 10:57:08
  • irk miller: If it's lost spark, then it would have two magnets.
    Jan 17, 2019, 10:57:59
  • Maritime: fires 1&3 then 2&4, then 1&3 then 2&4 again every other time the oposite cylinders fire
    Jan 17, 2019, 10:58:44
  • Maritime: Shit, I need to look again LOL
    Jan 17, 2019, 10:59:47
  • Maritime: Ok, I just looked again at timing instructions and the came has lobe 180 apart and so there has to be magnets 180 apart
    Jan 17, 2019, 11:02:00
  • Maritime: I was getting the cam messed up in my head with another points system I timed recently for a friend

  • JustinLonghorn:
    Jan 17, 2019, 12:19:05
  • advCo: LOL
    Jan 17, 2019, 12:20:25
  • advCo: Hopefully I get some time today to get that damn needle bearing removed. Ready to put that engine back together
    Jan 17, 2019, 12:22:24
  • Maritime: Good luck Nick. I know how that can be LOL. I need to get some damn sleep. took Sleeping pills last night and still laid awake all feckin night
    Jan 17, 2019, 13:06:13
  • advCo: That sucks. Tried melatonin?
    Jan 17, 2019, 13:32:43
  • advCo: Yeah if I cant get it out by heating and freezing then idk ill try to cut it out or just order another set of cases on ebay LOL

  • The Jimbonaut: Hey Mike I used to get pretty bad insomnia too - then found CBD.  Changed everything, sleep the sleep of the righteous now
    Jan 17, 2019, 13:52:04
  • Maritime: Melatonin doesnt work. Inshould try cbd
    Jan 17, 2019, 13:56:26
  • The Jimbonaut: Melatonin doesn't do it for me either, with CBD though it's lights-out-lizard
    Jan 17, 2019, 13:58:29
  • Maritime: where do you get your CBD?
    Jan 17, 2019, 14:32:28
  • The Jimbonaut: My wife has a prescription for medical.  But you should be able to get it through your provincial website or local store now that it's legal here
    Jan 17, 2019, 14:40:04
  • The Jimbonaut: Oil, plant - either work really well for insomnia.
    Jan 17, 2019, 14:41:07
  • advCo: You can actually get Melatonin infused CBD oil too
    Jan 17, 2019, 14:59:58
  • Maritime: I figured, the stores here likely have it. I'll research the dosage etc.
    Jan 17, 2019, 16:25:52
  • Maritime: My wife's lab does all the testing for it, she may have that info actually
    Jan 17, 2019, 16:26:24
  • The Jimbonaut: I know a fair bit about it - pm me Mike if I can help
    Jan 17, 2019, 16:52:21
  • advCo: Eat an edible and call it a day :D
    Jan 17, 2019, 17:00:06
  • The Jimbonaut: ^^ that'll do it

  • JustinLonghorn: HA!
    Jan 18, 2019, 07:59:14
  • JustinLonghorn: The mirror exploded. Damn close.
    Jan 18, 2019, 08:04:57
  • Maritime: Morning, thanks Jim. I'll pick your brain about it later
    Jan 18, 2019, 08:34:12
  • cxman: think that is covered by triple a?
    Jan 18, 2019, 10:18:24
  • Maritime: HA
    Jan 18, 2019, 10:25:10
  • The Jimbonaut: Morning all, question - would lightly brushing chromed handlebars (with scotchbrite for example) bugger them up?  Would they rust etc?
    Jan 18, 2019, 10:34:02
  • advCo: Shouldn't unless they are already pitted or rusty
    Jan 18, 2019, 10:51:43
  • Sonreir: I take 00 steel wool to my chrome all the time. Helps rub the rust off. :P
    Jan 18, 2019, 11:40:34
  • The Jimbonaut: jól sikerült! (score! in hugarian)
    Jan 18, 2019, 11:43:09
  • irk miller: I took scotchbrite to my /7 handlebars to give them more a stainless steel look.
    Jan 18, 2019, 12:30:59
  • The Jimbonaut: Nice.  I like the look of those Flanders bars Irk but, well, $.  Sure they're worth it though, but Emgo may have to do
    Jan 18, 2019, 12:37:02
  • The Jimbonaut: The Triumph repro "Western" bend bars they made seem to be discontinued
    Jan 18, 2019, 12:37:27
  • The Jimbonaut: So maybe their flat track bars will do instead
    Jan 18, 2019, 12:37:43
  • advCo: I had a set of emgo bars I put on that Kz250, they seemed like decent quality
    Jan 18, 2019, 13:20:52
  • The Jimbonaut: I think they'll be good enough.  I've read you can fill them up with expansion foam or something like that to dull vibration too?
    Jan 18, 2019, 13:50:37
  • Maritime: that or sand.
    Jan 18, 2019, 13:59:40
  • The Jimbonaut: Sand, booyah
    Jan 18, 2019, 14:32:31
  • advCo: dammit, its gonna be cold this weekend
    Jan 18, 2019, 16:21:43
  • Hurco550: they are calling for snow storms starting tomorrow. Everyone else was out getting groceries, and i was out getting what i needed to rebuild an engine haha
    Jan 18, 2019, 19:23:24
  • Hurco550: milk and bread.. pfft.. all i need is solvent, degreaser and a few bits of hardware haha
    Jan 18, 2019, 19:24:34
  • The Jimbonaut: I got a flat tire a couple of days ago, and now the car's sat in a big goddam snowbank.  That's got ball-ache written all over it
