Thought of a better way to fix plug into motor
Moved screw holes outwards a bit and fitted stainless steel screws/washers to lock onto crankcase.
 I dug CB350 case out of shed and checked it fits, it does  ;)
I modified the plugs, they all weigh less than 2oz
This one is the lightest, 1.89oz.
 Could have gone further but didn't want it too thin

Yeah, pity it's on the inside where you can't see it.
 I have to get bike finished one way or another pretty soon, got date for second surgery on my arm, 27th April.
 It's MAJOR and will take at least 6 months to heal up  :(
 Also got another $713.00 bill from dentist.
Can't believe how they get away with this shit, no other industry can fuck up then charge extra to fix the mess they made.
 I'm a professional, if I make  mistake, I have to fix it at my expense (or at least the shop pays  ;) )

Had a really busy weekend working on 360, problem is, it wasn't mine  ;D
 bdn (http://www.meetup.com/Cafe-moto/) had a lot of noise coming from cam chain/tensioner after ride up to Deland during Bikeweek.
 Stripped motor and found tensioner bottom holder was broken, blade jumped out of holder and wore a nice ridge into adjuster 'horseshoe'.


There should be a 'tang' towards the right side which guides tensioner blade into position and also stops it falling out if chain gets loose.
 You can see the rough edge where it broke off (and also where the chain tried to saw through it  :o )
 

Missing the 'guide piece', wasn't inside the engine anywhere?
 The chain roller was also flat where it had rubbed on the tensioner arm

 
 Anyone who's stripped a 360 knows you have to split cases to fit a new one.
 Took about 10hrs to get stripped and rebuilt/running, could probably be done quicker but I had to keep explaining things plus, I fitted a new heavy duty cam chain from Z1 Enterprises while I was in there (got a 94 pin chain and shortened it to 92 pin)
 Sounds wonderful now, parallel side plates should wear tensioner very slowly so should be good to go at least another 30 yrs  ;D
 Swapped wheels and tank on mine so I can do some more painting, etc.

I've postponed my surgery, was due April 27th but I'm seeing surgeon on 4th May, want to find out if he's going to do rotator cuff at same time, I'm pretty pissed off that it's almost 19 months since accident
Fed up with high bars (stock 1974)
Went out last weekend, only a quick bimble about, but, bike is smoking worse on left cylinder, running really hot (275F with non-contact thermometer at clutch cover)  :(
So, decided to swap in the 'dyno' engine  8)
Then, while I was at it, cut a few brackets off, remove exhaust and re-paint it, modify headlight mount and, next thing, bike is a pile of parts  :D
 I got forks back in with the clip-on's I made, just about perfect fit with modified stock bracket.
 fitting 'Lucas' taillight with an LED bulb
Footrests are off so I'm going to make some spacers and fit the rearsets.
 Going to use a ready made seat base as I don't have time to make the one I want at present (with all the other stuff going on)
 Going to be a slightly modified CB360 as  I now have a second one titled so that's getting the major workover (maybe, one of them is getting it  ::) )
 I'll take some pics tomorrow

The government gets away with it all the time.  They are supposed to be proffesionals too.

Day started good, got bars mounted tight, holes drilled and wiring run through them, fitted exhaust system, messed with instrument mountings for way too long before I decided I'll have to make new bracket.
 Started cutting seat to fit frame 'nice' then the trouble started  :(
Using a mini chop saw blade from Harbor Freight in die grinder, (real good way to cut plastics) SLIPPED, big OOPS Fuck, I'm bleeding  ::)
Wrapped some paper towel around it and a bunch of masking tape so I could finish off seat though  8)
 Doesn't look too bad now but I think it may be pretty deep?
 Fitted real old shocks and wheel/tyre so I don't get any sparks/grinding grit embedded in the 'good' parts
 Not throbbing too bad so I took some pics  ;D
 Cut out clearance hump as I'm mounting seat a little higher, the white line on right side is where my finger stopped cutter blade  :o


The offending digit and instrument, 10,000rpm cuts real quick


The finished sides
