    Electric motorcycle

    Anything with a light frame setup would be a good idea too. Weight is the enemy of the electric motorcycle. More weight = more battery needed to get good distances, which = more weight and so forth....although batteries have come VERY far, the good ones cost you as much if not more than the...

    68 Yamaha YDS5-E

    Nixoid, I just picked up a 1967 YDS5 myself. It had a Bikemaster TruGel battery in it. MG14B-4 I have a manual but it's for the YDS3 and other models so I can't be of much more help. Since the OP is likely no longer around, and you brought this to the top of the list, hopefully it will...

    Cb350 stripped spark plug hole, use one size bigger plug?

    If the threads are .75 inches (3/4 of an inch) as I stated above in my post...then you have to get something slightly shorter than that per your post #9 above. As Teazer is saying, read everything that has been said, it's all in there for you. I even gave it to you in millimeters just in case...

    Cb350 stripped spark plug hole, use one size bigger plug?

    How bad are the spark plug threads? Missing altogether? Totally effed or just can't get a plug in straight? I've had success with this amazing Backtap...

    2x stroke street tracker - project coming together slowly.

    Oh, rock on. For some reason I thought I read something about replacing an overflow tube during the carb vent discussion. Disregard my comment :P Carry on man!

    Also, I'm not sure you want to remove the overflow tube and re-fit. They should be press-fitted into the bowl, which makes them likely to crack over the years of vibration. Just use MECHANICAL solder versus electrical solder, with some flux and they'll fix the cracks. I have to solder about...

    Take 2: CB750K2 Steampunk(ish) Bobber Thing

    That pearl is beautiful. Either way it's one hell of a neat build. Love the skill and detail.

    Out in a field Build ... XS 500 The Sock Monkey ( Finished pics ,video, )

    Open the drain screws on each carb and see which float/s may be stuck. Odd though,as all 4 would have to be stuck if fuel wasn't going in. (or 3 are full and the 4th is stuck) Could also be the gas tank vent. If clogged it acts like a pop bottle when you drink fast and don't let any air in...

    Post a pic of your latest purchase

    Nah, there's methods. I can pull them in about 10 minutes. Feel free to PM me if you want the nitty gritty on pulling and reinstalling them. I don't use the "ratchet strap" method. Also, when you go through them, the emulsion tubes are different front/rear, main jets MIGHT be different...
