Its alive !! I bought a gasket off ebay and the pump still leaked like crazy. Went back to the original minus some metal spacer and no leaks. Now I need to order a long list of parts and pick up one of those plastic welders and get busy.

Chain and sprockets on the way. Antigravity battery?? thoughts or experiences with them? Thinking 8 cell.

EarthX batteries are the best LiOn batteries available. I have one in my ZRX and it's excellent.

No but they are tough and work like you hope they will. They have built in overcharge etc protection that most LiOn batteries dont have. Holds a charge better than any lead/acid I've ever used. Standard chargers work fine with it too. The built in protection is what I like. That and knowing it will last longer than a regular battery too.

I committed to the Antigravity range of batteries for my total loss system on my race bike. When mine dies, I will look at EarthX as the over-discharge protection is actually far more important to me than overcharging, since I have an Optimate charger that monitors overcharging. They don't seem appreciably more expensive than my Antigravity either.

The charging protection built into the EarthX is nice but not bulletproof. IMHO you need a volt meter and a fully functioning modern regulator to go along with it.

I melted one down when the regulator on my 1991 851 went bad. Expensive lesson to learn.

Progress!

I was looking into local powder guys for my wheels. Around 200-250 for a set of bike wheels, including all prep and materials. I figure thats about reasonable for a quality powder coat job. Just the same, I might try paint too, don't have to remove the bearings and you save a fair bit of cash.

Are you blasting them first or a sand and clean?

I am just sanding them. I actually built a small powder oven for this exact reason...wheels.
I cant seem to get it to work for some stupid reason. I need to get it going otherwise I just wasted money on something....again..lol. I may end up changing wheels at some point so Im not going to invest a lot of time and money in these stockers.

Is that the sprocket carrier? (last pic)
If so, looks like the bearing/axle spacer sleeve is missing?
