Re: Drive shaft rub

I hear tell there's some washers and spacers in the drive train that can get installed wrong that could affect clearances?

Re: Snow Blowers

Local shop adjusted the transmission on mine to slow down some forward and get a faster reverse. Stock setup was extremely slow backing up. Of course, best way to deal with snow is not having to deal with it. Ways around the stuff even up here in Michigan. Porch here has heated mats as needed and ev...

Yup ... three stage. Nothing short of nuclear winter's gonna slow one of those down.

Re: Snow Blowers

Nice to see some other track drives here. Big advantage for gravel and grass as you can adjust the plow height an inch or two up and just ride on the tracks. Got my first one (Honda HS55) back in the '80's and drove it to death doing a couple hundred feet of gravel driveway and walkways. Finally die...

Re: Ebay find. Harmonizer.

Just went down to $29.95 ...

(Oh, wait ... that didn't last long. Looks like he got another clue.) <G>

Somewhere in the middle I guess. Any idea what it's actually worth?

Re: Need help to identify some parts I can't recognize

Had it running yet? I'd expect your carbs are varnished pretty bad if the fuel is that old. I'd also plan on flushing the tank - even regularly used, it's amazing the amount of crud that will find it's way into places it shouldn't oughta be ...

I got a TwinMax too, but prefer the Motion Pro. Either works well, but I found the TwinMax to harder to get a good read on. Sticky slides maybe ...

Re: Ebay find. Harmonizer.

For that kind of money, I'll stick with my Motion Pro carb sticks. Mine's a four carb unit, so I can do two Urals at a time! ;-} PS - I thought I'd miss sucking mercury fumes off my old sticks when I over-revved, but not as much as I thought I would ... In the meantime, for folk who really really ne...

Re: Mirror adjustment

I doubt those bar end mirrors would clear the stock car shield though ... I got a set of the smaller round ones and had to drop plans for adding one on the right side. Maybe the risers make a difference?

Re: New K750M (Or something made to look like one) owner

The white grips are what sold me on it ... <G> DO pay attention to all the rubber on something that old, especially if it's been sitting. I picked up on an older machine several years back - stock rubber on it, and it looked good. 100 miles later, sidewalls were cracked all to hell and looking to bl...

Re: Retro Seat Attach Plate Weakness

Harley police seat with some "donor " brackets cobbled from the junk pile. Seems to work nice and gives me a good height and distance from the bars.

Re: Pedal Power - Bikes, lets see them!

A fun ride before I couldn't ride it anymore ... ;-{ http://www.brainfartz.com/images/Motorcycles/radrover-trestle-park.jpg Fat tire, so it was like a Ural when it came to handling snow. And yes ... it's an eBike, so I only had to pedal as much as I wanted to. Either way, perfect for a morning ride ...
