in need of place to work on my bike tursday...
so I am not going to be able to get my bike tuned so i have made the executive decision to work on it myself... again. I have class all week and have a final to study for on thursday. but thursday at 2:00pm i will be starting the carb project. unfortunately i dont have a garage, or even a flat driveway to work on it. all i need is driveway where if i drop something it wont be lost forever, maybe a light(if i cant get it done before sundown) and a couple wrenches and screwdrivers(which i can probably borrow from a friend. if you can help let me know and i will be very happy, i'll get to go on my ride this weekend.

I've got a dry, heated garage, beer, and a ridiculous amount of metric tools to lend someone willing to ride to Independence. Also have a 2-carb manometer and all the tools to do fork maintenance. I'm a machinist, and my shop is a few blocks away if something extreme needs to be done.

Also willing to custom fab parts for cost of materials as long as it's not something insanely complicated and you don't plan to re-sell it, my labor is free to my forum buddies.

Hit me up! I love to wrench.

We gotta talk. My first homemade attempt at a GPR damper setup was less than perfect, but workable. I am not a machinist but I can scab things together well enough with my inexpensive tools what with a little wire feed and a magic press lathe Just need to watch the fingers It should be super easy with proper equipment and an operator.

Did you make the windscreen brackets on Xunal's EX? (NiNjA laser/CNC cut vertical ones)

Nah, I don't have an in-house laser. I WISH! Soon, maybe. For now I have a Haas Mini-Mill vertical CNC machining center and a Haas TL-1 CNC lathe, and a myriad of other manually-operated beasts as well as your standard fair like grinders, sanders, saws and the like. The lathe is still shrink-wrapped as our new shop is scheduled for completion next month, and we haven't begun to move in yet. Once we get moved in we will also have a functional sinker EDM for making various oddly shaped cavities and such (not much practical use outside of mold making, but still a cool toy).

And if I had made Xunal's brackets, they wouldn't be so messy I don't frak around when it comes to quality.

I have this. If you have problems with those pesky links on your chain that seem to be wiggling around, no problem. Lets weld them. Tired of having to tighten your spoke wheels, I can fix that too.

Wheel Balancer
I changed my rear tire on the Triumph last night and I'll be swapping out both tires on the Ninja next week.

Anyone have a wheel balancer I could borrow for about a week? Otherwise, I was thinking of buying the harbor freight wheel balancer (for the amount I'm going to use it).





Eureka!! Why pay 15 cents for a washer when you can just drill a hole in a quarter?

Seating a tire bead...
I replaced the rear tire on my Triumph. I got my old tire off, the new tire on and I haven't had any problem filling the tire and having it hold air. I filled it to 60psi, replaced the valve core and refilled it to 40 psi. I ran my finger around the outside of the rim and it feels like it's seated, it holds air with no leaks (soapy water test). However, the tire bead never did 'pop' when I filled it.

I've deflated the tire several times, pushed it off the rim and refilled it again with the same results, no 'pop'.

Does a tire bead have to 'pop' to set the bead?

I assume you are using a lubricant like soapy water? If so then you may not get a real "pop" upon bead setting. It is normal. It also depends on how fast you fill the tire, which is related to the valve stem size and air hose capacity etc. Once again, it is normal for a tire to set without a "pop". If it really bothers you crank up the pressure a bit, come on down and we'll fire up the two stage, I bet we can get a "pop" out of it


Just be careful with those new tires.

Does anyone have a drill press and/or the ability to drill holes in a precise location?

I'm rigging up a bracket adapter for my GPS and need some holes drilled through a 1/16" aluminum plate.

Drill Press
I've got one, and a complete drill set (#, letters, etc). If you have the bits marked and know what size you want the holes, I can drill them. If you want to bring them over, PM me for time and address.

I have a drill press - you are welcome to use it. I'm 12 miles from campus out 34 towards Mary's Peak, so unless you're up for a little ride, you might be able to find one closer to you PM me if you want to use mine, I'll give you directions.

Oh yeah - we have drill presses at B11 as well.

Local source for aluminum sheet?
I'm looking for a local source of aluminum sheet 1/16" thick. More specifically, I need a piece that's 3in by 3.5in. Bigger is fine since I can have it cut down to size.

I've checked Home Depot and Robnett's, but the closest they have is 1.5in wide bar stock.

Thank you kindly!
