Got involved a 3 car fender bender with me at the end. I hit a trailer hitch at about 5 mph, nothing scary though. Kept the bike upright, just stopped a bit quicker than usual :lol: But f#ck the person at the front that can't change lanes and keep driving forward at the same time...

Got the fender sanded and painted yesterday. Was able to get a free stella fender from Chance.

Couple hours later got the new fender on and was able to replace all the worn out rubber on the Bitubo suspension so my front end doesn't shudder anymore! yay!

Easier than I thought indeed, but I also had all the tools of ptown scooters at hand.

So got a bit done on the scoot in the past couple weeks in-between work and stuff.

With much help from Gearless and some trouble shooting with Spiderwebb got that damn CHT/EGT gauge installed. The ride back had me cruising at 55-60 with a CHT temp around 375-400f and EGT around 1075-1100f. The CHT temp would drop down or stay at 375 at WOT sustained for a fair amount of time which is nice I guess. There is a bit of a flat spot around 45-50 where the temp would go up to about 420 F. I've recently dropped my air mixer down to a 150 from a 160 so that may help the flat spot, but I haven't done a big enough run at speed to really tell.

Spiderwebb, did I leave my light for the gauge at your house? I can't find mine :cry:

Also put tractor light on so I can fit the BBQ rack on without smacking on the euro light. Got a trailer light on amazon for 8 dolla with shipping.

Put some fiberglass wrap on my JL pipe to help distribute heat on the L-joint in hopes of it being a bit more drivable when the pipe is warming up.

I've also picked up this manifold for really cheap that will fit the PHBH 30mm carb i'm snaggin from Gearless. I think it is a scootRS one, it puts the carb higher which should stop the destruction of the float bowl.

here is a cool mod to the intake "rubber"...

the one below is a fuel safe composite

the tuning blog goes into how some heavy carbs can bounce / vibrate off the manifold and this stops that = :)

1/2 way down is a nice picture of the locking screws...!!
