Ct. Rally was great. Sorry your dumping your MB. However a good scooter is 100x mor dependable. These MB's are good for someone like me, that doesn't really care if it breaks down. It is just a hobby for me. However my bikes seldome break down.
Yes that is my BOARD TRACKER and it runs sweeeet.
Thanks for that info James. I don't think I'll make the Conn rally. When is it? I actually just posted a thread about selling my kit. I'm seriously considering buying a scooter. I love that board track racer...is that yours?
I believe that the intake bolt is 6mm. That is big enough that the risk is fairly low.
Machine shops usually don't bother with such a small job. Any garage or motorcycle shop should be able to do it for you. If you lived nearby, I'd be glad to take it out for you.
PS: Are you going to the Ct. rally?
Yeah I've seen bolts tapped and drilled before but this one is so small that I would be very leery to try to tap it out myself. I might have to take it to a machine shop to have it done. i wish I never added the new pipe and carb because my bike was running flawlessly before I messed with it.
If the bolt is broken off flush with the head, you will need to drill down the center of the stud and use an easy out (screw extracter). Use a center punch before you start to drill.
My bike is out of commission right now. The both that holds the muffler in place sheered off and now I have ot figure out how to get the bolt thats stuck int he head, out of the head so I can put a new one on. Ugh!
Was wondering if you were going to make the Ct. and / or the Pa. rally. Are there any other rides comming up that you intend to make?
Seeing as how you are in the Boston area, I was wondering if you know anyone who repairs or is knowledgeable about small engines? I'm having an issue with my tanaka 40cc engine and I am not the most mechanically inclined individual. I need some expertise.
Any help would be appreciated.
Rusticoray will probably know of any local rides before I hear of them. However when I do, I'll pass it on to you. I have a trailer that I transport my bikes on. If you need transport for you and your bike for one of these events let me know.
