The Lounge / T-shirt company
« on: May 25, 2018, 11:53:36 AM »
Hello BG users.

I am in the situation of starting a t-shirt company. I know we have been through this topic but I can smell something coming.

These are the first shirts we printed.

The meaning of the word Recio is fast in spanish, we use the word Recio to make reference to something or someone being overly CRAZY from drugs to stupid situations.

The first batch of t-shirts only sold 2 and the others got lost among "friends" while I went to jail for DUI.

Please let me know what you think and what you expect from a t-shirt company you like.

I remeber the B-I-K-E board which was pretty fun back when digital cameras first came out. It was something fun to do.

I am a member since 2006.

Had to undo the head cover and valves, there was some oil mixing into the cylinder.
This is a 1997 so it must have some problems, this is one. waiting on some new rings, gaskets for removed parts and circlips. I want to do the valve seals but need to see if the valves have any wear. Overall checking it.

That bike is bad! looks nice and they say its funner to ride a slow car fast.

My bike is a total loss system like aesop stated.

Oil is going to the combustion chamber and i need to replace the rings on the piston.

How bad of a job is it? I have a decent sized porch i can dismantle my bike but I have never delt with motors.

Thanks for all the input. I appreciate people with the same passion I have for these machines. Its amazing how long motorvehicles have come. Motorcycles is something I dreamt of being a part of since I was a little kid, they were just too expensive for me and couldnt gather the correct mind to collect one myself. Now I am 27 and old enough to know these things will kill you if you let them. So ride on!
As a kid i used to see my younger cousins race motocross. I was too hyperactive to convince someone to let me on one so I have had the urge to do so since.  ::)

I couldn't watch the episode since TJ lavin is so full of shit and that other guy was horrific, definitely pushing matt onto a corner.

Most carb problems happen when the bike sits. If things are running really poorly you need to clean out your carbs. There should be a fuel/air mixture screw. That's pretty much the only adjustment you'll need for tuning. Your best bet is to find a guide for your bike. The end game is to have your spark plug tan coloured. If not enough gas is getting through you will have white spark plugs, If too much gets through you'll have black plugs. Oil can cause blackness too. There is also an adjustment for idle. You can adjust an idle stopper so that the throttle returns to 1000rpm or 2000rpm when you let go. (I think most should be set just over 1000rpm)

For the more technical parts of how a carb works; There is a slow jet that allows gas through when the bike idles. At full throttle the main jet will be supplying most of the gas. In between it will slowly transition. The fuel screw adjusts the opening in the fuel line. (sort of)

The reason one carb is handy for maintenance is; To tune most 1970's Honda fours for example you need to set the timing, then valve clearances(otherwise you could tune to accommodate improper settings), then you set your fuel mixture on each carb, Then you have to hook up 4 vacuum gauges to each of the 4 carbs and adjust the setting on each carb slide so you have identical vacuum readings at idle, half throttle, then full. One carb doesn't need this last step.

I learned the most from reading clymers and hanes manuals. Definitely worth picking up. Just read through once or twice before you dig into anything. Some instructions are unclear or they tell you how to take something apart and then say "do the reverse to assemble"

Hello And thanks for your input. I have heard clymers manuals are good for something, I think its worth checking it out since they make one for my motorcycle.

I also have a GY6 moped which I wish to modify and clean so I can make it work flawless. Its also been sitting for around a month since I got my other motorycle. THanks for the input on how to those things work.

I really don't know much about motorcycles but I wish to learn so I can work on them myself.

What do I need to know about adjusting carburators? do they need to be fully rebuilt to adjust them? do they use gaskets?

My motorcycle motor is fully rebuilt with make-a-gasket and no gasket at all.

Yes indeed. I wanted a motorcycle to ride and fix. It can be very therapeutic.

Brooklynrider  I was about to buy that 80 something Virago too, but my neighbor gave it away to his brother. Then no virago for me, then I looked onto the s40's for the price. And I ultimately found a 97' Savage which is what i have now.

Get drunk while you ride and you'll forget that everyone is at least 10 years younger than you.. Just like at the bar.
Yeah, then I will be the drunk old dude. Too many years of that already. Just sold my freecoaster and bought a motorcycle.

ALthough i dont judge, drinking while riding seems to be the most fun, atleast for me. Then again it all seems stale unless im learning some new tricks or at some new spot.

You are a millennial.
I know im classified as a Millenial but i think millenials is more aimed towards people born after year 2000. Being 26 years old I am not as tech crazed as them and I am no longer owner of my time. Maybe older people than me think of me as a millenial.

There is a crew of younger dudes that ride where I live that I think are horrible, so when I see them I just wave and say hi and be polite and try to not get lost in the vape clouds that follow them while they are intsagramming the sweet flyouts they do.

Same here, I moved near a skatepark and they even de-motivate me from going there anymore. I live by a lot of new street spots i would like to go hit but nobody is really into that. I guess im just going through some changes. i need to get me a topload stem.
