well i had a disappointing tranny tune up today :roll:
got hundred and 30 bucks worth of parts almost but 7.4 rollers so.
clutch springs 3 pac. red are strongest then blue then green from Mallosi, well
I could not put on red ones 2 strong! but was able 2 put on blue ones, they did help on down hill but not that much when tested, may get pro 2 try red springs.
now rollers, got 6.7 set and put in with new belt. it sucked, barley hit 70 on flat, up hill good thou(new belt?) so it looks like heavier rollers are 4 9;s?
anyways rally not far off and want something better out of this scooter, willorder stock weight size next, but i did see dr pullys 4 9 2 need input guys time is short

well put old rollers back in and went 4 quite a ride!hitting a strong 75k on flats going up 2 80+ on down hills and feeling 85-90 down fair hills. i feel the freewheeling of the clutch but only helps a bit with the mid range springs,most def must try red ones!. i figure i am doing good i am big rider 220 + gear, but charlie is flying at 175 on his , he berry speedo! on his stock? i can't get past 85-90 much? did a 110 k and showed real low on gas gauge but only took 4.3 liters 2 fill? so i have quite a bit left of my 7 liters ehh?
tonite i feel i now have power with a few more mods 2 go 2 my cottage fairly comfortable by gps back road now :D

I was looking at the headlight the other night. It is much brighter on the pass than on low or high. Not to sciency just had it in the shop facing the wall. When I pressed the pass on the switch it as much brighter and seemed higher on the wall than the highbeam light. I was thinking of a set of aftermarket driving lights but just not sure how to mount them or if they would thake to much power. Maybe LED lights.

I ordered from jiangwayne.com for good prices and I'm sure the web site said said UPS but they shipped Canadapost. So we wait and see if the strike screws me over. I would have asked for UPS or anything other than Canadapost. Not happy. I would support local shops but when the dealer can't or will not stock normal needed parts I go else were.
