$4 spring should be here so I can get motorcycle put back together tonight. Head has shipped but tracking information is not showing what it should. Showing only that label was created and "ready for UPS" even though it was checked in and the label was printed at UPS center. I wonder if they had to make a new tracking number for it or something.

Lots of projects I had planned to be done by now. Only thing I have finished is getting a dirt bike and getting it running again. ss mods still not installed, wagon still in pieces, rc car still in my box at work in pieces.

Its probably sitting on a shelf at that office and they put that as the status so it looks like its not their fault it hasn't moved.

Yea it was a lil but it needed a full rebuild anyway. Sucks that to do a full rebuild you have to get 3 seperate kits for the flat slide carb on that thing. She runs great now though and doesn't need half choke all the time.
Pictures of when I first got it completely back together and after I added a light bar. Custom battery box and wiring Its a good thing I work at a gm dealer and have access to aux12 agm batteries often for only 12bucks each (core). Battery runs the light for about 5ish hours safely.

I like the battery box but would personally substitute the bungee straps for zip-ties

So my car starts to do a vibration sound when I leave it in 1-3 gear over 4k rpms. Only if I let go of the gas I guess I'll be checking it to see what it could be

I would go through a lot of zip ties since I have to take it off to charge it after5-6 hours. The way I have the box built I only need the one going across the front to hold it in, the rest are to keep the rubber flaps down so nothing can hit the top of the battery while riding.
