Laugh update~somewhat-*-new update

Well I found out that there was never a voltage regulator hooked in the line[it was there just wasn't hooked up and didn't work nohow]. Any way I have all the parts now and em going to install them tomorrow and see if it works.


Well I just got back from my shop. Clip a zip-tie and plug in two plugs five kicks later the engine was running, hit the switch and we have fan cooling[again]. It seemed to run at a constant speed so I'm guessing that every thing is working.

This is posta be a square thing. Now I have two running trials bikes.





Hope this is the end of updates till it has a new owner.

Yes, but then anyone can do that with a 150 lb modern trials bike as opposed to a vintage bike 100 lbs? heavier!

Yep. The up side of couse is that no-one ever expects you to do the Toni Bou "bouncy, bouncy" thing!
