BW comuter

Logged 130 miles in the last 4 days taking the BW to work and back. Brooklyn to the Bronx was never so fun. Going to enter it in the vintage bike show in Brooklyn Sunday. They wnot know what hit 'em. Got lights that go on automatically when someone opens my gate and picking up video camera tomorrow. People have tried to steal her twice this week and I'm in an ok neighborhood. Relatively speaking. Also bought (and waiting for) a Bully U-Lock with an alarm and pager. Try to steal it now F#cktards.

Sprocket Question

While 1st gear is great for pulling stumps and climbing walls it's useless on the street. I was wondering if anyone's put a 16 tooth up front
I wanted to know
1) would I need a longer chain from the sprocket to the jack shaft
2) will I still have decent low end for the dirt, hills ect?

As it stands I was in 1st the other day and got passed by an old woman with a walker.

Going to a 14 doesn't seem as if it would make a big difference and can't find a 15 tooth. Just want to get another 5-10mph on the tarmac so I don't blow up my BW. Any suggestions/experience would be helpful.

Or a 34 in the rear but I need a dished one correct?

wingnut racer,

The VF500f sprocket also comes in a 16 tooth version as well:



http://www.jtsprockets.com/catalogue/model/4713

I haven't tried it my self yet, so I'm not sure if the 350 will still be able to handle the monster hills on the mean streets of Brooklyn. You just might be able to outrun the constabulary when they check your tires for highway legality, however.

One tooth larger certainly shouldn't require an extra link in your chain. For such a short chain, one link is a huge increase in length. If 2 or three links doesn't fit with the stock length then you can always wait for the chain to stretch. I know that you're not supposed to run an old chain on a new sprocket, but we are trying to advance the science and technology of BigWheels. There has to be some experimentation.

The rear sprocket is indeed offset. You will need to make a spacer to try any other size sprockets since they were never available except in the stock 37T.

Thank Yee Mr BW

a little mod and the NOT legal for highway use could easily be made into DOT legal for highway use May have to try the 16 up front. 3 teeth is a mighty big jump though and it does spend a good deal of it's life in the dirt. There are a few hills I may just have to be content with going down them.

Status of CDIs for BWs?

Has anyone heard anything on the "reverse engineering" project for BW CDIs? All references seem to have fizzled out.

The CDI projects do seem to have lost their steam.

This is a very interesting thread (if you are a fat tire geek) that was on the TW200 forum:

http://tw200forum.com/forum/technica...tw200-cdi.html

It concerns the rebuild of an '87 TW200 CDI which looks suspiciously like the 350 CDI and after 25 years, fails just like it.

This one had a happy ending. Is it possible that we could repair our CDIs instead of paying through the nose for 25 year old used units?

Nah.

That wouldn't be the BigWheel way. Buy high, sell low.

I sent a message to another ADV member who specializes in rebuilding Honda XL cdi's to see if he has any interest in trying his hand at BW cdi resurrection. I haven't received a reply yet but I have a few dead and dying units that he could experiment on.

Otherwise, I'll have to learn Russian so I can program that one from the youtube video.

Amen to the Russian speaking thing. You and I are closer than most everyone else on here to speaking Russian (Just one short range bomber away). I can almost see Russia if I stand on top of my seat.
