Eek

Yeah, good question. I did that once on my XT and it seized less than 500 miles later.

Got too hot in the shop to do any moto wrench'n so this is what I did.

My 40" shop fan started making racket in the last couple years and became unusable of late... the worst time of year. After taking action and tearing it apart, found the rear bearing and armature to be toast, the bearing had locked and roached the shaft.

I chucked it up and trued the shaft, turning it down to .5" dia.



Pulled a piece of round stock and turned a bush to add to the shaft.



Parted off and a ream to size.





A little heat, pressing, all married up, ready to turn to size.



Ready for next process, turn to match ID of bearing, complete with stop shoulder to replace snap-ring stop groove that was no longer present due to previous failure.



Add one bearing from local auto supply.



A little re-assemble, things are much better in la Desert Skies shop on a hot July day... :

Yep, this is what a guy does with the proper tools.

Me, not so much.

I washed my muddy ass bike today, that's about it. I'm on a no spending spree.

MLW brought home a new umbrella to replace our deceased back deck shade tree;
Stand w/ umbrella wasn't so good (Aldi's, the HF of Food & a few housewares thrown in)

Had to start with one of these;

Bandsawed a plate (not too straight)

Was talking myself into thinking not straight was good enough, but knew every time I looked at it later that it would bug me, so prettied it up some on the manual mill;
Before

After

Popped some holes in & test fit

Put some pipe on

Put a tab on from the scrap pile;


Seems to work OK, will let it simmer overnight & see if it's good enough for paint in the AM


A little cool down;



Tomorrow; lowering links

^ I like the beer theme...

Today finally got my sprockets in from Amazon. Removed the nut for the countershaft sprocket, PITA but I got in finally.Broke my old chain (17k+ miles on it) cleaned up the area and put on my new chain. Had to remove 2 pins to make it the 118 stock size. Pressed the plate on and then riveted the pins. Smeared a bit of ultra black silicone over the pins too.

Wondering if I should go with stock 15T CS sprocket or 16T. Finish it up tomorrow, ready for the weekend.
