I bet if you got a copy of the police report it will say he didn't radar you, just paced you and followed you for more than a mile..... I should upload a picture of the last police report I have from being pulled over
I just adjusted mine and had the feelers but it was impossible to get them into the tight space, what I did was adjust it a few times with a guesstimate and they are a little loose but its not too loose.
Some how after adjusting them loose like that I now have issues kick starting it, seems to be a bit advanced on the spark some how just from adjusting the valves... . Its actually better tho, I get over 60mph now..
Ok, it has issues revving up when you turn the throttle? If so it does sound like a fuel / fuel delivery issue. Could be the diaphragm is getting stiff or the cylinder that is attached to the diaphragm is sticking in some oil or grit in the Carb.... doesn't matter if its new or not something could still have gotten in there.
If it does rev to about 4-5k without going anywhere then its most likely a clutch issue, maybe it has glazed over or is sticking somehow. Maybe the belt is slipping or worn.
No guarantee on anything I said being the issue but its good places to start
Its kind of a weird one.... I like to code missions for a game called arma (currently arma 3 alpha). I have been porting older missions over to the alpha by doing a full redo of their code from scratch. It usually is a pain in the butt. When it finally works it feels amazing and you have got to get another challenge to work on.
Anyone play? If you do and have either arma 2 or arma 3 alpha add me on steam or join my mumble server! H3nry-ftwk- on steam ( it could be h3nry_ftwk_) Urbanmulcher.info. port: 11100. On mumble
I just hope we brought all of the good hearted people with us and left most of the unwanted(un knowledgeable and bad attitudes) to find a new place, somewhere they may be useful.
I love having a place that has helped me attempt to make a buisness that I can contribute back into, a place I can try to make better. I guess its not "the same place" but its the same people and, so far, better attitude!
Yeah I was about to point out the sprocket sizes and ratios but I decided to leave it alone lol. ( I think the top one has a ratio of 0.33 or so.... that could be helped a lot in range and speed by smaller rear sprocket but no need to get into that on a randomly found picture :] )
I'm thinking of a 3 or 4 wheeled vehicle for my shopping runs that uses a gas genny to power my electric motor and take me to the winco, but that would require making and registering a vehicle from scratch.... too much time at the DMV for me
Then again... an electric vehicle that you always carry a generator in case you have to really charge (would always be on when driving so you can disconnect most of the batteries :] ) and you wouldn't have to do emissions
I seem to have an advance on the engine! It will fire JUST before tdc and if I'm not careful kick back the wrong way. I have not altered this engine at all.... maybe I need to retard the timing a slight bit. hmm thinking about it it didn't fire before tdc until I adjusted the valves. Hmm curious
Those are industrial motors, either that or a high torque work motor of some sort. I have been looking at some 2hp farm and industrial motors... they state they maintain the torque thru most of the rpm range (up to 3400rpm) and have fins just like the motors on those bikes. Only thing is they are ~$700. Time to search out a free pool pump motor to play with
A little bit off topic but here in AZ the motorcycle written test had a question asking "at night you and one car are on the road, what is the best to do. Stay close to the rear of the vehicle and use their lights to see or stay back far enough to be clear of the vehicle." Well it used to say stay close! It recently changed to stay back and clear of the car. What the are they thinking! (I failed that question both times because they changed the answer between my first test and second.)
A direct drive on a DC motor won't get you fast (just about 23MPH). It probably would work best with a Variator. Usually DC motors are limited to ~4.4k RPM (they just don't have a lot of torque at those RPMs). A 50cc doing 4.5k RPM, usually goes ~25-30MPH.
An AC motor is more difficult to feed. There are currently no AC batteries, and using a power converter to convert DC to AC, would take more energy than using a direct DC motor.
A motor spinning at 1500 rpm with an output wheel that's 13 inches is going to push you at 58mph if the differential is 1. That's without the variator, with it would kinda be a waste I think( unnecessarily high rpms to get to speed, possibly better if you maintain a higher speed tho)
