This evening I finished all three bikes, everything seems to be running and working good. Thanks to Aaron, Matt Tanner, Scott Vile, Bill Douglas for the help and parts.

175's have new PVLs, new tanks and seats, some exhaust work, some breather work and my bike has a neato bike speedo for mph, max mph, odo, running time etc. Mary's 50 has a new ported ball bearing camshaft head and a new racier camshaft.

All bikes were started today, nothing leaking for falling off yet. Now to clean the shop, pack up the tools, check out the trailer.

Aaron, by the way...I think that bastard at Penton did send the wrong stator...I fucked around with for an hour trying to get it to start before I narrowed it down to the fact that the stator had to be mounted on backwards compared to the other units I've installed. No biggie, just take it off and flip it over. Looks like it's the unit meant for a CB350 that I think mounts the stator backwards. F'er probably said screw those guys I'm going to send what I think is right regardless of what they ordered.

You know he probably did. I kow my charming personality probably didn't help. I should order 10 more like that so he doesn't think he's right. Can I borrow some money?

Well it's either that or the rotor was magnatized differently...Not sure if the rotors Penton gets in bulk are already magnatized or if they do it themselves.

Just so you'll know....almost always the timing marks on the stator face the same direction as the timing marks on the rotor (out)...which of course makes sense so you can see both of them at the same time. This last unit had to have the rotor installed so the timing marks were facing toward the engine..doesn't matter since you don't use the marks anyway...but it was the first one I've installed that had to be that way.

It's 6:00am...I actually slept during the night last night and in a few minutes I go down and organize for the trip.

Yes I will have money when I get paid the balance on Hiroshi's bike. But you can't have any...I did send you a special gift in the mail though.
