    Do you need more than a Facebook account to order from there? Btw noticed that the shipping fee goes beyond quadruple the actual price of what’s being shipped

    its been on a make shift rear stand out of bricks for around a week got some nasty filthy slurry grimy smudge out the rear end of the motor and oiled the chain and sprockets looked way better I used the filthy oil from the filter replacement the chunks in the oil are just remains of a destroyed oil filter apparently I’m not taking as many photos as I’d like phones in my pocket as I work and most of the time it dies when I set it on time lapse and play music at the same time

    do y’all think I should get a brand new petcock for the tank tomorrow morning? I gotta remove the old one and walk over to the place for him to check if he’s got something that fits remember today I just fitted the whatever the hell sparks I could get my hands on pisses me of paying 4.50$ for 1$ sparks whatever it’s like some intricate battle to find a seller with the right sparks was wondering if I’d use the makeshift tank from the carb bottle but I’m unsure wether I hook it to the fuel pump or straight into the carbs and god help me how to hold it still while I attempt a caramel with the clutch in and full throttle and no starter

    really don’t know if I should get a regulator too first attempt at cranking when I first got the battery made the whole bike push forward like it wanted to wheelie when you change gears from 1st to second

    All I’m thinking about is wether I should keep cranking with no coolant in the in the rear jug or whatcha have you I’ll definitely load it with tap water tho seems like a million years ago it was fine tuned and awesome now it’s starting to get me all Idk tried to remove the brake screws front and back with a number 12 wrench the wrench seemed to go around without even moving the screw I sprayed just like 13 seconds of wd40 without the silly straw all over thinking it might help in case I try at it again tomorrow today my bro in Norway messages me telling me he’s got a chopper to catch and my mom well telling me to stay clean

    The fuel pump is getting gas although it seems that the starters aren’t getting enough power to turn over the carbs I hooked the make shift tank into the fuel pump the fuses are all good got ignition 5a and main 30a something seems off the hose to the carbs have no filter and honestly thinking if it’s either the battery power or the regulator

    Today got god damn pissed it’s way stuffy in here shoved oil and gas containers into a closet and read the battery on the cheap multimeter it read more than 11 when I tried to crank the motor the starters didn’t make any noise whatsoever if it’s not the battery and the starters where good as hell last attempt Regulator? The fuses are fine the pump making noise how can I upload videos here for the noises the bike makes?

    Hooked it to the fuel pump the battery seemed to have died out making a ticking noise when I attempted a start the carbs seem clean dunno if it’s lack of charge or the regulator spreading current fuel pump? I’m pissed today and f****n tired out of attempting last cash on a petcock and regulator or cab and tattoo? The battery read over 11 or 12 on the cheap multimeter ideas? Found the petcock today and got some adhesive

    checked out a screwdriver not sure if it’s a jis nomore images for the month somehow it uploaded and I deleted the pic I’ll try again ideas on petcock and regulator? From a spare part shop dunno if that’ll make a major difference

    If the neutral light doesn’t come on when the engine is on run and the bike is in neutral gear since the mfrikin wheel spins I gotta pull the clutch in fully and turn the throttle out fully and start the god damn thing with no start feed the chambers with straight fuel and well #MAYBE

    Hey mate... I am guessing (because there are very few replies) that most people on here are sort of like me and are having trouble understanding your posts... not sure what your main language is but when making posts it is best to use shorter sentences, punctuation (like full stops and comma's) etc and keep it simple. Then the brains trust here might be able to assist.
    To put it in simple terms... nobody seems to understand what you are doing or why... other than your bike wont run.

    The language is just like


    ʌ
    / | \
    | | |
    \ \/
    /\ \
    | | |
    \ | /
    v


    The universal s

    I know I guess I have to apologize for not inserting commas and full stops like a Run on sentence that way I feel I can stream into my notes into whatever happened recently

    I’m trying to keep it all simple in whatever matters the whole going to browse spare parts and having to keep parts on me while I walk got me stressing
    Like me wondering towards garages or asking random folks where I can find a petcock got all confused in the mix walked for miles on end and I guess making things simple got out of hand like explaining to whatever garage about how a carburetor runs when I just need to know if they have some kind of fuel valve that fits or a copy it got silly intricate and that causes sort of misunderstanding between what I’m trying to accomplish now last week all in all up till today got the battery drained so much the starters won’t ignite replaced the copy 1$ sparks I got for 4$ with cpr6ea found some champion short length sparks that read z9y got four cylindrical rubbers for under the tank random screws today I got a spare handle at start and sealed the petcock with some concentrated sealant now it’s stuck in whatever position the valve is on couldn’t find a good replacement the only ones I did find where cylindrical petcocks when I needed the rectangular ones for the tank got searched by the army that wasted time for no reason lost a spare rubber o ring got directions to a place at noon tomorrow that’s 12pm for a definite maybe I guess on the petcock cash wise spent around 2/3 of what I saved on a spare start rubber tubes 2 filters and hoses screws found some 10/40 Sae oil in a 4l bottle for more than what I had on me haven’t attempted a crank due to lack of power there’s an outlet near by but I’d have to extend it outside towards near the bike I got around whatever fluctuating prices 5-10$ at the moment unscrewed the side stand switch finished the psi on the last wd40 bottle kept around 600 ml of old fuel in a clear plastic bottle I might just use the money to rent a battery charger and attempt to jumpstart the motor with the old battery in place it’s either that or get lots of cola soda bottles and pour them into the tank and give it a shake SPLASH WARNING I hope it won’t get all sticky inside the gunk will definitely disintegrate but it’s the rust I’m worried about this will definitely remove residue the screws on the brake pads are clean now I mean why’s it gotta be so intricate when you walk to a garage and ask for pads they wanna see the old part I mean I might not want the same ones pictures don’t seem to work whenever I show’em it does help make some sense although such a waste of time asked my neighbor if I could use the battery charger on the outlet to jump start the motor that was well a no and the battery clips those I don’t have at the moment left a message got a reply from an old acquaintance we agreed on a date sent him my location he said he’d be here around 5pm the next day I sent back a confirmation and offered breakfast he said ok yet never replied he has a jumpstarts and possibly something else I need he mentioned a new chain that got me worried about the sprockets tho new chain and old sprockets I’ll check in again with him hoping we meet at the same time to try and attempt a crank and get the motor running to avoid long exposure to elements and hear how it runs and rev it to clear any formations through the pipes out of the exhaust and listen for any noise that seems or feels of I honestly hoping I can trip on a shiny Honda 900 or bmw r9 makes it feel like it’ll be more durable for long trips and parks even maintaining but investment wise cash is going on spare parts and screws and bottles and groceries and I can’t seem to find or buy everything I need at the same time so right now I’ll offer the old acquaintance my 5-10$ when he said yo I’m not in it for no cash but didn’t show up anyway everything around gets confusing from contacts on my phone to wear abouts to walks it feels like I’m shopping for some mystical parts I’ll let the guy know I’ll be here just waiting in the case and the tank well crank the motor first so keeping the cash in my pocket just in case

    But the rest of us have no idea what you are rambling about.....based on your post above my best advice at present would be to push the bike out in the street and get a few litres of fuel and burn it... then it wont be a problem for you anymore.

    Sorry... but I dont think any of us can de-cipher what you write.

    I agree with the other guys.
    As much as we would like to help you, we are all having trouble identifying what the actual problem is.
    As best as I can make out, it appears that you are struggling to find cash and parts to fix your bike.
    This has resulted in a bit of experimentation and substitution of parts.
    It is difficult to follow your story, but I do appreciate the problems you face.

    If you need help from this community, please be as precise as possible to describe your problem(s) and make your request as simple and as clear as you can.

    Good luck.

    Peter.

    I know I guess it hard not trying to talk in some language that needs deciphering basically compression that passed the test yet it starts to change when I attemp a crank to the carb manifolds into the motor there’s good spark the wires show electric flow the sound of the carbs change too today I rented a battery for 10 minutes and drenched the carbs with fuel the compression got weaker and combustion didn’t happen
