PostPosted: Sun May 23, 2010 6:52 pm 
I can roll it down the drive way and get it to about 4mph.

Haven't started it ye. Still waiting on a fuel pump. Should have it this week and it should fire up. Engine cranks just no gas.

On the shelf for a little while. With two little girls, a wife and full time job it's tough to find time. It's probably only going to take me a couple of hours to figure it out but I haven't had time. I just sold my 82' GS650 which was taking up too much of my time and my ruck is all straighten out now. Picking up a Triumph but this one is no project so I'm pulling out the Metro buddy soon. I'm thinking the timing is off or it's just not grounded right.

Rolled the Metrobuddy back into the garage today. This thing is like 90% done, just gotta get it started and throw some ghetto paint on her.

My Triumph is my daily driver and the Ruck is completed as I just added the "angel eyes" and got some serious lightage for the night ridin now, which I rarely do. So 2 out of 3 rides working.

I'll post some pics soon. No one wants to here me ramble on.

Put her back on the table tonight and pulled the head cover off. As I expected I didn't line up the cam on top dead center. Fixed that issue and put it back together. Too late to attempt to start it up. Def not getting any fuel to the carb so that will be the next thing to look into.

New battery and some adjustment and she's running. Dumped some gray primer on her and she almost done. Much quieter than my Ruck. Gotta mount the taillight and front blinkers. Need to get a caliper for the front brake.

Plastic on.

I like it but I don't like how the front fender covers up those pretty forks. Tires look good, got the same ones on my ruck right now.

First things first, CONGRATS! Second, what was wrong with it? Third, the fan cover that points down doesn't do anything for it and my dealer told me to remove it because it looks dumb which now that it's off it looks amazing. Fourth, what kind of taillight are you going for? And that's all. Great job

thanks

Finally just ordered a battery for it and that was the main issue. The new battery is much bigger than the original MET battery so I kinda had to zip tire it down. I got the fuel pump straighten out and she seems to be running pretty well.

Yea I heard that fan cover is only good for sucking up leaves.

I've got a all in one tail light that's pretty sweet. I've already wired it up, I just gotta mount it on the tail. I gotta figure out what I'm going to do for the front directionals too. Need to get a caliper for the front disk set up too.

I think I've gotta adjust the values as well, as when I gas it it seems to studder. Need to double check the timing as well.

I'll post pics of the rear light when i get it installed.

PostPosted: Wed Aug 25, 2010 5:27 pm 
Did a few more things on the Met. She's about 94.7% done.

Chopped the rear and cleaned her up. Just gotta throw some grey primer on her. Added the rear light and directionals. I'm pretty happy with the rear but I'm not really feelin the front directionals. I'd like to mount them off the handlebars or just axe them all together and get the small ones for the fender.

Also re-route the rear brake cable as it was binding on left hand turns. Added the tach, just for show. I'd like to mount the buddy tach as all the wiring is their for it to work but I'll take some time trying to make mount it and make it look decent with the plastics.

My NCY front caliper came in, but then I realized the manjo bolts off the old Buddy caliper are way bigger, so for starters I'd need a new brake line, and then I'm not sure the I could go from a large banjo bolt to the buddy master cylinder to a small one on the bolt to the NCY caliper. So I'm just rocking the rear brake and I pulled the front rotor cuz it was hiding the pimp Dio wheel.

Running better and starts right up, but she takes off fast but then bogs out. I really haven't been able to test her out because of 3 straight days of rain. May be a jetting issue as I haven't touched the stock carb.

Stuff left to do. Get a the missing pieces for the front brake. Figure out the boggin issues. And maybe add the Buddy tach.

Tach, (this thing is so fast it does 20mph just sitting still)

PostPosted: Mon Sep 20, 2010 6:28 pm 
Pulling Mcgirt apart and fixing the things I really didn't like about the Metro. Here's what I got going on:

1. Fix the rear so the shock sit back further. The engine was sitting really low to the ground and I wasn't feeling it. So, I shit fabbed up a longer shock extention out more and this has brought the engine upwards and higher off the ground. That Hilo6 shock mount would be the easy fix.

2. Hated the small ghay handlebars. One they are too close and too short. I've got a longer stem that comes forward and some sweet straight bars going on. I;m having a tough time with the stem right now as it's made to fit a zuma so I had to grind down the tree.

3. Order the big head cylinder for the 161cc engine. Cylinder should be in the lab soon.

4. Install the front disk brake. Finally got all the pieces to finish that up.

5. Post some pics. No one wants to really read my ramblings. I'll get those up soon when I get the handlebars on right.

 Post subject: Re: 161cc MetroBuddy aka "Dirt McGirt" finished, I think
PostPosted: Tue Oct 05, 2010 5:12 pm 
So here's what I finished up on Dirt McGirt.

Installed the front disk brake, changed the forks to ATR lowdowns with NCY caliper, bleed the brakes and stops on dimes now.
Finished up the the rear shock extension.
Added SRT8 bars and stem. Stem was for a Zuma, had to modify to fit.
Added front directional to the wheel cover, tossed the old ones.

These pictures suck. Got get some in the daytime when I see the sun again.
