Yeap the nut and bell came off on the ride out to the dragon... I was riding and all of a sudden I had no power to the tire. It would rev up and hit the limiter and nothing to the wheel. So i pulled off the road and sure enough the bell had flown off so nothing to keep the clutch engaged. Luckily teksruck brought his as a back up to his new ncy that he threw on! And thankfully he let me get it and then did some electrical magic and got me back on the road!!

Was so cool to meet you guys! I'm glad I could help and get you back out on our beautiful roads. And I'm glad we figured out the wiring/ battery problem. Just remember to go back in and fix those wires the right way.

Were you able to return that battery? Since now we know the battery was fine, just a wiring issue.

I hope you have a safe trip back home! 8)

Wow! I kept looking at that picture, thinking, "I can't see what is wrong!" Didn't realize you were running without a cover.

Yep, he literally lost his clutch bell down the side of a mountain. On The Foothills Parkway.

I'm just glad that we were able to get him back on the road so he could ride some of the Smokey Mountains National Park since he didn't get to tame The Dragon.

you'd want to ride it when there isn't 600 other scoots out there, if you had a choice :) But doing it with 600 others scoots isn't bad either.

Nice man! I think it looks better than that little black red bull can. lol!

Seriously though, I really like how the swooping shape flows perfectly with the lines of your met-ruck. You could always have it powdercoated in some colors or designs to match the theme. I'm not clever enough to come up with a good looking suggestion....... but powdercoat if done right will handle the heat and last a long time.

Everything still running ok?

Thanks bro!! I am ready for things to calm down and then I need to give all my rides some love.

The new todo list:
Fix up my grounds
Shave off my bushing to center up the rear ( maybe even get ride of the yellow wall and replace it with with the other fatty... :lol: )
Revamp my handle bar set up
Get the cdi installed and tuned up
Engineer a way for my seat to flip up with the DORF

But let's me honest here I don't have a garage anymore so these things will have to be finished in small chuncks so I don't have it broken apart and just put in yard...
