I'm charged with the task of Model Rocket recovery tomorrow - so the Duro wheel was replaced with the TW34, in order to ease my footprint on public land. I spoke to Lance at Sprocket Specialists yesterday concerning my anodized 70T sprocket. He informed me that the anodizing process would take another 8-10 on top of the 10 days since my order was placed. Apparently the anodizing service is having delays due to Corona Virus. I explained that I understood and I was willing to wait until the anodizing process was completed. Lance then told me that he would cut me another non-anodized sprocket and send it out immediately. He then told me to expect the anodized 70T sprocket to arrive in the mail when it is completed...no charge! Customer service? WOW! Highly suggest Sprocket Specialties!!!

What price range is that sprocket in?
I would say the upper range? Right around $120 - anodized and shipped. Not many options for 70T sprockets...

Had to modify my quick release seat bolts. The stock seat holes appear to be marginally further apart than the NitroHead seat I had. Now the wingnuts won't clear the frame for the last couple threads. Quick lap on the grinder and de-burred with a file.
Now they truly look the part of "mule nuts"

Hunting season is starting soon and the Tdub was asking that I try to dress it up for the occasion. Started Thursday eve by tearing down and washing all of the parts, Friday prep and a paint job. Saturday clear coats. Today assemble. It is a very happy bike now and is begging me to take it out for a spin.

Very nice paint job, I like it a lot!

What technique did you use for the camo effect?

Well yesterday some more goodies came in the mail so today was install some of them day.

Replaced the front sprocket with a 14T, the rear with a 42T, new O-Ring chain which I had to cut 5 links out of.

It's been a long time since I did any chain work but the only thing is working on the ground sucks.

I did use a transmission jack to raise the bike up which made it manageable.

I did manage to pinch " and break " the red and white wires going to the magneto, when it wouldn't start I knew I had goofed, easy enough repair tho.

Test drive up the driveway and back, then to the store and back, like 6 miles, all went well, RPM's are way down but I over did it with the 42T.

Sure I could hit 80 MPH, downhill in a hurricane but even a small rise and you can really notice the lost torque.

i am going to order a 47T and see how that does,

Oh, did I forget to mention I LOVE this little bike?

Slowly but surely addressing the lack of safety features on my bike. the previous owner apparently had something against having 10 fingers and 10 toes.

Ordered a chain cover and chain slider seeing as how my chain likes to smack the swingarm due to an entire lack of safety parts in regards to the chain. Fabbed a lower chain guard out of an old cutting board.

Added a crankcase breather/filter instead of having a random hose venting onto the rear tire. Used a front fender scrap to make a rear fender at the shock mount to keep from soaking the crank case filter.
Remounted the LP with a better bracket (thanks Errtu!). Got the plate centered and kicked out at 45 degrees instead of at a right angle and sticking way out the side.
