Update on the cooling vest.

Man, I love wearing it. Can hardly wait for hot days, so I can wear it.

Figured out to turn it inside out, so mesh is between my t-shirt and the ice. Normal way has a solid panel over the ice.

To make it last longer, I slip in some extra ice packs. I also make sure it's snug. Needs to make good contact.

We had a major heat wave and I could wear it at midnight. When it started cooling, I wore it at night and my teeth chattered all the way home

EDIT: Looks like it's gonna be in the 90s tomorrow. :smt041

Quick pic of the bike.

New silencer makes a big difference. Doesn't stink me up half as much as the old one.

It will, after enough miles.

Changed the oil & filter and installed the adjustable link connecting rod.

No problems, so far. Haven't had a test ride, yet.

Hope I can ride more, soon. The oil was hardly dirty. Never seen that before.


Interesting side note: See those 2 plastic caps?
The caps hold the loose needle bearings in place. The collar slides in, and pushes the 2 caps out the other side. Easy-peasy.

I love the cooked exhaust. Bluing looks very cool.

I want custom titanium expansion chambers with similar coloring.

The question is... can I make it happen? :smt017

Yes, overheating is the cause. Run it up to temperature and get it really hot. No fan on the bike. This is what does it.
