Do not use sandpaper, if you rub through the coating of the tip down to the copper core the tip is ruined, all you need is a piece of natural sponge, do not use plastic foam sponge obviously cause it will melt. Wet the sponge and just wipe the hot tip onto it, the surplus solder and slag will come off cleanly without damaging the tip. If you're not planning to use the iron on anything else than just to solder up a few wires get a cheap flat tipped one, shouldn't cost more than a tenner or so, 45w will suffice in a windless environment. An adjustable soldering station is always better but for just wires a bit overkill. I've found my go-to soldering iron to be the dremel gas torch

Trying to do the float bowl mod.

Couldn't find the Keihin bowls online. Found a new set on Ebay.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-Float-B...cb2c%7Ciid%3A1

Got some bogus shit.

The ad photo shows actual Keihin bowls. Ad says made by Keihin bowls.

Keihin (PWK) bowls have "PWK" cast on the inside of the bowls. Not on the bowls I received. Bogus bowls next to my genuine PWK bowls.



One bowl is damaged/defective. Note the position of the overflow tube. This bowl also had machine work done. Probably caused the bent tube.





The bowls I received aren't even the same version as the ad photo. Overflow outlets are also different.



Check the quality compared to genuine Keihin:





More wasted time. Will contact Sudco about getting genuine bowls.

man that`s bullshit... and at the same time the main reason why I only order via ebay stuff I don`t have to return in case of a dud (cause the shipping costs from here can be 10x the value of the product)

Sucks man ! File a dispute, PayPal will refund your money in full including postage within 24 hrs and the shipper pays return postage. Most of the time they don’t even ask for the stuff back.

Wasn't feeling this kill switch, so it's gone.




Got a billet aluminum kill switch. Just need matching hardware.

I take it that’s a push and latch type switch? Looks good. What throttle housing is that ?

It's a momentary switch.

Started looking at the electricals.

Already have a question.

Does the frame need to be grounded?

Was thinking the frame is only grounded so that ground wires could be attached to the frame, instead of running all wires back to the battery negative.

Maybe there's another reason - like, it's better to ground devices closer to where they're located - or some other shit I don't know. Probably don't want to ground to aluminum, right?

I think most aluminum frame bikes ground through the frame

A steering damper dampens steering oscillations. If it starts to leak, it may become a steering dampener. There's no such thing as a dampner.
