Dual Snap Rings


While I was in Seattle I picked up a V1 turned Puch clutch bell for the KTM conversion. This fancy item was forged deep in the liar of Seattle wizard Michael Mike. When I picked it up he gave me some wizardly advice and suggested running dual snap rings to keep the crank from walking […]

Scary Busey’s getting a suspension UPGRAYEDD along with the new motor build. First up is getting the magnum swingarm I’ve had sitting around mounted up. With the longer swingarm, it was time to chop the fender down. I used Jeremy D Bandit’s maxi frame as some inspiration. Jeremy is a master of meticulous and beautiful […]





yarrrrg, another polini seize. this time with an estoril, what i thought was an unseizable setup. i put 2500 miles on the same setup (15 bing polini estoril) last year with zero problems. this has me slightly questioning the porting i did, or maybe it’s just a series of flukes. well…here’s my first addition to […]

devin brought down a bunch of prototype pipes this weekend. one of them was designed specifically for the puch polini cylinder and we used gary busey to test it. my current setup was a 15 bing, puch hero cdi, polini and modified dmp (estoril) pipe. it gps’d today at 50.0 mph. insert motion left’s brand […]

a few things have happened and i haven’t been posting.  i just got back from brodeo (which was AMAZING) so this is going to be quick. – i tried installing the za50 cdi benji sells on my derbi. i followed cuperzack’s blog post on how to install it and had no luck. finally, after flipping […]
