  1. For anyone in the future doing a brown dog mml especially with a 4cylinder, spend the money and get the ultra-flex rubber bushings to start with. I daily drive my jeep 34 miles round trip and it has started to vibrate my fillings out with the poly bushings. Took about 3 hours to change them out when I should have got them in the first place but some on the net said it wasn't that bad........they lied! Maybe not as bad in the 6cylinder but the 4 cylinder is a unbalanced motor and at idle you couldn't see out the mirrors it shook so bad.
  2. The jeep jamboree is coming to the Greenbrier this year Nov. 6-8 but its already sold out! Plus it cost $500 for a family of 4.
  3. Nice job, looks good. :2thumbsup:
  4. Its been so cold and snowy he hasn't got to ride as much as he would like too but I took a little vid of him having a blast.
  5. I hear ya Brandon! My morning trip I saw no cars and 1 plow truck and it was on a primary road and that was the best snow driving you can do, its the plows that open the gates for all the idiots that think they can drive in the snow and apparently plow drivers in your neck of the woods need some lessons . Advance auto opened today so I got a new belt and put it on and am ready for more snow tonight! 1-3 inchs maybe?
  6. No snow wheeling home:( went to get gas when I got off at 6pm and the belt broke on the jeep! Made it to my moms house and parked jeep. Father in law picked me up at 7:30 and I just got home at 9:45! Truck wrecks, idiot drivers and a lack of plowed roads made it a long ride, made the last 2 miles home in a rhino on 26" itp mud lites and it was struggling on the unplowed road but it was fun!:2thumbsup:
  7. Went to work in 12 inchs of snow @ 4:30 this morning......beautiful! VDOT hadn't touched the side roads and it was fun in the ole jeep, the km2's are great in the snow not a bit of problem. Pic of jeep right out of the garage.
  8. Put the broken starter clutch back in minus the one roller that fell out and bike turns over smooth now. So I tried to start it and first time fired right up! :wings: Pulled it out the garage and fired it up and let it warm up for a few minutes then I drove it out the drive way......runs perfect. My son is now practicing riding under the flood lights in our drive way (just learning how to start out in first and make a left turn and back in 1st gear) his smile says it all!
  9. A 240 ft. Lb. Electric impact and held the flywheel with my hand and the nut came off no problem. A large 2 jaw puller and the flywheel was off in a minute or two. Thanks for the ideas guys. I use the rope in the cylinder trick on chainsaws of course they don't have valves where this 4 stroke bike does and its all put together and not wanting to take it back apart just yet. Here's a pick of the starter clutch....its done. Gonna pull the clutch cover and look for the piece that's missing missing and wash the bottom end out. Maybe its chewed up and that's what the shavings are from?
  10. Having trouble getting the flywheel bolt off. Don't have the rubber strap flywheel holder tool. Will it hurt it to put in gear and apply rear brake and hit it with a impact. I've done it on cars before but not sure on these little bearings, if its just the starter clutch I don't want to screw anything else up.
  11. If the starter is removed the crank spins like it should, with the started on it feels like its dragging on something so from a little reading I'm thinking the starter clutch. Gonna pull the flywheel and look at it. I rode a 89 honda xr100 for my first bike and never had to do anything thing to it so this bike stuff is new to me. Thanks for the offer matt but if I get to that point I will probably just part this thing out.

  13. My son just drained the oil, alot of metal shavings in it. Not looking good at all!
  14. Well I got it to start after adjusting the carb a little but......after it ran for a few seconds I heard a loud squealing sound like the starter was still turning or something so I shut it off. Pulled the starter and cleaned it up good and put back in. Bike wouldn't turn over right so I got to looking and it was trying to turn the wrong direction. I had put the magnets on 180 degrees off so I pulled it back off and fixed the starter. Now it turns the correct direction but has a grinding scraping noise in the lower end, I have turned it over by hand and it feels like something is dragging so now I am going to drain the oil andpull the covers and have a look see. Hope its something simple.
