Put down your Pepsi/adult beverage. Buckle-up at your PC and prepare yourself. I am getting ready to have a great big piece of "Humble Pie" (coming from a Sooner this is very, VERY difficult).

The Mad Scramble has ended. I pulled the tank, the plastic, the seat, carb, radiators, cylinder, piston, brake pedal, swing arm bolt, and removed all but ONE motor mount blot. To get the last motor mount bolt I needed to pull the flywheel cover. As I loosened the screw, I got this very sick feeling.

A month or so ago, I installed a Stealthy flywheel weight. Upon removing the other four screws, you guessed it, the flywheel was flopping around like a fish out of water. The nut had backed off and was dragging on the cover. The slack had caused the drift key to shear. A $2.00 fix! Now I'm off to get gaskets, radiator fluid, circlips, rings, and an industrial size tube of LOCK TIGHT .

Is Humble Pie best eaten warm or cold. I putting on my bib now.

Boy did you luck out. I'd eat Humble Pie everyday if it saves me $500. It looks like you still have the lucky touch after all. Watchout Dirtweek Raffles, Bswift is back! :cool:

That's what you get for putting a dang flywheel weight on that awesome motor! A CRIME~!

Good news! How come that never happens to me? If I think there is a small problem, it always turns-out to be the worst possible problem. :(

F/S 7oz flywheel weight.

Slightly used. Not suitable for high performance engines. The taming effect will cause a engine fart that will leave you realing. Recommend this part to someone you don't like.:p

The Mamba is a fire breathing, roost throwing, arm stretching beast once again. The resurrection is complete. Let the packing begin.:)
