I've been wanting to do a thread for awhile about random interesting Moped things you've discovered that haven't been written about on MA yet.
Doesn't have to be groundbreaking, just something cool that might help someone out.
This week I discovered a few things.
Didja know that:
1. Skateboard bearings are the same ID as Moby engine bolt, so you can turn the skateboard wheel down and press it into your motor mounts
2. If your trail tech temp battery wears out or craps out, and tto wont replace it, you can wire in the $6 harbor freight meat thermometer into the trail tech copper plug sensor. Not totally proven yet, but when I wired the hf meat thermo into the tto copper ring, it read exactly the same as my other trail techs at ambient temp.(64 deg at the time). Further testing is needed.
The hf meat thermo has a replaceable battery too, as long as you can solder.
3. If you want to add a bit of end bleed to a side bleed pipe, you can weld a female steel 1/4npt fitting to the end of the pipe, then drill a hole thru the pipe, then thread in a 1/4 male hose barb into the steel fitting. The hose barb quiets it down to the point where you dont even need to silence it. I drilled a 3/16 hole. (edited)
