Got a set of tubes on order for the back tires, should be here in a little less than a week. Can't wait to really run her through her paces.

Thanks. In all honesty, they're the next best thing to a wheel horse or sears with the mods I've done.

Tubes got here yesterday, i got em in today and got her a little muddy. Lots of fun with all the v twin torque. Hard to believe i got the clutch just right on the first try, considering how everybody else on here fights with em.

I need to start getting some stuff on her, bumper and rear rack is really what I'm thinking.

I really like the v twin sound. Looks like it has good power too, didn't sound like it struggled at all.

Yeah with the governor you can put it in any gear and it just kinda goes lol.

Took her out for a good ride today. Turns out the brakes aren't as good as i thought they were, went for a ride rolling backwards down a hill. Managed to dodge all the trees on the way down lol.

The brake is still hooked to the clutch pedal, that needs to change. The range shifter kind of sucks where it is too, i might do what allis did and move the shifter up to where i can reach it.

I've almost got the 633 shift pattern down. Lol

Yeah I hated that range selector on the side right off the bat, not much leverage on it and not comfortable to reach.


Also dual sticks looks cooler, haha.

Yeah i don't like having to lean down and move my leg to shift ranges. And dual stick are definitely neat, lol.

As I was driving this yesterday I realized there's not as much difference in speed between the two ranges as you might expect. My Snapper LT16 has a much bigger difference between high and low range than this 633 does.

It's funner that way.

This thing has pretty much been turn-key, every time i get away from my school work. The left rear tube seems to be leaking though, and it's one of those slime tubes. Gross. I guess it's not fast enough to be an issue though as the tire has only gone down the slightest bit since I filled it.

I hope the person that invented these slime tubes gets the death they deserve. I've never gotten a patch to stay on a tube with slime in it.

I watched the "project farm" video on youtube about different types of tire slimes, and the moral of the story is they don't work at all and make it harder and nastier for guys like us to actually fix the leak the right way.

Whats up folks, been a while with this one.

She sat for a while, probably 3 months, til i dragged her out of the store the other day to put her back in order. I had scabbed the fuel pump off to get me friend's Kohler v twin running. Had to clean the carb as I guess it sat full and the ethanol deteriorated and clogged the jets. I ended up just getting a new pump and fuel filter as well.

Here you can see i put a pan seat on her, i found one with a back for my friend so he let me have his.

I also got mutt's green bumper back from my friend as he got rid of his craftsman for a Sears. I haven't decided if I'll put it on or just make one like Budgie's.
