Yesterday I got the new exhaust adaptor fitted. It was pretty straight forward and the screw fitting made it really easy to attach. Unfortunately the exhaust is still too loud so I will either go back to my old exhaust or buy something a bit more quiet.

Today was the first time ive got out for a proper ride on the 103 since doing all the modifications. Its was awesome! I did about ten miles and the peugeot didnt miss a beat. I got up to 39mph before it would get a bit boggy so I may need to lean the main jet slightly. Low end power is ridiculous due in part to the circuit pipe. I may be able to gear it for a higher top speed while still keeping the hill climbing ability. The Simonini exhaust is so loud it gave me a headache. I will look into repacking the silencer.

Today I fitted the Domino throttle on the Peugeot which made a load of difference as the old one had a stiff mechanism. I also replaced the damaged cluch bell. My crankshaft seems to eat through these pretty quick. Finally I had a bit of a ride to try and get the carb tuned. After multiple stops and various adjustment I think im almost there. One more session should do it and then I'll book it in for MOT.

Today Sinclairio fitted his new Proma pipe and we took his Puch and my Peugeot down to an unused stretch of road to do some tuning and testing. It was a blast to ride the peds again and the Proma pipe performed better than his old pipe. I made some jetting changes but the peugeot still isnt running perfectly. Looking forward to our next ride.

After the last ride on the Tomos I noticed it bulge in the rear tyre. I suspected a dodgy innertube and bought a new one. But it turns out that the innertube was fine and the tyre was coming apart on the inside. Ive ordered a new tyre so it shouldn't be off to road for too long.

For my birthday I treated myself to a pair of white wall 17" sava tyres. So u whipped the wheels off as I wanted to spray the wheels white too. These wheels are off the Moby. This bike is on a very slow back burner. But these are one job ticked off a very long list.

I managed to get out and do a nine mile circuit on the Tomos. It felt great to be out and about on the bike especially now that it has a disc brake and will actually stop. I got back and thought I'd better do an oil change as its been ages. It turned out to been not to bad.

Today I took the Peugeot out for a test ride and instantly noticed an improvement with a leaner jet (85). I had also dropped the needle one notch to the second leanest notch. It accelerated much better but still some room for improvement. The top speed has increases too I think but still having problems with my speedo so no figures yet. The one thing I did notice was if I let off the throttle it sort of felt like it was bogging and would take a second or so to kick in when I throttled up.
I did a plug chop and its looking pretty good.
This evening I finally had some time to do a bit more tuning on the peugeot. I dropped the main jet 92 to a 88 and test rode it. It was much better than before but still a bit boggy. I swapped the main jet to a 85 so will test it again tomorrow.

The original engine stabilizer was doing the job pretty well but I did notice that under high revs the belt would flap about a bit. That would suggest to me that it needed to be tighter. In addition when I added the Doppler variator the left peddle crank would just hit the variator nut. So I decided to make a new stabilizer but as I didnt know how much longer it needed to be. I decided to make an adjustable one out of angle iron for added rigidity. I installed it on the second hole and now the peddle clears the variator 'just'.
So i will have to see how it performs.
