Well the weather cooperated today but the mailman didn't.
My documents did not arrive today, so I was not able to plate it. I did take her for a quick spin around the block though. She starts and runs nicely. Its going to take me a while to get get used to the way the shifter works. I've had heel-toe shifters on my Harley's and Royal Enfield, so I'm not new to the concept it's just seems that the throw is quite long so just rocking my foot doesn't seem to be quite enough to get it to shift up or down. Oh well.
The rear tire does seem to be loosing air somehow.
not sure if it's the air valve or I have a hole somewhere.
I decided to remove the chain guard bottom half to inspect the chain. All looks good as far as being oiled but looking closely at the chain and rubbing my fingers along the chain links, the chain looks to be of very poor quality, the edges are sharp, the pins that hold the links together look pretty cheap IMO, and the rear sprocket looks to be of the same quality. I have read a few members comments where they indicate that these chains wear out prematurely even when properly maintained and lubricated.
So this is something that I'll need to monitor. I think that a proper set of sprockets and an o'ring type chain would be on my purchase list.
Well again, unfortunately, I will busy and travelling for the next few weeks and won't have any time for the little Symba. So she is now parked in my own shed and under cover awaiting my return.
