  • Don't know if this was worth the effort, but was in a chatty mood. Come along for the ride as I sort out a few little things on a Factory Scorpa. We'll do bad things, I promise.

          I watch all of your videos in black and white. Don’t know why. Just seems like the right thing to do.

                          why not drop a weld in the steel bracket that holds the foot peg

                                I believe its called push back
                                I believe the drooping pegs are for bulleged people

                                  My friend was using a hand held router on a large piece of wood chamfering the edge and like yours it caught the edge then the router bit climbed up his arm
                                  Never seen such a vicious injury
                                  Took a couple surgeries to close about 12” long wound
                                  He was a experienced journeyman carpenter
                                  Took many months of healing and rehab to get his arm back to normal use
                                  A flying part like that could have also done some serious injury

                                    move that CDI before it gets ruined with you dump the thing. Scorpa has the WORST placement in the world for those. Then go ride more and stop worrying about stupid garbage lol.

                                        Why didn't you mention the frame as a option for correcting the pegs?? You have pegs mounted to a frame. .either can be used to resolve your problem...so what material is the frame where the pegs mount?? You can add your material there in various ways..

                                          You only needed a small thickness and you can tack it on for removal...i raced motorcycles for 15 years....it wouldn't do any harm if done right...which your capable of....it probably is damaged there as well?? Slightly but enough to add to the droop ..must have had a heavy rider to bend so much on a Trials bike!! I raced Motocross...

                                          true, but that would result in a permanent modification to the frame.

                                        1:35 yeah they were wrong it's not that the rotor is warped it is tiny tiny variations in the thickness of the rotor. Also you most likely got incremental improvements with each repair you did that you didn't notice. But fuck the haters it is what you say it is.

                                          Rotor warp is a bit of a misnomer, discs like these dont tend to warp. Pulsation and run-out is often caused by uneven distribution of burnt on brake linings, or cementation, (the pad material sticking to the disc, in uneven layers) and creating high spots or bumps on the rotor.

                                              spongy brake. Tapered pads, buckled rotor or rotor worn or machined tapered. Or very maybe a pad sticking in the calliper. Or very maybe a brake hose flexing too much.
                                              I have repaired all of those.

                                                Those for pegs will be fine, as long as the welding temperature didn't spread to places where it's important not to lose your temper...

                                                                            Lets say the volume of the slave is 10cc at full pressure with all new components with a release of 5cc into master at rest. Lets say the master has a 7cc volume at rest and the ability to move 5cc at stroke. Well, now lets take some metal off the rotor and increase the volume needed for proper pressure by 3cc. You now have soft spongy brakes.

                                                                            • Patrick Artner

Yeah, that seems completely logical and totally normal. What sane woman wouldn't be down for that? Especially in the name of a made up deity.

Well imagine my disappointment when I rewind and see nothing more than a common purple spring. I certainly hope you take a good hard look in the mirror my friend because I will never retrieve my 30 seconds of precious life I wasted on rewinding your misleading video.
