7075, 7076... Whatever It Takes

  • 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.

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

    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..

      @This Old Tony
      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...

    • This Old Tony
      This Old Tony  10 days ago

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

  • Betty Hancock
    Betty Hancock 11 days ago

    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.

  • TrueBlueEG8

    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...

    How many people actually think a thin rotor couldnt cause soft brakes?? Well, you are all wrong. Hydraulics are simple, volume of master cylinder vs volume of slave cylinder + any extra wear compensation it must perform.
    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.

    Why should I say some gross words like these?
    Thats simple.
    Because YT comments system allows me to do so.
    And if I can do something, I usually do it.
    You thought about my mom for a second, huh?
    Yes, I do that too.

      When you replace the pedals, the builtup metal on the frame would hold them at too great of an angle

    You just can’t help yourself can you? Leading us innocent susceptible viewers a stray, when will you change your ways?
    “A purple shock” he says as I’m listening to the video while I’m doing my own thing. “Hmm a purple shock I should rewind and check it out” I thought to myself. 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.

    Nice bike though

    I just have to say that I'm super jealous of your shop I'm no machinist . I'm just a lowly mechanic but I would love to have a lathe, mill, welder ,etc. Just being able to fabricate would make life super easy in some cases.

    Damn dude. That opening scene made my nutsack curl up. Almost lost my index finger doing just that. Half inch radius round over bit spinning at 20k rippms on a giant pin router. Back side of a guitar body. Hit an inconsistency in the wood and climb cut. Felt like my hand had been smashed with a sledgehammer. Saw what the insides of my finger looked like that day. Can't assume that a bearing bit is a safe alternative to fixturing/templates. I know, who am I to lecture This Old Tony, and glad you still have all your digis. Just saying. Fingies too close to spinnamathing = risky business. I left the guitar shop some time after to go to music school (while I still had ten fingers). Never used that router again, and any time I walked by it while it was in operation I had an uncontrollable need to shove my hands into my back pockets. I have a small shop in the garage these days and still like to make stuff/play with tools that can dismember me, but 100% focus and careful thought and planning are mandatory. I know you know. Again, just saying. So anyway, thanks for all the awesome content, stay safe and Merry Christmas!

    Interrupting yourself with yourself is a very fine technique. Much better than saying, "anyway." Good job using the media.
