Talking Too Freakin' Funny

This guy takes his bike to the dealer and when he gets it back it only goes in reverse:

I know for a fact that 4-strokes can run in reverse. I fly rc airplanes and you can accidently start them in reverse. But they are single cylinder with no transmission and no onboard starter. You bump start them from the prop and it can sometimes recoil backwards and it will start and run. You go to throttle up and the plane goes backwards! I don't think this could happen this easily in a motorcycle though.

Man I am sad....I just read through all those damn pages to see if they figured out the problem and here it is.

The bike has been fixed What happened was when they put the chain (530)on the bike it must have draped in between the swingarm pivot bolt and the countershaft sprocket.And there fore the chain was being rotated from the top making it go backwards. If I had taken the time to do the nickey mod I would have noticed it right away. The guys at the shop (procycles) say the 530 chain fits perfect inbetween the counter shaft and swing arm pivot bolt. So if you thought this was a hoax I would say try this to your own bike and see if it goes backwards. All I know is my bike is now fixed and now it needs to stop raining so I can ride the bitch.

I did this on my 175 yamaha. it was back in the 70's and i just put in new points and condenser. While tightening the fly wheel. I started the bike up and it went back ward. I called a yamaha shop and the guy just laughed and told me to spin the fly wheel the other way and it should go back to normal. it did. That was with magneto fly wheel. someone needs to tell the guy to spin the crank in the other direction.

Rain. Whats is this Rain i keep hearing?.

You beat me to it... that is the most messed up thing I ever heard of.
I wonder if the "tech" was an AMI graduate. OR maybe a previous employee of OCC.

That bonus sketch explains it well but could be a long download with all that high res detail.

Sarah Palin and friends can call it a snow machine all they want but Yamaha, Polaris and Bombardier plus the related magazines all seem to call them Snowmobiles.

Snow machines create snow on ski slopes. Just sayin'
