Yep....I do believe I haven't been using the gas now lol. That mixed with the feed rate and no wonder I am not getting good results.If your welds are filled with bubbles like an arrow chocolate bar then you do not have any gas turned on or it's run out. The splatter he is probably talking about is because he is pushing too much wire and it can't melt it fast enough or both too much heat and wire feed.....you can get small splatter looking results if the settings aren't correct.....nothing like fluxcore wire though! That shit is nasty! BUT again IF set up well it too can give extremely good welds....we used to run 48 feet at a time times 4 for each main beam on some trailers.....it was a nasty job.
Yeahhhhh I might not have been using it the whole time hahaha. I have to fix something up today so I will take a look see and make sure there is gas in there.Unless you turned it on, there's no gas.
Thanks! I am very happy with how they turned out too.DUDE THOSE LOOK SEARING.
Extremely cool work!
Thanks Robert! It's definitely a labor of love, but I am having a blast doing it. And you got it lol, I have to get this bike all finished before school starts up again as I will have very little time to work on it then. So for now it is a juggling act to get it all done in time.Love the exhaust system and your treatment of the foot pegs...marvelous! Keep plugging away. You got a good thing going. (It is December now, so believe you are busy in the garage, wrench in one hand, the other scratching your head waiting for that next clever idea).
LOL, you should see me trying to lay stuff out on the bike, I have scissors and cardboard in my hands, a sharpie in my mouth, tape on my feet and a rag over my shoulders.....no room for anything else hahaAnd a beer in the other hand

That too LOL!Don't drink and wrench. (I screw up enough sober.)
After doing all these things I now have it so the tire no longer rubs on anything and the rear fender does not hit the hoop. It is a very tight clearance and I may add another smaller limiter in the shock just to be sure, but with the heavy duty springs and if I adjust the preload properly, I'd be surprised if it ever bottomed out fully like this. Still, I wanted to make sure if it ever did happen I was covered, and now it all fits good.

Yeah you are correct Owen, that tire is pretty much finished. There isn't much more I can do in terms of the frame to get better clearance except upturning the hoop or cutting a space out for the tire, both of which I was hoping to avoid.Won't that rub once you put a new tire on? The tread is looking pretty worn in the centre on that one.
You do have a good point. I didn't think about the riding 2 up either, which makes a big difference. I will finish up the rear electrical pan tonight as that needs to have enough clearance too (where the wheel well used to sit), then I will work on making sure that there is no way the tire can rub on anything. More than likely I will just add that spacer, but I will also check to see if there is anything else I can do with the hoop/frame as the more I limit the shocks the stiffer they will have to be.Don't try avoiding making more clearance for the tire, whats going to happen if you ride 2 up?? If I could suggest that you get that solved now before you are finished and then realize its a problem once things are painted and wired.
This is the time to solve these problems
