Picture Attachment problem (09 Jul 2022)

Due to the extraordinary growth of the membership and resources, we are once again bumping up against hosting limits. I am working on a fix. In the meantime, the forum should function, but you won’t be able to attach images. Working as fast s we can to fix. Thanks for your patience. - Makotosun

1974 DT100A Restoration was created by imagelessJAKE

Hello All,

I recently found a 1974 DT100A at a local garage sale outside Nashville which turned over smoothly and had spark and purchased it for a princely sum of $500 with 1974 original title and sales receipt!

I work in a Honda Dealership part time so I figured with the winter approaching and work getting slow this would be a perfect little project to tinker on.

The Good: 

With a fresh 6 volt battery - some pre mix fuel and a fresh spark plug - the bike started right up! Smokey and slow but it started and ran. 

The bike is mostly all there! its a complete bike that is relatively rust free

The electrics work - headlight tailight, turn signal indicator, brake lights

Speedometer works!

The Bad:

Oil pump was rusted beyond belief - and untrustworthy in my eyes. 

The front forks and triple tree appear to be swapped with a later model Enduro 90 with a low fender

The seat is ripped up pretty bad

Rattle can paint job from previous owner - as well as some signs of poorly crafted repairs.

Randomly missing bolts scattered throughout

The lower throttle cable is completely trashed   

The Project and whats been done!
Brand new throttle (upper and lower), brake and clutch cables were added to the bike  

New Handlebar, with grips and levers were added as well

A new later model oil pump from a 100 was added (no plastic priming gear)

Carb has been completely rebuilt with fresh gaskets/jets and the body run in the sonic cleaner

Clutch disassembled with new friction plates on the way (I suspect corrosion between the steels and friction plate caused the creep)

Seat cover acquired and sent off to the upholsterer for new foam to be made

New replica front fender acquired from DC plastics

Sent the Tank, Oil Tank, Fenders, and headlight bucket and brackets sent to the painters 

New forks and triple tree ordered - it might not be OEM and its strange but its going to be better then whats on there now.

New petcock as well.

First ride

Before sending it off to the painters, with the carb rebuild I took it on the road - and found that it bogged out at higher RPMS right before the powerband.

Word to the wise - check your jettings when you buy a Keyster kit - the main jet on the carb was 140 where as what came in the kit was 150.

After switching back to a stock main jet this bike RIPS - it goes about 50mph with my smaller size which feels awesome on such a smaller bike.

So unfortunately I cannot upload my images - it throws a red error text every time I upload even though they are underneath the file size limit. Will keep trying.

Are you using the big "attachments" button under the box where you enter the message?   Don't use the icons above the message box.

There is a limit to the number of pics per post but nothing should be blocking you unless your pics are an oddball format. 

Once you attach, insert them one at a time instead of the "insert all".

So I've tried as recommended - trying different files - one at a time, using the attachments button at the bottom of  post.

However, no matter how many variations I try and across different browsers its spits out an unique error code in red text.

Could Not Move File Into /Homepages/37/D93795775/Htdocs/Yamaha/Media/Kunena/Attachments/8297/D2e6307fbe3e655eac0861b973b4c42d.

They are from a Iphone that I've emailed myself but they are in standard jpeg format and under the file size limit.
 
Ever heard of anything like that?

I'm not a tech guru but that error message sounds like your browser can't access the photos on your device?

Are you trying to upload photos directly from emails?  That likely won't work.  Try saving the pics to your device first...

Okay,  I think I know what the issue is...  thanks Bill...  The website might be out of storage space?  I will send a note to Mako...  he will have to be the one to fix it.
