The glue is weak enough so you can pry the tire off. Just don't get the max strength stuff, I use the Locktite brand 200 strength.

EDIT: Push come shove you could probably use a mild solvent to...

I think you missed the "thought experiment" and "no practical purpose" part. And I never said the encoder is the be all end all of what I plan to do. Also never said that arduino tachs have never...

A mikuni carb and a different pulley ratio I think would do you some good. Stock carbs aren't that good at all. Also I'd shorten the intake track so you have a smaller area to pressurise. What's your...

I have done this mod to my normal 212 before. The issues you're going to run into are for sure the dowel pins. If I remember correctly I think I ended up only using one Honda dowel pin. I hogged out...

Yeah, since im a huge hack, i'll probably end up using toothpaste for lapping compound. I used a steel wire brush on the the outside of the valves, and a brass one for the more delicate areas.
