You sure that's just a hug?
...or, "carter pin," as my father used to (incorrectly but incessantly) call them. Imagine my surprise as a teenager when I first went to the store to get a box of "carter pins.""cotter pin" is what I think you meant. I have no idea if it will eliminate a rattle, but it makes sense to have those fittings tighter. Hope it helps those who seem to have this issue.
this thread is a little early this year ... usually comes after new yearsMine was solved months before I bought it, when I read it was a 4 stroke single cylinder, I accept and understand engine harmonics.
* and its the smoothest 4 stroke single ive ever owned as well.
funny how it still "rattled" after some nice Sato Rearsetsthat rattle comes from the rear set. is just from a metal washer on the inside of the foot peg/rear brake
bicycle mechanics in the US still call those "cottered" cranks, and all else are "cotterless". at least, us old mechanics do. we also keep the other kind of "cotterpins" on hand.
ha! sort of makes sense now. thanks!in- of inflame comes from en- [of enrage etc]
meaning eg, 'to make [something] happen'..
english is composite language with origins
in latin and old french etc..
conventions develop with use and pronunciations,
thus spellings of words.. type flavour or realise
and usa spellcheck demands no 'u' and 'z' for 's'..
enrage used to be inrage, meaning to make rage
[rather than un rage].. think of inflame as enflame..
paper is flammable when flame touches it
but petrol soaked paper inflammable
when the flame is a distance away..
thanks! as an english language nerd I find this fascinating. sort of makes sense now!
inflammable precedes flammable,
the in- used as an intensifier, thus
something 'able to' flame compared to
something 'made to' flame..
invaluable, intense, etc mean made valuable
or made tense, rather than not valuable etc..
