Technical

Who says you don’t need it ?

You certainly do; it’s what connects the motor to the transmission ! Ok you get ten points ‘cause you guessed right. It’s the “primary” – the thing on the left hand side of your bike that spins at 4000 RPM when you’re travelling on the highway.

The primary comes enclosed from the factory and it consists of a double-row chain that drives two sprockets. One sprocket wraps around the clutch basket and the other is attached to the motor output shaft. The whole assembly bathes in oil, but not just any oil, special primary oil that has an additive so that the clutch plates don’t slip. One liter is all you need in the casing.

We all had to deal with lubricants for an array of reasons. It doesn’t take a university degree to realize that a shaft properly lubricated will slide much easier when inserted into a cylinder.

Our Readers

By Eric Bourret

I can honestly say that I’m a true biker, photographer and accomplished traveler. I’ve crossed Canada and the United States back and forth several times on a bike and after riding different Japanese custom as well as sport models I fell in love with the 2009 Harley-Davidson Dyna Street Bob. Like many other motorcycle enthusiasts, after I had ridden it for a season I wanted to make it mine. I wanted to make it different from the others – customize it and make it a unique “bagger”.

This project began in September of 2011 with a visit to Martin Provencher at HP Concept in Drummondville, Quebec. This is when all the lights came on ! In discussing the project with Martin, a specialist when it comes to all modifications, all barriers came down. Everything was possible

THE 2012 RHINEBECK

By Bob McKay

The AMCA Rhinebeck Grand National meet held this June was everything it was advertised to be and much more. Each year the American Motorcycle Association puts on many events across the USA but a favourite to many people and definitely one of mine is the Rhinebeck, New York venue. This is more than just a swap meet.

Set up time was Thursday and probably the best day to find the best deals if you are a vendor that is as the gates were not open to the public until Friday. As the trucks and trailers are unloaded the vendors have the first crack at finding that “one part” that has eluded them or to pick up some pieces that they may not need themselves but know they can turn a good profit on over the next two days by buying and selling them.

Bibeau Moto Sport

By Suzie Gauthier

For the majority of people work and passion are not synonymous but for the owners of the family run business named Bibeau Moto Sport in Val-d’Or, one doesn’t function without the other. This team has been able to combine the love for bikes with labour, a happy combination that has contributed to the success of their business for forty years.

René Bibeau was always immersed in the world of motorcycling. He was among many things a fanatic for motorcycle racing. When he wasn’t racing himself, where by the way he had the habit of winning trophies, he became a dirt track and ice racing promoter. René was so passionate about racing that before engaging in the sacred vows of marriage – for better or for worse – he made his future wife, Liliane, cross her heart and promise that she would let him race bikes without compromise. Of course she said yes ! He found a woman that shared the same love for motorcycles that he did. A few years later their union delivered the company’s current co-owner, Steve.
