I saw here somewhere that I should drill the length of the stud? Shouldn't I stop a bit short, maybe 1/8" or so, to leave some stick out?
Next is another oil question- What do you guys do for chain lube? They use salt here on the roads, I imagine the chain is going to need lubed daily. ATF? Used motor oil? I typically just use regular chain lube, but I can see that getting expensive quick.
Bike is a KLR650.
Exactly the length of the entire stud should give you the perfect seating depth.
Lube the chain frequently, then spray it off with warm water and re-lube when it's above freezing.
