As long as the "Easy Place" isnt in the fairings on the side of stock tanks it wont be an issue. the Safaris dont intrude anywhere the stock stuff didnt.

Depends on how long a chain you want to run and if you swap back and forth from dirt setup often.

I find 17" with 17/42 is fun and good all around. (It's like running 17/45 on the Stock rims) If I wanted a little lower RPMS and higher cruise speed I'd go with a 40 rear. This should still work with the 118 length chain.

I've run 17/38, but the stock 118 length chain is almost too long. It's ok if it's NEW, but get some stretch in it and there is no more slot left in the swingarm.

The Super dukes ran 116 length chains stock and 17/38 gearing. I think at 75mph on the freeway I was arond 4,000 rpms or less with this setup on my ADV with 17"s.

BTW- the Super Duke 17"s don't use the same sprockets as the ADV bikes.

Bolt pattern,

They are 2 different cush drive systems requiring unique sprockets for each.

Thanks for the response. I was looking at the space on the outside edges of the faring subframe. The upper faring covers (where the stock blinkers mount) provide enough space to allow the parts to mount there easily - and yet be far enough away from the wiring plug and back of the light to minimize the need to wrap and stuff all of the wiring into a small(er) place.

Got my parts from CJ today. Thanks man!

Water pump kit, Clutch Slave, K&N Filters, CJ footpeg ext., tool pouch and spark plug wrench



Got started tonight. Just had to loosen the front header pipe bolts and gently pry pipe up to get out top water pump bolt.....just in case anybody thought they might need to take off the front pipe on the SE, no need.







Hopefully with some luck I'll get everything all done tomorrow, including oil change and coolant flush.

Bivy refresh for the Adventure


Cleaned house for the 950.

Time to replace the tools... the ones that survived the holocaust.

Where to put the bike lift?
