Hey birdo, here's a pic of how my dash plate is mounted



It's pretty straight forward and simple and subject to change when my windshield shows up

Back in the saddle

Well I got my chain installed



but I still have this little problem



I have a sprocket cover/case saver from XRs only on the way but I wanted to put something on there.

I found out that the reason I couldn't shift the bike out of gear was because the chain was wedging the shifter down so apparently the only damage from my chain was the sprocket cover and the chain it's self.

Barron thanks.

I got 19000 miles out of my stock set. Probably could have pushed it farther. I tried to save moeny and bought the Primary drive set 14/48. I don't have much on it but I can see that it won't last too long. That crazy break in the chain has me reconsidering using the chain. I have a 15/45 coming just in case it pooches earlier than expected.

Holy shiat!!!

I've only got 7500 kms on my bike, and I'm on my third chain ... it amazes me how you guys make your chains (and sprockets) last so long.

Chain life

This is What my chain life has been.

At 13,700 miles replaced original DID O ring chain with new Did O ring chain. Replace sprockets with Suntour sprockets. Replaced Chain slider. It was worn through and chain was rubbing swing arm.

25,172 Replaced chain with DID O ring chain. Replaced chain slider. At 25490 replaced both sprockets. (They were back ordered)

33,200 replaced chain and sprockets. DID O ring chain suntour sprockets.

47,030 Replaced chain, DID non O ring. Replaced sprockets, suntour

48,153 Replaced chain with DID O ring chain. (Master Link broke)

55,144 In preparation for a long trip, replaced chain with RK X ring chain and new suntour sprockets. This chain and sprocket set were not wore out. I just didn't want to deal with finding a new chain and sprockets on the road. I'll finish them off later.

Current milage on the bike is 67,833.

On the first 2 chains I use chain wax for lube. After that I have used PJ1 black label. Chain wear has been comparable with both lubes, but I have not worn out a chain slider since switching to the PJ1.

Here you go

I could have replaced it with an OEM one but I have wanted one of those things for a while. Until now I just couldn't see spending the cash on it, but since I have to replace it anyway...

I usually run IRC GP110's on the tar and I have a set in the garage but I was just lazy and wanted to get the last miles out of the 606's. They will be coming off before any more out of the city trips. The only high speed part of the trip was the return home. I hit the slab because it was raining Noah's flood. Oil temps hovered around 200F in the pouring rain and mid 70's for two hours of 70 - 80. GPS max speed when I got home said 82.

John
Oh I see you don't normally run 75 on knobs it was the rain. Must have been bad we got 5 inches in that storm and didn't even get mentioned on the news.


I found out why my highway ride was so bad, bent front rim. Maybe I should look into some IRC GP110's too

I replaced with the stock unit. I'm talking about the one that wraps around the front of the swing arm. Part # 52170-MN1-681

I see you have your CC vent hose and filter routed right in front of your rear tire ... probably not the best place to have it. All the mud/dirt/water that you go through is going to be slung directly into the CC filter with it there, which could possibly contaminate your oil. It's better to have it mounted in a position where it will be exposed to minimal water/mud/dust. I have mine located up behind the tank and under the sidecover, and I've seen others mount it underneath the seat.
