I wouldn't be able to explain it mechanically, but there's a reason 530 chains are used on literbikes....

A quality 520 chain can handle WAY more power than the L could ever produce.

Ultimate strength is roughly the same but the 525 will last longer {wear better}.

Nah, she didn't get a ticket, she was definitely texting though. The funny thing was that at first my car looked like it took most of thee damage, but after her husband showed up and opened the hood that all changed, all the accessories on the front of the car are "pushed back"...

When I was going home last weekend I counted 8 people in a 3 hour trip texting. Usually in the left lane going slow...

If your worried about the chain just get a 520 rated for a higher displacement engine. It will be a stronger chain. See manufactures data to make your decision.

I gotta go with ruts in hard-baked mud as worse than sand... even better when hidden in tall grass!

I hate the ones I can see clearly, but still manage to fall into.Same phenomena as black holes I think.

Do you find yourself falling into black holes frequently?

People who are running the big oil cooler will need a oil bypass to prevent intake piston suffing and to cold of oil temps..

Send me the cylinder and piston so I can take a look at it and repair it for you, there will be no charge for reboring and honing if that's what it needs, for the piston you can pay me for that when you get the money.

Please replace your crank seal and add a oil bypass or disregard the oil cooler altogether, after all you have the big finned head I don't see a need for it.
Or add a piece of cardboard in front of it or go to the smaller XR400 cooler, that's why Honda engineered the 400 cooler the size they did......same for the XR250 cooler it's even smaller.. too cold is as bad as to hot or maybe worse.

CW..
So that's why you put a 400 cooler on Wattner's bike?
