Shut up.

Is that American enough for you? Talk motorcycles, maybe the DR650 for example.

Anyone know where I can get the little magnet that mounts to the rotor to transmit to the vapor unit?

Anything? ... Thanks
If it's the triangular Procycle plate it should have fitted fine with the 14 tooth (since that's the point of it). One can only assume they put a clip retainer on it. Why? Who knows. Perhaps they snapped the retainer bolts off in the sprocket and just left the sprocket floating... I'd be checking it.



And for the Aus slang posts, we abbreviate "Good Day Sir", to "G'Day"..... jeez mate, if ya gonna use Aussie slang ya gotta spell it right....

Thanks! Your list reminded me of two favorites of my own, above. That dartboard comparison will be used in the near future.

Thanks! I could NOT think of the word "slang." Google is my friend.

I was referring to the STOCK plate shown above. That one is easily ground down a bit to allow the 14T clearance. Maybe the Argentines made their own retainer plate? Or ... ? I also prefer the stock plate to a Snap Ring. Anyway, sorry for the confusion. Good luck!

Thanks guys. It's the Procycle retainer plate that I still have in my bag. I haven't even taken the cover off to see what's up in there. Daylight now so that's my first order of business. The mech. must have used a c-clip or ? I'll report back, hopefully with pics.

I learn a little more about this bike every day thanks to the collective knowledge of fellow DRers.

Grifter ... I'm in Puerto Madryn on my way south to where else - Ushuaia. Been on the road almost 6 months at this point. Fun? I can't begin to describe hahaha.

Shinkos - one last post

So I'm going to try out the Shinko 700's for my road trip. Thanks for all the input yesterday, much appreciated. I like the idea of having a bit more of a knob on the back as opposed to running a 700 on the front and 705 on the rear. We'll see if they last the 5K trip or not, hopefully they will.
The closest sizes available in the 700's are 4.6/17 (the size chart says the 120.90-17 uses 4.25-4.5). Hopefully that extra .10" isn't going to be an issue. The 3.0/21 falls within spec for the 90/90-21 front. These should work fine, right?

but I'm wondering if any of you have come up with the end-all/be-all windshield solution ??? we go through this conversation every couple of years and I'm just wondering if anyone has one they really, really love yet?

I would run the 5.10/17" rear and the 3.00/21" front. You never know about tread life, some can't get 3500 miles. I got 4000 miles and still had an 1/8" of rubber left till smooth. Then again, I got 6K out of my last rear 705. YMMV...

Seems like that should fit up ok. I'm running a 130/80-17 now and that fits fine. Thanks.
