Labor Day Ride

I'm heading out tomorrow for a four-day ride up around Mount St. Helens, Mt. Rainier, Mt. Adams and Mt. Hood (probably in that order). If anybody else is up in that area this weekend, wave if you see me. White DR650, purple frame, clear ScreensForBikes screen, Givi side luggage, a MotoFizz bag on top (with sleeping bag on top of that), etc. I have an ADV sticker on the back of my left-side case and an old-style ADV sticker on the headlight cowling under the windscreen. Oh and LED aux lights too.

I'll take lots of pix and try to do up a RR when I return.

Rob

Hey all, what is the name of the clip, or more importantly can it be procured separately that connects the turn signal wires to the main wiring harness? I don't want to cut mine to splice in some aftermarkets but would rather fab up an OEM connector.

These are what I used to wire up aftermarket LED signals w/o having to splice. Get 2 pairs (one for front/one for rear)

edit: I've put a good 2,000+ miles including being out in the rain and no issues yet with mine.

I tried finding a 13T front sprocket for a 520 conversion but it appears that none exists...is this true

Not sure they do. Instead, go the other direction. A number of us are running 16/46 (520) for road use, then keep 14T and 15T's around for off-road. I love this gearing setup... had it on my bike for about 13k miles and it's ideal for the road. If I'm going to do extended dirt, the 15T goes on in a matter of minutes.

They have one at Procycle. It is in the "Individual 520 Sprockets & O-Ring Chains" section. It costs $19.95.

frecks screwed with this post 08-30-2012 at 01:28 PM Reason: Added the price.

Can you use a 525 rear sprocket with a 520 chain?? I would put a fresh sprocket on anyway if your rear sprocket is worn.

No, but I am pretty sure you can use a 525 chain with 520 sprockets.

I have a 520 13t sprocket for limited use with my 525 chain when the going gets tough. Just haven't had a need to use it yet, so I can't report on it.

It's not worn at all-relatively new

The bike doesn't do this in the rain.. just when I hit a puddle pretty fast. It's forcing water into something it seems and takes a long time to dry out afterwards.

Bump.

If it's like my FZ1, no. It means you get to buy a new coil to get the wires. Check eBay first. I had to do that with my FZ1... a pair of new coils and plug wires was $35 shipped. Couldn't beat that. New ones woulda cost $200.
