Hey guys, remind me, stock chain size and length? 17/41 are stock sprockets, correct? (950SM)

Ok, a little searching reveals 525 x 120 links, and 17/41 sprockets as stock. If someone can confirm, I need to buy! :)

Thanks Natty, looks like a good setup. I'll either go with that, or I'm thinking about a VM2 kit with AFAM sprockets from sprocket center for $200.

Question

Hey guys- great thread- lots of good info!
I've got an 06 thats new to me about a month ago. 1100 miles and all stock from what I can see. I noticed today while the bike was warning up that the exhaust pipe off the rear cylinder got cherry red. The the rest of the exhaust looked normal. Went for a short ride- bike ran normal- went I got off it was red in the same spot and the fan was kicking on with 4 bars on the temp gauge. Should I be concerned?

Please advise....

I've had that happen at idle with the choke all the way on.

If this is happening without the choke on I'd say you've got quite the lean condition happening.

I agree with 900rider, and will add to the point... These are high compression engines with a moderately agressive cam. It's perfectly normal. I wouldn't be concerned.

I'd gut that puppy of her pipes and miles of hose restrictions ASAP though. My bike felt liberated once complete.

4-5 bars is normal if you get above that your starting to over heat.

Pissed red pipes

Thanks guys. Pleasant weather is getting scarce here in the North East; I plan on removing the evap can when I put it up for the winter and eventually the SAS when I can scrape up enough cheddar for some new cans. Right now I can't stop riding it long enough to mess with it.
Again- great thread fellas, I really appreciate the input.

Reminder, when bleeding your clutch, make sure to put the little runner boot/gasket from the resevoir back on facing the right direction. I put mine on backwards.....which I found out on top of a mnt 40 miles from the nearest town tonight. We popped the cover, spun it and we're able to get enough pressure at the lever to work me up to 4th gear. Which got me home. Got air in the lines and will need to re-bleed with unicorn blood, I mean Magura Blood tomorrow.

I had a clutch issue this weekend while on a 3 day trip to WV. The bike wouldn't downshift coming into my gas stop at Franklin, WV. After gassing up, it seemed OK again, so I headed north for Petersburg. Bike shifted OK for a bit, then the clutch lever went totally soft. So I made it to Petersburg, jammed a couple downshifts to poke through town (hit the light green even) and stopped in a Sheetz.

Sure enough, the clutch reservoir was way low and I had managed to get air in the line. Sigh. No place to get Magura unicorn blood on a Sunday, so I recalled that people have suggested using lightweight fork oil (no joy on a Sunday) or ATF. So I bought a quart of ATF and flushed/bled the system right there in the Sheetz parking lot. Clutch felt great, so I continued home with no issues.

After I got home, I googled around a bit and found many people recommend using ATF over the Magura blood because it has good lever feel, is cheap and readily available if needed, and won't hurt the engine if some was to leak into the engine oil.

I don't know where my clutch fluid went, but I did just install an Evoluzione slave cylinder a few weeks ago. I've put 2K miles on it without issue, but perhaps I had tiny leak at the bango bolt or something. I hope the slave seal is good (since it's brand new), but if not, it comes with spares. So I'll keep a close eye on the fluid level and watch for any leaks or minor changes in clutch lever feel.

So that's something to remember if you find yourself needing clutch fluid in the middle of BFE...

As an aside, I turned over 43K miles on the SMR this weekend. The SMR now has more miles on it than my previous high mileage bike, a 2002 Triumph Sprint RS that I put 42,968 miles on. Can't think of a bike that I would replace the SMR with, so it'll get a lot of mid-life preventative maintenance this winter, and I'm just going to keep putting the miles on.
