In hopes to prevent premature cam chain wear.

It has not been proven yet. I think the load on the chain and the quality of the chain means we just need to replace it every 10,000. miles and there is more risk with the manual set up if you get it wrong. IMO.

Sounds good to me, Dan. I've been sending everybody your way since you told me you were stocking this stuff.

I can attest to that Dan. He has ! He pointed me your way for my clutch bell bushing.
Thanks Rob

Whay say you?
How many cam chains do you guys replace?
How much wear does a 6K mile chain have when it it is removed?
What cam chain failures have you seen?
Is running the chain beyond 6K risk wearing the sprockets?

Lastly, does anyone replace the connecting rod at 6K miles as the owners manual recomends ( my 2000 model manual sez this anyway)?

[QUOTE=fritzcoinc]Whay say you?
How many cam chains do you guys replace? Depends, every rider different. No simular results, some go over 15k some as little as 3k

How much wear does a 6K mile chain have when it it is removed? see above

What cam chain failures have you seen?No failures, just stretched beyond limit

Is running the chain beyond 6K risk wearing the sprockets? not sprockets as much as the reed valve it hits

Lastly, does anyone replace the connecting rod at 6K miles as the owners manual recomends ( my 2000 model manual sez this anyway) NO

I did the side panels as a test to try out krylon fusion and so far i'm impressed. Soon it will be getting a new cam chain. Haven't checked it in a while but i'm at 9000 miles so replacing it won't be a bad idea.

There is no rational reason with any engineering data to back it up.
