Yep. I used the bolt in magnet (replaces a disc rotor bolt)... I didn't trust glue to hold a magnet in place.

You might notice that I've rounded off the lower - outer edges of the sensor to get it all to fit better and pick up the magnet in my preferred location.

Didn't have a good spot on the other disk. Or couldn't find a "sweet spot" on both. I'm not running conventional SM rims so it was a little more complicated. One less thing as well when I change wheel sets. Just a brake line and spacer. Since I also run KTM guards no fiddling required.

Anyone here using an RM front rim

If you are, did you use a custom spacer or did you leave the speedo spacer/ pick up on. Thanks

Bike maintenance and luggage question

Attempted my first tire change on a motorcycle tonight. Things went well, lots of goggling and a few beers. Almost had my tire reinstalled when I realized the PO removed the bead lock? I am assuming he used on the road only so did not worry about it. A quick trip to the dealer tomorrow will take of it, so no worries.

I am preparing for a rally ride next month and I need advice on a bag. I will be traveling light so nothing too big. I just want it to fit on the factory rack, and be able to carry a change of clothes, a few tools, and toiletries. Anybody have similar need and knows what I should get? Input appreciated

A Kriega or Wolfman tail pack... or something like a 18-20L Lowe Alpine day pack for a quick overnighter.

I've got a Kriega tail pack which is normally full of tools and spares. I have used the 28L Air Zone close to home.

http://www.lowealpine.com/eng/produc...id=11&type=man

I use these brands because they're convenient... there are probably a hundred other choices, but these should give you an idea
Nice! Thanks for the info. I was curious when a dry rotted piece of rubber came out that I would assume would wrap around the bead lock. Serious tire noob so, I am guessing.

Which Lake? it ain't Chestemere. Only time I ever tried that was the num bum and it was awesome. Ice racing isn't big here so now I could manage it I can't.

This is Ghost Lake just west of Calgary. Some friends made a quick video of their ice time out there.

Does anyone know for certain whether a rear sub frame off an 'S' will fit on an 'E'? I have an 'E' and would like to get some pillion pegs so the wife can hop on the back and keep her happy.

Failing that does anyone have any other work arounds?

If it does work, does anyone have a rear frame with pegs they would like to part with?

tire change rear wheel assembly

Guys, another noob question here. Putting the rear tire back on and I am lost on the chain adjustment. I think i have to do something with the tear drop/half moon/numbered pieces but I really am lost. Searched youtube tt and here. May not be looking for the right thing, but I really want to get this project finished up. A point in the right direction would be much appreciated.

Bobby Ginger: The owner's manual is readily available on the internet. I'm surprised Suzuki hasn't got it posted on their website as most manufacturers provide them for download...because it is important to the safety of the operator to read it.
Cheers, Steve
