It would seem that it is the power commander causing the problems. Easiest to fix, but also probably the priciest! I unplugged it and rode around town with none of the hiccups and power loss. The bike had a touch less power in places but actually ran pretty well.

So what now? I guess try the power commander again to see if the issues re appear and then try a different map? Would rather not abandon the PCV as the auto tune just arrived in the mail.....

Thanks for the suggestions so far - I will dive into it when I get home.

That was with a 13 tooth/47 tooth sprocket. I also have a 14 tooth I'm gonna try. I suspect it will move the final counter shaft contact point on the chain away from the swingarm. Dunno if that will help though. When the rear suspension is compressed, the chain runs pretty close to the swingarm pivot.

I got my Moose/AXP plate today too but had already arranged to put tires on a friend's bike after work. I'll post up when I get to try it out, hopefully tomorrow. I've gotta go take some money in a friendly card game tonight, hopefully I'll cover the cost of that plate

more info on AXP and Moose skid plate here (mostly the last couple of pages):

a bit spendy for a piece of plastic, if you ask me.

I took BigDogs lead and am running 14/50 on my sprockets. Couldn't be happier. Gearing will be very similar to the 13/47 ratio. I've had the bike out on a hare scramble and motocross track, using the full suspension travel on the bike......with minimal contact with the slider. Highly recommend this combination.

Not sure if this was the case, or not.....but if your chain gets worn/dry (especially "kinked").....it'll eat right through a new slider. One guy on another forum wore through a brand new slider in 200 miles with a "kinked" chain. I had the same issue. That's why I'm running a 14 tooth countersprocket (for more room between the chain/swingarm), and keep a close eye out for a kinked chain.

Thank you.
Tried to find one, but couldn't. Picked it up in the store about a year ago. It looks like a dead-ringer knockoff for the MP one pictured above.

Thanks for looking. I almost bought the Motion Pro, but was too cheap. Figured I could do it with a straight-edge. But for $5 I'd be all over one.

Motorcycle Carrier Rack?

Hi....all, does anyone here use one of those Motorcycle Carrier/Racks that go on the back of truck/SUV. Fits into the Hitch Receiver. Usually for a single bike. How do they hold up. Would they be ok for XL-7 Suzuki (smaller suv)? I saw a picture of one in this "mega thread" on someone's SUV. Thanks....hich
