I almost bought an ED04 and then I found some T63's from an inmate here. The ED04 looks decent.

I love the MT43's but they are too tall for my tastes on the road. Once I get some 17" SM wheels for the street I will go back to them for off-road.

Yeah, just finishing up the latches, then I am going to remount it and take photos and fill it with tools etc to see how much I can actually fit in there. I will take a bunch of photos and add them.

I have a new chain and sprockets to go on as well. I hope that cures it, but based on your experience maybe not. Sprockets are aligned with the motion pro alignment tool.

Hopefully someone else knows the solution.

Hmm. I wonder if there are any little burrs on the sprocket teeth that the chain gets caught on? I wonder if there is possibly a vibration elsewhere on the bike that is causing the chain to resonate side to side like that?

On my little ride today I watched the chain whenever I could. At 25 mph the drive side of the chain oscillates about .5-1 cycles per second. Both the top and bottom of the chain are oscillating. As far as I can tell, my problem is irrespective to load/rpm. Mine is all speed based.

I think I'm going to throw this up in the Garage to see if anybody else has ideas.

e-12?

Anyone have Wolfman E-12 saddle bags on their wr? I'm wondering if they fit well and if you can mount them far enough back that they won't prevent you from shifting your weight all the way back.

I have a set of E-12s on order, should have arrived yesterday, but they didn't. I'll post pics as soon as I get them.

I thought I might mention a few set-up items on my R2. I purchased the factory rear rack and replaced the metal deck with a 3/4 plywood piece. It's great because its easy to make it oversize to suit your needs, like a long tail to support a sleeping bag /tent etc.

I put a crossbar with footpegs attached to the skid plate mount holes. I saw this on a KLR and just had to have it. Nice when you hit the Hwy to head home.

I have a Madstad windshield on mine which I could not live without especially with an arthritic neck. It helps in the rain as well. For bush riding I flip it upside down and visibility is good. Before installing the windshield in needed to use my helmet visor but now I never use it. If I do go for an all off-road ride I do take it off. Sorry I can't post pics yet not sure how many posts I need for that.

Did a fantastic ride yesterday 460 km didn't get rain till the homestretch.

RE: Chain flailing from side to side. The first thing I'd check is wheel alignment -- make sure by measuring from the center of the axle to the center of the swing arm pivot on both sides -- don't rely on adjuster markings.

Could the rear sprocket be warped/bent?

you should be able to post pics, you just need to:

create an account with username & password on a site like photobucket
upload your photo there
click on the direct link to copy the html code from your photobucket album
create/reply to a message on here
paste your html link in your message

the pic should appear. we used to be able to just upload direct from your pc to this site but i think storage was becoming an issue, not too hard once you get the account set up tho.

Try using the "[IMG]" "link" "[/IMG]" way. No attachment necessary. I've never had a problem with "[IMG]" tags. Just remember to remove the quotes.
