Pros: power, high speed handling, extended range, RID is light years better, Nice accessories from PO

Cons: 11 had more cockpit room, Works suspension on the 11 is a gazillion time better than the OEM on the 12 (even though 12 was rebuilt just before purchase), Fastway pegs from 11 don't fit, Sargent seat makes my tailbone numb (Corbin from 11 doesn't fit), Years of getting the 11 "just right"" - now have to start over!

Got 7 weeks to futz with it before I launch to Yellowknife... plenty o' time.
Non-servo

Also still owe you lens, etc!

thanks

This place has been good to me in the past: http://local.ksl.com/listings/abrasi...blasting/51436 ( I think Ken shops there. )

Throw a wanted ad on KSL for a motor. You may find somebody that just want it hauled off. I have 1928 Ford Inline 4 complete with authentic drunk potato farmer bullet holes through the block I might let go for the right person...

Good, someone has to represent. My riding days may be numbered until I can finish
with helping the kid's remodel. We'll see.

Thank for the clarification! I'll have to swing by and snag those lenses one of these nights.

expected mileage?

How many miles should I get out of my V-Strom chain? I've got 17,000 on there now and it's getting noisy at crawling speeds. The sprockets look fine though.

Don't go by mileage Kev, conditions, type of riding, etc. It's hard to judge by mileage.

Check your roller surfaces for pitting, etc. Check for tight links, missing O-rings, etc. And measure the pin to pin distance.

Here's a good site with better info: http://www.motorcycleanchor.com/moto...mc_chains.html

Replace. That's good mileage out of a factory chain.
