I broke two of the primary drive chains after very little riding. Probably a total of about a month or so each. I have had a regina with ironman sprockets on for a long time and it seems to be holding up much better.

I wouldn't put a primary drive on my bike anymore. They just don't seem strong enough for a single without a cush drive on street tires.

The sprockets are fine though.

Could you get a bd unit and reprint a gauge face in kph? If you can open the gauge that should be easy enough.

You ride it hard enough!

Just sayin!

front rotor upgrade

Hi ya fellas,
Im looking into the 280mm front brake rotor kit for the xr605r, does anyone currently have one, did you really notice the added braking power off road?

I am having real trouble tracking down a complete kit with the caliper extender, does anyone know where to find them?
any help would be much appreciated

The braided hose caused a bigger improvement than the larger diameter rotor IMHO

Ohhhh snap, you got me there man Hey maybe we can save some gas money and carpool to the kawasaki/hoveround dealership for both of our next bikes, by the looks of what you can handle, since you like dishing out the wise-assery

BTW, besides riding for over thirty years now and in the last fifteen I haven't owned anything but 600+ Honda plated dual sports, looks like you are about on the mark as you usually are.
