Hmmmmm....

You should be able to verify part numbers to make sure chain and sprockets are all 525 as they should be. I recently replaced my sprockets and chain with all OEM 525 stuff and the OEM DSD chain came heavily lubed but don't know anything about a Regina chain, never heard of them. Sounds like lubing it would be a cheap fix to try. But I would double check the part numbers.

It sounds like the chain is worn out with intermittent clicking from the chain area under load at slow speed like the chain not meshing properly.

So, what should I be looking for? How do I tell what size chain I have? I had Larry mount them during a rear tire change. Y'all think I have a mixed bag of 520 and 525 chain/sprockets or should I be looking for something else?

Well, I spent the rainy afternoon tearing the rear wheel off for the third time. I found the cush pads in good shape, the sprocket bearing in good shape, the main bearings in good shape. Next I pulled off the front sprocket cover and found everything there normal and clean. The sprockets are not hooked or even worn. I verified (per Elvis' suggestion) that I had all 525 stuff and I do.

So, I soaked my 1 month old chain in kerosene for about 30 minutes and dried it with one of my wifes good kitchen towels..(she doesn't know yet) and then put it back on the bike and lubed the shit out of it!

The result? click.......click.....click...wtf? I am now thinking clutch basket?

Don't you just hate crap like that

I enjoy working on stuff ocassionally but when I just can't find what the hell is causing a problem I just want to hand my wallet to tech and say fix it already.

Not to mention I just don't have the time for it. I can barely make time to ride anymore.

I got home a couple hours ago.
I got the front end back on the XTique.
The collar/shim I had the machine shop make worked perfectly.

Its setting level again even if the kick stand is 4"s to short now.

It literally sets like this one now.

I think its got more ground clearance than my ATK LQ's. 12 to 14" ground clearance. I've got a family reunion tomorrow Maybe after that I can get things lined out and the front brake bled and the headlight and turn signals on it, and give it the first test ride with a few jumps to see how it feels.

Is it next weekend? I might make it assuming I have the XTique back together. To early to forecast next week yet.
I havn't paid my fee either. If I make an appearance it will be for one day. Then find me some place secluded in the NF to camp for a night maybe.

The top bag is to big for a bike tank...
It would great for a small saddle bag.

I just opened the box and inspected them.

2 BK's and a Eurocopter AS-350 B-2 (A.K.A the A-star). The A-star is the one hovering. It is exactly the same as the one I will fly. [IMG][/IMG]

That is it, hope you enjoyed.
