They can take a beating too..my right side case has been up close and personal with the ground a few times now. First time was a good lesson learned, buy an extra mounting lock and carry it under the seat. It sucks to break one 500 miles from home with all your camping gear loaded. It is the sacrificial link, better to bust that than the rack or subframe.

The two things I don't like are no top loading and stickers don't stick too well without some hairdryer prep.

It might just be because the chain is so sparkly bright (mine never is), but in that picture your chain looks a bit too slack. Might want to double check the tension adjustment.

Yep. That was just a picture to capture both sprockets and the chain before final adjust and reinstalation of front cover and clutch slave.

Good eye!!

'nuff said!

They say a picture is worth 1000 words, this one might be worth a few more.
