Hello Steve

Great thread!
I have a question:
You lube the bolts which go into aluminium.
Donīt you reach the right torque way later than with dry bolts?
Isnīt the danger of stripping the thread much higher?
Regards
Olli

I oil the cylinder and head bolts per the factory manual.

All of the other bolts get oiled as well but I don't use a torque wrench. I have a calibrated WRIST.

Steve,

The thing you have to remember is that a lot of us haven't turned wrenches for 30 years like you so our wrist, elbows, whatever don't know when enough is enough. We actually have to use a torque wrench and chart. You're lucky, your experience saves you some steps.

I am well aware that a lot of folks don't have the experience truning wrenches that I do. I started spinning tools when I was nine years old and the coaster brake on my Schwinn Typhoon took a crap. Dad was to busy to assist and it was up to me to fix it. It took multiple reassemblies to get it back the way it was supposed to be as when I opened it up it spilled it's guts all over the floor. A lesson learned right there.

I get a kick out of reading how some guy takes his 3/8" torque wrench to tighten a 6mm bolt to 8lbs and wonders why it either stripped or pulled all of the threads out. It's a matter of FEEL which can only be developed by doing something over and over and over again.

I get where your coming from. It's just me trying to make a funny with the Calibrated Wrist bit.

Guess I'm a little jealous too, my bad. I'd still let you work on any of my bikes or vehicles and not worry one bit.

I can relate..I was about that same age,I got tired of waiting for my bike/toys to get fixed by Dad and so I grabbed up some tools, fixed my stuff and have been turning wrenches ever since.
I thought I was going to get in trouble when he found out I was using his tools, but all he had to say about it was "be sure you put the tools back where you found them"

My dad said it too and I did. On the other hand... my brother didn't and I always seemed to be walking through the garage when Dad discovered his stuff scattered around or missing and boy did I hear about it!

Need some advice from you XR650L experts...am I screwed?

Countershaft sprocket...easy to replace...




Countershaft with F'ed up splines...remotely servicable or does it definitely need replaced? If so...anyone have some tips as I'm sure the entire engine needs tore down to access it.



What gets me is the bike has 16,500 miles on it...put about 8000 of those on the bike in the past 12 months. I pulled the countershaft sprocket about 1500 miles ago and there was nominal wear so I decided to wait to replace it until the next oil change (already have the new one). Fast forward to today...yeah that's a lot of wear in 1500 miles. Not sure how that happened...chain is always properly adjusted and lubed so there's not a lot of slop. Suggestions?
