yes. The bike was only in Australia under a racing exemption so technically it could not be registered or sold.

So, does anyone know of a source for a 2.5 rimlock?

I spun my valve stem off last week. I found out it's not fun to change a tube when it's only 25 degrees F!

Parts unlimited sells them.
your local moto shop should be able to order them.

My motorcycling in the winter is limited to sitting on the bike in my heated garage and making weird noises.

Vermonters....

I did a year in Alaska back in the 80's and swore I'd be living on a beach by now. How I got suckered back up to the northeast is beyond me.

Injector

So after waiting 4 months for my new injector I decided to order one from Munn Racing on Monday.

Long story short, there were two of them on my doorstep today... Guess I should have been a bit more proactive on the situation. Who would have thought my backorder would arrive on the same day?

Anyway, I've got an extra. This is the upgraded injector kit with the inline filter. I'll make you a good deal on it.

Edited. Sold.

Fuel Filter interval

Is the fuel filter to be changed at 10,000 miles? Couldn't find it, or maybe I overlooked it.
Thanks -

thanks i've seen those, but if i'm going to buy two for the rear it'll be quite expensive, if they exclude those swank looking caps it'll bring the price down quite a bit. 30 for two in the UK, as i've read in the rimlock thread (which is pretty useless) that'll help balance the rear, any truth in that?

you recommend 2.15, it's the obvious choice on a 690 rear i guess?


Be careful that you don't get 2.15" rim locks, the 690 uses a 2.5" rear rim. ....... Got it thanks

Bluhduh Chain Tension

as mentioned numerous times, now that the mega thread is long forgotten and buried, it has become a pain in the but to find info. can anybody please give me some advise on setting the chain tension, i know the method but;

1) i need the correct measurement and from where to where, is it from chain to chain guard attached underneath the swing arm?
2) whilst sitting on the bike and upright, or not?


the manual isn't very descriptive in measurements. thanks in advance

Bike leaning on side stand. No rider seated. Neutral selected. 30mm from the chain guard (towards rear), push upwards. Gap between chain and swingarm should be 5mm.

There should be a sticker on the underside of the seat with an image and description of the chain adjustment.
