I did a 13/43 and it fit fine but took of the 43 just felt to steep for the street for right now, maybe once I break in the motor a bit more I will put it back on. My buddy runs the 13/43 combo and his doesn't feel nearly as corked up or high revving as mine does but he has about 1200miles on his compared to my 250miles.

You might be able to squeeze a 43 on there. 45 will NOT fit. If you want to go lower, you'll need wither a 12t front or a longer chain.

As noted above, 12/42 is AWESOME in the dirt. However, it runs out of steam real quick on pavement, and forget about getting on the freeway. 12/42 also matches your stock chain length and axle position.

Mini road trip

Took the bike over to Block Island today, 38 miles to get to the ferry. On the island, I did 49, just poking around. Two years ago, I took a big bike over, and couldn't explore so much, all the dirt roads dead end, and turning around isn't so much fun on dirt, with a bike that weighs twice what the LRP does. It's quaint, no gas stations over there, and the highest speed limit is 25 mph. Stopped for a lobster salad samich, and could observe the unloading of one of the ferries, just like that scene from Jaws, crazy stuff, for sure. Not cheap, $67 for the bike, and me, round trip, but no need to reserve a spot. With a car, you have to book well in advance, both ways. About an hour on the ferry. Lots of out of state plates on cars, and some new homes being built, someone's got $. Saw a DRZ supermoto parked inside an area of a little restaurant outside eating area, so they worked there, but with a Florida plate. Going on the slab to get there, not so much fun. Painted rock got changed, after my 1st pass, Happy 50th, somebody. http://quahog.org/attractions/index.php?id=182

Itchin' to start the mods. What skid plate would you recommend? Right now I'm leaning towards the one from Flatland Racing.

I have the Emperor Racing skidplate. I little more expensive than most of the others, but definitely a quality piece. Very easy to install, too.

I have the Flatland skidplate. It doesn't protect the water line on the right side as well as I'd like (that is to say, at all) and, from RockRacing's pic, neither does the Emperor. The Richochet comes up higher to protect the line better. You can see it in this post here on Lost's LRP.

But do get the Flatland Radiator guard!

cheers

I had an SDR, still on the Yahoo forum, that's how I found it. Sophisticated electronics (like I think Evenrude?) to clean up the act. Low center of gravity, exhaust in the rear, like Cannondale. Hard to beat a 2 smoke for low weight, and a power stroke each revolution...
