Oh you mean this? Psshh... no big deal. :eek1
Got a lot of things to do to the ol' Serow before it's ready for another beating.
Here's a little action footage I managed to get...

Yeah, That's pretty bad...:eek1
Geez A~ can't believe those made it through the weekend...:huh
No dirt sport.. I was looking at dirt bikes on Craig's list. Did find couple TT500 Yamaha's .. CR trans, Old Heavy????? What did I find ? a Big Red three wheeler? Clay went picked it up I think same time I was at doc with a tore back muscle. I was happy it was not the spine. Miss all you that did not make it .. Maybe next year .. Oh I will keep my eye on creig's list.

Yeah... probably should have changed that out in 1995.
But it's good to know the factory sprocket lasts over 20 years... I think I will might just purchase stock parts to replace it.
Anyone have a certain brand of non-o-ring chain they swear by?
I would not recommend a Non-o-ring chain. Most enduro racing bikes even come with o-ring chains these days. I got a lot of miles out of the Parts Unlimited o-ring chain and sprockets. They are not the most expensive but seemed to have lasted longer then others I've used.

What year was that thing again? JT sprockets work as well as OEM and alot of the steel fronts and rears run between $20-25 on fleabay. I'd go with an o-ring chain myself. Do a search on 'non o-ring vs. o-ring'. Lot's of good conflicting information there!
For piling on the miles like I do with my KLX, I too have chosen a sealed chain... But for a bike that is used relatively infrequently in mostly dry conditions, I think a standard chain would be a fine choice (and significantly less expensive for the appropriate strength rating for a low-output bike like the Serow). If that's a standard chain just being replaced, I'd use another standard chain for sure. Given decent care it should last a long, long time, it just needs to stay clean, lubed, and adjusted.
I do have a standard D.I.D. waiting to go on my own CRF450X rather than a sealed chain (I've got reasons, but it's probably a semi-permanent installation, eventually it'll get a sealed chain). I can't remember the exact model I bought; it's one of their higher-strength standard chains. It would be overkill for the Serow.
One thing to make sure of before jumping to a sealed chain, is that some bikes just won't accommodate the extra width, and the chain will cut into the case around the countershaft - not good. Some sealed chains are wider than others, so one may fit while another won't. I don't know if the Serow will handle one or not, just something you'll need to check out if you take that path.
One thing I will say, is make sure to get a steel rear sprocket, not aluminum. The aluminum will wear a lot faster than steel, and will exacerbate any chain wear issues you might have.

How about that suspension...

Not funny, looks too much like my crash at the Shindig.
Seems like just the other day I was riding a dirt bike out there all sweaty and dusty
Some people are still out and about though.

So with that blanket of white, is the single track now considered "tough?"
Yikes that's a bunch of snow for the first shot of winter.
makes the rain seem nice.
