    I hit the spanner with a hammer and unscrewed the magnet bolt . (not the first time to do it on my bike ...)
    Remove the magnet, with the rear wheel axis.
    Question - Is it possible to replace the chain, if I do not remove the cylinder?

    Question; Has anyone mounted a Acerbis 4.5 Gal. R-model tank on a C-model?. From what I've read the C seat will not fit, and that is all I know at this point.

    Cheers,
    Tom.

    Kind off. I made an "R" street legal by swapping a "C" frame in. There are two bosses on both sides of the frame on the upper member, towards the front. They need to be ground off. Also, the "R" tank has a mounting point right behind the headstock. The "C" model may not have that bracket.
    In order to make the "R" seat work on the "C" frame, a few brackets need to be welded on.

    Do you have a R tank, if not what color do you want?

    In europe is see from time to time C tanks for sale.
    If you want i can keep the watch. And the C tank is bigger then R tank.

    PM me what you want to spend on a c tank. And shipping costs

    I "thought" that the C seat may not work with the R tank?. FYI...I can mod the C seat (front mount) with no worries.

    Cheers,
    Tom.

    I have no idea if the "C" seat can be made to work (I suspect that it's a lot of hassle, and it may be easier to get an "R" seat). I had all "R" goodies.

    Here's something for the old KLX650.

    I was looking for silicone radiator hoses for my 95 KLX650R. Gave Advanced
    Performance Accessories a call to see if there was any chance in hell I could get a set of Moto Hoses for the bike. He doesn't have a set in his catalog but he's willing to start production. He mentioned he will pick up a set of factory hoses to get the ball rolling but he needs a minimum of 3 pre orders to start production.

    He's done this for KLR's already. Here's a link to his vendor thread on ADV...
    http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=902489

    Advanced Performance Accessories is a small US company in NC, just outside Charlotte. If there are any riders in the Charlotte area or in North Carolina that are interested in a set of silicone hoses it would be very helpful if he had a bike to do test fitting.

    Website... www.motohose.com

    You can contact him via email at...
    sales@advancedperformanceaccessories.com

    Phone... 704-340-7958

    I don't know about everyone else but the hoses on my bike are getting tired. Used ones from fleabay aren't much better. Seems like a great opportunity to upgrade the bike and add some color.

    I might be interested, but I'll have to dig into the KLX I picked up a bit more and figure out what the status of it is.

    No black available? My KLX already has more than enough color.

    Hi All, Long time lurker, first time poster :D

    I'm keen on the hoses, i've emailed Steven about them and just to confirm what colours he will make them in.

    Yeah... he doesn't do black hoses. I guess it's already available from the factory. I really liked the silicone hoses on my ZX10. Look forward to getting a set for the KLX650, don't care if they only come in hot pink. I like the contrast they add to the engine.

    Hi Guys,

    Its Steve from Moto Hose.

    Like we did on the KLR650 ... We could make the run in Red, Blue and Green.

    Hi Steve,
    I am based in Myrtle Beach, SC and could bring in my '94 KLX 650R if that would help.
    Unfortunately I am in Djibouti North Africa and will only be home at the beginning of September.
    If you have no other bike in by then, please feel free to send me a PM and let me know.

    Rod.

    Your timing might be perfect. He said the process takes a couple months.

    I have a complete rear wheel. A front hub with a 320mm rotor and a set of forks tuned at Penske's Custom Axis shop with new springs for a 200lbs rider. Also has the caliper adapter for the 320mm rotor.
