    Very pleased with the purchase .....

    Had a great ride down, and snapped these off after I got home from work today.

    FYI you'll notice that the frame and engine numbers are different. This is apparently to help confuse a thief. Change one or the other and you'll need the original documentation to know what numbers to stamp in.

    Nice looking bike, G!

    A buddy of mine out here has the same '00, with the silver cases - I like it! I always thought someone had put the cases on after...but that must be the way they came? Black bike/silver cases?

    What can does it have on it? D&D? How's it sound?

    either your chain is adjusted way to freakin tight or you are due for a new chain and sprocket set ...........you have zero adjustment left in the chainset by the looks of the eccentric adjusters .

    nice looking tigger though ..........in the fast color :D

    Thanks! :beer


    That's good to know ..... :nod

    Hey Mudhen .....

    Ironically, with mine, the cases did come after. The P.O. bought them off e-bay after he already had the bike. Me, personally, I don't mind the silver bags, and they will completely suffice until I by mounts for my Gobis.

    The can is an EVO Quill exhaust ..... and it sounds a little dirty ..... :evil


    Thanks again! :beer

    Interestingly enough, I checked the chain out, and it's not tight. I mean, there's a good deal of play in it. Rear sprocket looks in pretty good shape .... which doesn't mean a new sprocket isn't in order sometime soon, but yeah .... the chain is definitely not overly tight.

    Oh .... the chain is from last year and has about 2500 to 3000 miles on it

    Any other thoughts as to the zero adjustment on the adjusters ????

    Wrong size chain with too many links? Sprockets not the stock size? On my 16/53 sprocket set I'm at the tipover point, too...the other way, though, I guess.

    could quite possibly be sprocket size then
    should have a 46 tooth sprocket IIRC with 114 link chain
    if someone went with a 43 tooth then you might end up like the pic with no adjustment or count the links in the chain could be it was replaced with one that was 120 link and never cut to size

    I would have to venture that, that is the ticket. Either a much smaller sprocket and / or too many links on the chain.

    I'll see if I can make out how many teeth the rear sprocket has later today ....

    First, though, it's off to the DMV in about 90 minutes for the physical VIN inspection. :nod

    Mustang, Mudhen .......

    Check it. The rear sprocket is a 48t ...........

    Now I'm think more to that there are additional links in the chain.

    Mustang, IIRC, you said the "stock" chain length is 114 links, correct?

    G-Funk: I have a '99; the '99 and '00 are the same. Stock sprockets are 18t front, and 48t rear. Chain length should be 116 links unless larger sprockets were installed.
