The Mitas E09 and E07 130/80s are OK too.
What we are talking about re sprocket tooth count...a chain has an inner and outer link,in this example it is clear the inner was in contact with the same teeth constantly!
I WISH it came in a 17.
4000 - 4500km is all I can get out of a 606 rear.
The E07 lasted a lot long but was only good for the first half of its life offroad. After that, the centre strip would make it break loose very easily.
You are 500-1000kms ahead of most blokes
Meaning you guys get more or less km?
Usually gone at abour 3500 kms for me
Then again... I do have my speedo / odo fail regularly. Maybe I am over estimating what i get.
Only ever had a D606 in the same size as yours on the 18 inch. With a 112 links 15/46 combo, here's my gap between the swingarm with a brand new one (and brand new chain and sprockets). Never rubs anywhere except on the stock tool tube plastic guard on compression.
Yep, mines similar..not much room in there!!
Just an update on my Trailtech Vapour issue (Moisture/Condensation in screen).
I heard back from Adv Bike Aus this morning, they contacted Trailtech who have advised they are going to send me a replacement unit direct.
Can’t complain about that!
Nice - good to see they back them up. Might have to have a whine about mine except I don't have a photo of it in that condition.
edit...just looked up my receipt and have had it over a year now so out of warranty. Ah, well-suck it up.
Not unexpected, I have heard good things about TT's backup in such situations in the past.
Farkles.... just got round to tallying up about $3,000 to date. Maybe a screen, Barrett rack and luggage kit of some sort should see me done; Oh fark! maybe the Nova box and big bore kit too??? Meh...
Needless to say it is coming together nicely. Best $ spent so far was on the FFRC suspension, transformed it. (ok, the replacement seat = 1st)
Results of a bit of shed time on the week end.
1) Tuck in gauge and switch holder fabricated; fitted grip heater Heat demon switch, & light bar isolate/off switch (it still dips on/off STD switch)
2) Trail tech fan fitted after re-doing plugs to fit the gauge in the dash: I was a bit disappointed that the kit did not come with enough goodies to get the control unit remote mounted (probably sold as kit to add to the kit???FFS).. had to buy plugs and change them with extra wire. It was a squeeze and trimmed a bit off the fan housing to allow for the movement of the radiator on mounts during "naps" on the trails..
3) Brackets fabricated for Aurora 50W Light bar, fitted and wired up via relay. Yet to try on road but over powers the JNS LED head light output (a lot)
4) SAE lead to main fused block, for Mini moto air pump/battery maintenance
Will be interesting to see what the temps on the gauge get to.
The grip heaters will get put off from fitting for a while. Do you need 2 throttle tube side grips to fit these? Looks like you might stuff them trying to get the STD LH grip over them ?? suggestions? experiences gents??
Not normally, but can be grip dependent to an extent. Softer grips will grow enough. I use brake cleaner as a lube/part solvent, then 5 double wraps of stainless tie wire.
I'm keen to hear how the fan works out, I still might swap my thermostat for a fan.
A fan question? Just putting a Safari 30l tank on and can see the oil cooler airflow is a bit restricted, has anyone noticed if the oil temps have increased in slow hard going? Might it be beneficial to fit one? DR is standard bore with Staintune, airbox and BST40 mods.
Nice to know; thanks. I'll have a fool around and get some fan on/off temps as well as air scoop off for giggles on a slow weekend. I'll collate and post for all.
Probably (based on my faulty logic) would have to get hotter. My 20L restricts air movement compared to the stock tank; I put the air scoop on the side of the oil cooler to help out the air flow. I get a hit of hot air as I start moving since fitting. (PM me & I'll post you one to try).
The fan when it kicks in moves a lot of air! I was impressed. I think it was necessary for me, to fit one, as I commute in city traffic and the oil change after a hot week (40C+) suggested I may have "overheated" the oil, based on the metal "dust" in it not usually seen.
Highest oil temp I've seen is 186 degC.
I have already fitted an airscoop to the oil cooler which would also act as a bit of a heat sink too! Interesting point about the hit of hot air when you move off. I haven't ridden with the Safari on yet, only the Acerbis 20litre.
When you change your oil after a hot one is it burnt looking (dark)? Do you run full synthetic or semi oil?
I am running Penrite 4L MC-4 10W40 100% Pao Ester 4 Stroke Oil, seems ok.
Measured where? Curious minds...
