Yes, its going to be tight, me thinks!
they may well be better now but we had very poor life from them when they were a new thing. i dont think the alloy was right or the hardening correct. they were made in eastern Europe as I recall. I cant remember the name of the Illinois company that started representing them but I do remember they had a suburban area Husky dealer for years and i purchased from them in the 70s. we sold supersprox to Ducati customers and I ran them on my own street bikes. The German sprocket manufacturer I have used and sold is Ejot if i spell that correctly... they and AFAM make some of the finest sprockets I know of.
If you are willing to run a 520 sprocket the Husqvarna Te 610 and others from the 2006,2007 vintage will fit the DR650 hub
Lol saw this on Facebook
I went with the husky, because i like the colors better
Had a nice rumble through the hills. 202 miles in just under 6 hours with almost no traffic and curves that wouldn't end. What a workout!
First stop Burning Springs exhibit again:
Imagine 5-6 hours of roads like this with only about 30 minutes of that time with another vehicle in sight...Just go whatever speed you like fast or slow.
Rt 47 East of Smithville. A nice rest stop at a church and one wild curve.
There's a big lake with some awesome cliffs in Smithville isn't there ? Smithville Lake maybe ? Two years ago for July 4th we stayed at Buckhorn Lake in KY. that was pretty nice..
We were on the Harley's and spent 8 days riding that area. Stayed mostly in the Appalachian Mtns.
You are probably thinking about Summersville Lake. It is very clear with rocky cliffs in many places around it. They drain it every year which turns the Gauley River into a Class 5 kayak river.
YES !!!! That's it
They flooded the town to build that lake IIRC
The boat ramp or road near the marina just keeps going down to the bottom of the lake. I remember a Wiley's jeep was at the bottom 30 years ago.
All depends on the front tire used
This hedge helps.
The bugs weren't bad, as I think we're in between waves! Earlier this summer, they were really bad. They had fertile breeding grounds, due to the excess standing water from all the snow melt.
Thanks for the final gearing info! If Nova ever gets the wide ratio tranny in production, that will be this winters project, so I'll probably finish out the year with the 14/43. As the WR tranny will require more experimenting! I'd need a 112 link chain to gear any lower now, as the 110, is about at it's limit.
Great photo's as usual, and man that Guzzi is just a beautiful motorcycle! Bet it's a blast to ride.
Thx! It is perfect for these roads. You are in the meat of the torque curve. Pick any gear 3-4-5 and it will be fine. I love coming out of a curve shifting up to 4th, the Agostini's singing and then thinking shift to 5th and ease into it or just let the rumble build as the engine brakes and you hammer it on the exit. Your not really going that fast 40-60mph, but the feel and sound is just amazing.
Your pics are of truly majestic places. We are pretty lucky to live where we do!
This beer better?
Taking the DR out tomorrow on some roads nearby I haven't traveled. I have one way point named "Is there a road here".
I should get to one of the few covered bridges left in the county.
Fubared my chain last weekend. The sprockets aren’t too bad and I haven’t ridden it enough off-road to decide if I want to change the gearing one way or the other.
Any suggestions for an “economical” 525x110 chain that ain’t total shit? If I can get 3-5k miles out of it that would be cool, then I’ll do the gearing/sprockets and a good chain at the same time.
You live too close to the coast. I had to buy a jumper in Broken Heel, +3º mid August.
