This happened on a recent trip through NM/AZ. Morning of day 2, in the hotel parking lot.
Good thing I carry a spare belt!
There’s got to be some sort of trophy for that kind of preparedness.
Looks like Shinko 705s.
After changing my 2007's belt at home in the garage, I always kept the old one as a spare.
I do the same, don't wanna be out there without a replacement.
I carried a spare and when I did a belt change I used the tools I carried on the bike to be sure I had everything I needed.
Keeping the old belt as a spare ensures that it’s easier to slip on than a new belt, you already know how to do it roadside, and the journey continues.
We did 2000 miles after the break, nary a hiccup.
I did a chain conversion for that very reason....
Shinko 705’s currently
Picked up a set and they are doing the trick. Pic is from today. Nice 113 mile loop. Route is in the GPS section for the west if you are ever in Shasta-Trinity area of Far Northern California.
I’ve been running the 705s for quite a while now, on various bikes. I REALLY like them.
Wife and I did a trip to Baja in March. We're heading back in 2 weeks, I cant wait!
Hauling from Idaho to Vegas. Would rather ride but that wasn't happening.
That’s pure rock-n-roll right there.
Good on both of you!
I'm hoping to make some improvement to front suspension... -And 21" front wheel (now 19" sporster wheel)
... Wonder which usd forks would fit to ulys 54mm/56mm triples. I believe some wp forks have. But which?
The Ulysses has a very short wheelbase and even the stock 17" wheel put the rubber of the front tire really close to the chin fairing during fork compression so I think that you are going to have to make some geometry changes to get a larger front to fit? Check it out a little before you go down this path as I think it will quickly get complicated and turn out to more than just a fork swap. Good luck.
I have made some measuring, so with forks with lower foot which has axle front of tube should work with 21". I may throw chin fairing away.. I don't mind giving this a try.
I'm doing swingarm mods too
haha Finnish guys are not looking for easy ways.))
man, I like your helmet on the avatar - what is it?

Bell MX9 Adventure helmet.
From last weekends ride around Lawrence County, Indiana. Front isolator finally failed so that’ll be replaced next week!
