    There’s got to be some sort of trophy for that kind of preparedness. :beer

    After changing my 2007's belt at home in the garage, I always kept the old one as a spare. :nod

    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.

    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. DBA9539D-8F92-41A2-B9CA-3CC3AF264BAF.jpeg

    I’ve been running the 705s for quite a while now, on various bikes. I REALLY like them.

    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) buluxb12x.jpg ... 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

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