  1. I run 16 front 44 rear and the chain is 108 links Works great for my needs at 1700m above sea level - power wheelies in 1st no problem. DO you allready have a speedohealer?
  2. you checked for spark?
  3. as long as he doesn't pull a Clinton and debate the meaning of the word "is"
  4. heh... I'm a Virgo, and we Vorgoans don't believe in that horoscope bullshit. Almost as bad as religion.
  5. One of the mods should change his title to "board Rambo"
  6. You can remove the front lens of the headlamp, fit the projctor units in the sockets for the H7 bulbs, and reseal. There are a couple of Youtube tutorials on this process and they seem to be effective (altho the ones I watched were for HID projectors I doubt there is any functional difference in the process) and you use the normal lamp adjustment wheels to direct the beams where you need them.
  7. Or a hose clamp might be loose enough that a tiny weep gets past when cold but swells up enough to seal when hot. Stranger shit happens...
  8. Look at the caliper slider pins sometime. Those get gunk ed up and that causes the caliper to stick, preventing it from keeping the disk central and balanced between the pads
  9. My '97 pops up on an energetic gearchange 1st to 2nd, and will come up with a tug on the bars. And thats at 1700m above sea level. I reckon that a trip to the coast is warranted now
  10. my '97 has been well used, the plastics have been replaced twice due to my abundant lack of riding talent, and with 230.000 km its still on the original clutch. Given that all maintenance has been done by my fumbly fingers over the last 200.000km plus, I would say that age is NOT an issue. The XX is reliable as a hammer
  11. I have about 230k km on my '97 original clutch. If you're getting pulsing thru the lever it would tend to point to a warped steel plate or 2 - might need to get that validated before a reassembly. If the clutch isn't slipping you could consider Pazzo or other aftermarket levers which could change the feel completely by moving the base adjustment value closer to the bar.

  13. Look at the K1300 - the K1200 had known weaknesses in the geartrain. A guy I know lunched a K1200 gearbox in the first week of owning it and they gave him a new bike because it was a known design flaw
  14. Stop dicking around and do the R1 RR mod - mine's been bulletproof.
