  1. https://www.microair.net/collections/easystart-soft-starters
  2. I thought they were more "ricer" style, but I like both rice and beans.
  3. Somebody marketed that as a kit at one time... "superbike bars" or some such thing.
  4. Based on the time I've spent chasing issues that weren't, I would simply replace the battery. I have the luxury burden of having several motorcycles, so I almost always have a battery I can swap out to test with. Though right now, batteries are missing, bad, or questionable in 4 out of 5 bikes.
  5. Can you quantify this? I only ask, respectfully, because I don't personally know your knowledge level, and in my experience, it's almost always the battery. If you can replace "fine" with "12.8v at rest after not running/charging it for a day", I'd feel better about going down the rabbit hole. FWIW, my '97 exhibited exactly the same symptoms on a road trip after I had just gone through and tested the system and upgraded the R/R. I messed with it for days in the middle of my vacation because I knew the battery was "fine". Guess what I bought at Autozone that fixed it?
  6. Not really "better" than OEM in most cases, but aftermarket can extend the service life beyond where the factory equipment begins to experience normal out-of-spec/tolerance variation - though in many cases, a performance upgrade is selected at the time of replacement. Some models with factory parts that were oriented more towards economy can be transformed into full-on race machines, though... usually accompanied by increased maintenance and repair costs commensurate with the increased performance level. Performance costs money - how fast do you want to go?
  7. There are custom-machined options as well, probably stupid expensive though. One thing I've noticed is that most of the super light aftermarket wheels use 520 chains to stay with the weight loss regimen.
  8. A friend tells me that several of the aftermarket wheel companies use the same sprocket - Marchesini Type A. Check out Supersprox rst-7090-45 or Sunstar RM-102. The dimensions seem off for what you measured but I don’t know how accurate you got - 76mm center and 100mm bolt circle.
  9. I'm living proof that you never know what the universe has coming your way. Mongo just a pinball in the arcade of life.
  10. Ah. Looks like a Ducati-ish adaptor. That's going to be a fun journey.
  11. JT gives the dimensions of their sprockets in their online catalog, but it can only be searched by application so that makes it *a little* time-consuming. Can you share the application? Or is it too obscure for a search?
  12. While I've gleaned a lot of personal satisfaction from original jugs, there are many advantages to aftermarket. You had to know that was coming, right?
  13. Something Italian.
