Re: Chain Adjustment Help Smooth Power Delivery

Yeah... Clattering is a minor annoyance that goes away more the faster you go - drown the noise out with exhaust - bearings I can imagine are both expensive and a bitch to replace, along with possibly warped parts. Have an excellent Easter... Im going to go sleep .. a little deprived and have to go ...

Re: Chain Adjustment Help Smooth Power Delivery

I've found it easier to find something in the garage that is 7mm thick (small peice of wood/flat bar/nut etc) to check the measurement rather than trying to hold the chain up with finger pressure while fiddling around with a tape measure. Thanks SBD yeah I second that, it makes life soooo much easi...

Re: Soft32/Dat101

Well, I'm kind of glad I found this when I did (in warranty period) as it turned out I had a faulty stator, Which would have been a real issue if I wanted to do a rather longer interstate trip again - I would have been filled with murderous rage if I were stuck between Melbourne and Sydney, or worse...

Re: Disappearing Engine Oil

I has an issue with dropping oil level, i think its normal to loose some during bedding in, but with mine they hadn't fitted a bolt correctly and there was a minor leak on the front cylinder... they tightened it up and all good now. keep your engine sparkling clean, and it becomes easy spotting issu...

Re: Crash BARS or Crash BUNGS

Thanks for sharing,
I love that your ego placed No. 1 (that was my most damaged item on my first off)

The tank damage is what surprised me, and the bending of the guard itself.

Hope everything is alright with the bike now.

Re: Soft32/Dat101

Damnit, I ran into the same problem today --- 100km from home on top of a hill. Luckily I got it jump started, thanks to an obliging 4WD driver. I am hoping its just a damaged battery, but is most likely going to be an issue with the regulator or strator (according to my more knowledgeable spanner j...

Re: Chain Adjustment Help Smooth Power Delivery

well the 7mm slack between the top of the chain link and the swing arm, at the point where the bolt that attaches the chain guard to the swing arm however the underside of it. if you have a center stand or track stands this is a lot easier, as you can elevate the rear tire rock it back and forth so ...

Re: Crash BARS or Crash BUNGS

Nice move, A while ago I had some prick tip my bike over in the street (in front of my house (because she was having a fight with her BF)) anywho, if it wasn't for the bars they would have scratched up or possibly damaged the tank, which are not a cheap replacement and are almost an impossible repai...

Re: Oil filter removal??

well they sell a kit for the LC8, as you are supposed to replace all of the O-rings/gaskets at the same time... but never having to this myself yet, I'm not sure exactly how much this holds true. The kit contains the main filter, 2 screens - one flat and one cylindrical, and a selection of O-rings a...
