wtf?


Did you get ANOTHER one? I remember the red one, but the black one is new to me. (Or I forgot about the info, if told previously)



As always, if you need some parts, let me know. I may have some to spare, or just wont need on my rebuild.

, I was cleaning my chain yesterday and discovered that the master link clip is gone.

Who knows how long I have been riding like that.

is scary isn't it?

Forever, when I put on a new or reinstall a chain with a clip master,
I clean and dry off the clip/outside of that link very good and then smear the entire clip/posts/outer link with either red, orange or blue RTV.

Makes it easy to see and inspect when I clean and lube the chain every week or so...



Had the black one for right at a year in April. Sold the red one and it ended up being unloved...

:(

I am going to have to do something. I am going out of town to work for the week on the bike. Would have sucked if the chain flew off half way through the trip.

curious...did you use a pressure washer? ive heard pressure washers have too much force and can cause damage to seals like that.

Yes but it's not my first rodeo.... I saturate the engine, exhaust, brakes with
a degreaser then wash it off well but not close enough to get water inside the seals. Besides, to reach the countershaft and shift shafts I'd have to
stick the wand up inside the cover....

Found what is leaking on the ride in today.....

shock seal let go on the ride in....



Best part is I don't ride the month of July, I have my son the entire month.
The shock was going to Patrick to be rebuilt then.... guess it's go a bit early... (have to ride the stock, under sprung, under dampened POS shock this month....)
