Thumbs up THANK YOU Jim aka texlurch Yo da MAN!



Thank you for taking the time out of your day to change my front/rear sprocket and chain

After 22,642 miles my chain was dead it had tight spots and too many loose spots ... I had it adjusted all the way back on the swingarm and it was poping and rattling around like a can full of nails I think that I killed this chain a few thousand miles ago but I was trying to get my money's worth out of it not a good idea folks...

Anywho Jim was kind enough to invite me over and show me how to simple a job it was with the right tools ... I now know the tools that I need to do the job myself next time ...

Also thanks Patrick @ Motorcycles Unlimited for the front sprocket... they had it in stock and I picked it up this morning..

Thanks also to ZXALAN for all your advise on the chain and your offer to help

Vertigo aka Tom thanks for your offer to help as well man

dbuck you also offered to help me and reffered me to Jim on the chain press tool thanks man

CarbonJames thanks for your offer to help me change this as well

FLYIN'DUC aka Tim thanks for offering to tighten up my chain for free ... but this chain was dead

The only thing that kept this chain going was me cleaning and lubing it like every 100 miles :/:

Well folks I got a new chain ... looks like I will be able to pose a lil longer

Again many thanks Jim aka texlurch I owe you man

Just goes to show you that there are more than a few nice folks on here that are willing to help you out if you ask

and thanks to Solracer for the site with it I would still be rolling with that jacked up chain :/::/:


Oh and Jim thats a Nice Bandit sir but the mods will never stop huh?
