I have over 18K on my chain and I have 1 more "tighten" left in it before replacement...

Man, I'm going to have to hive the bee for about a month to get everything done...chain and sprockets, SS brake lines, fork oil flush and change...and it's time for new plugs and air cleaner...and a valve adjustment is just around the corner...


Anyone got a spare thousand laying around so I can get it all done???

18K, thats good. O ring, X ring? what brand? Mine last a good while on the SV (did x-ring) and thats in the rain and dust, its all about mantainence. I see some guys lasting all of 3-4000 miles just because they dont take care of it.

I'm pushing 7k on my 520 DiD Gold X ring. That's hard miles with numerous wheelies and all.
