Got about 4k on a new chain and sprockets. All looks good.

Now, would you change them before setting off on a 10,000 mile trip?

Thanks Ard.

Do you foresee any issues in attaching a filter? In my mind the filter would have its own thin flange and would rest on top of the inner tank flange.

The relay can probably checked with a simple 12v bulb, so don't go buying a new one unless you're sure the old one is shot. I doubt that it is.

No chance.

I'm 5'10 with 31/32" inseam and I tiptoe.

Oh actually, just thought. I've got my rear ride height screw on the bottom of the shock set to max, so that makes it about 15-20mm higher.

Thanks, though it's not really worth it, shipping from the US to UK will be more than the wheel itself especially when you include tax and import duty.
