Sprocket and guards.

I have a Ironman 46 tooth rear and Devol rad guards shipped to your door for $90 conus. They are all new but the sprocket has a little surface corrosion, very little actually. Anybody need these? Joe

Chain Tensioners on the Swingarm.

My '08 KTM EXCR and 2001 Tiger both run with a lot of slack in the drive chain. My old Husky from the 70's ran a tensioner and it seemed to work great back then. Why isn't it still a good idea?

How far back is the bung? It is likely ok at that distance.

50N Silver Solder has a melting point of 1305F. Your pipe can hit 1500F on a long hard pull. You might want to tig that after all.
