Seat concepts

I have the same bike, an 09 and just installed the seat concepts kit,
Much more comfortable and easy install, also went with them for my TE511,
Made it comfortable for a much greater period of time.

New chain time. I'd check sprockets also. Looks like some frozen/stuck
Rollers. What does it look like rolling it slow?

Who needs suspension

Or tires, steering head bearings, brakes, use rope for your chain.
It's just your life, don't sweat it.

You are right. The transmission has a very tight ratio, barely tolerable
for some on the road. It shines on single track, and enduro type stuff,
Definitely not for everyone, suits me great. I...

Ever ridden one

Yep. Owned one, and still swap off with my club friends.
No comparison, horsepower, handling, price. It may last longer,
But the older ones at the club seem to have same wear issues as all
