The 15 counter is a little hard on the chain and I am seeing some wear on my upper guide. I think the EXP set up proper with a 16-45 would be the all around set up. Currently I have mine set so it just barely creeps with the MED set up. I use my clutch still at stops and starts and count on the EXP to help out with the technical stuff. Head out for a 5 day test Thursday
Having seen pictures from some of your earlier rides - look forward to your thoughts after your 5 day ride!
