Speaking of time serts. Both of my chain adjusters were rusted and ruined from the previous owner, so I used time certs. Now its steel on steel (with plenty of grease + anti-sieze so way less of a chance of rust than aluminium and steel.

So far they are holding up great and are overall much better than the other methods to repair the adjusters.

I dont understand why Honda and other companies have the chain adjusters designed so poorly. They know these bikes are going to be slogged through water and mud. The bolts will rust.
