Seriously though,where would you have room to put it,,put it under the fender and it`ll be a projectile on the first decent bump after the tire grabs it.........

Put it under the right side plastic......no room there.....

There is unlikely enough heat from the exhaust to heat anything in a REASONABLE amount of time.........

My advise...eat lunch before you leave the house,by samiches enroute to whereever you are going.......or get a backback and stuff it full..

Reminds me of how we used to heat up our chow in the C-Rat days. I ate a lot of grub out of a can heated up on an exhaust manifold.

I have $800.00 in my complete XRL front end. RSW anodized triples were close to $400.00, forks, CRF-X front wheel, CRF caliper and mount although the XRL caliper is the same but the mount only works on the '03 and back forks, CRF-X axle.

The CRF forks on my XR600 were close to $400.00. Free/buddies R wheel and triples, Emig conversion stem.

I have since bought forks from $150.00 to $300.00 for valved '08's.

I just talked with a guy that is selling a 2011 CRF250r complete front end with a spare wheel. He wants $600.00 which is not a bad deal really.

The verdict: EK 520, SR-05. 110 links. What's next?

That drive chain is the correct length for your 14T/48T sprocket combination. If necessary, set the snail adjusters to get more slack in your drive chain. Where are the snail adjusters set now?

That sounds about right to me. How much slack do you have in the drive chain?

Purpledrake, how well does the CSS fit? is there any play, (or "wobble" to use the correct tehnical term) evident now?

BTW, feel free to stop by on your way up island if you come through Vic.
Hey, DC

The CSS fits very snuggly, and does not wobble at all. I also installed a new retainer, and everything seems to fit tightly. I rode the bike for ~50 miles, and removed the new CSS to check. There is a definite new "edge" (slight indentations into the splines) from where the CSS is now impacting the counter shaft. I hope to make it over to SuperSamurai's place in the near future and perform some dark magic on it to prevent future catastrophe.

Thanks for the kind note. Yes, we have to pass through Victoria on the way up the inland coast, and will look you up. She is such a beautiful town, we always try to stay a day or two, before the tourist hordes descend in the summer.

Well, it is hard to say, but maybe 1" up and down??

I did notice some "stickiness" when I counted the links. Specifically, when I rotated the tire (up on a stand, in neutral), there were some sections that were tighter than others. It was almost like the chain was catching on something. Any thoughts on the cause?

Should be an inch and a half to an inch and 3/4 slack. Your chain has had it . Time for a new one.
