It's probably a sales technique. They'll sell more un-needed chain.

15 x 48 at 110 works for me. Adjuster will be at 5 or 7.
I always buy extra links to have spare O rings in case I need to open the master link.

Is 7-8k miles a lot? Was it worth double or triple most other tires? I don't know since it was my first, but honestly have no complaints. But I don't really know any better. I do fear hating everything else I put on after though.

Has anyone used Goldentyre from Italy? Considering a set of those on my 'new' 1994 I just got last week. Going to rebuild it and replace a lot of parts. It only has 5,500 miles but looks like it's taken a handful of really hard spills.
For me I never had a rear tire go more than 3200 or so till I came across the 908, but I ride a long ways on the street to get to the off road. I read on another forum a guy got 12K from a 908 on a KTM 990! But I think the 990 uses a wider tire than a 140.

I had the misfortune to have two blow outs on the front 908 on my Husky. Both due to spokes breaking and punching through the tube. Both times I rode the completely flat 908 over twenty miles to get home. That tire is still on my Husky.

Golden Tyre, HUMMMMM checking that out.

Temp gage

Go to an industrial hose supplier and ask for a Seal Fast PT1550. This thermometer has a range of 50 to 550 DF. This is an industrial thermometer made to endure a tough environment and not a "candy " ass application.

Drill a tight hole for the stem along side the dip stick.

Here I go again.
Use the biggest sprockets you can to get the desired reduction.
The chain will deflect less around a larger diameter sprocket and wear less as will the sprockets. More teeth to absorb the wear.

I feel like a dirty BMW rider the cheapest closet DID Xring chain was at the Touratech store. They were very nice and helpful though.

Thanks for the advice Steve.

Anyone have a favorite chain breaker?

If you just want to break the chain this one works well no grinding required.



If you want to be able to break the chain, press on the new link and rivet it, then this is a good option.



There are cheaper chain tools, but I'm told you must grind the riveted head off of the chain link's pin, or you will break the tools pin.

Ahhh, now we are getting somewhere. I bounced around a bit looking for a place that might sell Seal Fast stuff - I didn't turn up anything really close. But based on the description of the unit it seems like what I'm looking for is an industrial pocket thermometer. The 5" stem, 1" dial, 50-550, seems like a standard size.

I'll probably toss one in with my next amazon order:
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B001U1U57G/ref=biss_dp_t_asn

or maybe this one...
http://www.amazon.com/Rubbermaid-Com.../dp/B005KCG4QC

I'm sure the cooking thermometers are fine, but with the aftermarket tank the 1" dial face would give nice clearance. I fumble enough as it is just getting the dipstick in and out.

Thanks again!

Fritzcoinc - I'm surprised to hear you run with a temp gauge or even a dipstick after reading your posts from this weekend
