Is the balancer chain simular to a timing chain, and is it a major PIA if it needsto be replaced, and dose it destroy the motor if it goes south fast. Even if the engine is toast i might get it to build a hybrid bike any way, but i would have to get it dirt cheap for that. I still need to confirm it has a valid street title ect... Might even be able to see it run. More research tonight, its only 1/4 mile from my house.

Thanks everyone! I just ordered the Acerbis tank from justgastanks.com They have a coupon code for ADVRiders that saved me $14.00 and free shipping.

Can't wait to install it so I don't have to worry about finding gas out in the sticks.

Acerbis vs Stock Tank Weight

Wondering who has weighed them and if there is much difference.

Sorry, no, I'm asking about the tanks, not the bike. I'm trying to find out what the tanks weigh and the difference between the two in weight, regardless of the bike.

Front Brake Caliper hanger - small parts?

Just did the full Galfer supermoto 320mm front disk upgrade (via ProCycle), with their pads, braided hose, and a longer caliper hanger for my supermoto wheelset. Wow, big improvement on the road! It actually slows down pretty fast when you grab a handful. What a concept.

But... I still want to change back and forth to the stock wheels easily, and don't really need the extra power, or want to ding up the big disk in the dirt, so switching the big disk back and forth on the hubs, or getting another one for the 21" wheel is out, not to mention the extra $$.

So in addition to switching the front drive sprocket (bigger for dirt, smaller for road, duh) and the wheels themselves, I also have to change the caliper hangers (so the caliper fits either the stock or 320mm disk), no big deal.

But I've also got to change three small parts that attach directly to each hanger: a little flat springs that holds in one end of the pads, a flimsy little rubber boot, and one slide pin that screws into the hanger.
What a hassle. And I just know that damn spring is going to fly across my garage and get lost at some point.
Ok. So I go to partsfish.com and try to order an extra set. Well, you can guess what's coming... you can get the rubber boot (#7 in image linked below) and the slide pin (#6), but if you want that little brake pad retaining spring, Suzuki will sell it to you, but ONLY if you get a new brake hanger too (#11). Both for only $70. What a deal!
Click link to see blow up of all the parts.

So... Any Zuke nuts here run into this issue themselfs and solve it? Has it been threaded about already on ADR? I tried to search and can't find it on the DR thread.
Or does anyone know a source for a substitute brake caliper brakepad retaining spring (or whatever they call it) that fits the DR caliper?
Is this spring a generic motorcycle brake part I can easily find at any well stocked moto shop?

Thanks a bunch inmates.

i used to do this exact setup (only used a smaller front sprocket for off road, but im sure thats what you meant too?). i only ever had the pin (part 6 in your pic) as an extra. from what i can remember its the only part that requires any real work in the change over; unscrewing from one and into the other bracket. the rubber boot pulled out and pushed back into its new home easily enough and, correct me if im wrong, but doesnt that spring stay in place as long as you dont remove the pads?

Yeah, what you said about using small sprocket for dirt. What was I thinking?

And, yes, the spring does need to move from one bracket to the other.

Guess I'll just switch the spring when changing brackets, and get the other two parts online so I don't have to mess with them too.

Now that it's been around awhile, what's the consensus of opinion for it's use in the DR? Has anyone actually used it for starting in a cold climate; or run heated gear or grips with it?
