Where's the best place to buy a new swingarm chain slider? Those are kind of pricey. I want to start fresh with a few items so I know where I am at.......especially on the high wear items.

I need to buy a maintenance book. Will be digging in real soon.
Gary,

Check on the WR forum, HighFive posted some great photo laden tutorials on various maintenance and modifications.

You can get the slider from Rocky Mountain OEM parts or ServiceHonda...

I got a manual for you...

I have a SeatConcepts and like it, but its not the low one...

Grease up the steering bearings if it hasn't been done too!!

Merry-Go Round!

It was great to see most of the riders adhering to the "All gear at all times" philosophy while on the merry go round. Riding jackets with armor o' plenty, hope it didn't spin too fast...
