Buell,

that strap holding the bag tied around the frame will probably melt due to exhaust heat. Mine did (GL), had to make a bracket for this.

Thanks for the heads up! I will look into some other solution!

I've used an impact both times that I've done it. Very slick.

All depends how you tie it. Mine hasn't and it's got lots, and lots of K on it with the ultra thin Powerbomb header.




As for chain talk, the XRR has seen a few primary drive chains, but the one that broke? The RK X-ring.

Thankfully it didn't pile up.

You just have to be different don't you?

I do.

I'm not saying they are great chains. I likely won't use one again (primary drive), but after having an RK chain snap on me as well (the links broke, not the pins!) I don't think I'll use RK either. Their price range is great, but I'd have a tough time trusting it.

DID's are just way too expensive.

Depends who you ask. This is the OEM Jap bikes come with, and I've found anything else an also-run - hence will only buy this brand.

You got instructions you followed for your DIY setup? I know a chain oiler is pretty simple to bodge together, but I am curious. I wanna run a oiler on my non XR-R.

Yeah, as Will said, impact works a treat. No issues with magnatism

Rebuild parts list

Here is a link to my rebuild OEM parts list i have created so far. does this look good? did i miss anything vital? i'm hoping some of the bearings are fine so i can save some $$. thinking about skipping the tensioner also, since it works fine, along with some other things.

I had a primary drive o-ring on an XR400, got two weekend rides on it, probably 400 miles. It's supposed to be their "good" chain. The link plates started splitting where the pins are inserted on at least 1/2 of the links. It could have snapped anytime, surprised it didn't. I won't trust them anymore, too much risk of getting stranded or jacking up the bike.
