Sounds exciting DW. Does it reduce some of the vibration you get through the bars and seat when out on the black stuff??

yes John, it's alot smoother and quieter on black top and gravel roads, big reduction in vibrations & chain noise / back lash

$1.60 for a fair strtch and i didn't feel like i was thrashing it to death

You could argue the Cush drive gives smoother power delivery resulting in diminished likelihood of loss of traction and possibility of falling off on those icy UK roads in winter
The Cush should also reduce chain and drive line wear resulting in long term savings

Ooooor just plea for forgiveness, sometimes easier than asking for permission as is often said!

crf wheels

Hello Ditchwitch. You just mentioned you had to machine 4mm off one of the spacers. which side? i'm running crf wheels as well but with even spacers both sides. I thought maybee mine was out. sound like i might have to adjust mine.
I've been running the latest kush sprocket , 1000klms no dramas yet.

it was taken from the outter spacer on the sprocket side, i felt it needed to be done so the sprocket would run at the same offset as the stock XRR wheel

Gps....

Anyone out there using a GPS on the 650R? What is the good mount for it? I have tried the Ram mount for Montana & found it vibrated too much and dropped out under the occasional big throttle. Next I made my own mount out of a Nolathane sway bar bush for a Falcon. Even worse I reckon. When I run the unit on batteries it is perfect.

Is the Touratech mount worth a look? Fucken dear.
