New chain and sprockets!





I kept the old chain on WAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYY too long. 26,000 miles
It was in bad shape! 12 missing rollers with many more broken still hanging on.
One of the pins had started to wear through and was oval'ing out the holes in the side plates.
A disaster waiting to happen. I will never take a chain past 20,000 miles again.




Both of these chains are 118 links

Replaced this


with a new Yuasa.
Because of this

that's my stock Regulator/Rectifier. That's a crack with a seep of solder. Kind of explains the battery. Also explains the odd charging issues I've been chasing

Added this as well. Because when the R/R went it fried all the bulbs, hi, low, tail, and brake lights as well as the little five watt bulb in the headlight assembly. This came from an 12 BMW five series wreck. The car was totaled and this was debris tossed into a garbage can. Grabbed it and started playing. Not completely installed but damn!

Cleaned/checked the clutch oil jet in the 1190 today. What a PITA getting the jet out!!!

Finally I put some Be Ray grease on a Q tip and stuck the jet to it. It finally pulled out. Now that I know the trick it should take 5 minutes and not an hour

Just curious which KTM you have that has the crap R/R? Those of us 690 owners are often upgrading to MOSFET R/Rs.
