I ordered one. I tend to do a bunch of hard core powerline rocky trails so the lower gearing will be helpful. I hope it can lift the front without so much clutch slipping as well

I'm curious if you ran into any uniqueness or oddness when doing the swap. Did it install like any other motorcycles front sprocket?

Simple install. No issues. I needed to adjust the chain anyway...

Planning to order the Holan Crash Bars soon.

Does anyone have any "experience" with these bars? Pictures & feedback after some trail time? From the crash bars thread they seem to be the best designed set out there and more visually appealing than the Happy Trails and better engine case coverage, yet nobody had them because they aren't sold by the major distributors out there.

Thanks

I have the Holan Crash bars. They went on with out a problem and are holding up well. But I have not had "opportunity" to give them a real test yet. But I do think they will do well if and when that happens.

What did you use to break the nut free and re-tighten? 36mm socket? Impact or ratchet?

Excellent, I don't have an impact gun. Ordered a 36mm from Grainger for $11, it will be in Friday morning

1/2 in drive breaker bar. Already had the socket. Was actually easy. Front sprocket on my Multi was a bitch!

Careful with the NoToil and uni filters...



The regular red label NoToil is alcohol based and does not play nice with the glue Uni Filter uses - see the separation of the filter material from the base material in the pic.

The green label stuff is not alcohol based and supposed top be safe. I haven't tried it yet.

I did first cleaning with Notoil Eco on unifilter. I had to clean the petroleum based oil off first, ten used ecocleaner and oil. Hard to tell if it was completely saturated but I went by the look of the inside and by using enough to squeeze excess out along the whole filter. The gasket grease sure helps with reinstall. Only 2K on it so i won't know for a bit on how well it catches dirt.

Should have asked, I could have brought mine for later.... Pretty sure I have the 36 for changing either the sprocket or the axle on the bandit.

I do have the spacer... You still haven't told me what it's for....
