Is it possible to fit a 17T front sprocket instead of the standard 15T ? Got a loooong road run to do.

sent using my fingers and voodoo magic.

It is, but with the stock chain, a 16T front won't even go on.

I'll toggle to and fro with the 15 and the 17 on this bike and just flip the axle sliders 180 degrees to deal with the chain slack just like I did on the 640A....but I'll have to get a new freakin' chain in order to do so.

Vibes.

Just did an oil and filter change and now I've got pretty nasty vibes through the foot pegs
Bike was smooth as silk before this - anybody had this? 3500miles on the clock but it feels like it's not even run in yet.

Oil leak

So I've been chasing around an annoying little oil leak for the last month and finally found it. Damn thing is leaking around the gear position sensor. O-ring must be bad.

I just had the same issue on my 950A. On the advice of another I used an o-ring from my Harbor Freight metric o-ring kit. Stretched out to the perfect size. Nice and snug good seal.

Edit- The one I used was 25mm x 3.0mm. Works perfect. The stock size is non-standard 27.5mm x 2.5mm and would have to be ordered in.

Oh cool, I've got one of those HF kits. Thanks, I'll give that a try.

a 16T front sprocket fits just fine with a stock chain on my 2008E.

Mos Confussione'

Meant to say I couldn't move the axle blocks forward enough with the stock chain to mount a 17 on the front.

Gimme a break-the grey hairs just started coming in.

Mine told me they'd do it for $80, but my bike runs like a scalded ape on fire and gets killer gas milage as it sits, so I passed.
