Primary Drive is RMATV's house brand, I've used them on other bikes in the past. RMATV gets me with the needless adding of $50 more of stuff I don't need to get the free shipping!
I use Amazon Prime and get free 2 day shipping on most items with no minimum purchase

so what are the symptoms of a worn carb slide?

took the sucker apart found a trashed air screw o ring and nothing else but a clean carb. did notice my slide has slight grooves on it from wear. bike is running great but has a slight hesitation at part throttle sometimes. wondering where else to look.

I didn't know about Primary Drive. Others have told me to avoid Rocky Mtn's house brand before.

I have Amazon Prime, and love it, so I'll order from Amazon.

Thanks again.

I agree with Tsotsie since I have already been down that road. After the stock chain was worn out, I replaced it with a low cost chain ($36) with a lower tensile strength rating and had the make adjustments 5 times within 1000 miles. The chain was constantly stretching. After the inital 1K miles of usage, I insatlled a higher quality chain that was recommended by friend, which cost around $70, and do not have to make any adjustments. I have around 4500 miles on the new chain.

The funny thing is I don't mention anywhere that I'm trying to penny pinch or seek out a "cheap" chain. I was trying to ask for suggestions and get some names for ANY. I'm 26 and I know already that you get what you pay for =]

This is a KLR thread, so, cheap is sometimes assumed, I assume.

Assumed cheap? Nah! That is just the guise. Deceptively astute, more likely!

I use the Rocky Mountain...

Primary drive sprockets, I've had good luck with them. I buy the highest tensil strength chains I can get (o-ring) and usually only have to adjust my chains when I replace my tires every 8-9K miles. Lube approx. once a week, 500-600 miles. Never had a problem with chains, knocking on wood right now.

I keep a DID x-ring on the bike with good lube regularly. That's cheaper in the long run. But I always have the cheapest highest tensile std chain with me as a spare ($25 Factory Spec by Raider, 8900# tensile). I've given one away once to help out someone. I don't want to give away a $80 chain so that's why the cheapy spare. Get the best you can afford now but upgrade when you can. Buy the highest tensile strength.
