Tip, pack the seal groove (V) with grease before you put the runner/spacer back on. Helps with the wear.
Thanks for the tip. I flipped it over on my first tire change but didnt use enough grease.

Started small then no shifty

New XC sprung a leak

Any help from the collective would be appreciated. New, ~300 miles, xc got hungry and ate a screw that came out of the back half of he chain guide, munched on the cs sprocket guard and chewed a hole in the rubber coolant hose immediately in front of the cs sprocket. 500 mile service scheduled for next Saturday the 6th but it looks like I'll be trailering it there 150 miles and having a 300 mile service instead of 500. Should I be requesting a new cs sprocket and chain? Any thing else?


Thanks for any advice and loctite is your friend!

I'll throw in one to keep an eye out for...

If you tend to touch your pegs down (yes, and I do get a cheek off the seat), keep an eye on your kick-stand safety switch plunger. I bottomed out hard on mid-corner dip once and sheared my plunger clean off. I only realized what I was missing after someone posted pics of what it should look like. Mine's a first model year, I understand they've redesigned it on later models. Now have suspension risers installed (shorter links).

But that will not work if you have the center stand fitted.

Correct. But I personally hate center stands.

^^ also wouldn't help the pegs dragging - on both sides - which I find very disconcerting. The 1/2" risers pretty much solved my problems though, only very rarely touch down now. Being very honest, this Roadie has less ground clearance than my previous stock Harley (an XR1200).

Tell me about it!!

Elderly woman, new van, keyless start/stop "Thought" she put it in park and went in for some dog food. Came back out, doors were locked and it was dry humping my baby. Actually drug it over 6ft and over a curb!!!

She is insured but I have a feeling that I have taken a HUGE loss. Almost had it right the way I wanted it too. Good thing my new Holan Nomada's panniers hadn't been mounted yet :(
