Wet clutch, the plates get stuck together from non-use. Before you start the bike, put in 1st, pull the clutch, and rock it front/back, and you'll feel it break the plates loose. This same thing happens when it's running, and you shift from neutral to 1st, there's a little clunk. I think it's normal for it to be making a different noise in gear with the clutch pulled than in neutral.

Crf gearing calculator

http://crfsonly.com/howto/gearing/mo...calculator.php

stock 14t counter/40t rear final ratio 2.857 60mph=6096 rpm
13t counter/40t rear final ratio 3.077 60mph=6564 rpm
14t counter/43t rear final ratio 3.071 60mph=6553 rpm
these specs all run the stock rear tire size of 120/80-18 and use the stock drive chain lenghth.
14t/43t works well for this 200 lb rider 50% on/off road.
Paul.

Subframe failure detector

I guess if any of us have the right turn indicator melting, it's time to get to a welder.

as i have to order most of the aftermarket parts from the US (in europa you can't even buy a service manual ), i try to keep the orders as minimal as possible because shipping costs to austria are quiet expensive :). already ordered skip plate, 13t sprocket, speedo healer, service manual, radiator guard and folding shift lever.


what do you guys think about clutch and enginecover protection from r&g? i figured it might be worth a look as those covers are quiet expensive to replace.

in #6246 on page 417 of aroud the world in 800 days is his fix....but he's got too much weight, too far back, all concentrated in the 4 vertical bolts of the subframe....the weight has lots of leverage to break the subframe in the picture

Start with their bash plates first...the covers you point out are 4mm plastic....might not be robust enough

I know everybody likes pictures, and I don't post those. But if you were paying better attention, you would realize that that the service manual is available here free of charge.

Thanks, that seemed to help somewhat. The noise is more constant but quieter, and goes away quicker.
