Re: Two items that could save your life
To be honest, a rag joint isn't all that hard to line up properly, it's a matter of putting in a little bit of effort and will save you trouble and the truth is anybody can do it, if they say they can't then they either don't have the intelligence and shouldn't own one of these bicycles or are just lazy and looking for an excuse. That being said,once you start doing the high power builds (large 4 strokes, morinis) the standard rag joint becomes a hazzard to use and a hub adapter becomes a necessity. As fas as the spring vs standard tensioner, there is literally almost no point in arguing because it will massively vary from bike to bike, location and geography as well.
Life is like riding a bicycle. In order to keep your balance, you must keep moving.
