Default Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

Finally swapped to the new 36 tooth rear sprocket on The Pig.
Had to shorten the chain and redo the tensioner to get things aligned again.

Used my usual trick to break the chain as you can see to the left of the tensioner. The spot welds are barely visible where I broke the chain.

I am glad I finally swapped to the 36. It calms the bike down just right and still gives good cruising at lower speeds which make the motor happier.
I expect slightly better mileage too but we shall see...
If more is better, then too much is just enough.
If you can't afford it, build it yourself.
