Didn’t like the 14/49 gearing ... took too much away from the street manners.  So today I installed a 46T rear.  Changed out the sprocket bolts and nuts for a harder metal, since the OEM nuts were getting a little rounded on the corners.  Had to remove four links since the 114 chain was at the limit of the axle blocks, and 112 is a multiple of 14.  Also changed the oil and filter.  Then went for a little ride around town.

Next I’ll tackle the IMS 4.7g tank install.

Big tank installed.  Got it done in about two hours, taking my time.

Replaced the clutch dampers on the 450 today.





They were definitely due for replacement...there's not supposed to be any play.

I lost 6.8 pounds this evening...








Replaced the stock muffler with a titanium one.

 I wasn't looking to replace the OEM muffler, but I found this one used for too good of a deal on one of the FB Africa Twin owner's pages...I couldn't afford NOT to buy it. It's not really any louder than stock, and the dyno graph only shows about a 2hp increase...but any weight shed from this beast helps.

It's made by Laser, but came unmarked...a couple of minutes and $2.99 on Ebay yielded a Taiwanese made aluminum emblem that turns it into a factory Yoshimura/HRC racing exhaust.

I think I'm also gonna leave the pannier racks off and run it in secsay mode for awhile.

Replaced the broken plastic from the last trip to the Ridge.

I’ll find out tomorrow if my wiring is ok. Looks tidy, even if it don’t work.

Also replacing a broken kick start shaft on the YZ 250.



Might be time for a new clutch basket while I am in here!
