So I got the side fariings off, Counter-sprocket cover off, CS off, and the chain ready.
As planned my friends came over this morning, on time, we got the old chain off, cut down the new chain, and got the riveted link on it too.
One of the friends I knew had the tool, but had never used it yet, so I invited one I knew had used his, so he could see it done.
And after the new master link was put on and the ends of the pins were made wider with the tool,
My friend watching, and I said....'That's it?'
So we continued to speak SportBike, and had a few of my homebrews! They both really liked them, and caught a buzz too.
I continued to work on my bikes, and got everything back together, got my fork tubes and Yoshi muffler and midpipe off of #1.0, and installed the muffler and midpipe on #2.0.
I really like the sound of the Yoshi much better, I had to open the garage door in the storm we are having and start 'er up. Both mufflers are straight thru flu, but the Yoshi has more packing around the muffler and a bit longer.
** Son of a biscuit!!
As I'm on the ground/under the bikes, I notice the dogbones- while they look the same, have a different # stamped on them.
So I measure them center to center- and sure enough- they are 3/8" different!
So thinking about it, I'm thinking the one with the longer dogbone- should be lower?
#1.0 is 3/8" longer! I guess someone had lowered that one a little bit?
Seriously thinking about changing the dogbones out between the two also!
To the shorter of the two- making it a little taller- I'll tippitoe a bit more, oh well.
