    Sorry, maybe you misunderstood. I meant to say hard rubber inserts on the surface of the sprocket. Not inside the sprocket. There's a bonafide reason they are there. You know what it is. Let's see...

    Holy crap! And it's WELDED to the CS! Surprised the bearing/seal survived the intense heat generated. Can't think of a way to change the sprocket either. Not cut it off as the heat would soften the...

    When we say chain "stretch," we really infer chain wear.

    Since each link shares such a small amount of wear, the wear is measured over a series of links. A worn chain will be longer than when it...

    The CRF250L is going to be A LOT less “energetic” than your previous “R” model.
    The engine will have 2/3rds the power of the R model. The suspension will be a horrible compromise of street & dirt....

    That's true, the FXR isn't a Dyna, for the reasons you state. However, the Dyna line did take many cues from the FXR line.

    Very true. Always adjust the chain when the countershaft/swingarm pivot, and the rear axle are all "in line." (This makes for the greatest distance between the rear axle and countershaft.)

    Many tire makers are offering rebates during their annual "promo" period. Continental/Dunlop/Pirelli are just a few. They should have something in the "90/10" combo you seek. (90% road/10% offroad.)
