Got it!  Only 18 days from ordering.  It's a full 1 lb lighter than the JT steel sprocket I'm currently running.

Does anybody know a good place to get a DID 530 ZVM chain?

- I think Riders Discount, the sponsor here has the best prices on DID chains, I just got one myself,.

Yep, Riders Discount FTW.  Best price I was able to find anywhere.

I bought some spare parts for it - a compete donorcycle.

I thought I had done a lot of performance upgrades to my Bandit until I saw this one.  Keep an eye on this thread for more of me bragging as I transfer parts to mine.

When I find parts that aren't model specific, I'll post them for sale here.

The master is radial and it has a matching clutch master as well.

Took mine for a little 1900 mile stroll this weekend.

Found Bald River Falls by accident when we were riding the area and staying in Murphy.  It was a cool, drizzly day so we went exploring in the 4Runner and left the bikes behind.  We took Hanging Dog Road out of Murphy and drove at least 20 miles of unpaved roads until we came to the other end of River Road and followed it to the Cherohala passing the waterfall on the way.  We only saw about a dozen cars until we started to get close to the falls.  There is a cool campground in the middle of nowhere right at the NC/TN state line.

Installed new axle tonight.

Of course I had to test it. First test was to compare weight. The original weighed 15.4lbs. The new $68 EBay China made weighed 15lbs. That was reassuring. Then I hit the track and it had no issues.

I need as garage space like this, lol. Would make my life a lot simpler.

I had to move two M/C and a 3wheel Spyder out of this stall to get this much free space. We all need more room.

Sounds like toy Tetris!  I have enough problems fitting my bike in the garage with the cars, lol. Some day I'll live in a garage with bedrooms.

Pulled off my EP oil cooler guard to see if I get lower temps. Bottom row had a pile of pebbles blocking the fins. 

Easily pulled the bearings from my spare rear wheel for powerder coat with a new hammer puller. Wish I had a spare front but a week of rain is almost as good. Will be replacing the steel carrier rotors with alu and new rubber.

Got the Brembos swapped from the wreck to my bike.  Hardest part was stripping the old wrecked fairing from the donor.  I'll never own a bike with a fairing.  Naked FTW!

Rode both of them today. Both were short hour or so rides. CBR solo and Connie with my wife, Amy. Good times on both bikes.

Just finished a organized ADV ride in the Vinton Co. area. Lot's of shaded forest roads. It did start to get hot in the afternoon so we broke off the route at 121 miles. Great Day
