    An inexpensive digital caliper will take the guess work out of mushrooming those rivets. Easy to use and you’ll sleep better


    Iím supposed to respect my elders, but itís getting harder and harder for me to find one now ..

    I have done several chains successfully with the Motion Pro PBR chain tool, and it is holding up well. I think the price of it was reasonable.
    Yep, I think MotionPro is the next buy...for a 520 chain... On a side note...I went and test rode the new Royal Enfield 650 Interceptor..that is a sweet bike at that price... (I rode the NC700x over to the test ride)..It is geared similiar to the nc700x, almost the same HP, and the stock seat is slightly better than the stock Nc700 seat LOL...if it only was shaft drive......

    digital caliper can only be used to measure the thickness of the plates as compared to the other links and you have to remove the riveter to measure after you have already did the rivet,,,or am I missing something (not a mechanic by nature or trade---unless it is a computer)....

    Ordered a set of GIVI Gravel soft panniers. Thinking about doing a couple of sections of the MABDR this summer. Maybe the whole thing next spring. One of the managers at my dealer just did the whole thing. He says section 2 was one of the best. I can leave the house and get to the start in four hours. Section one is 138 miles of deep gravel. Spend the night at Mountain Lake Lodge (Dirty Dancing) Section two is 78 miles, supposed to be really great riding and views, then home in 4 hours. Two days, one night. Good trial for this old man. Haven't ridden a full day in two years. Better work on getting in shape.
    Dance as if no one is watching.

    The install has two parts. One part is pressing the plate to match the other links. One part mushrooming the heads to the diameter specified by the manufacturer.

    Sounds fun! Im not too big on offroading the NC or camping, road riding is just my preference, but that does sound like a fun, challenging trip.

    I have been bitten by the trackday bug after 10 years of not being able to ride on the track. Now's my chance! I got it cleared with Sportbike Track Time to allow me to pass tech with my highway peg setup, so I've gotta round up some leathers, boots, gloves, and some sticky rubbers and go hammer all 51 mini-horses the 670cc pumps out this fall. May not be pretty, and definitely won't be the fastest, but it's gonna be fun as hell!

    Another great ride in the North Carolina mountains. Beautiful tree canopy covered curvy roads with an occasional scenic view. Most of these secondary roads are well paved yet have almost no traffic. When I do get behind someone they often pull over to let me go by. Other times I'll stop a few minutes and let them get well ahead.

    100 miles yesterday. Yesterday was just a test ride with the new Corbin seat on the way to the post office to mail a box to my daughter. 96 miles to get to the post office. 4 miles back home

    This morning my wife and rode to get a grilled cheese sandwich at a dairy farm that has a restaurant on the property. They use their own cheese. So 66 miles for a sandwich.

    Sadly, no motorbike ...but I'm on the side of the pond where most of this forum live, celebrating Independence Day (or Traitors Day as we Brits call it) in Santa Barbara.

    Anyone want to lend me their NC for the day tomorrow...?
