Finally Stretched My Bike!

Will this work?








Ok, here it is……114 links 520 16/40 the chain is on the loose side but not to loose it will jump the sprocket:




Going to try to drag it hopefully soon and see if the extra length helps out. This will only be a short test of course because the chain will stretch and will have to go back to 112 links. but I think it’s going to be better, new chain, everything oiled good the back wheels spins so easy now with the new chain and sprockets and rear tire. SWB though all the way but who said I couldn't cheat a little

PS...please no advice to go with a bigger Rear Sprocket...the 16/40 is my limit for the HWY ride....It's got over 20k miles but we do 10.0s flat stock but can ride home after that on the HWY in comfort without the extra revs...that is the reason I like that gear setup..thanks

split, safety, cotter pin whatever they call it.
Yeah I saw the adjusters were not up to the collars. I thought I leave that out and see if you pick on that in your reply.Testing you.....
So the question begs. When you hitting the strip with the stretched bike?

lol stetched bike

hopefully next wed.

Maddness, we have a test and tune here quikgix says our track is faster even though in his same setups he ran faster in Bakersfield Talking to one of my friends that works the track here he says the line concrete needs to be re-done. As it would be nice to meet you guys and do some testing/runs out there that's a long way to go for something I have 14miles away ...but will give it some thought though so it's possible :headshake

He probably meant cotter pin but that would be pepper from the fly shit just like the word safety when you know what split means...LOL

Don't matter it was short lived, took the bike out for a quick ride(15miles). I opened it up hard hitting the Hwy in second and the bike pulled very hard but the front didn't get as much air as it usually does just skimmed the road. I thought, hell yeah if it works like that for me on the strip I should be in business.

When I got home though the chain stretched even more(break-in)...It's a no go for me and am now back to 112 links with much more room to go fully back in SWB form.

NO matter, even though it's a hand full at the strip at the same time it's a blast even though it's so short with all that HP.
