    Our chains do that too, VERY objectionable rattle that only disappears under acceleration, reappears when cruising at slower speed, never hear it when above 40 km/hr +/-.

    It doesn't look like a safety issue to me, although they are quite loose compared to my own. I've read that a dab of silicone goo into each bobbin / rotor point will do much to lessen the racket./...

    I'd suggest checking them every so often and the 12k is probably reasonable. I just replaced the lower bearing on the wife's 2013, due to pretty severe notchiness at center. The bearing was fairly...

    And then there's me, I sometimes use both on the same bolt. Use an extremely thin layer of antiseize, pretty much remove it with a cloth then locktite. It actually works pretty well where I suspect...

    Hi, I'm interested in the highly reflective pinstripe-style tape you mentioned but haven't found a reliable source of decent quality tape. Can you say where you found this item?

    Anakee 3 is a weird tire, howls and wears out the front first. But I'll prob get another set because they stick so well. The type of riding you do and the road surface have a lot to do with tire...

    Hey Lyle,
    That's pretty high mileage on the Anakee 3 if you have plenty left. I'm at almost 15,000km on my 2014 and the rear still has some life (maybe 3-4,500km?) but the front is getting square...

    Chain and brakes are cheap stuff, for the most part. More important is the engine and they usually do fine for far more miles than this one has. The cost of parts might halp you get a better deal but...

    Best method I have found to avoid stator failure is to buy a spare and keep it on hand. A m/c battery at 12.6 is edging nearer the lower end of the expected scale...not bad but I'd keep an eye on it....

    I'm not much help for you, but just add that I'd replace the broken stocker with another stocker, these are some of the best mirrors I've used.

    I stand on the pegs 90% of the time when off-road. Bike handles far better than having me as deadweight. Where I ride we almost never see others, so no posing just working with the bike.
