I just cannot get used to riding on tar with my 05 WR. Being mechanically 'sensitive' I feel I am torturing the bike. Blasting through the bush I don't notice it
The gearing is stock and I don't want to change it, as it works great off-road. Fifth gear gives a decent cruising speed without wringing the throttle, but the chain - replaced two weekends ago - seems to be slapping alot. On high revs I don't notice it. I fitted new guides and adjusted the chain in the middle of the spec.
Is this something to live with? I had considdered DS'ing the bike, but cannot see myself doing a trip with the chain shaving away at my swingarm.
You guys that DS regularly, do you notice it?
