Arch, if you are happy with a really pap Husky then by all means don't go the power up and decat route. :pot:
Once he reaches our age Bertie, he'll do all mods, including the JD Tuner!🙀

You only live once! 😉

On the recent Swazi Hard Core Ride, Lee on his 690 could not pull away from me, from a 1st gear hard gravel rolling start! 🙀👍👍

Archie, once you turn 50, ready yourself for a Chett Tuned Subaru Forester 2.5 XT! 🙀🙀🙀

Yip I know the feeling, Xpat was also complaining about my 610 keeping up with his 690, I think he said something like: Husky has no business keeping up with 690!

So I've replaced both sprockets. Front one shown below.



You can also see the little cut out I made in the gear lever 3 weeks ago. I guess I should consider beefing up the bottom to strengthen it a bit.



I've also removed the tank to see where my oil leak comes from...



Looks like I found the culprit... Any idea of where I can get a new tappet cover gasket before next June?

The chain that removed was a 520 EK chain and it was still in reasonably good shape, but I thought now that I'm doing both sprockets and since I did a few hundred k's on that chain with a busted rear sprocket that was likely slipping every now and again, it was worth doing it all at once.

Tomorrow (likely from halftime during the Bok game, if they're more than 20 points behind) I plan to do the clutch washers that I've received from Straatie.

BTW, thanks, I collected them from PostNet.  ;D  Forgot to tell you that they have arrived.

Then, when all is closed up again, it's the big cleanup!!!

I cut my own replacement tappet cover gaskets - not difficult and not worth waiting who knows how many months!? The problem with these bikes though is not the gaskets but that the oil migrates up the stud threads and leaks out! - you need to seal them with gasket silicone.  :thumleft:

Thanks Dom! I'll have a look once the cover is off. Maybe I can reuse the gasket and just seal the stud holes as mentioned.

Yes if careful they can often be reused. Some have also added ribbed copper washers to help seal.

Around 17 000 km. Swung a few spanners this morning. Haven't gotten to the clutch washer part yet, but will hopefully get there this afternoon.

Will post some pics later...

You'll surely gain a few horses with the new chain and sprockets!😉

Even a slack chain feels like its robbing those ponies!😔

Your old sprockets are really fubar!!🙀

I fitted a Stealth rear sprocket from Chain Tech SA - good service and great product.

PBR is made in Italy, so it's a good match...  ;)

Is the rear PBR as well as the counter sprocket? Yes meant to be good and in fact this is the other make of sprocket that Chain Tech import.

Yes, both are PBR. I'm convinced that I could find them in the correct sizes due to the fact that they are both Italian.

Btw, this is what I got up to in the afternoon...



Note the gasket maker on the threads of the bolts. They already had copper washers, but it obviously didn't resolve the issue.

Did you check the bolts of the top, engine to frame bracket? The two top bolts are generally loose. I actually snapped both, and replaced them when I tightened them!

Those bolts....I have almost given up trying to find a way for them to stay tight. Loctite, locknuts, anything I try, next time the tank comes off, they are loose again. Next time I am going with M8! I suppose they take a lot of vibration and just work loose no matter what. One more reason to fix your bike after every hectic ride (ie Swaziland)

Arch, I am going to make a prediction that your washers are properly shot, at 17k I would not expect anything less. Mine was gone at 10k.

The ones in RED or the ones in YELLOW?

I haven't noticed them being loose, but I'll have a look tomorrow when I do the re-assembly. Thanks for the heads up.  :thumleft:
