Molten jou verhale van skade maak my oe bitter seer!

Maar goeie werk, niks beter as om n lekker bike lekker hard te ry.

Tot dit tyd is vir die herstelwerk periode...

Aag wat. Ek kry so min kans om te ry, dit werk okay uit om maar te werk aan die bike tussen trips!

Maar hy is nou mooi uitgesort, behalwe vir die ryer is daar nie meer veel swak punte oor nie.

Ai, ek het n konstante verlange terug na daai trip. Dit darm maar net lekker al was dit harde werk

I havent updated in a while...

So, chain and sprockets...long story.
I bought the bike at 20k km not sure if sprockets hage been changed but assumed not. So I was under the impression you can toutch 40k km on sprockets and taking into consideration that the bike had a Scott oiler on I thought they were good to go to 30k km. At around 27k km I wanted to test sprocket teeth changes and changed the rear sprocket. (Knowing you should do all in one go but I just wanted to test.)

Stock is 17F and 42R.
I test OEM 17F and aftermarket 44R and liked it.
Decided I had to fit new everything and then saw I should have long since done so.
New stuff is a 16F with the powerparts 42R. (I wanted to do 43 or 44 R but it was either 42 or 45 in the orange)
Chain is the gold plated option from Tracmac.
Roughly 16F was R650, 42R was R1350, slider R350 and chain R1650

So my front was fubar. My chainslider was fubar and rear sprocket teeth was bent. Not very happy with myself. Bike is at 31k km currently.

I love the orange sprocket!

Ek het nooit voor onraad vermoed nie. Weet nie hoe...

Nee alle sprockets OEM. Daar een of ander storie dat jy bike drive shaft kan seer maak met aftermarket voor sprocket. En agter het ek OEM gekoop vir die looks

Jayzuz :o   That front sprocket....Are those missing teeth from having the cut some off to clear the swingarm or just wear?





Slider still looks like it had some life though.......Question....Can you replace the slider without moving the swingarm?

^ nope, did not cut sprocket to take it out.
Maybe top gear top tip there... ride the front sprocket till past its end of life to ease replacement. I was expecting lots of hassles also...

And another no, I twisted and bend it a bit but got it through without to much issues. Obviously before fitting the chain.

So thats a "Yes" you can fit it without moving the swingarm?  :biggrin:  haha

Wow. If i had read this thread, I wouldn't have bought the 1190. Hahaha.

Glad I did, though. I've got a 2016, still under factory warranty, and with extended warranty for another 2 years. Lets hope I a) Don't need to use the warranty, or b) If I do, I don't have your luck with dealerships.  :lol8:

That being said, I haven't had the chance to abuse mine like you have. Yet.
It's definitely going to happen, though. Only had it 2 months.
Give me time, then I'll start my own "The 1190 is the best and worst bike I've ever had" thread.

At a cost of just under R7k, I'd rather have the extended warranty and not need it than the other way around.

If your warranty is already expired, you can only get around half the cover than if you extend it while it's still covered. For example, the MotoDrive1 warranty covers R50k for engine failure, MotoDrive2 covers R25k.

I am not so sure the exended warranty would have really been worth it for me on my 2013 even, so definitely not worth it on a 2016.

I have actually spend a lot of thought on what issues one can expect on a 2016 compared to all the issues I have had. From the top of my head I can only think of the head unit mounts that can break. Pretty solid bike then the 2016.

I washed mine today and realised the extra money spend on that sprocket is a bit of a waste when you do gravel. I still have some little things to sort after the last trip but nothing major that can cause a DNF.

To be honest, my heart does bleed a little when ai see the general condition of my bike when I wash it. Then I have to remind myself of what I have done with it, experienced and still can experience with it.

That bike is made to be used, like a spanner!
Surely it needs to pick up some marks, otherwise how do you remember what trip you did when and what happened on it?
If you just want to look at your bike, rather buy a poster for your wall and you can change it every week!
Like that orange rear sprocket though, looks really nice!

Go see the movie Cars2 again. Mater is proud of all his dents and scratches as it is a reminder of good times spent with friends  :lol8:

(Maybe I have seen that movie a few times more than the average person...)

Sounds like you have small kids that really love cars...  :peepwall:

M0lten, I really enjoyed the last trip that we did in Lesotho!!!  All those marks are really worth it!  Seeing that I did not really had to pay for any of the damages  :pot: :pot:

Haha I also know that scene with Mater by heart now!

Maybe I will slap a sticker kit on the bike after this summer, I have really been longing to put some stickers on! Combined with that I will make the crashbars black as well, its just easier to touch up than the orange.

What frustrates me most actually is not the broken panel or deep scratches on the windscreen, but the fine scratches all over the side and tank panels from riding through branches.

Man.  I have the same relationship with my old wrangler.

I've beaten the hell out of it offroad and it's done daily duty for many years, fighting with taxi's etc.    It has it's battle scars and dings. I probably couldve gone a little easier on it, but it was kinda meant to be hammered offroad and that makes me feel better.

I love the salty old bastard even though the heater is disconnected, the ride will make you pee blood and the clutch can be used as a leg press.

I'm considering a wrap to prevent the scratches before they begin. I also have a buddy with exactly the same bike, so I want to personalize mine a bit.

Now it's the decision between between just plain matte black or some graphics.
