    Bump from the dead. TGR pitched in and did a chain and sprockets swap for @archetypicalone because, well, it's about as easy as lending her a chainbreaker. Sprocket wise it was -1 on the front, alloy sprockets, 520 conversion and pretty easy job really.

    The front sprocket cover on these is a bit of a pain to get off, and, they actually weigh a lot for a dodgy bit of plastic. To make life easier and because race is best for the road, I whipped up @archetypicalone a 2mm sprocket cover out of some spare aluminium sheet I had sitting around.

    Not bad for 45 minutes work + a bit of time to paint it blaaaaaaaaaaaack.

    One day, factory TGR parts will increase the value of bikes tenfold.

    Depending on the bike in question, that could probably happen now.

    That's no way to talk about @Epona's bike while she's on holidays!

    Hrrm. Wonder what we could do when we do the caliper upgrade. Race stator and clutch covers?

    Probably better to drop the front. Maybe we can measure the sag and go from there? :).
