Rode to work today. On my way back had quite the experience. 

Was in 4th gear and laied into it some and bam. 

 

Case saver did it's job. 

Whole bolt came out and some out didn't mess up the threads.

I still think something had to come loose or jump up off the road and get between the sprocket and chain.  I worked with chains constantly in industrial automation and those suckers are pretty damn strong.  Even the Itty bitty stuff.   It's hard for me to believe that 400cc just pulled a chain half in two.   Not really disbelieving you Brap, just seems like a very weird failure and right after you got it back from having the suspension right next to it done, too.

Did a few hundred miles this weekend with the better half's cousin. Didn't get in to much trouble. 

Scored a track stand out of some scrap the neighbor brought over.

 

Even works like a charm. 

 

Also did me some battery's updating, started to crank slow so..... Splurged a little. Ol battery was 5.8lbs and new antigravity is 1.5 on my scale.

Only run one mirror so the clutch perch has a open hole, one body clip later and it look better.

Stock speedo gearbox was on the fritz so did some upgrading. 

Torn down. 

new goodness. Didn't miss much pictures wise. Mostly just a bunch of wire routing and wiring. 

Got a left side spacer and wheel seal to replace speedo gearbox with, broke my axle socket and forgot to get a new one.

Drz got a master rebuild since it was starting to feel crunchy. 

Some titanium banjo bolts I got a from a friend who works for a Honda race team. 

This is such a pain in the ass setup to bleed even with a mityvac.

You are a good adult in the game Dead Rising.

I guess it's safer than aiming the saw forward or to the side.

I'll take it as a win.

I bet you could do some exciting wheelies if you get the saw running first. Sparks for days!

In reply to thatsnowinnebago :

I did do a small wheelie for the kids on my way home. 

USB heated grips are a major win in my book  

120deg on high, and are over grips so I can leave my favorite grips underneath. 

Bought the drz 1 year ago today. 

Canyon dancer tie down rings are a product I didn't know I needed so bad.
