Your wheels are beautiful @Giovanni


My new "used" tires came in today.

I found them on Amazon, a warehouse deal, from 2 different locations. They were returns.

One was 10, the other 12, including shipping.

They are brand new and less than half the cost of the new new tire.

I love a deal.

I would mount them tonight, however as it's below freezing, I will wait a couple of days.

I harvested the new chain from a donor.

A 56 link diamond that measures 56", I think it will work better than the original 55 link that measures 56-1/2" It has two stiff links, some chain lube overnight and if I have time tomorrow evening, it will be on the motor bike.

maybe, maybe not, I do a lot of night riding and could use the extra visibility. It is pretty dark out on the country roads at night.
I would buy a couple of these.

No to the led valve caps, thanks anyway.

Got the chain swapped out and the new rear tire, took it for a real ride in the 40f night air. The bike rides very nicely, smooth and quiet. The tires have great grip, handle really well on corners and are a very nice riding tire.

Pictured first are the original chain, on the right, and the chain on it now.

Both chains, lined up at the first link.

Both chains at the end, the stretched chain still on the right.

The original chain is 7/8" longer, which is part of the reason it sounded so bad, of course when you realize that the longer chain is only 55 links and the short one is 56 links, that adds a whole new dimension to the stretch.
