now that the sprocket assembly has been mounted and torqued to specs, next up is the chain. since i didn't remove the chain from the dss, i bought a new chain. got the DID 525 VX pro-street x-ring chain, as opposed to the regina chain used on the dss

i also got me a chain tool essential for cutting and riveting the new chain


the DID chain came in a package of 110 links. per manual, oem 796 chain is 104 links. but on the dss (795), chain is 106 links. so i got conservative (in doubt) and cut only 4 links at first. test fitted and found chain to be 2 links too long. another cut and indeed only 104 links are needed


satisfied with 104 links, i put on the riveting anvil and pin in the chain tool and permanently affixed the chain to the drive system

as can also be seen in the photo above, i have already installed the sensor for the healtech speedo healer. as you must know, the oem speed sensor for the dss 795/696 (non-abs) uses 6 bolts from the rotor as "pick-up" signal. on the ss 796/1100 (non-abs), it picks up signal from only 4 rotor bolts. the speedo healer kit is essential to calibrate the speed indicated on the dash. otherwise, indicated speed is 30% slower than actual speed. for example in my case before calibration, my indicated speed was 70 kph but my actual speed based on gps was 100kph

since this bike (795ss) has effectively become a 796 clone, i shall base the specs as such. 796 chain gap at the bottom run halfway between sprockets says 61-63mm (middle of chain to swingarm). got out the spanner and initially adjusted accordingly


satisfied with the chain gap, took out the torque wrench and set to 31 n-m for eccentric hub pinch bolts. torqued at 1-2-1 sequence using 12mm socket


torqueing bolt #1 (31 n-m)


then over to bolt #2


then back to bolt #1


note:

after this initial adjustment, it is necessary to re-check the chain gap after the bike has been ridden a few rounds around the block... then re-adjust as needed

got some time off to update...

now, for the rearset assembly. i didn't like the oem "chicken wing" rearset so i got something from the s*r monster. the kickstand should be installed with the left rearset as they share one of the three 8mm allen bolts (middle) to mount them. since the kickstand is bolted between the front mounting bracket and the engine case, the rear mounting bracket has an aluminum spacer (not shown in photo) behind it in order to get proper alignment of the rearset when bolted to the engine case. apply lithium calcium grease to the threads and torque these 3 bolts to 36 n-m



the rearset main bolt (24mm, hex, aluminum) goes in the swingarm pivot shaft. also coat with lithium calcium grease and torque this sucker to 55 n-m


then connect the gear lever linkages

to set my monster apart from the rest of the 796's here, i had a spare seat cowl modded (out of fiberglass) for the cafe racer look. i drew inspiration from MonsterMash31 who made a similar cafe racer cowl. except my seat cowl's "hump" is narrower, where it started outside the edge of the flat portion of the cowl

after prepping, i then had the cowl taken to the decal and vinyl shop where racing stripes were also added. i opted for vinyl wrap instead of paint because it is just a 30-minute to 1 hour job.
