Did it the way you suggested, and it worked just right - THANK YOU!

Swingarm going in for Powder Coating this week. I think I finally found a good and reasonably priced place. Also found a cheap and good metal stripping place.

Trying to do some home anodizing today on the kickstand - I'll post some pictures later if it works out all right. It didn't last night, but I think my acid mix hadn't yet dissolved enough.

A stupid question - can I reuse my chain after I take it off, if I remove it at the master link? It's in great shape, but obviously it needs to be removed to do the PC work.

Yes, you can replace the master link.

When installing I use a micrometer. Read ahead of link and behind the link on the outside of the chain. (Not the inside)

Compress your master link until it reads close to the same as the outer links meausured from above. Last is to compress the master link pins.

This is the proper way to avoid installing the ML to tight causing binding in the chain.

What Rotors do you guys use on the front end? Mine are at about 4mm right now, and they say minimum thickness is 3.6mm - what did they start out at? What offset should I be looking for? The same as an S2R 1k?

TIA.

The steel carrier rotors are 4mm and the Alu carrier ones are 5mm. I'm running aftermarket 5mm w/TPO full floating buttons.

Thanks - Iron or SS? Or CMC

10mm Offset is normal, right?

Working on the rear end this weekend. Pulled a lot of parts off including the swingarm, which I'll be getting powder coated this week. More Ti on the way, 999s front calipers and 848 EVO rear shock coming too. Otherwise, I'm getting some new cleaning angles in - lot's of grease and dirt built up over the past ten years!

Thanks particularly to TT and bshinn for the instruction as I've been going through this project. In mid July when I bought this moto, I didn't even know how to take off the back wheel - now three and a half months later I feel totally comfortable stripping the bike to the frame.

Here's a photo with the rear end stripped down.

10mm is correct, and they're stainless, I'm not made out of cash.

Picked up the tank from xpress metal cleaning today - looking great. JB weld is out too. Next step is to have the dents repaired, then Nickel plated and pressure tested.
