New chain is on and I've had a chance to put ~50 miles on it over the weekend and back and forth to work. Runs great, idle is smooth, tons of torque... I think I can call this one solved. I'll ride...

I was messing with the chain last night, and now I have another question. My chain adjuster eccentric only rotates about 1/8 of a turn before it seems to hit a stop both directions. This isn't enough...

I'll be riding down from KC again this year (4th time) to volunteer as a track marshal. Great way to be track side and actually get your hands on the bikes. Marquez crashed in my corner last year...
