thanks, Mik. unfortnately with the monster's wide handlebar, i can hardly keep up with the scooters and mopeds (we call them "underbones" here) while filtering through manila's monstrous traffic... especially now the monsoon is here. so a couple of weeks ago, got myself a 2014 cb400 revo. with its narrower handlebar, the cb400 is better suited for traversing traffic and is now my daily driver :smile

i've got the superlite quickchange sprocket system (15T/42T) and a DID gold x-ring chain for quite sometime now. i just can't get myself to mounting them. largely because it involves cutting and riveting the chain. while i'm competent enough for the job and have the proper tools for it, chain work is my least favorite thing to do

I changed my bar to a LSL X01. a touch narrower than factory but also a slightly different angle. I know what you mean when trying to split lanes, Same in Saigon since most vehicles don't stay in their lanes. I did see a Hyper Motard with CRG style bar end mirrors have to fold them in when trying to split lanes then fold back out. I'm more worried about scratching my bike and the carbon bar and ducabike brake lever guard than the cars and taxis.

The single swingarm i got came with a brake caliper so i just used it. But i compared the two and found them interchangeable

You seem to be technically very savvy doing this yourself. I need some help if you can please. I have a Monster 795 since 2014 and till date have done near 28,000km. As per the service book I have changed the timing belts, plugs, chain and sprockets, change brake pads before 20,000km. I am on my second set of tires. I haven't done a tappet adjustment as recommended. Lately, and very occasionally my idle suddenly becomes at 2000rpm. If I blip the throttle a few times this goes away and idle settles down to normal. I want your advise.. do these after market cleaning additives help and clearing
the jets ect? If so, maybe I need not open the throttle bodies for cleaning. Kindly let me know

Hi navrose. Sorry, I dont want to offer suggestions for DIY solutions as i haven't experienced those problems and no reason for me to research and look into them yet. Im still trying to learn as much as i can when it comes to trouble shooting as the mech failures come. Your particular problem may be caused by a host of different factors like dirty jets and TBs or contaminated fuel or ecu glitch, etc. or any combination of those

Very interested to learn about the rear wheel. Most of the SSS conversions always changed to the 796 rear wheel. Did you do anything for you to install the old one? I have a 2009 696 and I'm not sure if we're exactly the same rear wheel. Thanks!

the original 696 rear wheel won't do as it was designed for a dual swingarm. I used an older model 916 3-spoke wheel for single sided swingarm...
