Hehe I read it somehow on a french forum, this oil costs even half what the 80W90 did
and smells not as bad also, this is really better in every way !

I'm definitely going to be trying it out. I'm pretty slack with how often I lube my chain so something a little heavier duty should suit me well.

Like the video says. The front sprocket is a third smaller than the rear, so works 3 times as hard and wears out 3 times quicker. 12 for a new front every 8000 miles, or a complete kit every 24000 miles with the risk of a front tooth breaking off before you get chance to see how bad it is.

I'm getting one of these to be able to watch the sprocket aging easily, and avoid issues.

That should help with cleaning the crap off the front. Mine was chock full of grease and hair. Think the previous owner had horses.

Yeah mine looked like a coal mine, lots of cleaning !
But no hair there, I sure hope the guy had horses... Or he might have liked his Tiger a bit too much  :156:.

Better put a stainless steel nut on otherwise it will look embarrassingly rusty.

Good thinking, I have no clue what the dealer used, so we'll see !
