Chain & Sprocket..

Like the supersonic spy jet from which it got its name, the Super Blackbird delivers an afterburner kick of truly earth-shattering performance that simply takes your breath away.

Chain & Sprocket..

I replaced the chain & sprocket on the bike this morning.

The job was going so well until I knocked the clutch release cylinder and lost a load of clutch fluid.. :shock: :wink: (see the patch of hydraulic oil on the ground.. )

Still, it was an opportunity to flush and replace the clutch and brake fluids while I was at it.. :lol:

The good deal is why I bought the bird.. :wink:

I have a theory.. that he (the dealer) sold me the Bird at pretty much what he gave for it, in order to take my 600F in PX.

The Bird had been in the showroom for quite a while, being a model that's not as popular as the supersports, and I think the dealer would shift the 600F quicker and for more of a profit than the Bird.. :wink:

I've talked to Pete at Sid Moram's before about wanting a Bird, and I guess I was in the right place at the right time, and he knew that the right offer would have the Bird out of the showroom that day.. and he was right! 8) :lol:

Why you not get a gold back sprocket or a silver (normal) chain :dunno:
