  1. Well technically I did the work yesterday but tested it today. Installed the slipper clutch in my 2016. The job was really pretty easy. Only challenge was removing the dimples on the nut before breaking it loose. This is a great addition for me. I have old and tired hands the reduction in clutch lever pull is fantastic. I also feel like the friction zone on the clutch level is longer and smoother. I banged it down from 4th gear at about 50 into second gear and the rear wheel behaved itself great. Love this upgrade!
  2. Last week, I decided to put a set of RS III on since they had such a good rebate. I have ~6000 miles on the bike and the rear OEM tires likely would have last another 500 to 1000 miles. (Fronts would have lasted a lot longer but wanted matched set.) One thing I noticed about the RS III is that in the rear tire in the deepest tread you can actually see the cords. Has anyone else noticed that? I have ridden about 200 miles on the new tires and really like them, but have not pushed them on any canyon runs yet. Definitely looking forward to it.
  3. Hi all, I have been reading through this thread and thinking about slack. My chain has tight and loose areas. I can measure as tight as 0.5" and loose as 1.25" by rotating the rear wheel 1/8 to 1/4 turns. My bike is just one year out of the shop and has 5,000 miles on it. I have not ridden too hard. I have kept it clean and oiled its whole life, no visible defects are seen. This seems like a lot of variability. MY guess is the rear sprocket is out of round or installed incorrectly, off center. Having good and bad sections in the chain does not make any sense to me since you measure the slack with the bike in neutral so both front and rear sprockets can turn freely. Would be interested in other's thoughts.
  4. As stated above There have been other threads about an error code 019 that have similar symptoms to what you are describing. If I remember correctly the solution/problem was the key was not turned fully in the ignition. I had the error 19 just twice and turning it off and on solved it for me.
