GOODIES! from motmummy.com!

hey guys this is my first vendor review because im extremely happy with my experience with the motomummy.com staff. but first the goods!



driven front sprocket (-1)
driven rear sprocket (+2)
driven sprocket nuts red
pro-grip wheel tape, reflective red
and finally EK 520MVX red chain

it was time for me to do some upgrading so i researched and finally pulled the trigger on motomummy. they had everything i was looking for except the STM red engine oil filler cap. but all the other stores including motorcycle-superstore did not have the pro-grip tape for some reason (i guess its on backorder) anywho motomummy had it and im glad they did.

my original order had the red RK chain and that is what i purchased... well as soon as i ordered i had left my house, and not even 10 minutes later i got a phone call from a strange number, so i answer and its corey from motomummy letting me know that the RK red chain get returned most of the time because it almost looks pink and would i like to change my order to the EK chain!! and of course i did. he changes the order and lets me know that he'll get it shipped out that day!

overall i am extremely pleased with the entire experience and would recommend them over and over.

and props to corey for being awesome at his job!

order was placed 3/31/2012 11:45 am
order was received 4/2/2012 4:15 pm

Glad to hear you had a good experience. I'll have to give them a look when I get my tank grips.

It looks very tempting to do some of this myself, not now, but when my chain and sprockets show wear. Just how hard is it to use a chain breaker? I do not have a chain breaker nor used one before.

Also, do you align your wheels once you replace the chain? Or, is it enough just to align the rear tire alone? What I normally do is to make sure that the distance between the swing arm center and the rear axle is the same on both sides.

TIA

chain breaker is super easy to use. right now you can get one for 30$ + shipping from cyclegear.com and when it comes to aligning you just throw it back on there. the only real adjusting you do is torquing the bolts to spec and adjusting your chain slack.

This brings up an interesting question..

How do you keep anodized metals from fading? I have been doing some research and so far the only thing I have found is Everbrite. I'm super interested in this stuff because my theme is going to require a lot of anodized red, which has a tendency to fade to pink.

Anyone ever tried everbrite? Anyone know another, maybe better, way to keep the anodized aluminum stuff from fading? I realize that, on something moving several tens of thousand times a minute like a chain, this may not work, but what about oil caps and the like?

never heard of it, would be interesting to see two example though. one without the coating and one with over a period of time.

I've never seen powder coating fade quite that much though. I suppose it could be due to something other than sunlight?

I may try this stuff out on my lever adjusters. See if it really restores like it should.

Late reply, but...There are many ways to keep it from fading but it comes down to the quality of the anodizing chemicals, how many things were dipped in before your parts, the coating they put on it afterwards, prepping of the metal prior to anodizing, etc. Lots of factors.

The thing to remember if you're going to do a lot of red is that anodizing isn't like paint with a color code. Every batch will be a slightly different shade so just a heads up as you order stuff. Rarely will one manufacturers shade match another and it even varies with the same brand depending on what batch it was dipped in.
