I put the clip on's and rear sets on about 3K miles ago, and this showed up a few hundred ago... harshness is mostly in the rear sets... (like i said it would make my feet go numb through riding boots)
I did put the cover back on... the chain looked great (as did the gears) but has about 3/8" of play in the middle, seemed like a fair amount to me? (service manual didn't list a service limit on this part?)
also the clutch outer has about 1/4" of float all around, but i guessing that's normal to help reduce abuse from the drive train...?
as per your advice, im looking into the CCT, do you know of anyway to check it without having a spare on hand? (free spring length, a loose part, etc...) Is it possible if its worn out enough ill feel it through a wider rev range? I may just pick one up at this rate... only 18K miles... but 8 years....
Again, Much thanks for all the advice!
the CCT does cause any vibrations to those parts unless its wobbling the bike, hahaha,
Id say if those are aftermarket and you dont have weights in your clip ons it took you that 100 miles to develop the strain on your joints, it takes time to develop sensitivities to it,
do this, wear a double pair of socks and some inner gloves something to cushion you,
grip the tank more with your legs and put easy pressure on your hands,
as for your feet you should be on the balls of your feet almost gripping with your toes, if you are on a long ride, move your foot out every once in a while,
or get heavy weights bar ends put the stocks all back on,
the CCT would make a metal whirring sound like 2 metal circles spinning within each other, around 4-6K its louder than anything but you wont feel any sort of vibes from it, at least I havent
