Given that Steve T lives in Scotland, I don't think we can draw anything but ethnologicall information from his claim that he kept the chain because he had paid for it :).

Just happen to have settled this far north  :152:. But there is a grain of truth in what you imply - after over 30 years north of the wall the art of not paying too much or making things last for as long as possible does tend to seep into your bones  :008:

Nothing wrong with frugal, and frugal certainly doesn't preclude being generous.

My Hyosung dealer replaced my GT650 chain, but told me the sprockets were fine and didn't need changing - I think it's easy to just "do what everyone else says you should do" and always change chain and sprockets at the same time, but then I'm a frugal Scot!!

Thanks for the good conversations everyone.  One more question for now.

Any recommendations for a speedo corrector?  I stumbled upon this https://www.sportbiketrackgear.com/healtech-honda-cb500x-13-15-speedohealer-v4/, but I'm on a 2019.  I'm unsure if that matters or if this healtech unit is still plug n play for my year model. 

I'd rather not have to use my cellphone's gps/coherent app to show my speed in real time and for me it lags in comparison to the bike's cluster gauge's speedo.
From what I know there are two different one's on the market-I have used both over the years both worked the same-I do like the Speedohealer better because it is incased in a plastic box the USA made one is not and must be warped in something
It's not a big motorcycle just a groovy little motorbike

Eleven sisters!  Twelve girls!  Your Great Grandfather is a saint!!  I have one daughter who is an absolute blessing, but nearly the death of me raising her.

Apparently the brother left home at 16, joined the navy and was never seen again  :008:
