Try assembling the fork with the bottom damper rod bolt very loose screw the top hand tight-than tighten the bottom bolt-might align everything with spring pressure on the damper rod

Well if they're no good for Steve I'd be happy to take them off your hands Samsgrandad  :002:

They would be my last attempt at trying to sort out the screen  :155:
As a reference I'm about 6' or 1.83 meters I have the stock brackets on my 2019 in the top position and using my Chinese copy of the Bruudt with the shield in the bottom position in the copy brackets the wind goes right over my head raising the shield higher pass the half way mark makes the wind worst-I think the spacing out of the shield with the Bruudt brackets makes a different because the total difference raised is only about 30mm

Can't seem to find a 16T sprocket anywhere, so I guess I'll look for a 38T rear.  Has anyone gone down three in the back with the stock 15T front?  Wondering if there's enough adjustment or if I'll need to remove a chain link, which would be fine.  If the wheel base is going to change, I wouldn't want it to get shorter.

JT sprockets makes a 41,40,and 36 tooth rear.  36T would shift my gearing over 12%.  Seems like a lot.  Wonder how that would affect the chain guides.
According to JT Sprockets the front number is JTF1381RB16 is that the number your trying to find if so in stock Amazon

so i bought the bike for 300 with a bad battery and a flat rear tire and after i got those fixed i was riding then the temp light came on so i grabbed what i thought was a gallon of coolant from my jeep but turned out to be water cuz i was having cooling problems with my jeep and so i filled it up with the water and told myself to grab the coolant from my jeep which is at my work but i kept forgetting to do so
You need to find the the cause of the over heating before you ride it after the fix because adding water is not going to cause the over heating by it self it with a pressurised system -could be something like a clogged radiator-stuck thermostat or a water pump not working st all

i was replacing my blown head gasket and gotta remove the cams to get to the head bolts
You blew a head gasket-first time I have heard of a 500X with that problem-could you explain --what happened--

Go to Gear Commander. com all gearing info is there

I don't have a service manual and was wondering what torque i should use on the camshaft bracket bolts. Anybody with a service manual could give an inquiry would be greatly appreciated.
Out of curiosity why are you removing the cams

Life's to short to worry about other people that don't get it -just ignore them That's what I do

US bikes have a chart either in the owners manual or shop manual showing hose routing- just make sure the tank is   vented-sounds like you did it right-In the pass I have removed a few either for looks or for funny behaviour--BMW looks--Kawasaki 650 Versy's that thing would whistle like the kettle was boiling-had to go
