WEll my bike has just passed 800 miles tonight, but my slack adjuster is set right at half way on the marker lines.
Checking in the Ducati Performance catalog, their sprockets are called Light alloy rear sprockets that go up to 41 teeth for a 520 pitch chain.
So just to clarify Critter, you have the Afam steel 520 pitch 43 tooth correct?
With mine set up at 39t right now, anything below about 25 mph I have to be in first gear, and it is down right boggy untill I get up to above about 10mph. Since I still have low miles, I usually run 1st gear up to about 25 mph, then second gear will get me to 55 before hitting 6k RPM. Ideally, what I am looking for is being able to putter around a neighborhood / campus at around 15-20 mph without either having 1st gear sound like its wound out, or spitting and putter in 2nd gear becuase my RPMs are below 3k.
But you are right Critter, first thing is to get a rear stand. I think im gonna order the handy stands that you have, seems like a good deal.
I have never seen any one else mention it either, but I just dont trust the kickstand on my SS. It seems awefully flimsy for such a bike /shrug Maybe im just used to my old honda.
