I wish the Tripple Black was available last year when I bought mine, settled for an Ocean Blue though....have since fitted a lot of Ilmberger Carbon parts, so she's more black than blue now.. :028:

are you talking about a 'clip' style link as opposed to a 'rivet' style link? If so, IMHO on a bike that puts out this much power I do not think so, a 'rivet' style master link is the way to go,.

+1..!! Clips can be dislodged sometimes, very rare but has been known to happen.

Just changed my chain to a DID and re-fitted 42 rear sprocket and had to remove 2 links, rivet link was supplied with the chain....easy to do with the right tool.

I love it.  So much so that I've got one   :001:
Derek.  Have you seen one in the flesh?  They are a really good looking bike.
But beauty is in the eye of the beholder  as they say.  I used to have a Crosstourer..what would  I know?  :012:

The Black is really great looking, esp with the gold forks. 

I sold a black bike to get an XR, so I'm leaning toward the Ocean Blue....plus the OB and MS colors are pretty unique; there are a fair number of black bikes out there from various manufacturers.

I love it and seriously considering trading in my R for one. Have a test ride booked on an XR and F850GS next week. The GS is just to keep sensible me happy, can’t see me going for anything other than a new R or XR!

Master link (spring link) to join the chain after fitting a new chain - is this a good idea, or not?  :190:

Great bike, but not my choice of color.
