Adjusted the chain. (Since the dealership installed an 18T countershaft sprocket only a few hundred miles ago and did not replace the chain, I don't really think it should have gotten so loose, but it was clanging on the chain guard and not far from jumping off.)
The last time I used the Liquid Wrench Chain Lube
I wouldn't use the Chain lube in the other cables either.Who recommended it?Bare
Then I switched to Dri Slide which I'm using now and it works well.
You new owners of the C5's may not know that you have to remove the entire fork legs to do this simple task. A major undertaking to say the least.
I wonder if it's possible to drill & tap a drain hole in an appropriate place on the C5 lower fork leg to make fork oil changes easier... Gonna look deeper into this.
I use either Dri-Slide or Tri-Flow on cables exclusively; have done for eons. Both will give superior service.
Scott - you should be asleep at this time on a Sunday morning!Does the B5 have the same fork as the C5, i.e. removal required to change the oil?
Unfortunately, yes Matt, for the B5, we have to remove the fork legs. If you open the top chrome screw, you'll have a dead-end. At least on my 2011 B5 it is. Have a look on yours. I was under the impression that the B5's frame being the same as the older 350 models, it will have a nice spot to re-fill from the top, but nope, not anymore.
