Worn 7 year old tire no longer on the front. I now have matching Bridgestone S20 Evos front and rear. The front wheel spins pretty good without the brake caliper on it, maybe time for some brake return springs?

I did find a source for taller than 51T rear sprockets for my CBR 250R. They offer blanks as well. Next time I need a chain I will probably go for a 49T rear, or even taller. I did finally take the plunge and buy some paraffin wax and equipment for waxing chains. I put the pot of wax into a larger pot of water and heated that over a burner to avoid getting too hot. Who needs wax heaters? So, now that I am using wax, my chain should stay much cleaner for longer, and stay better lubricated too. That chain replacement may not be needed for a while.

Front fender from an MC14 ordered on a Japanese auction site. Hopefully will get it within a month.
