But even the chain tensioner tightness specs are in millimeters.

Learning what I have in the past few years as far as this metric stuff, I may have looked into a different head. I do love the job it does though.

Either that or I need to just be more diligent at a maintenance schedule and routinely replace things on it. Broke a chain on it this evening. Luckily we did have a spare on hand.
That is interesting cause them headers are made not too far to the east of ya in the same town my wife went to school.

A chain is a pretty minimal break down unless its like a daily occurrence.

Unbelievable they use metric chain, do they even use metric bolts?

God Bless America
