Quote: FD against the paralever tube
Yes, that's the one
Quote: I presume that you meant gear oil, not engine oil, in the drive
Nope, at this stage, I only had some Castrol high performance full synthetic engine oil with me
It is better than nothing and worked well enough.
there is another indication that something was wrong, the reartyre, as being already semi worn off when I started the journey, was much more worn off on the side facing the FD.
Now I wonder if this was in conjunction with the bearing failure or not. Of course it is very difficult to comment on the issue when you don't see the bike but I don't mind some long distance input, otherwise I wouldn't post it here
As far as I can recall, I was riding for at least 600km with a faulty wheelbearing before breaking down completely (craaaaaraaaraaraarrrr)
Would this distance together with a very rough road surface possibly be responsible for the uneaven wear of the tyre?
Now I do have a new tyre on the bike and got new spares sent to me (ready again)
If I drive through a small piece of wet road and then check the wet stripe on the tyre, if it is in the middle then things should be right, I presume?
Oh, and yes, the whole trip is 3660km, it was easy enough to ride 1200km per day in daylight, just when the night falls, the wildlife becomes a real danger to cars and specially bikes. No one drives with a bike, almost no one
just muuuuch slower.
Thanx rdwalker for your input
