So it gets trapped in the filter but how do you know it hasn't circulated around the engine before it got to the magnetic plug
...
Did you try saying that out loud before you posted it or do you just click "Post reply" without looking?
Any particular reason you have to be insulting? Did that make you feel better about yourself This is a place to exchange information and ideas about the Vstrom.

I was exchanging information, you chose to ignore it.
You responded with something worthy of an anti-vaxxer and got called on it.
Now you're crying because I didn't pander to your ego.
Not my problem.

No.....chains don't stretch, but they and sprockets do wear down.
I seem to increase chain life by changing the countershaft sprocket around 14-16000 miles. It'll wear faster than the rear sprocket simply because of it's size, as many of us know. My $.02 worth.

It always amazes me how people get so caught up in semantics.

Most of us know chain dont actually stretch but rather wear. However chains appear to stretch.

Whatever the actual cause behind it the chains get longer as if they have stretched and you have to do the appropriate adjustments or replace as needed.
