Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

Change of chain and sprockets

Post by Guest on Wed 01 Oct 2014, 12:24 pm

Hi again,

As said here a pic of the front sprocket.
Looks like previous owner decided to install it the other way round so as to use both sides of the teeth... mmmm.

Time for a change?

That's very 'enterprising' of the previous owner!

I don't think it will do your chain or sprockets any good - the chain and sprockets will have worn with the front sprocket the 'other' way round - turning it over will just make the chain wear the 'other' side of the sprocket 'holes'.

They may have done it because it was slipping, but it doesn't look like it was *that* bad.

If it was my bike I wouldn't do anything about it until:

a) the chain was worn upto its limit

or

b) it starts to slip on the sprockets
