    Chain Adjustment/Replacement

    IMG00842-20110523-0701.jpg

    I went on my first trip with Bags and it seems I streched my chain some. And so my question is do I have enough room to tighten her up one more time? Or is it a MUST to replace at the "Replace Chain" line.

    OR, do I have the whole 1/2in or so in the "Replace Chain" Zone..


    Whats the Best Practice?


    Thanks

    Re: Chain Adjustment/Replacement

    Still have a bit of adjustment left,
    Go again if chain is in good condition,
    how do the links look ?

    Re: Chain Adjustment/Replacement

    Took it to get adjusted and they said my chain had a low spot and it couldnt be adjusted. So I had them throw on a new chain and it only went to dead center of the blue area. WTH???? Shouldnt it be in the "new Chain" area ??

    Re: Chain Adjustment/Replacement

    you donīt have to worry too long when your chain is in itīs last breaths.
    the longer the chain gets the more it eats your sprocket.
    the last 5mm i order the new chain normally and i do have to install it within weeks.

    didnīt they put on new sprockets too?

    Re: Chain Adjustment/Replacement

    That's a decent chain at a decent price man!
    You should get much much more than 10k out of it! Just keep it clean and lubed..
    Come to think of it, have you ever considered a scott/pro-oiler?

    Re: Chain Adjustment/Replacement

    You may find you have an 18tooth front sprocket. This is a common change to correct the speedo and drop the revs a little.

    My chains never seem to stretch much. I would worry more about both sides being even in length.

    Re: Chain Adjustment/Replacement

    Hey guys looking for advice. Went to adjust my chain yesterday. As I rotated the wheel the slack on the chain varied from loose at one point to tight on another. The manual suggested a possible seized link .. but I gave the chain a good cleaning and lube as well. Is something possibly out of round ?

    Re: Chain Adjustment/Replacement

    Your chain is partial worn. Rust, grinded by dirt, whatever... replace it.
