Changing the original chain at 13,800 miles. Thought my sprockets were good. Not sure now after breaking the chain. What do you guys think? Don't want to wear out my new DID sooner than later. 20170208_201620.jpg 20170208_202401.jpg 20170208_202451.jpg 20170208_202422.jpg

Look at this pin I drove out. Rust on the inside. I use Maxima Chain Wax. Just put on my Auto Oiler.

You're kidding right?
Thought I did... but it is my first time and I just wanted to be sure so I decided to ask all of you with your vast knowledge!

Okay will do. Now I will have to search for which ones. What are your preferences?

I was looking at JT Sprockets just now after looking at Sunstar. They said 17 front 44 back stock. My rear has a 45 stamped on it? They had a rubber cushion front also.

Glad to see there now is an aftermarket option for a rubber cushioned front sprocket. I would alway have to go with an aftermarket rear and then pay a Honda dealership for a stock front.

Sunstar, JT, I've used both on the rear and have no preference. And I do change both sprockets with every new chain.

I guess you now know to replace the sprockets now. When you get your new sprockets then you can compare the shape of the roller pocket against used and know why you need to replace. An oiler isn't going to do a whole lot imo. The rusted pin means the O rings on the chain are worn and have failed and let water in. At that point the chain needs replaced. Keeping grit off the chain is more important than soaking it with oil which collects grit which wears the O rings. The chains are internally lubed and the O rings job is to just to keep water out. These sprockets look interesting. Quiet sprockets. I may just buy a pair next time or sooner.

USA bikes came with 17-45 the rest of the world was 17-44. Take your pick.

Sorry the chart didn't transfer over exactly but you should be able to figure it out.

Supersprox dude. Than you won't have to worry about your chain, just some lube now and than
That's right. I knew someone had said they had an awesome sprocket going the miles. Just forgot who said it and I hadn't searched long enough. How many miles on yours now?

It's obvious that you have not met "deadman" yet! He'll be along any minute and set you straight on chain maintenance.


:popcorn:

Maybe you noticed that "I" did not say you were wrong.

Have a "few" bikes and I always buy Supersprox for the rear whenever I change out. Lightweight and long lasting. Look great too!

Lol Tigre, I thought of Deadman's post immediately when I read Rollie's comment
