front sprocket wear
« on: Oct 20, 2020, 09:37 PM »
Well after putting on the lowering link
I knew the chain would become a little tighter so at the weekend I replaced the front sprocket that I had ordered a few weeks ago and redone the chain tension
The nut on the front sprocket had been loose so I tightened it up when I replaced the chain and ordered the sprocket

Needless to say there is some considerable wear on the output shaft due to the sprocket being loose



As you can see from the wear on the inside of the old sprocket something to check when you have that cover off to clean the chain

Hey Wal about 43000 now


Think it was that the nut was loose that did the damage
Still it felt ok when I put on the new sprocket it did not feel sloppy  strange enough now that I look at it with my glasses on :-)

For piece of mind, if you want to replace the output shaft, you do NOT need to take the engine out and split the crank case as the gear box is a cassette box that comes out the side very easily 👍👍
