Warning - chain length
« on: July 15, 2017, 10:42:44 PM »
Hi all, just beware if you are planning to change ( or get a non BMW dealer to change ) your chain and sprockets. It appears that a few of the aftermarket suppliers have the wrong chain length in there catalogues (118 links vs the correct 128). My dealer ordered me a Renthal set from B&C express and they showed me the incorrect listing. They also checked another of their suppliers who also had the incorrect 118 link chain listed.

Yep so true everyone saying 118 links but it has 128.
I got a DID Gold Xring chain and JT sprockets for £98 inc postage from Hunters Motorcycles in Newcastle.

Great service at a great price. Give them a call on 01912618592

I'll leave it to the dealer to sort out. They were good enough to volunteer to fit new tyres and chain / sprockets as part of the deal. It was already the cheapest SE on the net so I was amazed at the deal. They also knocked another £200 off as the pannier rails were missing (which I replaced at far less cost from a kind gentle on this forum). Also did me a lifetime warranty and 4 year service plan for £650. I'm well chuffed  😀

Hi, it's offered by CMC when u buy from them. Underwritten by themselves not a 3rd party insurer with only consumables excluded. Due to a previous bad experience with BMW main dealer I made a point of confirming EDA, switchgear etc are covered  The only condition is that CMC must service the bike, but like I said at £650 for 4 services it's a bargain. My first service with them will be the  18k which BMW quoted me around £700 for alone. They have an fully trained ex BMW tech in their workshop.
