Back sprocket and chain
« on: July 18, 2017, 02:27:34 AM »
Hi guys
I want to chance my back sprocket and chain to the gold aftermarket products, now I have seen a few online, but I am extremely dumb when it comes to mechanics and anything related.
So basically any recommendations  on chains will be great and sprockets although I already have a sprocket in mind. link underneath

Also how many links should be in the chain is it 128?

Thanks in advance and safe riding

JJ

it is indeed 128 links
I cant remember off hand what the pitch is
DID is the way to go but change the front sprocket as well whilst you are at it

You could allways go for a renthal conversion which will be more costly in the short term but make future changes cheaper
You tell me how fast I was going Officer !

Just because some chains are gold in colour doesn't make e'm any good!!.

You want DID ZVM and don't let anyone fob you off with anything else just because they don't stock it.

I think DID would always be my choice - there is little/no saving in going for anything else.

It's not the DID it's the ZVM that's the important part plenty of cheaper DID options,I have a lot to do with the bike trade always difficult trying to keep a straight face when some pillock has been trying to penny pinch and ended up with a big F off hole in the crankcase and it's all doom and gloom because they then realise they could have saved e'm selves all that hassle for 30/40 quid.
