Chain and sprocket question.

Discussion in 'Bling and Appearance' started by Maximus, Jul 3, 2007.

  1. hey guys,just a quick question. I'm riding a cbf250. seem to be readjusting the chain every few hundred k's lately... a bit odd. the bike's done only 14500km and been regularly serviced and i take care of the chain myself by lubing it and stuff. but it seems to be getting too lose to quick if you asked me. is it the time for a replacement of the both???
    any help appreciated. yeah, i commute. motobike is my only way of transport. got no car. so everything i do is on the bike.

  2. Once worn out they stretch quickly, check that when you adjust it, the wheel is tight and the adjusting bolts are tight, it may not be stretching, just the rear wheel could be moving forward.
  3. Is it possible that the chain is not stretching and the wheels is moving? Are you doing it up tight enough?
