New bits needed (for the bike, dummy)

Discussion in 'Bling and Appearance' started by hornet, Jan 5, 2006.

  1. I'm in the market immediately for a new chain and two new sprockets for the mighty Hornet.

    I can shop around the Net, of course, but does any Netrider in the bike trade wish to part me from my hard-earned shekels?

    Price to include freight to Wollongong, and yes, I can fit it myself.
  2. Are they hard to fit them by yourself?
  3. Nope. Drop the back wheel off, remove the countershaft cover, remove the countershaft sprocket and replace (if you're going to, that is) pass the chain over the countershaft sprocket and then replace the back wheel after passing the chain over its sprocket. (Refit the countershaft cover, of course!)

    Adjust the tension as normal.
  4. Well there's always the bit where you have to cut the chain down to the right length and plonk it back together... That's pretty fiddly and you don't want to bugger it up.
