sprocket change

Postby kylezx10 » Wed Jul 02, 2014 1:13 am

I would imagine I need the chain adjuster & what size nut holds it on. I'm a pretty descent mechanic just need a little heads up

A bit more info mate... front or rear sprocket? And yes any sprocket change needs chain adjusted.
On the 1290 piece of piss to do.

Front sprocket doesn't need the chain split... see the "other" forum...! makes the bike miles more rideable...

(dunno why we've got two forums for the same bike ?)

Disappointing yet again.

Loosened off my wheel the other day and adjusted it right forward to get chain off and change sprocket and as I did loads of water ran out of swing arm, not been out in rain for a while so looks like it is holding water in there somehow, not good for the bike in the long run, just going to take a while to work out how to stop it

I don't know about the older Superdukes, but we had to drill holes in the bottom of the SMT's swingarms to let the water out :roll:
They didn't have sexy modern SSSA's tho....
Glass half full Pikey; your rear end may be full of water, but it doesn't wobble.

It's the new fad now, water cooling!

As ferret mentioned we will be drilling holes in the swingarm again.... :roll:

Where did the water come out, in between the hub and the swingarm?

Also wonder where it gets in??? :shock: Another mystery....

Yeah looks like I came from between hub and swing arm, funny thing was it only came out as the wheel moved all the way forward, loosened it and moved a bit, tried to remove chain, not enough, so move it again all the way forward and all of a sudden the water runs out
