Photojourney of changing chain and sprockets

  1. The bad Rad, needing some lovin':



    After much elbow grease:

    This didn't turn out nearly as well as I had hoped, but it's my front sprocket. The dark blob is the sprocket, check out the ocean-teeth (get it? Wavy like an ocean? Ok, I'll stop now):

    And we're done!

    Note the Roadcrafter strategically thrown on the driveway. ;)
  2. Looks like fun. I like the car in the first pic. Gotta get mine back together.

  3. ocean wave teeth? sharktoothing is what they call it man! crackup:

    sharks live in the ocean...
  5. I had a wickedly hooked rear sprocket... it was aluminum on a GSXR 750, what do you expect? =P Nice feeling to have a solid drivetrain, isn't it? I just wish there was a way to keep that front sprocket area from getting so nasty.
  6. I had 32k miles on my set of sprockets before I replaced and neither were sharktoothing, not one bit. Did it just cause I got some oem replacements for free and I was changing out the chain too.

    Get a Kawi...sprockets last forever beeyoootchhh!
  7. I've had to change chains and sprokets 3 times in 12,000 miles on my Kawi, I guess it's how good you are to them :shock:
