Sporcket and chain replacement

I am getting my new chain friday and will be ordering and receiving my sprocket in a week or two but i need some help to install it. I was wondering if anyone had the tools i need to install it ? I do all my own work when it comes to bikes but i dont have the tools to break the chain. Honda qouted me 150.00 to install it but i told them it would be cheaper to buy the tools and do it my self

You may want to check the tool price. Its about 100.00. The socket for the large nut can be borrowed from autozone. Get more quotes. Its a real PITA. I wouldnt pay 150, but I would pay 100 to do the work. Breaking the chain and pressing the new link sucks in itself. Your gonna be nervous that the length is right. You dont wanna cut it too short.

houston stunter,you need to know the size of the chain ur getin if its a 520 or 25,make sure the sproket is the same size as well as your front one, then u need a soket to fit the sproket nuts, n a long wrachet, then check if its a surclip or ribet master link if you do all the work you should know what u need

If you have a rivot type chain, you need to grind off the faster link, use a chain link puller from any tool store/cycle gear to pull the link off.

Install the new chain/sprocket then press the link on and mushroom the rivots of the masterlink.

If you're unsure, its an expensive mistake. I'd recommend visiting one of the sponsor's or youtubing until you're comfortable lol

Sounds like you only need help with the chain. I would guess that to be less than an hour of labor. Contact a sponsor for sure.

Nice

Dude asks for HELP, and we tell him about his project - or to go to sponsors - etc. Nice.

Ride over to my place, pull into my garage, we'll change it out. I have the right tools. Just bring the parts. I will charge you one beer.

I'm not that close to you - I live NE beltway 8. Email me direct for directions. nchristie(at)alum.rpi.edu. Do NOT PM ME through the site - I only get on here about once a week or so.

We can do it some night after work, OR Saturday or Sunday early morning - as in, you be here before 8 AM.

Of course, if you get a better offer, take it.

Neil

also need to make sure and get the right length chain. 43 to 48 is a pretty good increase. Make sure the new chain is long enough.

edit: nvm, sounds like you already checked.

I was trying to help by giving a cheaper option. A local shop would be cheaper.

As a motorcycle mechanic, aren't you entitled to have a chain breaker? There $20.....

Chain and sprocket should be cake for you, but I'll do it for 2 hours of ink
