Lend a hand por favor!

Getting new chain and sprocket soon, seems one or both of my sprockets are warped Hopefully its not the shaft to the front sprocket or I'm in trouble. Anyway I don't have a breaker or anything like that so I'm enlisting help with the swap! 6 pack of your favorite on me!

yes and yes but.... i will be going out of town starting on sunday... I thought you needed it sooner... Wifey will be home though. She technically did all the work when we replaced the chain and sprockets on her bike. So she can help. Just make sure you tighten up everything after her. she has a history of stuff falling off due to it not being tight enough.

no. I have a chain breaker and torque wrench. Those are the two main tools we used to do mirandas.

Hmmm be careful, i may steal your wifey
Yea I've never done chain or sprockets so it'll be an adventure for me at least, my biggest concern is re-alignment of the rear wheel. it'd be really cool if y'all had a spoke wrench too. Yea I'll order friday parts probably won't be in until mid week, I'll let you know.

I know that when I did the front spoket on my 05 SV it was held on with red lock tite from the factory so if the nut isn't coming off; use a little heat. My
R6 didn't have any lock tite so I dunno if your triumph will or not.

If your master link is a clip also make sure you put silicone around it so it doesn't come off.

If Falkryte can't help I got you covered with tools and such as well. Just don't have a chain tool so you will have to have a clip master link for me to put the new chain back on.

Ill be gone for a week. You are welcome to come make sure shes alright while im gone

Miranda just simply did it. no experiance. When she got stuck i would help a little. Rear wheel alignment is no biggie. I do have a spoke wrench

Realignment of the rearwheel isn't as hard as you think. Usually there are indicators on the swingarm to help with that.

Yea I'll let you know once i get all the parts in, I'm almost positive its not a clip style master link. I'm debating whether or not this is the time to have my wheels powdercoated as well, but I'd need a one to two day turn around on them. My truck is on its last leg so I can't be driving around for a week with no bike.
