Chain and sprockets. Where to get them put on?

I bought a new chain and both sprockets and im looking to get them put on my bike. Where is a good place to get this done at a reasonable price? Also what would you consider a reasonable price?

DIY

If you own a bike i think you should be able to have the basics down. JMO

You should be able to tighten chain, change sprockets, do oil changes, filter changes, pull tires off and take to be changed. I started out a LONG time ago and had a set of cheap wal mart tools that did the job great.

Check the sponsor page like stated.

I wouldn't DIY without an impact. If you own or can borrow an impact, I say DIY.

I did too. For someone with little experience with a wrench I would recommend letting a shop do it. For an inexperienced DIY'er he rear tire almost always comes off first. Then there is nothing but trans gears to stop the counter shaft sprocket from turning while a cheater is applied. That's not good. I am guilty of this the first time I did this job. With an impact you can easily get the CS sprocket off either way. I would recommend breaking the front loose before messing with the rear.

Yeah honestly BaoPee and I changed mine once... using this method, a cheater bar/backwards 2 ft wrench and his tiny asian frame....

Tony will do right by you on pricing for real... but if you decide you want to DIY there are plenty of people willing to help. I'd help on Sunday maybe... I think that is the only day this weekend I am free.

I wouldn't change my sprockets/chain without an impact and a chain tool, but that's just me. I don't care for clip on masters or the little bastards that you rivet on with a wrench. Also to remove the old chain, the chain breaker likes you a lot more if you grind the rivet head down before punching them out. So grinders are handy too.

I tried with a cheater bar to remove the giant factory front sprocket retainer at home on the Versys. That sucker just spun, and actually threw the implement I had jamming the wheel (versys has a weirdly shaped aluminum rear swing arm), went to the shop and the impact got it off in 2 seconds leaving me wondering why I was with a breaker bar in Texas heat. Even with jamming the rear wheel, but the thing still wouldn't come off, but the folks on the Versys forums said it was common, Kawasaki puts them on there pretty tight.

On the XT225, the front sprocket was just held in with a retainer and two 10mm bolts IIRC. It was a piece of cake.

I do pretty much everything to my bike except tire and wheels. I appreciate the offers to help. It really comes down to making the time to do it. If i can get it done at a reasonable price then ill just go that route.
Tony, if you wouldnt mind pm me an estimate on what u would charge to do this. 05 ninja 636. Thanks

I have actually thought about setting up and doing stuff like this for cash but I don't have the business insurance for it. I'm just paranoid about bringing other people's stuff into my shop without it, otherwise I'd be in business.

Sounds like houseofpaint has you covered though!
