New bike owner here. i just got aatk 700 and love it. she needs some loving though. i've gotten the chain tightened due to the chain clicking or popping at low rpms but now i've noticed a new problem. the chain seems to be clicking in a pattern bout every second or sooner. the guys at the local bike shop said i had a bad sprocket when i went to have the chain tightened the first time. does this sound right? i have heard that the local bike shop has dicked around a few people and they seem a little pricey at 350 for the repair. anyone have a similar problem or can you confirm that this chain 'popping' or 'clicking' noise is in fact due to a worn out chain sprocket, or do i just need a new chain. i know that the chain is about ready to be replaced i have 22,000 on the bike. ,It sounds like one or both of the sprockets could be worn. If you change out a sprocket you might as well change out both. Price out the parts at and do it yourself.,,,

I need to know the size of the center hole on a 19 tooth transmission sprocket for an apc mini chopper Thanks

Why do you need to know the size of the centre hole. That one look in great condition. The size is the size of the shaft it fits on, so you measure the narrower distance, which is between the sprocket tooth that is under the middle of your thumb nail, to the second tooth past your index finger. All this links have info.

    New Drive Sprockets for the late model FLHX

    No, But they do offer a real nice chrome cover for them. Much less expensive than chrome plate. You can get one at your local Harley dealer or most any cycle shop can order you one from aftermarket supplies like Custom Chrome or Drag Specialties.

    Front sprocket oil leak

    Get a new seal before taking the sprocket off. Remove the sprocket cover plate. You will see two small bolts holding a lock plate on the sprocket. Remove the bolts, lock plate and sprocket. Clean the sprocket shaft so the new seal is not damaged when installing. Now just pry out the old seal any way you can with a screwdriver and small hammer. Install the new seal flush with the casing.

    How to install hd self adjusting primary chain tensioner in O4 Ultra.

    Sooner or later, every bike will need a new chain and sprockets. Once a chain begins to wear, its pitch changes and wears the sprocket teeth. Then the chain begins to wear even faster. Then it's time for a new chain, and a new pair of sprockets.
    The rear wheel on my motorcycle had been misaligned (I had used the inaccurate etched indicators on the swingarm-rather than a ruler against the sprocket-to set wheel alignment) and ridden hard through a gritty, salty winter. The rear sprocket was in rough shape, and the chain was making lots of popping sounds as the bike went down the road.
    Changing a chain is a fairly basic job that requires a chain breaker / riveting tool and whatever is needed to remove the rear wheel and sprockets. It's nice to have a blow torch and a torque wrench on hand for this job, too.
    The ingenious Terra-X chain tool is made in Australia out of tool steel, and weighs just 150 grams. A big hollow bolt threads into the bigger of the two holes, and is used when pressing outer plates onto new master links. A smaller bolt with a pin can thread into the hollow bolt, and is used to push link pins out of old chains or to peen new master link pins by pushing them against a grub screw threaded into the steel body's other hole. That little grub screw with a rounded steel end screws into the smaller hole of the chain breaker. It fits into and peens the hole of the new master link.
    When changing a chain, the first step is to loosen the bolts on the front sprocket. It's good to get those loose while the chain is still on the bike, partly to avoid putting undue stress on the transmission, and partly to avoid getting deep into the job and finding that the front sprocket bolts are stuck. In this case, the small allen bolts needed a bit of heat to come undone.
    After the bolts are loose, it's time to break the chain. With the Terra-X chain tool, you remove the small grub screw and use the small bolt with the pin to push out one of the chain's pins. No grunting or swearing required.
    Then comes sprocket replacement. Six nuts on the rear sprocket, the two bolts on the front sprocket, and that step is done. I had a torque wrench handy, so I could get the torque values just right when putting everything back together.
    The next step is the big one: installing the master link that joins the ends of the new chain together. The master link comes with a little bag with some X-Rings, a master link, and some sticky tan lube. Smear the lube on the pins and inside the X-Rings, then begin to assemble the master link around the two ends of the chain, making sure to get the X-Rings in the right spots.
    Pressing the outer plate onto the master link is the hardest part of the job. I removed the pin bolt from the Terra-X tool and used the hollow bolt to push the outer plate onto the master link's pins. It took a few tries, but eventually I got it in the correct position.
    After the sprockets are on and the master link is in position, the master link's pins need to be peened. With the Terra-X, the pin bolt pushes the master link pin against the grub screw's steel ball, and flares the pin. It takes a lot of effort-mostly because it's not easy to get a lot of leverage on tools when they're underneath a motorcycle.
    Position the wheel for proper chain tension, torque everything to the correct specs, and you're back on the road. The new chain is smooth, nearly silent, and ready for thousands of miles of high-speed running.

    Gladiator chain problem

    I hate to give you the bad news but it is not likely the damaged sprocket is under warranty. The sprocket was not bent when it left the showroom floor and Yamaha Corporation has no control where and how you drive.

    Chains should run true and not be forced to move side to side to fit a bent sprocket. The sprockets are hardened steel. It is not a good idea to bend them back and forth.

    You didn't say which sprocket had the problem. A front sprocket will cost around $30 and a rear sprocket will cost around $60. Installation will also cost unless you do it yourself.

    Have broken the chain on a wrf 250 03 model and managed to take a small piece out of the casing adjacent to the front sprocket. Seams to have exposed a small oil capillary feeding the gear box. Any...

    I am unaware of any oil capillary by the sprocket. The only thing in that area not fully exposed to gear box oil is the left end of the shift drum. There wouldn't be enough friction on the drum to need any oil not already provided by the gear oil.

    I would suggest the following > Drain the oil and then remove the sprocket and then thoroughly clean up the area around the sprocket and the break. Take the bike to a local welding shop. They should have a MIG or a TIG welder which will weld the casing. After the welding is done ,install a new oil seal on the output shaft.

    The above suggestion is the low cost way to get by. The proper way is to replace the casing, preferably as a matched set of upper and lower case halves. If you get just the bottom, ( or top ), half you run a serious risk that the shafts may bind when bolted together. Replacing the lower casing is not all that big of a task. Replaceing the top casing is a pretty big job because the entire top end has to come off as does the crankshaft, clutch, gears and shafts, shift drum and electrical. Major project and NOT for the novice or the timid. You could Google ' motorcycle salvage yamaha ' and get the casing(s) or get the entire gearbox or the entire engine.

    It's your decision how far to carry the repair. Personally, I would weld the box. It is a low cost and easy thing to try. Worst case is that you wind up replacing casings. Hey, the weld was worth a try!

    Yes. It’s likely that the sprockets are worn. Putting a new chain non a worn pair of sprockets will make the chain wear out faster—and replacing the sprockets without replacing the chain will sear out the sprockets. Do them as a set.
