Question about 2007 HM CRM F450RR I
Got crm f450rr Correct slack is approx 15-20mm
BUT adjusted like that there's a tight spot with 0mm. The green new chain required gauge on swinging arm tells me there's plenty of life left in the O ring chain. I've done approx 7K miles and chain wasn't new when I got the bike about 15 months ago. The sprockets are not BADLY worn. I fitted a Scottoiler 7 or 8 hundred miles ago..........Do you folks think I need a new chain and sprockets? This tight spot has only very recently become evident - don't think I've damaged the chain but maybe I have. Think I'm talking myself into new chain here!..............Anyone got advice about cheap/good value UK suppliers? Could do the job myself I thinkIf the tight spot is bad enough you will need to replace. And you MUST do it as a set...chain and sprockets. It is a waste of money to just replace the chain because the worn sprockets will wear it out in no time. And do not cheap out on the chain. Make sure you get a good quality O or X- Ring chain. I know the popular thing to do with sprockets is to get Aluminum to save weight, but I'd get the steel. It may weigh more but it will last twice as long. Just re-read, if it is adjusted to spec and the tight spot has no freeplay, yeah, time to replace.,,,
