Make sure the bike is off . Grab the chain with both hands in the middle of the bottom rung attempt to pull it apart... one hand goes towards the front the other towards the back. If you feel a lot of play it's time to get a new one. Or grab it at the back of the rear sprocket and attempt to pull it away from the sprocket. If you see more then 1/2 a tooth replace it.,,,

Bike chain

With a chain splitter! It's a good idea to change the front and rear sprockets too so buy the lot when you're buying the chain. Loosen the tension on the chain tensioners on the rear wheel. Split the links. Remove chain. Remove and replace sprockets. Replace chain and be sure to use a chain riveter to sort out the joint. Don't be tempted to use a split link as your bike is too big and powerful for one. Adjust your chain tension checking for tight spots etc. Apply lube and enjoy!

Chain is sticking to back sprocket and making my bike **** when i accelerate

Sounds like the chain is worn out and needs replacing if there is no more adjustment!

A good idea is to replace the sprockets at the same time, as they wear along with the chain, and will cause a new chain to wear out sooner.

How long does a chain normally last on a sport bike, katana 600,

It all depends on the quality of the chain and sprockets, how it is looked after and how the bike is ridden. I have known them last from 25 minutes to 10,000 miles. If you replace the chain you should replace the sprockets as well ( the chain will last longer.)

Hi I have a Bajaj Discover 125 2006 model and recently the engine has started overheating massively, the power of bike has also come down and the avg has also taken a hit. I have changed engine oil, oil...

Start by installing a new chain. Any chain that kinks up is a funeral, (yours), waiting to happen. Chances are that replacing the chain will fix all the problems you mentioned.

I had a problem with chain and had to replace link due to the old chain snapped and binded up well ever since I fixedf the chasin my bike is shifting hard from 1st gear and up what do i have to do!

Hey Matt, when you reduce the chain linkage, the lenght and play of your chain will definitely be affected,what you need to do is if you have an extra budget try to change your chain. Or adjust your rear wheel going forward, Ideal setting is approx. 1inch play up and down. this is the right setting for chain play. If you gonna change it try to use o-ring type chain better than standard chain.Let me know if it works. Thanks

I have a 2002 V Star Classic that has whining noise in the engine,with the bike in neutral I hit the throttle and I get a gear or timing chain whine maybe? I don't know. Do chains wear? It has 18,000 miles

if the whining goes away with the more gas you give it, you deed to replace you cam chain tensioner. if the noise stays or gets worse when you give it gas, you need to replace the cam chain.

How do u know if your chain is worn out or if it

Unhook the master link and lay the chain in the concrete. Next, hold one end to the concrete and sort of push the chain towards the stationary end. The object is to push the chain together as opposed to stretching it apart. Mark the concrete at the location of the shortened end. Now again hold the stationary end firm and this time stretch the chain to its' fullest length. Mark the concrete again at the end of the stretched chain. If the distance between the marks is over one inch the chain should be replaced.
Look at the teeth of both sprockets. Are the teeth rounded on the end or are the teeth forming a pointed looking end? If rounded, then the sprocket is good. If pointed, then the sprocket is bad.
Bad sprockets can ruin a good chain. The exception to the one inch rule is a chain that is rusted and no longer limber. Replace a rusted chain. Remember, always install the master link clip with the blunt end facing the direction of chain travel.
Please rate this solution, Thanks.

I'm very guilty of not adjusting my chain the entire time I've been riding - which is 2503 miles. I was looking over my bike and the chain is hanging low on the top and rubbing in to the chain guard. I don't have the time to get a replacement cotter pin to attempt adjusting it myself. So I have four questions: 1) How much should it cost for a shop to adjust my chain? 2) How does this compare to replacing the chain and sprockets? 3) How hard is it to adjust the chain yourself? The most important thing to me is being able to keep the alignment appropriately through the whole procedure. 4) What is the highest reliability chain (longest endurance) for a bike that rides a lot of highway miles. I described chain adjustment on my bike --,,

Sprocket problem

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.,,,
