Question about 2005 Triumph Daytona 955i

Chain adjustment question

I am at my first chain adjustment on an 02 Daytona. I also have a 17 tooth front sprocket I want to put on. It is the CE so it has the SSSA. I figure the only way that cranking that wheel will tighten the chain is if there is an offset hole that the axel rides in inside the hub. I also read somewhere that adjusting the chain affects the ride height. Does anyone know if 1) I need to drop a link in the chain to lose a tooth on the front sprocket and 2)if I can crank it forward so the hole drops down to lower the seat height rather than raise it? Thanks in advance for any help.

Well i dont think the ride hieght will change, nothing you could notice, and if your changing sprockets its best to do both and a new chain, now i might add that it is preffered to change chain with sprockets not required if the sprockets are ok. As to the length i can only say i run the 17 tooth around the city and for the long trips i swap back to the 18, mind you it is a new 18 not the original, of course with the change back (2nd time) i have not changed the chain and have been running the same chain length, it has shortened the wheel base from the original 18 tooth front, but i kinda like it a little shorter, gives me more weight over it and the front gives more feed back, but thats just me, not saying its right

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.

    What size chain does a gsxr 1000 take

    Can you change tranny gears to decrease rpm's on highway? Or maybe change sprockets.

    You can add teeth to the front sprocket or take teeth off of the rear sprocket. In the case of your bike , I do not think there is a 17 tooth front available so your best option would be to shorten your chain and drop from the 44 tooth rear sprocket to 40 tooth or a 36 tooth rear sprocket. That would be like adding one or two teeth to the front sprocket. Your stock is 16/44 so decrease from there. Be sure to ID your chain, get a chain breaker, and a new master link.

    I need the specifications on a 1996 Kawasaki Ninja Zx6R Rear Wheel Chain. I need to buy a new one and don't know what size/specifications I need.

    You need the pitch, roller width, roller thickness (All in all just the chain type) OEM is a 525, 108 link chain with a 15 tooth front sprocket and 40 tooth rear.
    It is best to change sprockets and chain together. A stretched/worn chain will damage the sprockets which in turn will lead to premature wear on a new chain.
    Best way to identify pitch(and chain type) is to measure the sprocket width(thickness).
    • 0.227" (5.76mm) - 520 chain
    • 0.284" (7.21mm) - 525 chain
    • 0.343" (8.71mm) - 530 chain
    Technically speaking they all have the same pitch (5/8") as you can see they are of different widths. Please note that a 420 and 425 have the same widths as 520 and 525 but their pitch is different(0.5")
    Further you will have to decide between stock, O-ring and X-ring. X-ring being the most expensive(and supposedly longest lasting) but in my experience lasts the same as an o-ring chain.

    How to u put chain on r6

    If the chain has a master link, then you can just loosen the rear axle and let the chain tension adjustment all the way in. Then wrap the chain around both sprockets and install the connecting link. After this retighten the chain. For a chain without a master link( endless chain) you will have to remove the swing arm to allow you to get the chain on the front sprocket. After reinstalling the swing arm, and rear wheel you can adjust the chain tension and then tighten the rear axle.

    2008 wr 450 how do i split the chain do i need 2 gring a link down so i can push it out ?

    Yes you do need to split the chain but I would have a real good look at the condition of your sprockets 1st.Obviously you have run out of adjustment on the chain but taking a link out might not be the answer.With the rear wheel lifted,spin the wheel back and forwards a few times.Now, at the rear of the rear sprocket,pull on one of the chain links.Pull it away from the sprocket.If you can lift it away from the sprocket about 1/2 a sprocket tooth,both chain and sprockets need replacing.Just keep this in mind because a broken chain on 450's can do a lot of damage.Hope this helps

    My chain will tighten up and slacken with one rotation of the wheel

    chains & sprockets are subject to extreme forces & adverse conditions.adjust chain to recommended specs at the 'tight spot',with riders weight on saddle.excessively worn chain is denoted by being able to pull chain away from rear sprocket teeth enough to expose 1/2 a tooth.worn sprockets will have 'pointy'teeth.if wheel sprocket is worn,don't ignore drive sprocket.use a quality lube designed for exposed chains.
