Question about 2005 Triumph Daytona 955i
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
