Question about 2005 Harley Davidson VRSCB V-Rod
I disagree with having to change sprockets for a new chain.I ride a old Harley that I have had for over 20yrs and 200000 miles.The sprocket on the wheel is rivetted on the hub so it doesnt get changed until it is bad.The front sprocket you have to pull the primary off to change.I get 20000-40000 miles out of a chain and if you keep it adjusted you can get 2 chains to one set of sprockets.
Dealers try the BS of not running a new chain on old sprockets to make more $$$$$$.
So if your sprockets are good as in not sharp or hooked run them.

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.

you need to find a thing called tdc top dead centre. if you look on you tube you will find loads of videos to explan it. tdc means where your piston is at its highest and your valves are shut.
