I'm gonna change my rear sprocket and front sprocket and chain how can I make sure it's gonna be done proper


Hi Jake if you have the right tools it will be no trouble. Before you remove the rear wheel remove the front sprocket cover and loosen the nut or nuts holding the front sprocket. This will be safer than doing it with the r/wheel off. Next remove the wheel and keep note as to where the spacers go (don't mix them up!) remove the sprocket nuts and the sprocket. Again note which way the sprocket goes some have a thinner center so make sure the new one fits the same way. Refit the wheel leave it loose and loosen the adjusters allowing the wheel all the way forward. Then open the chain and join the new chain to the end of the old one with the link supplied then pull the old chain until the new one is fitted. Next join the new chain together. ( you may need to remove a link or two) it will depend on the length of the new chain. After this fit the new f/sprocket and tighten the nut then adjust the chain leaving 1.5inches of free play up and down. Make sure the adjusters sre even on the marks each side. And finaly After a day or two of use adjust again to around 1 inch up and down. Have fun. Regards Jim...

After fitting new drive and chain sprockets i still have tight spots


When you fit new sprockets you also have to fit a new chain if you dont your sprockets will wear out very quickly, as your old chain is stretched to the old sprockets.

Chain broke and the new one wont quite fit how do i adjust the back wheel to make it fit, do I have to loosen the big lug b4 adjusting the screws


The large axle bolt holds the wheel in place. The adjusters are only used for setting the position of the wheel , mainly for chain and sprocket alignment. First remove the cotter pin and loosen the large nut on the axle bolt. Now you can loosen the adjuster bolts and slide the wheel forward. If you have the correct length chain for the sprockets every thing should fit perfectly. When you unhook the old master link do not remove the chain. Hook the new chain to the old chain using the old master link ( do not lock it on) just use it to pull the chain around the front sprocket. This will save you having to take off the front sprocket cover. I usually find it helpful to count the links on the old chain and lay the chains side by side to make sure the new chain does not get cut too short. If the chain is too short , you may have to get another master link and add some chain back in to get the correct length. Hope this helps.

Front sprocket oil leak


Get a new seal before taking the sprocket off. Remove the sprocket cover plate. You will see two small bolts holding a lock plate on the sprocket. Remove the bolts, lock plate and sprocket. Clean the sprocket shaft so the new seal is not damaged when installing. Now just pry out the old seal any way you can with a screwdriver and small hammer. Install the new seal flush with the casing.
