Need Help installing 15T front Sprocket!!!!
Posted June 17, 2007 - 10:01 AM
Which way does the sprocket go on? it's different then the original as it has a rubber (anti vibration dampener i guess) piece molded to each side and is thicker so im not sure which side goes inward. I am guessing you install it with the '15 tooth' marked area facing outwards?
Second question there is a steel chain guard under the plastic cover and it appears to be touching my chain now, is it safe to remove this or can I modify (elongate the holes) it and re-use it, or what?
please respond ASAP if anyone knows as it's in my garage all apart now. ( a good time to change my oil while I await )
Thanks in advance........rob

The case saver you could either elongate the holes, replace it, or grind it away. A 15T front will not clear almost all case savers with out some form of modification to it so be careful the one you buy if you opt to replace it. Elongating the holes is probably better because it allows full width for strength. Sprocket can go on either way as long as it is equal thickness. If it has a spacer or pad then it needs to ride the counter shaft in the same location as your stocker. Simply mark the counter shaft then mount the new one and see.
i didnt have to mod my case saver to get my 15t on. its a tight fit but can be done

They do work.....
[COLOR="Green"]I dont know why its called a case saver. That thing is not going to save anything when a chain bunches up in the countershaft. The only thing its going to do is crack the case at the screw holes. I honestly dont know why they put those things on there[/COLOR]

Case saver worked on my xr400 years ago. My chain broke over a jump and the chain spit right out of the back of the bike.
Thats because its a tank.
