Replacing Chain and Sprockets

8 posts in this topic

So, I have 2009 WR450 and it and the owners manual is at the cabin.  I want to purchase a new chain and sprockets.  I did some searching, but wasn't sure what my gearing, chain size and number of links is stock.  With the mix of riding I do, I'm fine with the stock setup.

 

Thanks in advance.

Usually you can punch bike type in Rocky Mountain atv and they will get you what fits. But what you should get is a 520 X-ring chain 13 tooth sprocket and a 50 tooth on the rear. Most people just buy a 120 link chain and cut it to fit.

^ yes if you buy a 120 it's cheaper than getting it cut to fit for you.

Thanks guys.

 

Just in case I can find one cheap, what is the correct number of links?

your sprocket should be stamped, if you bought the bike used it may have been changed by the PO

Thanks everyone.  I did buy my bike new, but it and the manual are 100 miles away from home.
