How to change front sprocket

7 posts in this topic

I'm looking at going to a 15 tooth front sprocket, but am new to dirt bikes. Is this pretty easy to do, I haven't really looked at it closely yet. ALso , will I be able to use my stock chain?

Piece Of Cake, Loosen Axle Bolt, Screw Chain Adjusters In A Ways, Remove Sprocket Bolts And There Should Be Enough Slack In The Chain To Remove Countershaft Sprocket And Insert New Sprocket. Don't Forget To Re Adjust The Chain And Tighten Axle

That's what I was hoping to hear. With my street rims/tires on there, I run a smaller back sprocket (46 or 47, can't remember off hand) and I'm afraid if I go any smaller, I won't be able to adjust the stock chain tight enough.

A good bike stand is a must of course, and if you have an impact wrench and compressor, its easy cheesy...

good luck

Have air tools, just no compressor at the moment, so will have to make do the old fashioned way. What are the torque specs for the front sprocket?

Forget torque specs. Tighten things like that until they're tight with some blue loctite.

Yeah, What Tim said...You can torque the little bolts to about 8 or 9 ft lbs..

No need for a air gun....... :)
