Look at my sprockets!! Help

Are these okay for 10k miles or so? It seems looks like the chain is digging into the teeth...

Is my chain too tight/loose?







Also how do I embed pictures without them redirecting to photobucket??

could be a mis-aligned chain

the tic marks on your swingarm should get you fairly close. Another way is to put the bike on a rear stand and rotate the wheel by hand and look to see where the sprocket teeth fall between the chain links.

I just bought a Motion Pro chain alignment tool, but haven't used it yet

That's nice! How did you get the picture to be embedded without sending to photobucket?

I'll have to check.. I could have sworn I was anal about it last time

Find a pic on the interwebs, right click and select copy image location. Then in the reply box click on the Insert Image button then just paste the link

It is an aluminum sprocket and depends and how you ride but they don't last near as long as we would like!

The real question is, is this baby safe to ride on for a couple of months?

It's only going to get worse! Where it's at now you will be fine, just keep an eye on it! Just be sure to change both sprockets and. Chain together

The problem is that the chain isn't hardly stretched.. But it does have about 10k miles on both

The thing is, chains and sprockets wear together! So if your sprocket is wearing rough it will cause inconsistencies with the chain as well, then it can cause issues with the new sprockets! It will cost about 150 or so but well worth it! Steel sprockets are a bit heavier but if you are not racing you would not notice the difference and they will far outlast the aluminum!

The teeth are packed out.


One thing that many should realize and learn to accept. Your bike is covered in wearing parts. These parts will require routine replacement. Its the nature of owning a motorcycle and you shouldn't cut corners.

Chain and sprocket sets will wear out, replace them. Same goes for tires, brake pads, fluids, suspension seals and fluids, cables, filters etc

Maintain your bike. It should ALWAYS be in a good state of repair. Your bike isn't packed with safety systems to protect your ass if something goes wrong, so you need to be extra diligent in making sure the odds are on your side


If you feel that you cannot afford to maintain your bike properly you should either consider a more affordable bike or not riding. Its your own neck after all

the thing I noticed was the wear on the SIDE of the sprocket from the chain. Also if you look on the teeth, you'll see a "burr" from the center of the chain wearing off to one side

The 'burr' is from the material being compacted. Wear on the side is typical. The chain will always hunt for the center of the sprocket as there is lateral free play between chain and sprocket
