Thanks for the good info. Have I been under a false assumption believing I always have to replace the chain and sprockets as a set? I can't remember if I got that from my mountain biking or motorcycling buddies. I know my chain has been stretching, as my snail adjusters are just about run out. My rear sprocket is almost toast, too. Can I feasibly replace just my chain and rear sprocket, and not my countershaft sprocket?

Sorry to ask what must seem like such basic questions. I really can change my own oil and tires, I promise!

If your adjusters are run out that in it's self tells you that the chain has stretched and a stretched chain will NOT mesh properly with a new sprocket either a front or rear. In your case it would be a safe bet to replace everything and start fresh. My kids friend put a new rear sprocket (alloy) on his dirt bike with a worn chain and it was lucky to last the day. What a waste of money.

thats why I mean sacrifice the chain not the sprockets...same goes for the camchain, my chain is new, sprockets were still in good conditon

the key is maintenance, if all you do maintenance wise is tighten up the snails, then your beyond the point of keeping the sprockets

what you never do is put a new sprocket on an old chain

the inverse can be done, ESPECIALLY if you replace your non oring chain(less drag) BEFORE the point where you ca see sunlight on the back sprocket when pulling it aft...

try this get your bike on a stand...pull the chain back, right at the middle point if the rear sprocket, uf you can see light that means that its beyond a simple chain replacement, at this point it is best to use a COMPLETE sprocket and chain set.

If you have a 1mm or 2mm movement and your sprockets arent jagged replace chain only

the best maintenance is daily routine maintenance

its when you slack off that you have issues like such a stretched chain burning up an alloy NEW rear sprocket...

thats a big dumb no no

and I know DUMB

cheers

I use easily replaceable and cheap did roller chain in bulk

it comes to about $40 a chain...for 112 or 110 links that I cut

the trick with non oring chains is they are easy to maintain and very very easy to replace a master link or whatnot...the links are also easilt cut when compared to bigger bulkier oring chains

1. pro is less resistance, in the rollers
2. they weigh less
3. they are cheaper and for the price of 1 good oring or xring chain you can but 3-4 standard good quality roller non oring chain.

In your case I would replace everything unless you have a cheap new rear sprocket and cheap new non oring chain to put on...

up in the states you have such a great deal at rocky mountain atv for a primary drive chain and sprocket combo for less than $100

up there I would just do that and be happy

cheers
