    While trying to change plastic swing arm chain guard seems front sprocket must come off. While trying to remove front sprocket seems swing arm must come off! Seriously!! No...... say it isn't so! Feeling frustrated.

    Apparently all you have to do is remove the swingarm bolt, back the axle out a bit and it will give you enough clearance to remove the front sprocket. You don't have to remove the swingarm.

    Weird thing is, seems like not two bikes are the same... Even more weird is that prior to leaving for a round trip to continental Europe in August I changed chain and front sprocket. To get the old sprocket off I took my dremel and shaved of a tiny bit of two of the teeth, the new identical OEM sprocket went in there with no hesitation at all...
    Spooky!

    I used a puller and it scratched the swing arm a bit but it did come off!

    Ok
    even though in the part finder you cannot find the front sprocket separately
    It is actually available on its own. Part number 60033129017
    Can I advice people thinking of putting a different brand of chain and sprockets to use the original ktm rubber damped front sprocket,
    I have just used a JT front sprocket for 3000 km and it was like my bike was dying
    Loads of chain lash,
    More vibrations,
    More noise,
    Basicly not a nice ride

    Now with rubber damped sprocket
    The ride is a lot smoother, quieter.

    A night and day difference!

    KTM part no for std 17 tooth damped front sprocket is 60033129017

    Rear sprocket (std 42 T) is 60010051042

    Chain slider if you want to change that at the same time is 60304066000

    Just picked mine up yesterday!

    If anyone wants to fit a replacement chain as per the original its a CZ SDZ 525 118 link (gold sideplates) - don't buy it from your KTM dealer its available elsewhere for about half the price they are quoting!

    I bought an oem chain and sprockets replacement kit for $300can. I thought the price was quite reasonable.

    In the UK the dealer price for OEM sprockets is acceptable, there are cheaper alternatives out there but based my experience with the originals it seemed sensible to go for the same as their quality/longevity has been proven........but I was quoted £130 by the dealer for the chain and without trying too hard I actually found it for £74 inc delivery to my door within 2 days so a no brainer really. Existing slider would probably be OK but for what it costs and the ease of replacing it its not worth scrimping - will be good to have the whole drive assembly refreshed.

    I'm pretty sure I saw jointing links listed separately when I was researching for the chain in the UK but you may need to find an importer/dealer in Oz first, or maybe take a look on the CZ website. New chain comes with the link in the package.

    Edit: Just checked, M & P Accessories in the UK list them @ £1.99, so yes, it appears they are available.
