Non contractual photo, illustration example !! how to see if it's time to change?
Tension marks: with wear, the chain extends and relaxes. To tighten it, pull the wheel backwards thanks to the tensioners located against the nuts of the wheel axle.
Close to these tensioners are the tension markers. They are used to adjust the left and right turnbuckles symmetrically and to see when approaching the limit race. If you're pulling your chain, you get to the end of these benchmarks, it's time to change it.
And so in general, change your kit chain. The teeth of the pinion and the crown: you can also observe the teeth of the pinion and the crown. If they are rounded, even puffed, or downright crooked ...It is definitely time to change. You can also test your chain by grabbing it between two fingers at the crown, and pulling backwards. If you happen to discover half of a tooth of the crown, or more, it is either you must retendre, or if you just do, that your chain is dead ..
to fall a kit chain and change it , things vary a lot from one bike to another, but here are some answers to common questions. Closed chain or open chain?
1st case the chain goes around the swingarm ... And you can take out your chain, so reinstall one, without having to open it, or have anything to disassemble.
So you can buy a closed chain, set in the factory. 2nd possibility, the chain passes in the reinforcement of the oscillating arm: here the question does not arise, (the reinforcement is welded), you have to open the chain to take it out, and to install an open chain which you will close yourself. Drift chain or grinder for disassembly, shore chain for reassembly ... 3rd possibility, it goes behind the axis, in the swingarm: some will choose to disassemble the arm, so as not to have to open the old chain, and especially to install a closed chain factory ... That said, it is still a lot of work, and some prefer to open the old chain and crimp the news.To choose well its multiplication. The replacement of the kit chain can be an opportunity to refine the motor skills by playing on the gear. In racing for example some go up to modify their ratio depending on each circuit of the same, the purchase of a pinion having a tooth gap more or less will change the motor skills as needed: a pinion more small, or a larger crown to increase acceleration, but limiting the top speed.
A larger gear, or a smaller crown to pull longer and push the top speed, but with less acceleration. Open or crimp a motorcycle chain.
Derive (derive) a motorcycle chain without worry: to derive no problem: either you have a drift chain or you grind the ends of the two axes on a chain link, then with a screwdriver you blow the plate of the link. Then you remove it as you would for a quick coupler. River (rivet) a motorcycle chain: to close the chain you have two solutions: either it comes with a quick coupler. Which is rather simple and ... (but often reserved for small and medium sized cars).Either, you have to crimp yourself the last link. You'll get there with a chain edge, which is usually half as expensive as a workshop installation ... And you will be useful for several installations, or to shorten your channel. Avoid absolutely the hammer to drift and even worse to river: first the result will not be guaranteed, and a chain that opens at full speed ...
It's more than dangerous. Then because you can distort the chain and cause unhealthy wear. Some disassembly / reassembly tips. Before you start, measure the actual wear of your chain kit. Choosing the right type of string: The basic rule is to never take a lower quality than the original one.Then you can go upmarket according to your type of use. The more sporty your driving is and the stronger your machine, the more jerking on the chain will be important. And so, the more you have to go up in quality. A tour route in road obviously does not require the same reliability as a use mx, trial or gp (or quad, which solicit much secondary transmission). Depending on the type of course: similarly, the hardness of the environment will play. The uses mx, enduro, trial etc, are more aggressive than the road circuits. In this type of case, we prefer the oring chains, O-rings that will be better protected from water, mud, sand all those little things that mechanics love. After reassembly re-adjust the chain tension with the weight of the driver, if not a little more, if you often take an adult passenger. To reassemble the crown, put 2 drops of strong grease on the threads of the bolts.
This is a part of the motorcycle highly subject to vibration and shock. Remember that on some models the gear change may result in a change in the speed measurement.
Remember to do the correction. Important: always adjust the tension with the driver sitting on the motorcycle the tension of the chain changes with the movement of the suspension. It is therefore essential to make these settings loaded bike, otherwise you will end up with a chain much tense than expected. It is therefore necessary to be two to carry out the operation. Retensioning the chain: after having just unlocked the rear wheel axle nut, and the locknut of each tensioner, gradually tighten the tensioner on the chain side (to arrive at the correct tension), then screw the other of the same way.
The turnbuckles pull the wheel axle backwards, and thus tend the chain. Use markers on each tensioner to adjust them identically.
Check if the wheel is centered: You can check the alignment of the wheel with the graduations on the swingarm, or by measuring the distance between the ends of the swingarm axle and the ends of the wheel axle. Which must of course, be equidistant on each side. Tighten the wheel: Before locking the nuts and nuts, check that the wheel axle is in contact with the tensioners. Also make sure that the tensioner screws are locked in position, not loose.
Re-check the setting after final tightening. Sometimes the settings move during tightening. To avoid having done all this for nothing, once everything is blocked, check the tension of the chain and the alignment of the wheel again.
Should we prowl a kit-chain? In general, we start from the idea that every rolling part must be prowled. On the kit chain, it is perhaps less visible than on segments (breakage / tightening), tires (fall) or platelets (icing), but this nevertheless promotes a good implementation of the three elements, (chain, pinion, crown), and extends all the longer their life. Choose the delivery method before paying. Mondial relay only for continental France not the islands, like Corsican ..
