chain and sprockets - wheres cheapest
« on: January 27, 2018, 03:41:59 PM »
Need a new chain and sprockets for my 2011 roadie as chain has a tight spot in it (loads of life left otherwise  :023:) so any recommendations other than the dreaded ebay? Best I've seen is DID for around 87.00

This is an OK dealer, used him many times, I usually collect from him only 7 miles away

Chain and sprockets bought, shame the bloody front sprocket is stuck on, 2 ft breaker bar won't shift it so lets hope the impact driver I'm borrowing does the trick!

Personally I wouldn't use an impact driver, possibility of damaging the internal gearbox gears.

Usually the nuts are finger tight, mine was and reports of them coming off whilst riding  :114:

I needed a breaker bar with an extension - soak the nut threads in PlusGas or similar overnight

Don't put WD40 on its not up to the job, plusgas like has just been said, get someone to give you a lift, stick it in 6th and rear brake on hard, 6 sided socket, 2 foot bar,  the nut will relent don't worry

When I have really tight stuff like this i.e car main hub nuts I use a long (12") extension on the socket and set up an axle stand to support the outer end of the extension instead of holding it making it easier to then use the T bar on the end and stand on it (in excess of 200ft/lbs  :164: :008: ).
Also owned my 1979 Bonnie T140E from new!
