Chain and Sprockets?
« on: March 20, 2019, 01:17:02 PM »
I'm A bit confused what size is the Chain & Sprockets on a 2018 XRT.

Got mine as a kit from

Go for X ring.  Better than O ring.

I had already decided I would replace the standard factory O ring chain with a better quality X ring chain and then went about doing a bit of sprocket research. The final conclusion I made from various sources was that JT sprockets are pretty much the best (standard type) sprockets available, so that is what I went with, I wasn't going to pay for good chain and then fit poor quality sprockets.  :028:

I replaced mine with a X ring chain after 32000 miles,  seems the latest chain technology uses a Z ring 🤔

StevieP, thanks for the great info' on your older chain 'n sprockets replacement thread, nice job. 

Did you ever drop some extra links off the 124 link OEM length so as to move the wheel further forward on the adjustment slots in the swinging arm?  But understand doing that would prevent the installation of larger diameter sprockets though, if that was your persuasion...

Tks...Tony

No, because as yet the wheel hasn't barely been adjusted rearward. Since that reported initial adjustment after the Megameet mileage last May I have only needed to adjust once more, another 1 full turn on each adjuster screw. I still want to try dropping the links eventually, for interest mainly to see how much difference it creates. The critical part will be the actual chain condition at the point this is possible. If the chain was well within wear specs I would be tempted to drop the links and renew the front sprocket and see how it runs?
