No quick change...just a stock carrier sprocket. $400 on final drive parts was plenty enough this time around (and for as often as sprockets get changed). Another $170 wouldn't have passed the sniff test with the wife for something I don't need and likely won't use. Hold off on the rivet tool for now...I'm going to wait for the sprocket to come in first. I can always ride the bike to AZ-Twin's place and have the wife follow with the stand in the car since I moved to SV last week and I'm a lot closer. As you mentioned...not necessary...but from what I'm reading a whole lot easier.

No worries. I found that the JT carrier with sprocket ended up being less than any other options (and I wanted different ratios because I have the little engine).

I find I go through chain/sprocket sets like I go through timing belts...

My current sprocket/chain set has 9k miles on it. The chain is toast and the front sprocket is starting to fish hook. The rear looks alright but there is some minor wear and if I'm spending $100+ on a new chain I might as well have new sprockets all the way around as well. The torque must really be a bitch on those parts even with proper lubrication. I have the factory service manual but may need a little assistance doing it the first time so I don't mess anything up...

Is the Hyper chain 520 or 525?

on the little bike I bumped it up to 525 and get a little better life out of it, but usually every 10-12k.

An aluminum rear sprocket will get chewed up about the same time the front does (maybe a little faster).

When you get all your stuff bring it over and we will get it done. I have all the tools we will need. The lift would be nice, but I have a big motorcycle lift like they use at the dealer, however you want to do it.

We can get lightfighter over there to help with the beer. I think it sounds like a fun day. Let me know when you want to do the work. 520-249-5237

As luck (bad) would have it I seem to have misplaced the front sprocket during the move. Now I have the correct rear sprocket and chain but no front. Arggggghhh!

Crisis resolved. Found it hiding in a box of kitchen stuff (because that's a good place for a sprocket). Any of y'all free some time this next weekend (Fri/Sat/Sun)?

I might be camping next weekend, not sure. I know I work Friday, but not sure about Sat/Sun. You want to work on it Friday evening? I don't have anything going on then.

Pending the wife already having made plans for us...that should work. Anything I'll need to bring tool wise (I'll have the beer covered...what do you prefer by the way...)? Just off the top of my head I know I'll need a largish socket for the front sprocket retaining nut (need to measure it) and a torque wrench that can handle 130 ft/lbs. I already have the rear sprocket nut "tool" and tensioner tool that are specific to the bike.

I have some large Metric sockets, I think 23-26mm, but I will double check when i get home. I have a torque wrench that will do 130. I can't htink of anything else.

You are welcome, any time. We need to go riding one of these days. After camping last night, I now have another hangover.
