Mine is a 3/4 drive with a 1/2 --> 3/4 adaptor inserted.
I got mine from a garage/yard sale years ago.
It is a Kinchrome brand.

Pretty much identical to this

dropped a tooth

Hey,

I was changing my front sprocket with xcountryrider and afry this weekend and he suggested I post up here (he still loves you guys :)) .

So I downsized to a 15t on the front and it rides like a whole new bike. The throttle is more sensitive and I can fully unload (and lift a bit) the front-end on throttle only. I do have to shift a bit more, but it feels more like other bikes I've had.
One bit of advice, in looking for the part (15t front sprocket for a 525 chain) I found it's the same part as for the GSXR 600/750/1000, SV650/1000, Triumph 675, DL650/1000, & ZX10R. Cyclegear had one on the shelf.

I see what the converts mean when they say this is the gearing Triumph should have installed :)

Have you noticed any significant impact on MPG?

yes, but it's my "fun time playing" with the throttle. I was getting about 37-39 mpg before. I reset the computer and the latest stat was 31 mpg and climbing. Once the new acceleration and power band thrills wear off I'm sure I'll get back up to 36+, but I'll let you know. It also keeps me from drifting up into the 90s on the highway. I'm tending to cruise at ~78 at 5k rpm.

Riot - thank you. Worked on it today and these instructions were spot on. Notice they even put in an alignment dot to make it idiot proof when putting it back on. Thanks!

You will need a large socket to loosen the nut on the front sprocket. I can't remember the size. Loosen the front sprocket before removing the chain, an air impact wrench makes it a cinch to remove. The rear is self explanatory.

You will need a chain breaker and rivetting tool. Motion Pro makes a good one. I bought one made by RK.

If you look at the Spec for the DID 525VM2, it is rated for just over 8,000lb of tensile strength with a maximum of 750cc recommended ( no doubt for off road use and likely 900cc for on road). I also don't think the chain represents the best value for your money considering the cost. Perhaps consider the GB525XSO-124 by RK with 8,850 lbs for just over a buck or JT JTC525X1R124L with 8,930 lbs of tensile strength for right around 65 sheckles shipped. Just my two cents :o))

On the rear sprocket, make sure you buy a new bolt kit. To remove the old bolts always turn the nut, NOT the bolts. Always use loctite & a torq wrench.
Your new chain will have a master link. Make sure it faces forward. Like a fish swimming up stream. If you've never put on a master link, then you may want help from somebody with experience. If you put it on wrong, then it will come off.

Why do you need to order/use a new bolt kit for the rear sprocket and what is your source for this?

You do realize that you are replying to thread that over two years old.

I realize that threads often get revived and that people still read older threads and may want more "current" input. Thank you for your concern though.
