Fitting new sprocket?

Ok, another stupid question, or questions. I need to install my new 15T sprocket and I've never done it before (first bike in years). I am mechanically minded though, and have pulled apart and rebuilt things all my life, so don't panic!

I assume I will need to readjust the chain after, so do I just loosen the wheel nut and 'tentioners' to fit the new sprocket? Does the bike have to be on a stand? Or can I get the old one off and the the new one on without touching the rear wheel? Nah, didn't think so.

I haven't got a torque wrench, but I suppose that's a must? Torque settings anyone?

Any other advice most welcome!

19,0 Nm torque.

I would loosen the rear axle, and tensioners. With enough slack in the chain you should be able ot lift the chain off of the front sprocket and then remove the sprocket.

Mine didn't require heat or a gear puller and just slid off.

I don't take a torque wrench out on the trail so I get a feel for the torque by using a spanner (or socket), make a mental note of the starting angle, loosen the nut & then tighten it back to the starting angle of the spanner. Repeat a couple of times until you're comfortable you'll remember the force needed. Easy.

Thanks but I think that is only a plate to bolt to the plastic factory rack.

I'm going to attempt to make my own rack, and pannier holder & panniers. I'm also going to look into making my own crash bars and engine guard. If I were to buy all these things it would almost double the cost of the bike! I really don't know how these manufacturers can charge so much for such simple things made of basic materials. I don't mind paying a fair price but the prices I've seen are outrageous.

Probably excessive, but it's my first brand new bike in a long time and I was susceptible to old wives tales and other rumors.

6'4" 250# coming from a plated XR650R and LOVE it! Strada, but Terra-fied when I want it to be. I've got 5K on the odo since May riding the fine-for-me-stock-seat and planning to ride the UTBDR from Washington State next year.

Nice! Any modification done like bars/riser or does it fit well in its stock form?

None at this point. I haven't found a reason to change...but I'm not a guy that stands up on my motorcycle for 100 miles at a time....maybe a mile at a time.

Weave only improves a little if I load up my tankbag with a full camelback and other weighty stuff, but will not go completely away.
Just about to spoon a set of Karoo 3 on, will install and balance myself, maybe that will make the difference.
Check the triple tree nut. Then, with no weight on the front wheel, loosen the axle and pinch bolts. Loosen the lower triple tree clamps. Wiggle everything a bit and start tightening in this order. Axle bolt, pinch bolts then triple tree clamps.

Jeez, 19NM? I could nearly do that by hand. Oh well, a dab of locktite will ease my mind.

How tight should the triple tree nut be?

Is the triple tree nut the same as this spec in the workshop manual?

No, it's not. However, doing one your own is always the better choice.
