I think what he meant was Creeper cleans every link and relubes each O'ring indavidualy after every ride then completely reassembles said chain to OEM spexs with a final over coat of cosmoline for between rides.

I'll stick with oem thank you.

I always replace the rear ally one with Sommer's steel one. The ally just melts away.

I have a Stealth one (which looks very cool) at home but was warned off using it for travelling (by a KTM dealer) as if the rivets go i'm buggered.

I've eventually discovered that what really makes the chain and sprockets last is

(i) correct tension and
(ii) a scott oiler - the only thing on my bike that's 'made in england'.

The scott makes a mess of the rear wheel but the chain really lasts a lot longer.

I think the oem rear and chain are awful. Check out what happened to the oem chain on my site (with a scott oiler) after only 30,000km!

We answered your question, then resumed sniping at each other.

Next time, we'll just get down to bidness, and ignore you and your issues. Happy?

Hijack full swing.

""From Finland comes today's proverb "I had a 640 Adventure that I really liked but couldn't live with the ascetism""

After I saw your sigline I read that thread and still had to look it up
It still doesn't make sence.

Asetism; Ascetic doctrine, belief or conduct. WTF does that mean?

Ascetic; one who renounces social life and comfort for solitude. Self Mortification, and religious devotion, A hermit, recluse
one who leeds a very austere and self denying life
blah blah blah

Eek

MARKJENN or any others running a 17t front and 42 rear. What RPMS are you getting now on highway use at 70 MPH. CUrrently with a 16t front I have about 4500 RPM. I am going to a 17 front for long trips and want to know how much change in RPM will I get.

There's a Finnish guy here (who's handle escapes me) used that line in a post. He was making making the point that the 640 Adventure is pretty devoid of creature comforts (a given, I think), compared to some other bikes like the Bavarian Manure Wagens....

I give him high points for his english vocabulary.

well 15k miles and yup it's time to revive the old debate, yet once again.

rear is fubar warn out but the teeth are all there long as life, just the root of them is really really wide. . so OEM it Will be.
the chain on the other hand I think will be a DIDxring gold (bling bling)

so the real point is well, I got 15K outta my stocker. 15k abused, unkept, dry, wet, gritty pacnorwet drive it like ya stole every day rain or shine and am fully comfortable putting stock back on.

how many miles should be typical or would you get from a sprocket/chain?
I think I done well for the way I treat it.

ps. don't even start with the "what chain lube ya use?"

I get quite a bit of mileage out of this chaing loob:




Come on now, that was a setup if I ever saw one.


Oh, are you changing the front as well?

I replaced my OEM stuff at 7k miles with Sidewinder steel sprockets and their basic chain. !0k miles later, there's no wear on the chain or sprockets.
Recently replaced front with a OEM 17 tooth to make freeway travel easier.
Do not have a tach for RPM gauge, (it's a LC4E) but it's very smooth at 70MPH, IMHO.

Most of us Aussie's use these, much better than OEM

Re pricing $1AUD is about $0.73 USD at the moment.

Some interesting points on chain maintainance as well.
