Worn Chains

Worn chain

There are lots of opinions around about when ones chain is worn. If yours can be pulled off the rear sprocket like the one in the photos then it definitely is.

It is often a good idea to change both sprockets when you fit a new chain, this is almost definitely the case with the engine sprocket and this isn't too bad as they're not expensive or tricky to change. Rear sprockets can often be re-used and I have a way of quantifying the wear.

With flat plate rear sprockets (non-single siders) this isn't as important as they're not too expensive either. However with the single side swingarm bikes that use the more complicated rear sprocket re-using it is often fine as they do last well and are expensive to replace.
