Help installing chain and sprockets - May 25, 2009, 02:53 PM

As the title says Id like some help installing a chain and sprockets.

I dont have the tools to break the chain or the impact wrench to take off the front sprocket. Ordering the stuff tomorrow. Depends on when it can get here. Kneedraggers has the kit for 245, scottsperformance in Ca has it for 210 with free shipping, so its $50 cheaper but will probabaly take another few days.

Have to have it on by Wednesday night June 3rd.

Im happy to pay and provide beer, and wont stand idilly by.

Im in Hoodbridge and would prefer closer, but can ride to where ever you are of you can come to my garage.

Id take it to a shop and lax, but spending has run rampant recently and Ive been hemoraging $$.


Thanks!!!
Brad

i cut the chain off with my trusty cut off wheel. the chain i used had a clip on the master link but the plate behind it was a really tight fit so i pressed it on with a C-clamp then put a little socket over the master link studs to press it on more to the desired depth to fit the clip on.
if its a non clip link then you need the chain tool.
i just got a kit from MFI for my 05 636 for $210

Which kit?

Im lookin at the AFAM/DID ERV kit.

However Im tempted to save the $60 and go with a RK/Vortex kit, last one lasted me bout 12-15K miles.

If you rent a 1/2" drive electric impact wrench and come to my place, we can do it here. I'm in Silver Spring. I just need to get my chain tool kit back from Speed3 so give me a heads up if you want to come here.

I just put on AFAM sprockets and a DID ERV3 chain. Stan55 tells me that EK makes the strongest 520 chain available though so next time I'm going with the EK. As for sprockets, I only buy AFAM or Renthal. I wouldn't waste time and money with Vortex unless I wanted to play around with sprocket sizes and wasn't sure what size rear I wanted.


How's my posting? Please direct all concerns and inquiries to DCSBN's chief content manager, Hollywood, via PM.

why do you need an impact wrench on the front sprocket???

Just use as socket....


What do you value more? Life or Image?

OK I was gonna go -1/+2, but that set up is back ordered. They have a -0/+6 which is the same ratio.

Is that nutty to go up 6 in the rear? would I be better off trying to get a smaller rear, currently I am running -1/+0.

Ups and down of going up 6 in the rear as appose to going -1/+2 ???

Chain length might be one issue going up that much.

DID chain comes with a rivet so if some one wants to loan me their chain tool Id greatly appreciate it.

BTW went -1/+1, close to my current gearing. And KneeDraggers matched the best price I could find on the net. $220 shipped AFAM sprockets and DID ERV520 chain.
