  • New Sprockets and Chain :)

    I finally got my new sprockets and chain on, i used the did x ring, its gold so its kinda cool lol. i ordered the renthal front and rear sprockets, but they were backordered and i ended up with the sprocket specialties ultralite rear and standard front.
    I also replaced all the cush drive rubbers. wow what a diffrence. the bike seems stornger and much snappier. is it true you can gain 5hp from a new chain. i mean hp to the wheel, i know the chain wont help make any extrqa power at the motor.

            ok ok, when i get home ill take some pictures. youd think youguys never saw a sprocket before LOL. I kept the gearing i had which was just -1 in the fron and stock on the back. The thing is so snappy now that im having to relearn my wheelies. anyway, back to work, ill have some pictures up soon.

              about the gain part.
              Why is that so hard to beleive? If a new bike loses 10% to the rear wheel why can't an old chain lose 13-14%?

                You can in fact gain a couple of extra ponies if your old chain was not in the best of shape. A properly lubed and adjusted chain will let you maximize your power to the ground. While friction losses due to low grade and/or poorly lubed chains can cost you a couple.

                  Why do you think Pro racers get a new chain for every race.?

                            Yepper a fresh chain/sprockets do deliver more horseys!

                            Read this...

                            About 2 horses on the bike in question. But face it, even half a horse is noticeable....

                              That article actually shows a 8 HP gain.

                              Sorry SDTLR I took as if you didn't believe it, but I guess that would be this:
