Looks like its time to change the chain on the 700 Alp. Sprockets look ok so just the chain needed. I've not got a riveting tool so is there a chain that I can buy that uses the old split link method that is reliable?
What's the best chain riveting tool available to use and which is not so costly? There are quite a few on ebay and want to know which design is best to flare the pins.
Also, any idea about the proper outside diameter of the flared stakes on a DID 525?
the studs sometimes break off when removing the side panels, or if you have a fall. you can reconstruct them using expoxy putty (stuff you buy from b&q or car spares shop in a small tube, looks a bit likes swiss roll, you cut off what you need, and squash in your hand which mixes teh two parts...
I need to get a new chain and sprockets.
I want to buy them from the same place.
On Yen's recommendation I will get a Premium X ring chain.
I think I remember Yen saying that an AT needed 90 odd links when in fact the Haynes manual says 124. So it would be good to get that one sorted if someone...
I know I will get stick for this one. :cry:
But I run my Chain with a split link and have done since the last time I replaced it. The reason was that my riveting tool was not the right one for the riveted link provided, also they provided a split link with the chain kit.
Taking into account...
