HI All

Just some info advice for a first timer needing to change chain and sprocket.
Does anyone know what tools I will need ?.
I have chain breaker/riveter and I going to get the torque wrench, I was just wondering about the socket sizes ect .....

Thanks a lot

It'll make life a lot easier if you have a Dremmel or similar.
You should grind the head off the two rivets on the chain before you use your rivetting tool.
One - it'll make life easier.
Two - your tool will last longer.
Make sure you loosen the front sprocket before you release the chain.
Sorry, haven't taken front sprocket off my Trannie yet, so unsure of socket size; done plenty of other bikes though.
A relatively straight forward job albeit can be messy.
If I recall sat here, rear wheel is 22mm and 17mm plus 12mm and 14mm spanners for adjusters.
Sit down calmly and, as it's a first time, allow yourself a couple of hours to take the occasional time to sit back and take stock.
Very satifying when down.

If you've got a dremmel (or even a hacksaw) cut through the old chain rather than using the tool.
