Hi,

I have to change my sprokets and chain on XR 400


What should I take:

O-ring or X-ring ?
Steel or aluminium ?
For the chain, 108 or 118 ( i currently have 108) ?


I need help :confused::confused::confused::confused:

For information, i mainly use the bike off road and my area is really dusty or really mudy .... depend the season

Cheers

Hi KerTz.

It all depends on how you use the bike. If you are road based you probably want a higher ratio 3+ and if you are into full on twisty woods a lower ratio -3. The stock ratio is 3 (15 teeth on the front and 45 teeth on the back, 45/15 = 3).

With respect to type, steel is stronger but ally is lighter, it's all pretty self explanatory. Depends whether you want to be changing it sooner or later and prefer weight over duration.

I'll let someone else comment on the chains.

My stock is 15/40, it says so in my Honda handbook. Mine's an Australian import.
I'm currently on a 16/40 but that's slightly too highly geared, and the 16 tooth is a devil to fit to the front sprocket.

Hi,

After reading your advices and checking around i went for:
Front sprocket: 15 tooth iron
Rear sprocket: 45 tooth iron
Chain : 108 x-ring

I ordered a full kit on internet and now waiting to get it


Thanks again for your advice :thumbright::thumbright::thumbright:
