    • Karl Waldron knows

    • what do u think lads..

    • Mark what do you have to do every 3months? Chain and sprocket or bearings

    • Karl Waldron is Mr Grom,

    • Karl Waldron every thing bud..bearings ..sprockets and chain..all in past 3 months ..this is second time..im puting on a stronger chain and difrent sprockets on to see if make diff..

    • Mark bearings is normally the spacer in the wheel is the wrong size which causes issues with the bearings.... Chain and sprocket I could only put down to being the wrong chain Lube! I've done 6k on one of my chains

    • 6k on a chain?? Is that it?

      I'm expecting to get 20k out of mine.

    • Christopher good on ya if you can get to 20k on a 420 non oring chain

    • Is that the standard chain?

      I'm just comparing miles in comparison to other bikes... or is it apples vs oranges?

    • Christopher the main engine bearings on an Msx last 28k most of these chains are screwed in 3-4K lol the standard chains are did but don't have orings like bike bikes and are thin which means they wear out 10x quicker

    • Holy shit, didn't know that.

      Thanks for the heads up, I'll keep em checked and oiled ;)

    • Christopher motul c4 chain Lube I found is brilliant on all chains

    • Cheers Bro, just brought some.

      Ta

    • I always swore by the wurth stuff - zero chain fling
