Heads up with higher mileage.

Post by Joe1290 » Sat Apr 07, 2018 9:48 pm

After destroying a chain in 11,000km, I noticed my rear sprocket carrier loose. Bike is currently at 71,000km and sprocket carrier was flogged out and in need of replacement. Jar dampers replaced too.

I certainly wouldn't consider myself a hard rider and my bike is near stock, so with mods, it may be wise to be checking the rear sprocket for play at perhaps 50,000km (30,000 miles) onward. Mine had flogged out quickly between 60,000km - 70,000km. I'm now on chain/sprocket set number 4.
