Chain

Post by nick280 » Thu Aug 20, 2015 7:33 am

Hello,

I've just noticed this morning 1 of my x-rings has snapped on my chain. I'm planning a trip to Scotland on the bank holiday weekend which should entail 1000miles. Should I try and get the chain replaced before I go?

Cheers
Nick

Don't take any chances with anything. You could be stuck in the middle of nowhere with no signal being eaten alive by midgeys.

I kind of thought as much. Don't fancy getting stuck near Durness.

Just quickly looking, do companies not stock chains, over 5 days for delivery! PITA.

Tried M&P on ebay?
They are usually pretty quick, the other option you have is buy a spare rivet link and replace that link, if it just the x ring rubber it should be fine the rubber is only used like a cush drive and holds oil in, if you have a chain oiler it'd be fine, to be honest i've never even looked at my chain in that detail :lol:

Cheers for the advice fellas.

I only noticed something was hanging out of the chain so I had a closer look. It was the xring.

I've managed to get a chain from intobikes, should arrive Monday. Ordered the AFAM XHR 525. Ordered new sprockets too from Jim Aim, they should come tomorrow. 16/42. New tyres on Monday too. It's been an expensive couple of days lol.
