Default Chain & Sprocket replacement

Hello People, I'm new to the forum, new to not having enough cash to get someone else to get dirty so have just purchased a set of tyres / Chain/Sprocket set for my K3 (faired). Anyone know of any pitfalls I should look out for when changing the chain/sprocket set (know where I can get a manual (foc on web)/ taking off the wheels to get the tyres done.... Am pretty competent technically, but have not tried this before - jut bought X-ring Gold C&S Set / Conti Sport Attacks - thanks!

to shange the front sprocket, the easier way is to leave the rear wheel in, then you can wedge a bit of timber through the wheel and swingarm, so when you try to undo the front sprocket, the wheel stops against the timber and you can easily undo the nut. remember to get a new lock washer as well. alternatively, if you have a buddy, he can press the rear brake, which allows you to undo the front sprocket. same in reverse aswell.

Many thanks for the advice, looking forward to a day sitting on my drive next week, with a beer in one hand & a big lump of wood in the other & seeing how things pan out.... BTW, I can just keep the old chain tensioners can't I, they just need to be reset?

fourth article down titled "23/01/01 - You can now get an SV manual"

link at end (click the word here on this sentence at the end "Or you can download from this site here")

select the one you want and download.

Cheers Mark.

That'll be the Guildford Massive area then, as I say, if you need help it never hurts to ask, normal price is tea & biscuits

Cheers Mark.
