Sprocket and chain help!

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I am a new TT member and I am looking to replace my sprockets and chain on my 05' DRZ400SM after my chain mysteriously snapped :foul:

(Back story: I was riding over some covered train tracks and I felt the rear tire slip and then no power. Pulled off and found a cleanly broken chain not at the master &%$#@!!)

I am planning to stick with 15/41 sprockets and I want to confirm that I will want a 110 link chain. The big question is how much should pay and what type of chain should I get (x-ring o-ring normal?). Below are the best deals I have found I would love to get some feedback. Thanks

standard is shortest life span

o-ring is better

While its not SM we run the DID erv3 chains on all our track and race bikes with AFAM sprockets as do many other racers.

Outstanding products.

Nope.  Its a clip on connection just need a pair of needle nose pliers to place the clip.  FYI when you put the clip on grab it from the back and the most rearward piece of the chain link.  If you try to push the clip on using the farther piece of the chain link and the back of the clip you put extra pressure on the clip and it can snap.  Goodluck

If it's stock...a cutting wheel! Some bolt cutters might do the trick as well.
