broken chain 05 crf450

Recommended Posts

any one had their stock chain break on the new 05crf450, mine did after only a hour of riding, yes it was adjusted correctly, when the chain broke it also broke the chain guard off the case, i'm waiting to see if motoworld here in san diego will fix it

I just got a 05 too, and I'm finding out that the honda puts junk chains on their new bicks, they will stretch and wear out your sprockets, and chew up your gaurds. Get rid of it, get something like a o-ring chain. E-K is a good one, they even come in colors.

The stock chain is only there to keep the brochure weight down. Just starting the engine will stretch the stock chain... actually riding it will result in the chain chewing the frame and anything else in the vicinity.
