Title: Chain / Sprocket noise
Post by: 9000rpm on June 13, 2012, 12:41:41 pm
Goeie Woensdag aan almal...
my 640's chain and sprocket makes a moerse noise at about 95km's onwards   :eek7: - any suggestions of what I can use that has low noise on chain / sprockets please?

thanks a mill

They are shot, time for new sprocket 's and chain, or tighten them.

While you are at it, add a pic of your bike as well. Looks very good on your avatar (assume that is your bike?)

check the spacers on the rear axle, both on the hub and cush drive. Make sure they are in the right order

....you got 3 KTM's do any of them shoot sand up into your face? if not it might be because all 3 have the high fender... I'm sick of a mouthful of sand - I'll have to add the silly fender - test and see from there I recon, maybe I'll do a mud'fpal type jobbie :-) thanks for the compliment on the bike - my first KTM and I'll not deviate in purchasing anything other moving forward... love this bike!!!

thanks Anton - en goeie more...  :lamer: which is the right order you're speaking about? should I not have been able to notice a significant difference in the wheel / alignment if they were out of order perhaps?  ek weet hoe om hierie monster te ry - maar vir regmaak - neem ek haar maar eeder Dirtriders to en smeek vir Mario vir tyd  :thumleft:
