Sprocketes and chain for 2016 AT in Cape Town
« on: November 27, 2019, 03:39:32 pm »
Has anyone recently replaced their sprockets and chain in Cape Town? If so where did you go and what did it cost you.

I buy from Trac-Mac or Acesports.
But normally get the OEM front sprocket from the dealers instead of an aftermarket one

Are larger rear sprockets easy to come by?

I changed the front on my previous AT and I think it messed with the speedo accuracy

Any change with sprockets will change the speedometer reading , you will need to check the difference against a known reading , GPS or another bike , changing one or two teeth on the rear won’t make too much of a difference , bear in mind that a change of 1 tooth front is equivalent to about 3 on the rear .
