TE610 = Chain and sprockets?
« on: December 14, 2011, 06:16:36 am »
I have read about TE610 chain failures with many chainging it from new - mine is a 09 and has the OEM chain that appears to be a CZ? With 10 000km on the clock should I be looking at changing it out for a new DID X-ring for peace of mind? What sprocket changes have guys tried? - would not mind slightly longer legs on the flat without too much sacrifice low down...one tooth down rear??

The CZ chain is the one with the bad reputation so I would c hange it.  They also came out with Regina chains that were OK.

No comment on the sprockets personally.  I'm happy with the gearing as is.  One of the great things about the 610 is the gearing IMO. 

1st is very low so you can chug through gnarly bits at walking pace and 6th is high enough to cruise at 130-140 without bouncing off the rev limiter.

But its your bike  :biggrin:

Just did chain and sprockets at just over 10 000km. Front sprocket was shagged peroperly rear not as bad, chain pathetic, CZ definately sucks. Chaintech (www.chaintechsa.com) sorted me out with great service. DID and Stealth the way to go IMHO.

I also have a DID 520VX, black and gold. Running 15-46, back is aluminium which sucks but I'll keep an eye on it.

I fitted the DID 520VT Narrow X-RING 120 chain from Chain-Tech, 1512-46T Stealth Tri-Metal Rear (46 tooth), and 0824-15T Stealth Front sprocket (15 tooth).

What did you pay for the sprockets if I might ask ?
