Howto: Replace Your Motorcycle Chain and Sprockets in 10 mins
I finally got around to picking up some SV650 sprockets and a new chain.
The old chain that just came off was actually now in worse shape than the
even older chain that came off of it a few months ago. The old sprockets
were a little beat up, so I decided to just change it all!
So here's the whole job in just about 10 minutes!

Motorcycle Sprocket & Chain Install Part 2

improperly installed master link can lead to chain failure and possible
serious injury !!!!!!!!

the sprockets with each chain. Don't bother commenting. Your comment will
