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!

GL1800 Front Wheel Removal and Installation
I had thought about doing this to add with the video that I did previously
on how to lay the GL1800 on its side to change the rear wheel. It Was due
a front change, so I set the camera up in the garage for this. I
apologize for the video quality. I guess the lighting in the garage just
doesn't match nature's lighting for this cheap camera.
This video is for entertainment purposes only. Performance of any of these
tasks should only be done by a trained professional and the performance and
results are at your own risk.
Note that there are a few added steps if you have ABS! Check the manual!
Small floor jack with wood block
3/8 torque wrench
3/8 ratchets (short and long handled, but could probably all be done with
the short one)
3/8 "T" handle (for removing fender bolts)
12 & 22 mm 3/8 sockets
5 & 6 mm hex wrenches
coathanger or other heavy wire for hanging pads
blue (medium) thread lock
small wire brush
two small pieces corrugated cardboard
Axel bolt - 44 ft-lbs
Axel pinch bolts - 16 ft-lbs
Right side caliper bolts - 23 ft-lbs
Left side pivot (T40) bolt - 19 ft-lbs
Left pivot bolt (6 mm Allen) - 23 ft lbs
Note that the shop manual instructs you to loosen the left pinch bolts,
the front brakes and compress the forks several times to center the forks
and seat the brake pads, then re-tighten and torque the pinch bolts. I did
this but did not get it on the video. On my bike, the axle never moves from
the scribe mark doing this.

This is pretty remedial to most people, the parts and priciples for all
chain-driven vehicles are the same. This video was created to test some
new video editing software.
My SV650 had a worn out chain, budget is tight and I don't feel like
driving the car to work in the recent nice weather. I found another chain
in the garage that is in better condition, so I cut it to size and replaced
it on the bike.
The correct way to tighten your dirtbike's front wheel
When fitting your front wheel you must ensure that you do not pull the
forks out of alignment and cause binding of the forks. This is the right
way to do it. Please visit my other website here -
