Probably a question for Biggabit ?

My friend has just asked me to help him fit a new chain and sprockets to his VFR800FW, '98 model I think. Any specific details that might help, socket sizes etc ?

With its SSA, is it possible to remove and refit the chain as an endless loop ?

TIA, Richard

Here you go sir :)



The rear wheel nuts are 19 mm and are torqued to 108 Nm

Rear wheel bearing clamp bolt 74 Nm (The bolt you loosen to adjust the chain tension pic 3 in above link)
Swing arm pivot bolt 93 Nm
Rear sprocket nuts 34 Nm
Front Sprocket bolt 51 Nm

These slave cylinder / sprocket cover bolts are 12 Nm

If you need any other torque settings just request on here and i'l look in the book of lies :angel

Ah, that's excellent, chain CAN be removed and refitted in one piece, so we can do the riveting in comfort.

Thanks for this.

EDIT And you don't even need to remove the rear wheel to change the back sprocket ?????

Indeed...

"Chain and sprocket replacement on a VFR is easier than most bikes because you don't need to remove the rear wheel."

4th post by Druid :)

Not sure why the guy in the first link did, no mention of removing the wheel in the book of lies.
