Re: What is the cause of hooked teeth

A buddy has a rear sprocket that is really hooked with the teeth hooked towards the front of the bike. Is this a chain slack issue? The chain has about an inch and a half of play in it. The bike has about 5k miles on it.

He will replace the sprockets and chain now.

Re: What is the cause of hooked teeth

Seems like that would have to be an adjustment issue with only 5,000 mi. on it. The sprockets and chain should be good for at least 15,000 mi.

Another great site to visit.

Throw off those chains of reason and your prison disappears...Peart

Ah, Aluminum sprockets. You must pay to play on the MV. Exotic bikes/parts mean more maintenance and more money.

Re: What is the cause of hooked teeth

On my dirt bike when they get hooked the chain and sprockets are way shot. 5000 miles sounds early on the street, maybe bad metal.

Re: What is the cause of hooked teeth

MV Agusta? Is that a fireblade? ;-) Is that the one with the 4 pipes under the rear seat? If so then I heard from some guy who's got one of those that he's already been through 2 sets of camshafts! He's now done over 10,000 miles.

That rear sprocket and chain sound like they are made from chocolate or cardboard. Why do some expensive bikes use such cheap materials?

So that you can bond more since you have to work on it so much
