01 929 clunk

I am having trouble getting my chain adjusted i get it perfect then as the wheel rolls it gets too tight then too loose. I think it is a stretched chain, But there is also a clunking when im moving slow in 1st gear. could this all be a chain problem?

Re: 01 929 clunk

You have to adjust the chain at the tightest point so that at no time can it be too tight.
If it's that bad though you probably need a new one.

Re: 01 929 clunk

What are you running currently and why do you want to change it?
I run 520 15/47 currently and have been as low as 15/48.
14/46 is a little lower than I run and I think I would find it starting to get a little too low for comfort at highway speeds.
If you're sure you want to go that low I would recommend 15/49 instead as it lifts the chain off the swingarm buffer as buffer wear can be a problem with the 14 front.

Re: 01 929 clunk

If you're running stock then 14/46 is going to feel like a huge difference :-)
Do you know anybody with a lower geared 929 you can ride?

Re: 01 929 clunk

no i dont know anybody besides my girlfriend who rides. i just want a machine that wheelies a little easier. so you think 14 46 is too much. i dont hate the bike so i dont want to ruin it.

Re: 01 929 clunk

For wheelies without turning it into a stunt bike I would think 15/47 or 48 would be more than sufficient as they wheelie pretty easily with stock gearing. If the wheelies are more important than general ridability then you could certainly go lower. To compromise maybe keep a 14 front you can throw on just for the stunt sessions.

Re: 01 929 clunk

I don't know as I cut my own chains to fit so I have no reason to consider their length or how many links there are.
If you cut the chain to fit the 15/47 nice and tight then the 14 should fit just fine.

Re: 01 929 clunk

I use DID ERV3.
The GXW is RK's top line chain I think.
