is this pin supposed to go behind the brake pad(like it is now) or does it need to go in front
Buy that tool or try the string method that I'm not even going to begin to try to explain. That pic of the vortext sprocket is what happens when you combine a poorly installed chain and a bad rear tire alignment! Teeth are GONE!SperosSV650 said:damn. so what should i do to make sure that its perfect
I would say definately put it behind... in front would put it against the rotors! NOT GOOD!SperosSV650 said:is this pin supposed to go behind the brake pad(like it is now) or does it need to go in front

$22 is cheap for a tool that is as usefull as it is!!!

yes. and you know what. i bent it trying to put it back in. :bonk: so now i need to get just that part on monGas Man said:So what's up with your chain? Does it have a removable master link?
i will keep that in mindGas Man said:Yeah those aren't any good either... I hate them. Don't mess aronud with non-suffiecient parts on your chain. The chain will come off at a very bad time and cause TONS of damage... take my word for it.
Lessons learned the hard way can really benifit the ignorant.
read up. i took off the tire to get it replacedjeeps84 said:So why did you remove the chain? :scratch:
You don't have to remove the chain from the bike (just the sprocket) to remove the wheel.SperosSV650 said:read up. i took off the tire to get it replaced
haha. yes you do. well you dont have to remove it but you have to unhook it. the reason i took it off was i cleaned it with gas to get all the shiat offjeeps84 said:You don't have to remove the chain to remove the wheel.
thats the one that just came with the bike. i was thinking about doing that for my next chain. but read my last post and you will see why i took it offGas Man said:I think what Jeeps is saying is that you don't HAVE to remove it. It may have made the job easier for your POV but the need wasn't there. Plus you have to understand that most of use the replaceable links and no the removable master links. That is because they the replaceable ones are more reliable and stronger. With those you can't remove the chain w/o cutting it.
whats cheap. and do you have the plastic cover that goes over the small front sprocketSVupON1 said:WOW!!! That's alot of work ya did there! I wasted a brand new chain when I tore the SV apart. I just put a brand new chain on my SV when I went to the GAP earlier this year and I couldn't get the chain off, so I took a REALLY BIG chain and bolt cutter from work and cut it off. That chain was SO hard to break.
Oh and SperosSV650...I have a Suzuki SV650 service manual I'll sell you cheap. This is an actual suzuki manual and it helps SO much. I was able to tear my engine apart and put it back together..that's how well the manual helps.
:iagree: :withstupi :iagree:Gas Man said:Get a spray bottle to spray your cleaner... and then get a grunge brush like I have for sale in my ebay auctions. Buy mine and I'll get it to you fast!
Plus only use gasoline if its a non-o or x ring. Otherwise the gas is too harsh on the rings. Use kerosene! It is a oil itself and will do the job just as well.
Yes I do!SperosSV650 said:whats cheap. and do you have the plastic cover that goes over the small front sprocket
The new chain I had to cut off, and I still have the front oem sprocket that's in pretty good shape.SperosSV650 said:do you have new sprockets and a chain
