Great writeup, ended up going with the factory setup. Wanted to go with these sprockets but they were a bit out of my price range

Re: Definitive: Chain & Sprocket thread........

I'm over 50k on OEM 530 chain & sprockets and doing some checks. Definitely worn, but considering mileage still in remarkable shape and will be purchasing 530 weight OEM chain and sprockets (stock gearing of course) again.

Quick Chain Question: Are the pins hollow or solid ?
Quick Front Drive Sprocket Question: Any recommendations for securing it or is 65 Ft-lbs, lock washer, and a *tiny* dab of red-Loctite enough?
Quick Chain & Sprocket Kit Question: Precisely what parts are included, besides the chain and sprockets? Is it beneficial to go after chain guides or other parts?


Backstory:
Went down on a long strip of ice a couple of weeks ago... mostly cosmetic damage (not a scratch on *me*) but since I was off the saddle, did a lot of "by the way" stuff.

The manual details specs for chain slack. Side-to-side slack was still good... can't get it anywhere near the tire but all the OEM chain guides are still installed and in decent shape. Vertical slack was on the high side. Even though it was in neutral (allowing front sprocket to rotate) I wasn't comfortable with the amount of movement at the top of the chain when pushing on the bottom. Everything still assembled, from the right side of the bike, looking through to the bike to the left side, I could see the front sprocket...

I grabbed the chain and confirmed that it was the sprocket that was rotating. It being in neutral, this can be expected, but I also notice a tid bit of wobble on the sprocket. I pushed the chain out a little bit and saw the sprocket move with it. Hmmm. Grabbed the sprocket itself and wobble, wobble, wobble. Okay, that ain't normal.

To get access to the front sprocket, removed the middle left side fairing, unbolted the lower fairing but leaving it attached at the very bottom. Unbolted and removed the coolant reservoir. Managed to unbolt and remove the sprocket cover without having to disassemble the shift linkage.

Well that explains it...

Lucky dog. This was caught in time that no noticeable damage has been done. Threads look okay but I'll know for sure when I get the replacement nut and washer.

Quick Chain & Sprocket Kit Question: Precisely what parts are included, besides the chain and sprockets? Is it beneficial to go after chain guides or other parts? Usually in a kit, you get a chain, a master link, a front and rear sprocket. At 50K miles? May as well do the chain guides. They are not expensive and you won't have to do them again.
