Teething troubles sorted
There is no reason why any motorcycle has to put up with a worn sprocket and all the associated problems they come with, at least not when Talon Engineering’s range covers all sorts of dirt bikes. The one pictured here is for a Bultaco Sherpa T and is a 39 tooth one – though other sizes are available to allow you to fine tune your gearing to suit your local conditions.
It is a fascinating thing to watch sprockets being made, well fascinating for someone not in engineering, as blank discs are fitted to machines and teeth are formed in seconds. Some years ago, CDB visited Talon’s place in Somerset and watched the whole process happening from start to finish, very entertaining and when the Talon logo is lasered on the finished item in less time than it takes to say ‘lasered on’ well… wow. What more can you say about a sprocket? The bolt holes line up… it is a thing of beauty… fitting a new one proclaims you look after your bike…
WHAT IS IT? It is a replacement rear sprocket from Talon Engineering. WHAT’S IT COST? Depends on the make of your bike. WHERE DO YOU GET IT? Your local Talon stockist, visit www.taloneng.co.uk to find out where.
