MARK’S THREE TOP TIPS

Practical Sportsbikes (UK) - - On the Bench -

01

One of the eas­i­est and cheap­est ways to trans­form the char­ac­ter of your bike is to fit a dif­fer­ent size gear­box sprocket. If you stick to the front sprocket you won’t even need a new chain.

02

Don’t think you need a 520 con­ver­sion for your 530 chain. Yes, it’s lighter but it will wear faster and you aren’t gain­ing than much power.

03

Keep­ing a chain clean is as im­por­tant as keep­ing it lubed. Grit gets into the O or X-rings, lets the lube out of the pins, cor­ro­sion gets in, then the chain is scrap.
