    Cush drive replacement.

    Well, I noticed the telltale metal shavings on the eccentric hub of the 996, so it was time to replace the cush drives in the rear sprocket.

    Not a difficult job to do, which I did this evening, but when the fuck did they get so expensive? At almost $200 for 5 of them, I was blown away, they never used to be that exe. LOL

    I think the next chain and sprockets change out will end up seeing the quick change sprocket carrier with cush drive tabs installed so that the outer ring doesn't walk into the eccentric hub again.


    Cheers,

    Rocco.

    Hi Rocco...

    I fitted the AFAM lightweight sprocket carrier to the Monster...

    That with a 520 conversion and lightweight front sprocket removed around a kilo from the drive line and was quite noticeable...

    Hey Rich,

    Yeah, I was thinking about going the AFAM sprocket carrier, but was going to stick with the 525 chain for strength, I wasn't sure if the 520 would suit the torque or not.

    Although I'll probably go up from a 14t to a 15t front and from a 36t to a 42t rear, so going up in the front may suit a 520 chain.


    Cheers,

    Rocco.

    My Hyper has a horrible clank when I rock it back and forth on the chain. I should do the same job.

    Fraser's have them in stock.

    I'm not sure about the Hypermotard, but the 996 has a 41mm nut that holds the sprocket carrier on, so you may need to purchase one (and a torque wrench if you don't already have one).


    Cheers,

    Rocco.
