Changed the chain and sprockets
on: April 08, 2017, 04:52:34 PM
I bought my 2015 Crossrunner with warrenty.
2 weeks ago I noticed some links in the chain are stuck

Today, the dealer changed chain and sprockets for me.


The original chain is a 525, they put in the wider,stronger 530 of the previous Crossrunner


It fits, why shouldn't it    :152:


Also changed the tires to Continental Road Attack 3

If you get some experience with the RA3 please let us know. I`m very interested. Have to change tires in a few kilometers and think about Roadtec 01 or Roadattack 3.

PR4s work well, especially in the wet UK weather but are more than good enough in the dry too. Last long as well.

I'm looking to try something different next time so will keep the RT1 & RA3 in mind.  :028:

@Lampie: why do you use a 530 chain? I have to change the chain in a few weeks and i think to fit a 525 on my 2012 CR. I will use the RK black scale chain with a black aluminium rear sprocket. When i will take a good quality chain i think i will get the same mileage as with the 530 and save a little bit of weight.

A 530 chain is the size for the CR 2011-2014
The 525 chain is for models 2015 -

the (Honda Sub-)dealer gave me one year warrenty when I bought this bike , within one week I told him,some of the chainlinks were stuck.. he ordered the chain and sprockets... or perhaps he had them in stock, doesn't matter...
when installing this new set they discovered it was wider than the stock chain.
They already cut the original chain , so they (and I) had no choise , install the 530 chain and sprockets.
Because my CR is the same build as the other VFR bikes with chain... it fits.
I don't see a problem, just have to remember it's a 530 chainset

When I change my chain and sprockets i get the ones for an ordinary VFR 800 because they are a lot cheaper than ones sold for the Crossrunner.
