Missing sprocket teeth!
« on: September 03, 2019, 11:38:50 AM »
I literally keep my bike in show ready condition at all times. So, I was very embarrassed and shocked to be told by the shop that I had 4 1/2 teeth missing out of my rear sprocket. They discovered this on the Dyno when the bike vibrated. I literally wipe down the back wheel before every ride and I canít believe I never noticed the missing teeth. Anyways, he said it was due to sprocket being aluminum and the chain being too tight. Iím kind of in a quandary because with the turbo and all the torque youíre supposed to keep it fairly tight . Iím certainly going to back off on the tension a little bit this time around.

 Yep, aluminum definitely definitely not up to the task 😳

So happy this was discovered on the dyno and not on the street. The best chain and sprockets money can buy are cheap compared to a left leg amputation and all that goes with it.

Dang, that bike just keeps on going and going. Your bike may be the most impressive example of how long a Busa can last.
