Chain and sprocket brands
« on: 26 April, 2020, 10:35:11 AM »
If this has been mentioned before  :431: I couldn't find it in the search

I'm looking to get new chain and sprockets, but I don't know or recognise the brands available  :027:

I see brands like AFAM, DID, RK, JT and obviously Honda and just don't know who to spend my cash on

Or there bad chains out there? and is there chains you would swear bye?

DID Gold X-ring drive chain and JTS sprockets, shop around and buy it as a kit.

I think the standard set up for the SC64 (MKII) is a 120 link chain, 41 tooth rear sprocket and 16 tooth front sprocket, if that is so you will need the DID530VX G&B12ZB drive chain, JTR 302.41 rear sprocket and JTF 333RB.16 (or JTF333.16) front sprocket (the RB sprocket is rubber cushioned for silent running). Double check the sprocket tooth sizes before ordering to be sure to be sure.

Mine came with a gold chain made by CZ chains. I’ve looked ‘em up and they make chains for motorcycles, cars, karts and industrial. Been going since 1933, they certainly know their chains. Bit on the pricey side but good quality.

That kit is for a 2006-2010 CBF1000 which is the SC58 (MKI). You have a 2012 (CBF1000 FAC) which is the SC64 (MKII). They have different rear sprockets, same fitting different number of teeth, the 2012  has a 41 tooth rear sprocket and the 2006-2010, the kit you've ordered, has a 43 tooth rear sprocket.

A 43 tooth rear sprocket will raise the gear ratio by 5% resulting in less fuel economy and you will be forever looking for a 7th gear.

You need this kit Honda CBF1000 DID Gold X-Ring Chain & JT Quiet Sprocket Kit Set (2011 to 2015)

Its the same price and from the same supplier Hunters Motorcycles of Newcastle. You may want to give them a ring (0191 261 8592) and catch them before they post your order. If they've already posted the order all is not lost, you can return just the rear sprocket for the correct one, might cost you £3.00 each way postage but lesson learned.
