    Changing chain and sprockets

    Hi All
    Just looking at how easy or difficult it is for an average spannerman to change the chain and sprockets on a Rsv1000r factory . Gathering info before I buy the bike . Have done most work on previous bikes . Been looking for details on web but cannot find anything .
    Thanks

    The Chain will have a soft link that needs riveting back on have a Google ,some good clips on you tube.

    Not sure what you mean by an endless chain ..... Do you mean without a split link?

    Hi redratbike.
    Thanks again . Had a look at doing the job , looks easy enough . I was told not to buy a split link chain on bikes over 600cc but to use continuous chains . my bikes have all been around the 600cc mark.
    Cheers again

    ok see what you are saying.. As before you get a soft link to connect ..a split link is a no no for sure
