When did you replace your chain and front sprocket

I have 22,000 miles and plan to replace my chain and front sprocket (already replaced the rear with a 44T). I was just curious when other people have done it. My chain seems to catch and makes a lot of noises. First, I check to make sure it was properly aligned and then the tension. The teeth on the front sprocket didn't look too badly worn, but I would rather just go ahead and get it out of the way.

I bought a motorcycle because my wife said that I couldn't! Now I have two and she still says I can't have another one!

Hi Sharrison56,

That's a lot of miles. Better to be on the safe side.
Changed the whole set at 25K kilometers when went for 44T rear.
Stayed with 15T front. Chain to DID 520 Gold. Can't confirm the specs.

Changed out at 27,000 miles and as with yours it was starting to catch and chatter. The adjusters were practically all the way out as I waited for my new chain and sprockets to arrive.

Ride To Live, Live To Ride....no, really!
