Quick Question Regarding Sprockets

Recommended Posts

Hiya all,


As stated above, got a question about sprockets. Changing them out on my old 125, and the front sprocket seems to be out of stock at present - not going to hold my breath about it coming back in stock, looking like support for my model may have been dropped by the importer. So I've been trying to find an alternative.


This is the one that I'm meant to get:

Inner diameter 20mm

6 splines

Pitch 428


This is the one I'm looking at as an alternative:

Is there anything more to it, or should they be interchangeable? All the listed measurements match up and they look pretty damn similar so I'm hoping so. Would've just gone for it but noticed that the Lexmoto Lowride is missing from the huge list of compatible models on the second link, so wanted to check. Could be that I'm missing something obvious, could be that they just missed it off because they don't care about the poor old Lowride any more :crybaby:


Any answers appreciated, hoping to order all the parts tomorrow to get the bike back on the road asap! Doing a big clean up at the weekend then aiming to fit the new parts monday/tuesday/wednesday evening.


Cheers!

Well, I've now ordered the Lexmoto parts and they come to a grand sum of £48.97... and the current bill for the BMW is roughly 8 times that! And that's just parts, let along the bloody time it'll take me :lol: If I fix this thing up I can ride it while I fix the BMW as and when I can afford to, and then maybe I'll flog the 125 at the end of it so I can use the cash to start paying off my debts. Or I might hang onto it and use the shit bike for commuting and the BMW for getting my jollies :mrgreen:

The bolt certainly looks like one from this bike... Bugger knows where they came from though, I stripped down a whole side of the bike to try and work it out and I still have no idea :lol:

Got tools up to the eyeballs these days! All I need now is a huge pile of replacement parts and a lot of time to fit them in. I'm a cautious but fast learner; first time I do anything takes me bloody hours unless someone walks me through it, but every time after that is piss easy. First time I opened up my clutch, rebuild it, and closed it up again, it took me about 4 hours - every time after that was 30 minutes or so :roll:
