Chain slightly touching center stand


Recommended Posts

Put a new exhaust on my ybr125 and i have noticed that the chain now ever so slightly is touching the center stand when up. I dont really know any way to make the exhaust lower therefore the metal that holds the stand away from chain down.

Chain was only tightened about a week or two ago so isnt the problem. The problem is there isnt a way to make the exhaust sit lower that i can see as it is bolted to the frame


you may have done a million miles in that week or two!!!

I have known chains to need adjusting every day when they are on their last legs

can you post pics of the problem

1. Check chain tension.

2. Check exhaust is correctly positioned.

3. Is the rubber bump stop for the centre stand fitted.

4. Put a spacer or bigger bump stop to move the stand lower to get it away form the chain.

Quality of aftermarket parts vary. Some just bolt on and work well, others need a bit of fettling to get hem right.

it might be sitting higher than the original did hence the stand will sit higher under the bike did the original exhaust have a rubber stopper on the underside of it for the stand to rest on and if so has the new exhaust also got one if not you might need to make a bracket up to go from the bolt that it mounts on to under the bike for the stand to rest on
