Title: Gsxr 2006 600 Sprocket and Chain Replacing - How Hard is it?
Post by: mikeK6Gsxr600 on 06/10/18 07:18PM
I got like 26k miles on her, 06 gsxr 600. I think its time to change the sprockets and the bike chain.

How hard is to do this work? can a novice Micky mouse (myself) mechanic do it himself?

thanks.

If you have a rear stand, a socket set and a broomstick, you should be able to do it.  The hardest part is breaking loose the front sprocket bolt.  You have to lock the rear wheel from moving, that's what the broomstick is for.  There are many Youtube videos on the topic.  Give it a try!

You'll also need to buy a chain breaker and riveting tool.  Motion Pro makes a good one and it'll pay for itself after the first use.

^ Buy that, then get in touch with RD Todd.  Buy him a six pack and he'll teach you how.

Ride on,
