Don't split the chain until you have undone the front sprocket nut.

If it's really tight you can chock the back wheel and lock the drive shaft in place whilst you undo it.

If you don't get this ffs ask.
I do get that. The clip opens away from the direction of travel. :) so it can't be flipped off.

Why would you need to change the chain if you have a drive shaft? :lol: ;)

The drive shaft from the engine to the front sprocket.

I'm saying nothing cause if you weren't being sarcastic you need to beat yourself throughly

Didn't the chain replacement but not the sprockets. 1. Didn't know about them and 2. John didn't say what you did and he knows about them as he sells them. It's not in don't trust you but if hes didn't want to sell them to me then there's a good chance they might be ok. They looked ok. Plus if I'm wrong. Then I'll have to get a new chain and sprockets and go through the Whole thing again. So. Did the chain. Aligned it best I think it could be done. Seems ok. Took it for a spin. Still here. Woohoo

So that would be the lay shaft then. :D

Lowest form of wit, I don't wink at everyone.

But I shall still whip myself with a piece of soggy celery. :mrgreen:

Update: Been to see John. He says that yes, he would ordinarily recommend replacing the sprockets but in this case it's a 125 and the chain costs 30 quid not the usual ton plus a bigger bike would cost. Plus I'm pleased as it might have been a bigger job for me at this time. However having done it now it would not scare me. In fact I enjoyed it. I do notice a difference. I can see tcat changing a sprocket might not be so thing I'd refuse in future either. The back brakes are at this stage a bit scary tho. lol. bit by bit. Ty guys for the great advise and I promise next time it's sprockets too. :)
