Why do Ariel primaries get smashed by chains letting go.?Ive never seen any other bike with it happen,and Norton twins even 750s had the same 1/2" chain.Of course ,they had steel primaries.But Ive also never seen a BSA,Matchy or Tri 650 case smashed.It seems common in the fours too.Why?
That single row chain is doing a big job. Only use a good quality chain and a 1/2 link often has to be used which isn't a good idea. Split rollers are a no no . They end up in the bottom of the case in large numbers. Nev
A case of tired chain and not enough lube,had great difficulty getting cases oiltight,so just sprayed sticky lube on it each time I went out on it.Obviosly wasnt enough.Have brand new chain now with no half link involved.Will try and get cases oiltight when I sort it.
