8651RE: [T TBS R] chain and sprockets

      I'm about to change mine, I ordered all the parts but Triumph supposedly is
      backordered on the gasket and seal that are necessary to complete the job.
      As soon as I get all the parts together, I'll do the work and planned on
      writing it up as a tech article.

      I bought two rear sprockets, a 43 tooth (stock) and 42 tooth just for kicks.
      I bought the JTF sprockets and a DID chain. The front sprocket was $22.33,
      rears were $43.77 each and the 530V-110 X-ring chain was $101.58. I bought
      a chain breaker also ($27.95). Apparently, we need a couple of bolts, a
      seal, the gasket for the cover and a few other misc. parts. I also bought a
      new chain guide rubber thingy -- mine's been shot for several thousand

      I've been waiting for the gasket and seal for 24 days now, I'm in no rush,
      so it's ok.

      Has anyone ever renewed their chain and sprockets yet?
      I have to purchase a new set after 11,500 miles.
      Streeeeeetched out! Looks like a 2-3 hour job... Any advice? Would anyone
      change the gear ratio?
