A65 primary chain

(1/3) > >>

DAVID.FORSYTH@VIRGIN.NET:
Has any one had any difficulty fitting a new Renold primary chain to an A65. The chain looks to be to short.  The part number on the box is 116038, it's a 0.375" pitch and it has 80 links. The clutch basket has 58 teeth and the crank sprocket has 28 teeth. everything looks right but the chain won't fit.  Any suggestions?

bikerbob:
You have the correct sprockets as they are all the same for the A65 also you have correct chain,as it is an endless chain you have to  take both sprockets off then fit the chain around the sprockets then slide sprockets on together.

Have fun with that! the woodruff key on the output shaft can be a pain to line up.  ;)

Does the chain fit with the tensioner removed?

Thanks for the help. I've now got the primary chain on. But still have problems. The key on the clutch shaft doesn't protrude out of the shaft by very much.it dosent look right. Also when I tighten the clutch centre nut the centre doesn't spin freely inside the clutch basket, it's locked up. Time to call it a night I think before I break something.
