Tiger Sport cushioned JT Sprocket
« on: 13 December, 2018, 03:19:29 PM »
I wasn't aware JT were now doing these with the cushioning.

Go on, tell me they've been doing um for years.

That's a new one on me, I thought only Ognibene did the 'silent' sprockets.
The last one I changed was on the Sprint, I wanted a silent one but couldn't find one in stock, so ended up with a plain JT.
I hear (see what I did there?  :018:) there's not much difference.

Handy price, I bought my last new spare with washer for 10 off the Greek fella who used to be one of us, he sold his TS & moved on.

I change the front one soon as it starts to look a bit worn.

Does the JT front sprocket last as good as OE? Dunno who makes OE sprockets. The chains on all my new Triumphs have been RK.

OEM front sprocket is made by Sunstar, rear one by Afam.

Ok thanks m8, Sunstar, I thought they only did the brake discs.

Just be aware that if you are using a cushioned front sprocket you MUST use a peanut shaped chain link not a straight sided link. I know most are peanut shaped now but in case someone happens to order a chain that isn`t.  I wrecked a chain and the cushions on my old FJ1200 that way in less than 1000km. The cushions will try and lift the link off the sprocket as it goes around if it`s a straight side but there`s just enough clearance on a peanut link.

Oh well in for a penny...
Just ordered one. Already have C&S in the garage waiting to go on between Christmas and New Year.Remembered that the last time I used a "plain" front sprocket I said never again.

Reckon its about time. I adjusted the chain yesterday because I needed to. Too cold and I didn't have the time to do the whole job as I'm planning to change the rear disc as well which means I may as well do the bearings at the same time.

I'm guessing a peanut link is a spring clip type?
All the riveted links I've seen have identical side plates to the rest of the chain.

I think peanut link refers to the majority of chains which have a thin waist between the pins. 
Almost a figure of 8 shape.

The other type of chain has parallel sides between the pins like an oval race track
