Mine broke last year and I posted a similar question. I heard from many HCS's that broke chains.

oops was thinkng of what songs to download at the time oh well should have been miles. But when a chain breaks it can take out the chain case and damage the gears also like Mine did.

What kind of riding were you doing when it broke?

Switch to a 15 wide top sprocket and chain, with the stock 13 wide bottom gear. Stock chain is 13 plates wide.

Check out the new Team gears, forgot what they are called.....

I agree might as well go up to a 15 wide.

just took mine apart and i do alot of drag racing and im pretty rough on the throttle during the bumps, everything looks great though. i have about 1200 miles on it and all the links are smooth, no nicks in the gears or anything. make sure your chain is kept tight. tighten the tensioner bolt with your finger until you cant move it anymore and back off a 10th of a rotation. a 15 link wide would always be more durable though

At least you just broke a chain. I snapped my drive shaft off. Luckly I wasnt going that fast and it didnt take out the chain case. It was a pain in the ass getting the bearing off the broken end of the shaft.

I had something similar but I never tightened my chain and at about 1900 miles my chain was so loose that it racheted and finally bound up and cracked the chaincase open.

Toally my own fault (thought the tensioner was automatic) :frech32: :doh: but the dealer took care of it for nothing. :banana: :beerchug:

That dealer should have took care of that for you. :dunno:
