KTMTwins Tech Tip of the Month

Did you know that when you go up in gearing on your rear sprocket that you may not have enough slack in your chain to make the change? Don't worry, you may not have to buy a new chain to make this change happen. You can simply remove and swap around your rear chain adjuster blocks on your rear axle which will move your axle closer to the front of your swingarm. This change will leave you additional slack in your chain allowing you to install that bigger rear sprocket without having to buy a new chain. This will allow you to go one or maybe two teeth bigger on your rear sprocket, depending on the condition of your chain.
