    Any idea on what is changing the link lock to the inner side?
    My DIY(s) - Sprocket bearing change | Paint job | Custom speedo dial

    Getting angry at somebody is the same as getting angry with a bike that just won't go. You should stop and start thinking.
    A good mechanic will let you watch even without charging you for it. | Riding faster than everyone else only guarantees youll ride alone.

    It is funny to know that we've been imitated and copied so well
    and surprising when we notice our mistakes are copied as well.

    A very clear,informative and detailed thread.I'm waiting eagerly for DIY on disc brakes...!!
    Just one query though, as you mentioned the chain link lock should face opposite to the direction of rotation, is there any mark or indication on the chain itself for the direction of rotation ??
    I once took the chain out for cleaning by the same method, but while putting the chain back on the bike I was confused in which direction it was initially...

    Yes absolutely, just open the chain cover and sprocket cover and with kerosene,a brush and cloth you are good to go.This is for complete servicing.

    No do not change the link lock to inner side as the lock is given outer side to easily make it fit. If you change it to inner side how will you fit the lock as it will be towards the rear wheel.

    Usually there is no direction for chain as chain can be fitted both direction. Just make sure that chain link is opposite direction to rotation of chain. Or in simple words if the lock is at the bottom of chain, then the open end of lock will face toward the front of bike and if the lock is in upper part of chain lock open end will face the rear of the bike.
