    ^^ the rollers/chain are not frozen or were ever frozen.
    I always oil them, have not used any chain spray till date.
    I most of the time ride in severely dusty condition & my chain is cover less.
    And also i'm not cleaning them as often.
    Have also got 2 links removed so that it can be adjusted.
    And my bike is 22.5k kms old.

    Stop using oil in them now, if you want them to survive for longer and perform better.

    You know oil's properties: it gives good lubrication, but it is a dust magnet. Dust STICKS and STAYS on it for as long as its not properly cleaned again with water and chain spray. And this again becomes a reason for frozen links and/ or faster depreciation of the chain.

    PS: I have seen a P200 with frozen links at the Anjita Bajaj SVC and the cause was said to be the same: irregular usage of oil in the chain-sprocket.


    Secondly, I couldn't make out much from the low-res pic except for a unequally worn out roller. But I think your chain play could be a problem... Keep your bike on the center stand and see if the lower part of the chain can be moved up to down for about 3-4 cms with bare hands. Get it loosened if its too tight.

    These 2 things should help if properly checked...

    chain play is good if not best. I personaly set it at 1.5 inches at the tightest part, because i off-road daily.

    Good chain sprays are available for around Rs. 250, its still better than getting chainsprockets replaced much earlier than their life...

    Ok, thinking of trying it now. Can you name a few, specially cheap (but good) ones which are easily available?

    I use a chain spray called "Release on" which I got for around Rs. 250 from Jaipur... Its good enough and does the job of keeping water and dirt away.
    I've no other such experience with chain sprays as I have started using O-Ring chains lately only.

    Motul also makes some good branded chain sprays & lubricants. Not sure about Shell though.

    thanks for all the info & help buddy, that too from bottom of the heart. Tried looking for chain sprays but got none available at local shops, will try the showrooms now.

    Hey Guys.. I am new to the thread and this is my first post on xbhp though am a member for a long time. I own a ZMR and i have completed 17000kms.. I would like to change the sprockets ( Of course after its worn out ) Can you guys with your experience tell me the best direct fit (if possible front as i read from previous posts that P220's rear is a direct fit) to make my ZMR get a better top end?? I guess the Achiever has got a 15T in front, would that fit directly? or which ones do you suggest? Awaiting your experienced replies

    Hi Dude,
    Achiever's front end most probably should not fit your bike as its not .520 pitch. Not too sure though. Secondly, you have these recommended choices to overgear your bike:

    1. Pulsar 200's sprocket which is 38 teeth.
    2. Pulsar 220 DTS Fi's sprocket which is 37 teeth.

    But please keep in mind that Karizma's chain is very long. It has 108 links. Senior Pulsar's (220/200) usually have 104 links. So, you'll have to purchase 2 chain sprocket kits: One from Karizma and other from one of the senior Pulsars. This is the info about Karizma's overgearing:

    1. Front Sprocket: ONLY Karizma's stock 13T sprocket will fit.
    2. Chain: Usually Karizma's Chain, or if you have chosen 37 teeth sprocket then maybe P220's smaller chain.
    3. Rear Sprocket: from Pulsar 220/200.

    If you can get P200's rear sprocket separately, then it should be economical enough.

    --------------
    @ All others: Guys, I have updated the first page with MORE INFO as to how to calculate the chain length and choose the correct length for your bike.
    See Post #8 on the first page for it.
