playfull sprocket

PostAuthor: fleaflop » Wed Aug 14, 2019 11:40 pm

Hi,... I cleaned my chain for the first time today on a 2000 Virago XV250 and all was well except the front sprocket was playful!

By that,... I mean it had lateral play on the top and bottom of the sprocket,... not so much on the sides ( 3 and 9 o'clock).

At 12 and 6 there was about 1/4" of play towards and away from the bike.... Is this a normal condition to adjust for chain movement?

Thanks much,
pete...

Howdy!

Welcome to VTF.

sadly, I have no hands on with the xv250, but there are many here that have and they will chime in.

>>> https://www.mrcycles.com/oemparts/a/yam ... ansmission looks like sprocket (#26) has a 'polar' attachment (12/6) which could allow some lash @ (3/9). :con:

recommend you get a good service manual, they can be very helpful.
