Blimey! I never looked in there, that is something I didn't expect.

yeah it's not the most easily accessible bit of the bike! Might be a red herring but we'll see; certainly there is a lot of slack and front to back movement of the chain so well shot

So i got the old chain off, and the sprockets and put the new chain and a spring tensioner on - took me a while to mull it all over and settle on a plan; I was going to split the endless new chain and add a link to avoid taking the sprockets off but decided to bite the bullet in the end - it wasn't so bad, just a confidence thing as its not something I'd messed with before. A fiddle of a job though, putting them on as a set with chain in place takes a few attempts. i remain skeptical about the longevity of the spring tensioner but we'll see I guess.

Have only had a short test run and the throttle is quicker to respond and she ticks over more evenly. Not sure about the vibes, need to go for a decent run. Pics below;

That's a big chain.
