Skyteam chain lifespan - Replacement
« Reply #2620 on: Jul 28, 2017, 20:59:49 »
Had a couple of wet runs over the last couple of weeks and that killed the chain. It was the original which is not an O ring. As previously mentioned it had done just on 10,000kms. I was surprised to see the rusty dry pins when removed, even though it was well greased. A good rule of thumb for replacement is that if you can see daylight when pulling off sprocket, it's time to change. Sprockets are still in good nick.
I was able to again turn a 10 minute job into half an hour. 15 minutes of that was attempting to clean my hands afterwards! Note to self - Wear disposable gloves next time!

Finally putting my Skyteam Ace 125 => 150 back together. Have been too busy riding my big bike, so the Ace has sat for months with piston rod waiting for the new 150cc piston and cylinder.

I didn't take photos when I disassembled, damn it. Not overly sure that I have got the dowels right. Pictures in CG manual and on the web for the Ace don't agree and the sketch I made is different again. The sketch  shows two dowels at base of cylinder, both on the push rod side. And two dowels between cylinder and head diagonally opposed, with front one on the push rod side.

How many dowels should I have below the cylinder? In what position? And should one of them have an O Ring?

How many dowels between cylinder and head and in what position?

And finally if I haven't got it right what risks do I run??

Cheers
Richard

Unfortunately I didn't keep a record!

Don't remember any o-rings; the head seems right:
