OEM sprocket. Is this normal
Hi all, a quick question
I have just replaced chain and sprockets, I thought I would go with a replacement OEM front sprocket thought the rubber dampner was a good idea, DID 530 chain and renthal rear.
Well as you can hopefully see from the pic when the chain starts to run onto the sprocket the roller seems to sit on top of the tooth instead of meshing nicely in between the teeth. Is this the rubber dampner stopping the chain sitting right in the teeth or does aftermarket sprockets do this? I have noticed the points of the teeth are square, after market ones are pointed aren't they? Will it bed in and correct itself?
When I spin the wheel its makes quite a clunking noise as the roller drops into the grooves and surly this will cause rapid wear on both sprocket and chain. The old sprocket was hooked quite badly, but there was big indentations in the rubber where the chain had bedded in. Sorry more than one question
