I have a 07 and the chain is binding bad. Is there anything I can to fix it? Or is it time for a new chain? My rear sprocket looks alomost brand new and the front one is new have not used it yet. I clean the hell out of the chain after each ride when i wash the bike and lubed also. My ? is how long should the factory chain last. I have had the bike for almost 2 years. I ride trails and sugar sand.
Thanks

i just did a rebuild on my 05 and im throwing a chain away, it was never binding or anything, i just felt its time for a new one. i would think the sand is probably raising hell on it. can you see any visible wear, or take it off and try to wiggle the links individually?

are you sure the sprockets are in line? does it feel like the chain is binding on itself? or is it binding against one of the sprockets?

HaHa... if it were me I'd ride with that chain, but I'm bad on things some times :mhihi:

But IMO you should replace the chain and leave the rear sprocket on.
