At 36,400 km almost at the end of last year I visited Manmohan Motors at Mohali (Punjab) because of brake and chain issue exising in my Royal Enfield Thunderbird Twinspark motorcycle. After inspection of motorcycle I was advised by the head mechanic to replace Chain Sprocket because of worn teeths and Rear Brake Shoes as well to be safe during long tour.
Yes, there was a huge noise the moment I apply rear brake and was not applied properly as well.
Regarding Chain Sprocket it is not the first time I am replacing it. If I remember correctly it is the second time and regarding Brake Shoes yes, I have replaced it few times before.
The mechanice suggested upon query – one should replace Chain Sprocket around 15,000 km or as per requirement.
I also suggested head mechanic to check wheel ball bearings and any other existing issues in around wheels or anywhere. Many times I drive continously for 10 hours.
Wheel bearings should be replaced around 10,000 km or as per requirement – suggested mechanic.
Below are the parts replacement (with cost in rupees) done by the head mechanic in two days because of busy station.
Chain and Sprocket Kit – 1667
Brake Shoes with Shorte – 238 (119 x 2)
Brake Spring – 12 (6 x 2)
