    @ Chandra | We friends have purchased 3 hornet on different date all of face the same chain sprocket problem we had to change for 6000 km to 8000 km faced this problem

    Sir, hornda service centre have commission for placing parts that's why they are fooling you. I have Honda hornet 17 k driven not changed as I am regularly maintaining. Honda service centre guy had asked me on each service your gear box damage, your chain spocket damage. But I say only one thing where it is written in this less KM I have to change

    I do acknowledge honda hornet 160r factory fitted chain are of low quality. It lasted only 6000 kms and i had cleaned and lubricated every less than a month time.lot of tight spots in the links happened.Then i replaced with rolon brand. Im done30k now still some adjustment available can d 5k more.So its done almost 30k. Honda genuine chain 6k ?

    It's not really that bad bro. Even I have driven close to 30K but still my vehicle's chain sprocket is good, it all depends how u maintain it. Do wash the chain thoroughly for every 500 KMS without fail & lubricate it using waste oil or grease or you get one more kind of grease which will be in the form of gel while applying later after applying it looks like oil. Avoid or don't use chain spray
