Hi all. My chain has self tightened and there are quite a few ****** in it . Ive cleaned and lubed if quite often but i think everyday winter riding is cause of this. Ive got to take it to a garage today.. What kinda price should i be paying for a new chain and labour?
Thanks.

Well if you are changing the chain, you will probably want to do the sprockets at the same time.
I paid about £150 I think for my chain and sprocket set, fitted, using Renthal parts.

The OEM parts are actually MORE expensive, and not as good.

Although if you are confident doing the job yourself, which isn't too difficult, it can be done for about £90 I believe.

The Renthal rear sprocket is pretty much the best you can get, and I believe they also sell a chain. DID also do some half decent chains for our bike.

Not quite sure how you come to that conclusion. The OEM kit is about £107 (not fitted), but comes with a good quality DID o-ring chain with split link. If you've had Renthal alloy sprockets fitted, they might look very flash, but they won't be as hard wearing as the OEM items.

You just said it yourself. It looks nice :D
And it's probably lighter, or something....

I'd be a bit weary there mate, how long have the sprockets been on the bike....fitting a new chain to worn sprockets will increase wear all round. Check to make sure he is fitting a chain equivalent to the OEM, either O-ring or the newer X-ring.
