After only 8,000 miles on my trike kit for my 2012 SilverWing, I have to replace my chain, front and rear sprokets, and Motor Trike will not honor their warranty, saying, it is wear parts ! REALLY? Only after 8,000 miles ? When the warranty is SUPPOSEDLY for 50,000 miles!  Future buyers beware

Chains and sprockets, tires, belts and filters aren't covered by 99% of manufacturers. They are wear items dependent on maintenance and conditions. Cars and trucks too. Was there a defect or just wear?

After consulting with MT tech., it turns out this will reoccur every 8,000 miles. As soon as I get her home, she will go up for sale.ourshepherdschapel@yahoo.com

That's not good, most bikes get 15 or 20k at least before needing replacement.

After all is said and done, it turns out using kerosene to clean and the teflon lube was the worse thing I could have used. It allowed my chain to prematurely wear, which caused my front  sprocket to wear out as well. This was MY FAULT NOT MOTOR TRIKE. I learned a valuable lesson.....do not always trust the SO CALLED experts on YouTube.

Have you considered an automatic chain oiler? I have one on my Honda CTX 700 and it reduces maintenance to an occasional wipe to clean outer crud and refilling the reservoir. The Cameleon Plus was easy to install and maintain.
