    Transmission is dead after 25.000kms

    Is true,

    Never had a transmission chain that wares so fast, always lubricated, never hit the dirt, rarely run in the rain... but still dead anyway, don't have rust or "welded" links, just simply worn out.

    Stretching the chain isn't working anymore, you put on the specs and about 100kms the overslack is there, put again on the specs and after 100kms, the same overslack, and so on and so on... until it breaks.

    So before it breaks, just order one heaveduty kit from Afam and give it a try.

    In my other bikes I have sell them with the original transmission kit, all of them with 40k... I used to have a race bike that made 10k in track and the chain was always good to go, sell the bike with 38k with the transmission kit in good conditions. this one surprise in a bad way (and is a DID chain).

    What about yours???

    It seems that mine has the same habbit. I have done 17000kms now and streched it yesterday. Today we drove 200 miles and again it looks longer now. I grease and clean the chain after every ride so it should stay ok but this one is also suprising me. I will keep a close look at it and see how developes. Regards, Vlerk

    for what I check the chain for our multistrada is a D.I.D, but is the 525 VX2 and for heavy duty should be the 525 ZVM-X series, that is why they are worn out so fast  :172:

    I ordered a new chain and sprockets today as i ve been away this week and have now done 21,500 km on the first set wich had to be streched every day.
    The chain is streched so much now that the links don´t fit well anymore in the sprockets and I can hear the chain while riding wich gives misgear changes.
    The complete set from DC with AFAM sprockets cost 198,95 Euro´s including punch tool.

    https://www.sparks-online.eu/dc-kettingset-ducati-multistrada-950

    Mounting the sprockets and chain should be easy so i will do that myself.

    Regards,

    .. so we have 2 values 1 from 20 to 25k and 1 from 30 to 35k, the last one seams to be more aceptable.
    what is your rinding style versus road use in lenght?
    I'm suspecting that the most miles/km is use in faraway trips in open roads and the less miles in short trips in snakee roads.
    confirms??
