Motion Pro Chain Alignment Tool
Made riding smoother
Royal Enfield is known for its poor quality and appalling service. These guys just cannot solve the chain grinding noise problem. Talk to them about chain alignment and they'll look at you like "What the f**k are you talking about?"
There are other ways to align the chain - very easy ways, and accurate ways, but on those bikes where its easy to measure the distance from the swing arm to the rear axle with no mechanical parts to disturb the measurement. We are talking of World War 2 machines here - On a Royal Enfield, thats not possible. Motion Pro Chain alignment tool comes to the rescue. I aligned the chain myself and with so much ease. I showed Royal Enfield how its done using this simple tool. Everyone at the service center gathered around in amusement - WaDafaq is this thing? Its a chain alignment tool dear.
My rides are smoother. Chain life increased. Money saved. A peanut priced chain alignment tool did the job for me.
Yes, I recommend this product. Just a caution - store it well, its still a delicate rod that could, on its own weight, bend and deliver erroneous results. Store it such that the rod is vertical.
Ok, I love Royal Enfield. Its a classic. World war era machine. And no bike sounds quite like it.

Bought it out of curiousity but after comparing its result to a direct measure to the swing arm...I could have done better by eye...save your money

Was worried about receiving this item in functional order due to other sites reviews ppl complaining about packaging and pin/rod being bent but when revzilla ships an item they do package it well I needed the tool it served it's purpose as intended for a reasonable price would recommend for anyone doing a chain install

Nice tool. I have a 41t KTM by Supersprox. Tool along with axle blocks with space mark make a chain alignment a quick and easy process.

The marks for alignment on my bike are not that great, this tool was easy to use and worked great.

Well made, but didn't properly fit NC700x stepped sprocket.
Quite simple design and well made however, it did not fit my sprocket very well, making it almost impossible to use for alignment. My NC700x rear sprocket is stepped down in thickness just below the toothed area for the chain. The design of the alignment tool's "mounting points" and the tension screw (on the opposite side) just barely contacts at the stepdown transition, making it almost impossible to get it properly positioned, in order to align the sprocket. A better design required to fit my sprocket (and maybe others that are stepped down in thickness just below the toothed area) would be for the tool's inner "throat" to be about an additional 1/8"- 3/16" deeper placing both sides of the alignment tool to tension against the sprocket below the stepdown point. After 8 or 10 attempts to mount it, I barely got it to hold to confirm alignment. Bottom line, I had previously aligned the sprocket using a metal straight edge, prior to using the "Motion Pro" unit. Due to the problems getting it properly positioned, I would not trust the Motion Pro unit with this style of "stepped down" sprocket
