I have a 2011 Honda swing trike with 17000miles. Have been told I need to replace the sprocket and chain. I have a motor trike. Where would a person go to have that done?

ANY reputable motorcycle service shop should be able to to this work as they are all pretty standard sizes and typically easily accessible.

Would you happen to know what brand parts the trike builder used on your trike i.e. Honda, Yamaha, Harley-Davidson sprocket & chain?  If you can find that out, you could go to the same brand's dealer network.

Just to throw in a question; I don't have a Swing trike, but I would be surprised if the CVT and belt had been replaced by a chain and sprockets. If so, the belt and rollers are an easy job with fairly minimal tools that any competent mechanic can handle.

 Usually on scooter trike conversions, there a separate axle assembly for the 2 wheels with some type of differentilal gearbox, etc, a short chain connects scooter wheel shaft to new axles with sprockets, oem cvt still used.

Several members have trikes, Dale N. comes to mind.

The OP needs to contact trike makers for info on sprockets used, etc., sourcing chain should not be an issue.

Isn't life wonderful? I suspect if chain is worn so is the belt I'd replace both at the same time just get it over with. Most chain bikes I owned it was done at 20K miles about the same as SW belt.

17K belt needs replacement too.

I had a local shop, Honda of Norfolk, install the Motor Trike conversion on the Silverwing. I let them service it as well. Motor Trike is still in business and they could refer you to someone authorized nearby.

http://www.motortrike.com/trikecompany.aspx
This is Motor Trike's web site. You can go there and put in your zip code and they will tell you what dealers are in your area. Just click the "Dealer Locator" button at the top right.

My 08 SWing has the Motor Trike conversion on it. I've had it for about 4 years and haven't had any problems with it. It still has the OEM drive belt but the chain and sprockets are part of the trike kit. If I was you, and this is just my opinion, I'd have a Motor Trike mechanic do the work on it. Use their web page, find a local dealer that's authorized to do the work and check with them.
