chain sprocket holes

I need the width of the chain sprocket holes and the distance between the outer edge of the holes to the outer edge of the chain.



Thanks.

You don't own a G310R yet and have a special project in mind ?
Else if you have the bike what is preventing you from figuring out the measures by yourself ?

I've got an offer on an alarm lock, so I wonder if it'll fit. The shackle is 16mm thick.

Winblows,
Żou can use your alarm lock, with a shackle from16mm thick, through your front disc brake.
I use a Kryptonite disk lock which is also (almost) 16 mm.

I'll prefer to lock the chain sprocket hole. Front wheel with a lock in the front disc brake is easily and quick to replace.
The lock I'm looking at is an Oxford Boss Alarm Disc Lock (approved by Thatcham Vehicle Security, SBSC Intygad Produkt) and I wonder if the 16mm version will fit the chain sprocket hole?

Due to the design of the sprocket with sprocket holes and nuts being near the outer edge, it is very difficult to get a chain oiler in the right place despite Scottoil having mounting instructions for the G310R on their website.

Thanks.
Dimensions you want are
(1) width of the chain sprocket slots = 10 mm
(2) distance between the outer edge of the holes to the outer edge of the chain = 23 mm approx

Hope that helps

By the way, something else that may be needed is the width of the chain - it is 21 mm

Mine works fine, I followed the Scottoiler instructions and all working ok with no issues and dripping oil in the middle of the chain and spreading out
