Re: What's the best sprocket combo for the street?

As some of you may have read in one of my earlier posts, I'm going to be swapping my swinger for a 954 unit which means I'll need to replace my chain, so I might as well change to a 520 at the same time. So...

I know each track has it's own better gear ratio setup, but what's the best overall front and rear sprocket selection/combination for a 929 on the street? Opinions and reasoning please.

TIA

i Have a 15t up front and the stock 43 in the back, not bad at all, a bit buzzy on the highway but nice pull through all the gears.

When my chain goes bad i'll probably go 16t up front and 46 or 47 on th back.

Trey: Why would you want to go up in the rear as apposed to staying at 15 in the front? What is the dis/advantage?

Up 1 or 2 teeth on the back. Down one in front is about equal to up 3 in back. I find 3 is too much for big bikes. Works good for 600s

Hey repsol,

I personaly think its better to go more on the back then down on the front. The engine seems a bit more buzzy when u go one down in the front, plus i want to put my stock 16t back on cause it has a rubber padding on both sides of it.

I have a 46 rear tooth gear. I love it. It pulls great with the 46 on there.

Wouldn't a couple of o-rings work in place of the rubber padding?

Hmm. I don't think so, as the rubber is incorporated into the sprocket, just to prevent some vibration and noise. I think adding O rings would add too much thickness and perhaps interfere with it's turning. I don't notice any problems running an AFAM countersprocket with no rubber padding; no extra noise or anything. I'm currently running a 15 front and 44 rear with the stock chain. I like it a lot better on the track, and it's not too bad on the street.

I think that mine is a 110 but let me check tonight it may be a 112. *I bought an x-ring chain when I redid mine.

'not too bad on the street'? What's the disadvantage of this combo on the street?

Also, can someone compare 16/46 to 15/45?
