Re: 15T sprocket

I installed it last night. It was a breeze. I adjusted my cal box to 8.5% and verified it against my GPS this am. The speedo was .3 fast. Close enough. I am also running a 180 rear tire. I like the new response. It puts the power closer to where it needs to be, speed vs RPM. I will be able to ride it a gear high much easier through the twisties. Only 4 months left of this east coast crap.

Re: 15T sprocket

I loved this mod on my F4, but I'm not sure I want to drop one on the 954. I did it on the 600 out of necessity. I'll wait till I put on more miles and the blade is broken in before I decide if I want to do it with this bike. So far, I like the stock feel.

Glad you like it!

Re: 15T sprocket

Pczach, if you don't want quite the change of 1 down in the front, try two up on the rear. I've ridden the 954 with that gearing, and it is fantastic, a great compromise IMO.

Re: 15T sprocket

So a 16/45 setup is maybe alittle less hyper with still good power boost in low/mid? Hmmm, I've been thinking of changing the rear sprocket. I have had the 15t on and off about a dozen times. It's OK, but I always end up switching back to the stock 16t for a smoother, less hyper ride. Hyper is the only word that comes to mind when trying to describe the 15t, not the greatest but not too bad either. Just my opinion.

Re: 15T sprocket

SuperDave, if you're caught between stock and one down on the front, I'll bet you $20 you'll like 2 up on the back.

Re: 15T sprocket

Can you go 2 up on the rear with the stock chain length?

Nope---unless your chain is stretched to the max---thats why alot of folks go 1 down in the front---then you can go 2 up in the raer if you want--NOte--this was on a 929--not sure about a 954

Thanks for the info Pete! I'm not against dropping a tooth in front, I'm just not sure it's something I want to do. The 954 has tons more torque than my F4. I just got the bike a couple weeks ago, and I only have a couple hundred miles on it. When she's broken in I'll decide if I want to change the front, go up 2 in the rear, or just stay with stock.

I'm still trying to get used to having power at any rpm, and in any gear!

Re: 15T sprocket

Your smart, take your time. I also went from a F4 to a 929. I just put the 15t sprocket on and I have 7k miles. You have to respect that extra 354cc's.
