Re: New front sprocket

So, I just got my new front sprocket (15t), and i was wondering if anyone ahs any insight for me. Is this going to be a 'tear my arms from their sockets' difference? Or is it an 'Oh that was interesting' kind of difference? Its a 929 w/ 15/43...

Re: New front sprocket

No it's not going to be that much of a difference. Mine feels little smoother, front comes up easier in second. Speedo definetly off, need jims box. But it is a very easy install sprocket bolt is 14mm, Put it in gear hold rear brake to remove bolt, rear wheel install sprocket and adjust chain I think rear axle torque is 80ft lb, sprocket like 29 maybe?

Re: New front sprocket

My friend tried this once. He ran out of gas in less than 120 miles. He normally got 130-140 before the light came on. This was due to the higher rpms in every gear he was running. He wasn't that impressed with the performance change.
