    Rear Sprocket on a Carbie blue

    Hi mates,

    its true the blue ones are faster , but Im planing to change the rear sprocket to a 42 tooth for better fuel consumption on my 2002 Dero.

    Anyone has experience with this setup (16/42) for regular and touring ride?

    cheers

    Hi LT,

    At the moment I am running a 530 chain & sprocket setup.

    It's a Cbr929 15 tooth & a Blackbird 44 tooth rear. This enables me to run a std length blackbird chain.

    It's practically the same as the oe gearing ratio wise.

    I did fit the 16 front & 42 rear a while ago & I think it dropped the cruising revs 1000rpm in top.

    It did lose a little performance low down but for touring it would be spot on.

    I also looked into fitting a 17 tooth front (530) but the sprockets that fit the spline are narrower so would need some thin washers to take up the play.

    Cheers

    Thank you for your reply mate.

    just ordered a 42 rear JT sprocket and a AFAM chain with 110L . Once I put it on I will let me feedback also.

    just to keep you update,

    the bike now feels much smoother and even in engine brake. I do prefer much more this setup cause in highway feels more natural at high speeds.

    With my girlf each weights 66kgs the bike doest struggle much and you can only feel it a little is starting from full stop with passenger in a hill.

    imo is a great improvement for who only ride on road and make long trips.

    cheers

    After a mix of ridding 120-140kmh highway, sometimes with two up but cruising I got 300kms until lights come on.

    Well after seeing how well you've got on with it I've taken the plunge and also bought one as I need something slightly higher geared for motorways and touring. Only one up though for me

    Got the sprocket and seems really good quality. Thought that whilst I was waiting for the new chain to remove the rear wheel, get the old one off and clean it all up. What a bugger to get the sprocket nuts off. Took me longer to get them off than get the whole of the rest of the rear sorted.

    Soon as I've got the new bits fitted and have done a bit of mileage I will update the thread with my thoughts.

    Yes agree with you is a pain to remove them..., I could it only with an "air gun" . Did you order a 110L chain? Must be a smaller one...

    Possibly loctited - a small application of heat and a breaker bar drive should have easily cracked it undone.
