16 tooth sprocket

Greetings,

I just returned from a 4 day trip that involved far too much highway time. The engine just feels too frantic at a indicated 75mph. So the solution must be here in Stromtrooper.

Somewhere in this forum is a post about replacing the front sprocket with a 16 tooth count. I looked and could not find the all important post with the OE part number for the sprocket. I do want to retain the rubber damper and genuine quality part. I recall it might be a Gixxer sprocket? Sooo... can anybody confirm part number and bike application? Greywolf, I suspect you supplied the correct OE number. Additionally do I need a replacement nut and washer? Left hand or right hand threads and torque specs.

Thanks in advance.

I don't mind the going and I don't mind the stopping. I absolutely hate the stop and going.

That is the correct part from a GSX-R600. The nut can be reused indefinitely unless marred. The toothed washer can be reused about three times if carefully straightened and re-bent in a different place. 09167-25028 is the washer number. The book says 105lb-ft but use 83ft-lb, the spec for exactly the same nut on the DL1000. The spec is for blue Loctite too.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

16/43 works great on the Vee. Not sure how it would play out on the Wee. :beatnik:

Fabulous. On my way to the Stealer now to order it.

Yes I read the 14 tooth post. My needs would be the 16 tooth sprocket. I want to reduce the hurried feel of the engine. For the off road adventures I would go on it would be just dirt roads, no monster single tracks and dirt hill climbs.

I don't mind the going and I don't mind the stopping. I absolutely hate the stop and going.

Frantic?

When I'm at 75 indicated my bike is at 5k RPM. It's still at the bottom of the revs.

I will take the accurate speedo reading. As it is right now I rely on my GPS for accurate numbers. FYI Speedo indicated 75MPH translates into 71MPH on the GPS.

Thank you all of your help and information.

I don't mind the going and I don't mind the stopping. I absolutely hate the stop and going.
