I haven’t ridden for a while but now that I have an empty nest I just purchased a 2005 DL1000 with around 45k miles. As I don’t know what maintenance has been performed and it needs a new rear tire, I’m going to replace the chain and sprockets as well. I already ordered a spacer from AdventureTech and I am going to a 530 chain, RK Racing Chain GB530GXW 114 link. Realistically 90 to 95 percent of my riding will be on the street. I live in Florida near the Ocala National Forest and will occasionally drive on those forest roads. My grandson lives in Oregon and I would like to ride out there and be able to take it on any off-road trail I may find interesting along the way. I have been reading a lot about gear ratios and would like to keep the 17t front sprocket. I need help deciding which rear sprocket to get, a 43t, 45t or 46T. I know the 17/46 is the closest to 16/43. For my situation, which ratio would be best? Also, any suggestions as to which brand of sprocket? I am also a big guy, 6ft about 300 lbs.
