My front sprocket is starting to hook, so I am going to swap it out. Chain and rear seem fine at the moment.

Looking on Fleebay I see lots of sprockets for the Vee but nothing specifically for V2, is it the same?

The part numbers are different.

The JT sprocket site shows the same part number for both model years, but not with a US flag on the 2014-16, does that mean the European front sprocket is different than US?

I tried JT front sprocket on mine, without rubber dumpeners, and didn't like it. Felt quite a vibrations from the engine. Swapped to Suzuki one and all good now.

What part number did you use for that? I think the OEM one is fine as well.

NM, found it. Looks like 27510-20A40

$60+ bucks, ooch.

Yes, it's not cheap. I went with 16T Suzuki sprocket for GSX-R 600 2008, part# 2751020A10 and the price was about the same.

The JT sprocket is $18. I can live with a bit of extra noise for that kind of savings. I will likely switch it out again when I do rear and chain before my next trip anyways.

JT has a rubberized version of it too (JTF520RB), but I am having trouble finding a reseller for it. The part number is not showing on Google anywhere. I have emailed them, hopefully I get a reply before end of the year.

Hold off, Bugz, if your into the 16T sprocket. I tried it sans the dampers and ended up switching back because I found excess vibration. It's around here somewhere. Let me have a look.

Yep, got it, PMd u.

I will definitely give that a try for free, thanks. :)

I installed the sprocket ToadRide sent me last night. It is a 16T and I look forward to testing out the difference from 17T. Perhaps one sprocket less is not that noticeable?

It occurred to me after removing the old sprocket, that I could have probably turned it around. The hook is mainly wear on the inside, not so much the points so flipping it around would extend the life. I will hold onto this sprocket for a bit, might get a bit more use out of it yet.

Changing out that sprocket is a piece of pie if you know how.

I'm trying to find this sprocket too. Where is it out there? :confused:
