Sprocket compatibility

Ok my 2013 glee has passed 64000 miles and I figure its time I treated it to a new drivetrain. Yup, I'm still on my original sprockets and quite frankly they look like new but Ima do it anyways.

Looking online, most places advertise kits up to 2012 but very few for later models. I always thought the wee's and glee's had exactly the same drivetrain and chain length - is that true?

I'm also looking at tapered head bearings and the same issue is happening - everything stops at 2012....

I'm not sure what the difference is between a wee and glee, but Denniskirk.Com has chain and sprocket kits for reasonable prices. I recommend RK brand, I have used them on other bikes and they are long lasting.
For best results chain and sprockets should always be replaced as a set.

2007-2016 uses the same chains and sprockets.

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
See https://www.stromtrooper.com/general-...nicknames.html

Get the OEM kit, not the individual components. Competitive price, RK chain, can use the RK riveting tool, OEM front sprocket with damper ring. They come in standard, I think 120 links, length and need to be cut to your bikes length. Just measure/ count the old one. You will need to press out one pin of the new chain to correct the length.

Just one example: http://www.oneidasuzuki.com/store/pa...-sets-oem.html

No 3 or 4 chains, same sprockets. She still has the oem sprockets and they look fine (well the rear one does) but I'm going to change them all next round.

Even so, that's amazing. I put a new 14T front sprocket on at about 6K miles, it was visibly hooked at 20K, so done in a total of 14K miles. I've been lubing almost every tank full.
