VERY Important: Just remember NOT pull the clutch Lever once you have the slave cylinder off! Once you have reinstalled everything, then Ofcourse you are good to go.. ... OH Yeah,.. FWIW... Piece Of Cake JOB!

And yeah, for the pretty twisty track of the 1.7 portion of MSR-Cresson, the 15/42 gearing seemed great. I'll be headed to Texas World Speedway on Memorial Day, so we'll see how it fares on a more open track. I'm thinking the 15/42 is where I'll stay, especially as how this bike will still see the street every now and then.

I've also ran Bridgestone 002 Racing and those clear the bottom of the fairing by a fraction of a millimeter. Same thing, once the bike is upright, it won't touch the fairing at all.
They don't make any more 002's, they're up to 003's. I imagine the profile is similar.

|robfromsc||not to totally thread jack this but.... im thinking of changing my front to a 15t. the chain has about 3k on it, but isn't showing stretch(reading the swing arm label) and i know this is supposed to be a no go, change the whole set-up. question is has anyone ever changed just the front and not the chain and rear?|

And this goes for you too PathfinderJr, what Brand and model tire please?
I'm just trying to see what You all are rolling on in the 55 series that's all..

FWIW and or FYI, changing the front sprocket from 16 to 15 IS = to of a change closer to 3 teeth bigger but to be more exact the change IS = to 2.666666 teeth bigger! Your final drive gearing, from 16\40 or 2.5 to 15\40 is 2.6666, this is = to a change that under NORMAL Circumstances YOU Would MOST Definitely would have noticed a differance while pulling away from a STOP... However You have installed a Rear tire that IS Quite a bit bigger in dia., So I would say with this in mind.. Your gearing change is = to +\- nothing
Had You kept running the 190\50 You WOULD notice there is just NO Way you wouldn't... LOL
So NOW because of that Big Aszz tire of yours.... You SHOULD get atleast a 42 if not a 43 rear sprocket! This WILL Help you now while Also keeping the 15 on the front.
I Hope this Helps...

|goodtago||Thanks a lot for all of the insight. I think I will have to play around a little bit to see what I like the most. This really helps!|

15/41 is the best set up.. i went through the 42 set up... too much.
do go to 520 chain while you at it.
|05-06-2008 02:53 AM|
ROUGE states that dropping 1 in the front is nearly = to upping 3 on the rear... I don't want to jack with the swing arm distance too much...
BTW, I'm running 190s
|05-06-2008 01:40 AM|
Right now I'm running 16/42... However I also run 16/40, 41, and 43.
It's so easy to play around with the final gearing like this.. I say... Why Not Play!?
I'm sure Scott will not have any problem selling you "EXTRA" rear sprockets....

|PathfinderJr||15/42 with a 190/55.|
|05-05-2008 11:12 PM|
|CBR400RR||Most run 15/41|
|05-05-2008 09:35 PM|
|thatkindasux||i also run a 15/42/520, its a bit steep, great for around town etc, but if you want better gas mileage and lower highway RPM go for a 15/41.|
