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!

Peace

However, if the sprockets are older than the chain, the sprockets should have been inspected for wear during the last chain swap. If the sprocket(s) are currrently showing some wear, then I advise on chaging out the worn sprocket(s) now before they cause unever wear on the chain. :twocents

I'm just trying to see what You all are rolling on in the 55 series that's all..

Currently running the Pilot Power 2CT's. The rear tire clears the track bodywork underneath (Tromex brand, the ones off eBay. So far so good I must admit...), and is about .75" away from the front of the swingarm. I put some tape on the swingarm and ran the bike up to ~130mph before Sunday to check if it'd rub due to tire growth, but it didn't appear to be an issue.

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.

Currently, I'm running Michelin Power Race and they will slightly touch the bottom rear fairing when on the kick stand. Once the bike is upright, it clears the fairing without a problem.

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.

Hey PathfinderJr,


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...

Peace Maverick

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!

RVTMAVERICK 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....

Peace

CBR400RR Most run 15/41

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.
