Can someone please explain to me why the sprocket is not rigidly bolted to the rear wheel. i.e. What's the purpose of the Cush Drive? Why the rubber groumets?

Seem's to me that you'd loose feel for what's happening under you arse. But, I know it's there for a purpose, I just don't understand what it is "vibration???", from where? Why isn't it on the front??

Cush.... short for cushion. It protects the drive train kinda’ like a little shock absorber.

Correct, but to be more specific it's there for the trans output bearing.

So if I'm changing my rear sproket (no quick change carrier or anything) do I need one? Does it come with sprokets? How much?

Re: (galaxy)

Mr. Galaxy,

Head over to http://www.ducati.ms. There's an article in the "Hall of Wisdom" on how to change your rear sprocket out - includes pictures. It'll answer your questions.

In short - you transfer the cush drives to the new sprocket. Make sure your sprocket has a feature to keep the cush drives from backing out.

Re: (erik996)

Who's that dude at the end with a funny name. Sound's kinda familiar.


Oh, and I'll have you know, I put grease on the outside of the rubber groumets to protect/preserve the rubber. Ha Hahh! yea, I knew that.
