And the cost for both sprockets will probably be less than a custom made 50 tooth "work of art", after all.
Furtermore I found a program calculating chain length/sprocket sizes for most even wear of all parts of the drivetrain and 15/49 is a LOT better than 16/50.
A bit of esoteric maths, I agree, but after all I'm an IT person :P
Just waiting for the TR650 to come to our Spanish Islands off the coast of Africa ...
Because there is _no_ way I am going to Europe in winter - not anymore :-D

I have a barely used 50 tooth steel sprocket in my shed (off a DR350 or TT600?). I put it up to the the Terra's rear hub and noted that it will fit - not sure I would bother doing this as it is a tight fit and could require alteration to the chain guard.
