Ooooops, maybe not?

Does the 45 tooth rear sprocket clear your chain guard?

The dealers here told me the productioin has stoped. Who has stock? Inquiring minds want to know.

What chain guard, that took a shit about a year ago!!!

If you want lively CP, try 16/45, all available from KTM........

Oh.....and damped sprocket......just what the dealer had, don't really care!

SE springs cheaper ?

Hey Pyndon,

any reason you went with the SE springs instead of a good aftermarket ones ?

You ended up with a bit of work after the assumption they were the same length, were they, err.. cheap ?

Also the sprockets, 1:2.647 v's 1:2.625 for final drive ratios, not much difference ? The larger 17 front will be easier on the chain any other advantages ?

Thanks JB

Yes, I could not find any aftermarket ones with as higher rate as this. I wanted a 5.7/5.8 but this was close enough and readily available.

Only $100 for the pair from KTM. I could have had some made but that would have been more $$$$$

Ratio difference not noticeable, main reason was easier on the chain and both sprockets. They both have extra teeth over 16/42

Great info Pyndon.

I'm looking at putting the SE springs in my 06 S when I go through the forks soon.

What size spacers would be needed for an 06 "S" for starters? Any ideas?

thanks

My guess would be none, the bike is shorter than mine to start with. Check the length of the springs that come out, compare them to the SE length and then figure the spacer out from there based on pre-load required etc.
