I m putting on a new gold chain, is it neccessary to change sprockets? Sprockets looks fine with 8000 miles....
totally agree...agusta01 said:Conventional wisdom says yes..change all at same time....one reason is even slightly worn sprockets will accelerate the ware on a new chain and reduce its life......its cheaper in the long run!
Nevermore said:Lots of variables determine chain/sprocket life such as chain tension, sprocket hardness, lubrication . . . oh I'm getting excited now. I always replace as a set . . . just put a 520 conversion on my R1 last month right before buying the Marchesinis. Why didn't somebody tell me OEM sprockets wouldn't fit them? Now I get to buy another set :bawling:
Thanks, now you tell me. :cussing: So I got you worried, huh? Afraid you won't be able to keep up? :stickpoke But are you getting wave rotors and titanium bolts :loser: Since I was buying gears, I ordered stock and -1 CS, +1 and +2 rears just to have a complete set.thecraw-r1f4 said:Hey Chris did you know that the OEM sprockets wont fit on the Marchesini wheels!!
BTW my R1 is now an LE as well full ohlins but with "gold" marchesini mags :naughty:

If you have a 2000 or 2001 you can get replacement front sprockets from AFAM/Talon. If you have a 2002 or later then you have to buy OEM. The regular NON MVSP sprocket is fairly reasonable.darthmvader said:FBF http://www.ferracci.com/store/cart.php?m=product_detail&p=345
I can t find the front so do I just use a new stock front sprocket with the fbf rear?
