Naa, changed them on the Gsxr 600 at 30,000 miles. Now there is an oil leak... I think it is coming from the clutch shift rod because I cleaned it...

Thanks for all the input, I'll probably just do both. I'm always trying to be cheap LOL.


I have changed sprockets and chain on my old 919 before, and I own a chain tool. I got a set from sprocketcenter.com before DID with steel sprockets for $210 or so.

Next question.....should I go -1 in the front?



The real concern is chain wear, wont going one down in the front cause the chain not to last as long because the angle is tighter around the front?

Best not to go below 16 in front. You can add 2 in the rear for the same effect

Just look at your sprockets. If you have even wear between both the left and right sprockets yer gonna be fine. I suggest you get a used chain from ebay. Really cheap. Like $15 or so. This way you can get about 15 chains for the price of one new one.
And you can use your existing front sprocket and still go down one tooth without buying a new one. Just head on over to the bench grinder and grrrrrrrrrind one off.

-1 on a VFR won't cause any wear issues.
I ran that set up on mine for 20k plus miles.

I mentioned 16 because I have no idea what the stock tooth count is and he was worried about the diameter being too small.

Probably from all of the burnouts at Bucee's.
