I need to raise the ratio a bit. Will it fit?
try it or ask a dealer.
looks pretty tight, I would have my doubts ..
I just put on a 16-tooth sprocket. It's not cush-drive (maybe its for an XR600R?). It's a tight fit, but it does fit.
None of them come with cush drive.
my stock 15-tooth sprocket has some sort of rubber insert ... must be a cush-drive, of a sort Ive never seen before ..
Its not an insert, really, its a little rubber bonded to the sprocket to help quiet the noise of the chain- I think.
It might cushion things a tiny bit if it actually holds the chain rollers off the bottoms of the sprockets, but not by much.
Dave is right, it is simply for noise reduction. I doesn't reduce the load or wear on the sprocket/chain/countershaft whatsoever.
OK, thanks, I was trying to figure out what the heck it was ... duhhh, .. once again, modern technology jumps up to bite me in the butt
Modern technology? Thought you were talking about an XRL...
Id be very interested in your findings regarding the 16T.
I need higher gearing and would definately fit one if the chain doesnt rub the cases.
A 16 tooth will work fine.
So was the conclusion on this that a 16 will fit? If so who makes a 16 that will fit the L? Has anyone actually put some miles on with that size?
where exactly would i go about finding a 16 toot front? i have never seen one!!!!!!!!! it would be great on the street.....totaly suck in the dirt.
