sprockets

Recommended Posts

what is the beat rear sprocket for the money? I'm going to step down the number of teeth so i can get going just a bit faster on the freeway. just because everyone here drives so dang fast. I'm thinking of going with a 41 tooth sprocket. so what do you think?

I use ironman stainless steel sprockets, they aren't cheap but will last a very long time. :thumbsup:

I went to a 41 on the rear of my "S" for the same reason. Now I can take it to 70 on the speedo and hold it all day. Any higher feels like its reving it to high and I don't like to hold it there. I know my speedo is off though so I am only going about 62. I want to go even smaller to keep up on these Cali freeways. I think the ideal setup would be 39 or 38 in rear and then just go 1 tooth smaller on the front sprocket when I want to play in the dirt.

I hold mine at the throttle stop for hours on end riding the freeways in california. It keeps me comfortably above the flow of traffic untill I get to LA. Stock the DRZ dosen't have the HP to pull a higher gear. The 41 may make you feel a little about reving the engine but you will gain little if anything up top.

If you go to dirttricks.com you will find the mighty ironman sprockets. Riding on the street you will get at least 3 years on them.

I put a Sprocket Specialists rear 40 tooth on my S converted to SM model. Running a stock 15 tooth front the 40 rear and the 17" SM wheel set-up and it seems good to me. I had a 42 tooth before and wanted a little more top end.

1 tooth change on the front equals a 3 tooth change on the rear.

The JT steel sprocekts!

They are very reasonably priced, and last as long as any other 'boutique' brand does.
