    400 s front sprocket

    yes i lost a bit of top end but its heaps better i can still do 130 km's and sits fine on 100 km/ph without reving to hard it is also better now in heavy traffic less jerky at low speeds

    400 s front sprocket

    hi guys i took your advise and replaced the standard 44 tooth rear sprocket with a 47..it made a nice difference but i still want a bit more low end so i have brought a 14 tooth front sprocket to replace the standard 15 tooth..14 / 47 same as 400 e sprockets.... is there anything i need to no when changing the front sprocket or is it just like i think it is?? remove cover undo 30mm nut remove old sprocket place on new one with blue locktite on sharft use red locktite on 30 mm nut tighten up ajust chain seems easy but am i right cheers
  6. ok guys thanx for feedback 15 /47 works out dearer but almost the same gearing ratio as 14 /44. only diference apart from price is i get to keep my 15 tooth front sprocket with rubber bush.. and may be 15/47 has less chain wear.. so do i save cash $$ now with a 14 tooth front sprocket or later with less wear and tear 47/ rear and save $$ on chain where later how bad will smaller sprocket were out everything ps i dont keep my bikes very long and always sell them with lok klm's au or mph U S A THANKS FOR ANY FEED BACK

    drz 400 s

    i just brought a drz 400 s and it seems very high geared. my last few bikes were motorcross 2 strokes and great for bush and hill climbs.. i did some steep hills today and the tyre spun all the way up, so i will changing the back tyre for sure. i was also thinking of putting on a 13 tooth front sprocket to make those hills a bit easyer.. was wondering how much top end speed i will loose as i ride on the freeway to get to the bush tracks so i dont want to rev the guts out of my new bike any help would be great
