17 sprocket

What is a reputable place to order online a 17 sprocket for the 919. I saw a thing about it on the 919.org but it looked to be from 5 yrs ago.

I picked up a VFR 17T sprocket from www.sprocketcenter.com. Shipped for less than $30.

I wrote that article and yes it was about 4 or 5 years ago, but I didn't know there was a shelf life on information

I started working for Kyle Racing last year and keep those 17T sprockets (among other things) in stock just for 919 owners.

Hey Williamson, I might have a spare OEM 17T. I'll check and see and PM you if I do.

no shelf life on GOOD info but sometimes the best places to buy things change. i have not read the article yet so i dont know exactly what it says so wont go any farther than that.

I got mine from sprocket center as kit. Have also used Kyle Racing. Can't go wrong with either.

Whats the purpose of the 17T? I assume it lowers the ratio? For better wheelies?

Question what is the difference

This sounds like a great mod to do and as I have been checking the web I found the 'Driven Front Sprocket' manufacturer. My question is what is the difference between a 520 Chain and the 530 Chain?

I read that article 4 or 5 years ago, Did the mod, and never looked back, I bought the 17T at the local Honda Dealer for around $25.00 .

Bullet, It actually goes the other way. It relaxes the motor a tad and makes the speedo nearly correct.

it will tame down the wheelies a bit... and makes highway cruising a bit less buzzy...

Get a $95 Speedo Healer, and you will have an accurate speedometer with any sprocket combo you can cook up.

I ran a 17 for a while when I was working out of different centers. I'd commute an hour one way. Long distances like that are all the 17 is good for. Fuel mpg's did not improve.

Stock gearing is nearly perfect. But I still like to play with the 15 once in a while.
