hi folks, it seems i have one of those endless chains on my f650(spent a while looking for the split link). :wall: anyway i want to replace my front sprocket from a 16 to a 17, is there room for the chain so i can get the sprocket off without taking the chain off or is it a swing arm off kinda job.
also how much of a difference will i notice with top speed and the drop in acceleration.

Replacing front sprocket

Hi :howdy:

I have just done a similar mod to mine. I took out the rear wheel and that gives you some slack on the chain. Maybe you don`t need to but ... 17 tooth sprocket fits nice and snug on the splines. I bought a Renthal sprocket, the numbers stamped on the sprocket facing you when on the splines.

Dakarnoway :)
