Anyone try using a 42 tooth rear sprocket?

I wouldn't run a 42 ... the 'L' will barely pull top gear as it is ... will go almost as fast in 4th as 5th, if you've noticed ... but, if you still want one, check the Thumpertalk Store, or RockyMountainMC ... :excuseme:

I think it will pull a 42 just fine in motard trim with 17" wheels, hot cam, 10.5 piston, pumper and an FMF PC4 full system. :excuseme:

I can't keep the front wheel down as it is with 14/48 gearing. :bonk:

Why not go with a 15 front, you'll be able to keep the same chain length.

I'll second the RockyMountain M/C. Their Primary Drive sprockets are cheap and as far as aluminum sprockets go I think they are as good as the "higher priced" competition...

I tried my 15 front and would ya believe my freakin chain is too short for it, as my rear wheel won't go all the way forward with the oversize rear rotor and extended caliper bracket. :excuseme:

I installed the 42 from sprocket specialist last night and rode 30 miles of freeway this morning to test it out.

What a difference. The rpms dropped big time and the bike is much smoother, yet it still pulls great 1st and 2nd roll-on wheelies.

After doing the math, the 14/42 that I have now is the same as the factory 15/45 setup. Go figure.

Now if I can just fix the tank slap wobble at 90! :excuseme:
