Keep in mind that the power bands from other bikes are the standard narrow type. The XRs have special wide power bands that are not common to all the other brands. They come in the same colors, but usually have a "W" designation somewhere in the part number to denote "wide."

I know I'm just perpetuating a dead-thread revival, but I figure someone might still learn something. :thumbsup:

I actually prefer the standard "narrow" type.. In red.

The "W" designation is definately a plus in wide out, desert riding though.

If the stock is 15:45, and I need more final speed (more street than dirt).

What´s your advice?

If you can find a 16 tooth C/S sprocket, try that. There may be some clearance issues, not sure havent tried a 16.

Or , find a 44 rear.

I went to a 44 tooth Renthal rear in aluminum for the gas mileage, but I have a 42 in steel on the way. I've been using the R rear sprocket and drilling out the bolt holes to 10mm (3/8") vs. the 8mm for the R model. Huffa2 is running a 42 tooth rear in aluminum, not so much for top end, as it is for economy. With a 42 rear, I can swap the front to a 14 to return to stock gearing, mathmatically the same as (15/45) or go to a 13 for off-roading.

No they dont. The 16 tooth is a Yamaha part and it fits. Hopefully Captain Midnight will chime in, as I cannot find the thread he posted the part number....

EDIT: Found it. The part number is on the second page in this thread...

Purcell69: Tanks for the tip, I´ve been looking for the Renthal 42(154V-520-42GRSI), but no succes.

Any ideas?

I got mine used on ebay for $10, barely used. The other possibilty is a JT for the R. You'll still have to drill out the bolt holes, but the sprocket bore and bolt pattern is the same. You can also check for a 1990-1995 XR250, as it uses the same sprocket.
