Will a 16 Tooth fit on a 650L

15 posts in this topic

I just put on a 16-tooth sprocket. It's not cush-drive (maybe its for an XR600R?). It's a tight fit, but it does fit.

my stock 15-tooth sprocket has some sort of rubber insert ... must be a cush-drive, of a sort Ive never seen before .. :D

Its not an insert, really, its a little rubber bonded to the sprocket to help quiet the noise of the chain- I think.

It might cushion things a tiny bit if it actually holds the chain rollers off the bottoms of the sprockets, but not by much.

Dave is right, it is simply for noise reduction. I doesn't reduce the load or wear on the sprocket/chain/countershaft whatsoever.

Id be very interested in your findings regarding the 16T.

I need higher gearing and would definately fit one if the chain doesnt rub the cases.

So was the conclusion on this that a 16 will fit? If so who makes a 16 that will fit the L? Has anyone actually put some miles on with that size?
