Hey XoOoM, when you get these let me know how they go on. I'm interested, just want to make sure they fit.

Here's some pics. Love the switch to 43t. Used to be 79 mph @ 6000 rpm, now its 83 mph @ 6000 rpm. Noticeably less buzzy, with the ability to get across an intersection without having to shift to 2nd. No loss in pep that I can feel, but that may have to do with the Pipe/PCIII combo making the up the diff.

Sorry to thread jack guys, but I know nothing about this topic. What's the advantage of swapping this sprocket in?

#1 and most of all I switched to a 43 tooth form the stock 46 to change the final gearing so 1st gear is a bit more usable and it runs at a lower rpm (indicated) for a specific speed.
#2 the design is a hybrid. With an outer sprocket/teeth made of hardened steel (better durability) with an aluminum inner core to save weight.
#3 It looks trick! IMHO

This one is real pretty.

But for 43T sprockets: Read All About it

Thanks for the info. I wonder, would this void warranty?

Are sure it's that way and not the opposite??? Dropping teeth on the back should raise the speed you're traveling at a given engine RPM.....

Void the warranty of what? Very settled law around modifications and warranties. Basically if you modify something and it causes a failure yeah its an issue. But what will a rear sprocket cause to fail? Clutch? Not a warranted item. Its a wear part. Same with the chain & front sprocket.

Of course my bike is no longer under warranty, so what do I care?

Besides I have a audiovox cruise, fuse box, scottoiler and other junk hanging off my bike, so if they would argue about a sprocket...

The indicated speed to engine RPM ratio should not change. Speed sensor is on the transmission after all. But actual speed should go up.

The 43T sprocket makes the speedo accurate and the odo read low. As opposed to the stock bike which has an accurate odo and ~8% high speedo.

Yeah, what he said. It must be senility creeping in. You are correct, I meant the opposite. I corrected the original post, thanx for catching it.
