16 t Sprocket and pivot clean out

Rode 60 mi yesterday with the new front sprocket. Feels great and don't feel like I have to get out of 3rd and 4th so quickly. Also had the pivot area de-gunked and freshly greased. Shifting is much smoother. Going to have that on my Spring prep list every year.

I was interested to know it the OP used a Sunstar (or other) or the OEM Kawasaki sprocket.

Gotcha....One benefit though of the OEM is its Rubber Dampened so its quieter than non-oem sprockets..

True that. Sometimes, the aftermarket front sprockets work just as well, and sometimes they howl. The OEM front sprockets are definitely quieter.
