Rear Sprocket - 2010 vs 2008/9

Does anybody know what the difference is (if any) between the 2010 rear sprocket and the 2008/9 ?

Kawasaki shows a different part #

42041-0089 = 2010
42041-0071 = 2008/9

And Iím being told that the 2010 part is on backorder to Japan with no estimate on when itíll be available... but that thereís plenty of the 2008/9 units in stock.

Thanks

Talking 2011 Sprocket available

I have a nearly new rear sprocket from my 2011 Kawasaki Versys that only has 250 miles of usage. I replaced it with a 44 tooth rear sprocket. It you are interested in this sprocket let me know. I am always looking to remove items from my garage cabinets.

I put a 43-tooth Super-Sprox sprocket on my 09 V; then later on I put the same 43-tooth sprocket on my 10 V. The Super-Sprox sprocket fit both 09 V and 10 V perfectly.

Well, just to further confuse the issue, the 2011 also has a different part # and note numbering the sequence.

42041-0087 = 2011
42041-0089 = 2010
42041-0071 = 2008/9 (also the new/replacement # for the 2007)

I already have one on order, so depending on how that plays out (receive it or cancel it) I may take you up on that.

Thanks

I have been told that the aftermarket sprockets are the same for the 2008/9/10 so they must be the same dimensions but Iím wondering if they changed anything in the material/metallurgy.

My OEM unit currently has over 32,000 miles on it and still isnít showing any signs of wear, so Iíd like to stay with what has worked so well... Hell, at the rate itís going, I may just keep the original sprocket on until the engine needs rings & bearings.

Thanks

Since it seems to be the common knowledge that one replaces both sprockets and chain at the same time, I went to sprocket center (.com) and found a kit for the Versys. The rear sprocket (a 43-tooth sprocket I may say) is clearly aluminum. I do not have an issue with this since my earlier set had no sign of wear on the rear sprocket while my front sprocket had significant wear. It will take some time to determine if that is a bad idea or not.

Really, the non-rubber-damped front sprocket started out with a bit of a whine that made me think that I was a TIE fighter pilot. I started wondering if any of them listened to the equivalent of Kenny-G from their galaxy... The TIE fighter whine is lessening with time (or perhaps I am perfect to be a pilot for the Empire).

Die rebel scum!

I'd be a bit leery of an Aluminum sprocket - they wear out MUCH faster than do the steel ones.

As for fitment - I bought a rear sprocket for a 2010 from a lister, and, except for being silver colored, it looks the same as my sprockets on the '08 and '09. It's NOT installed yet.
