14T Front Sprocket 47T Rear Sprocket?!
I have picked up a versys for a bit of a steal otherwise I'd probably never had owned one, typically I am a sports bike rider but so many people have raved about the versys and how its ideal for commuting!
Again typically with my other bikes I always carry out a service and change the chain and sprockets purely so I know that from my ownership everything was 'A ok!' Now normally I drop the front sprocket a tooth and raise the rear a tooth, a pretty typical mod for sports bikes I believe, most likely down to no one ever really using 180mph on the road!
Now I have done some research and it seems no one carries out this mod on the versys, again I may be wrong and I realise this bike isn't necessarily a performance bike and that usually those who own these aren't after performance!
Well i've ordered a replacement 14T front sprocket and a renthal 47T rear sprocket plus some titanium to fasten it on!
Just curious of your opinions of this or whether there is a reason this mod is avoided?
Oh and I've noticed the stock front sprocket has that rubber seal, presumably for sound deadening, my guess is I will get a lot more noise?
