Last Mods before heading back to work for a week straight

Vortex 44 tooth sprocket:




My next project to tackle is to fit this Honda fairing (beak) to my bike. It's onlt $11.00 so no big loss if it doesn't work

I'm always surprised how a small item like a cool sprocket can make such big improvement

I am too It is pretty interesting looking, like a saw blade. I hope it holds up, it is aluminum not steel.... But from what I read here the 44 is the best of both worlds. I always have the stock 46 to put back on if I don't like it.

Keep a close eye on it Jeff - its life will be shorter than the steel ones.

You'll still get a full 20k out of the sprocket. The V is very easy on chains and sprockets due to its low hp and torque. (Still has a lot to do with your right wrist )

I am excited to throw the stock 46 tooth back on. I'd like some more pep
