I'm about to take the plunge and see what it's like with a 14 tooth front sprocket (instead of stock 15). My mechanic doesn't have any in stock though, so I'm thinking about ordering this:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Kawasaki-KLE650A-Versys-14-tooth-FRONT-sprocket-JT-_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQhashZitem3a5c43243eQQitemZ250656007230QQptZMotorcyclesQ5fPartsQ5fAccessories#ht_500wt_956

Does it seem like the real deal and would fit properly etc?

fr sprocket

the oem front sprocket is dampened. this means that there are rubber cushions molded to the sides of the metal sprocket which dampen the chain noise. It makes aftermarket ones look like a bargain but they will be noisier than oem.

I'm listening to music pretty loud in my helmet anyways ;)

The stock is a 15T, so you might notice a slight change.
Yeah that's the idea ;). Just curious to see if I'd like it that way as I'm a sucker for torque, but I'm not typically riding at high top speeds.

If I really like the 14t front change I might even try going 48t Rear too...
