I asked this on another thread, got no answer, have searched the web, the amount of info and the arrangement of the data SUCKS, on the web.

Has anyone here purchased a 14t countershaft sprocket WITH rubber dampeners and if so, where did you buy it?

Comprehensive data below for all your gearing needs:

I suggest you to put back the original 15t sprochet and change the back with a 48t one
I will do it next time(right now i have a 14t front) and i am thinking to put a aluminium sprocket back

Thanks for your suggestion but a 2 tooth rear sprocket change is 66% of the change I want.

I also want to change gearing in the field as conditions for me change, I do NOT want to change the rear sprocket in the field, I want to change the front sprocket in the field, which I can do in 20 minutes.

The same style sprocket in a 14t size is the stock sprocket on
1999-2001 KX250
2003-2007 KLX300

but they do not seem to be rubber dampened. I do not believe it exists.

An OEM Kawasaki KLX300 14T sprocket would most likely have the rubber damper... For about half the price at just over $12, a Yamaha OEM 14T # 5NG-17460-00-00 like I had on my 2002 WR426F has the rubber damper... It's also the same JTF 565 fit. (SC: self cleaning/lightweight)

Then there's Yamaha's WR450's OEM rubber damped 13T sprocket # 5TJ-17460-00-00

By the way, a 'dampener' is a device that dampens (make damp) or moistens something, like an automatic stamp licker at the post office.

Don't feel bad, though. MANY people make the same mistake. ..

The proper word is "damper", at least on this side of the pond. The Brits use "dampener". It's a dual purpose word, and can mean something that dampens out vibrations as well as adding moisture. Shock absorbers are technically dampers. A damper can also be the flap that closes off the chimney on a fireplace or the valve in a stovepipe.............:D
