Just had to replace my chain & sprockets (had 16/42 and stayed that way). If you want a damped 16T sprocket get the one for the newer models (16T for the 07 is not damped). Part #60033129016

Don't have any idea what the difference it makes, but that's what I got.

Benefit of 16T over 17T and 45 over 42

So what's the benefit of changing the sprocket sizes? I've read that people like the 16T/45T arrangement for off-road but what does that mean? Do you have higher torque in first gear or what?

Sprockets

Lower gearing all the way around,much more off-road friendly.

You dont have a pic of a Damped one do you?
Interested to know if it helps reduce the vibes a bit.
Cheers.

Here is a picture of damped sprocket.

It has rubber disks on both sides of the sprocket and damping is only for the noise generated by chain, doesn't help a bit with vibrations.

Time to change my sprockets and chains. Ran across this thread while doing research. Thought I would reply and "pare down" the info in this thread:

Stock set-up: 17/42
Rear tire rotates .40476 turn per 1 front sprocket turn

16/42 combo
Rear tire rotates .38095 turn per 1 front sprocket turn

17/45 combo
Rear tire rotates .37778 turn per 1 front sprocket turn

And someone mentioned a 16/44:
Rear tire rotates .36364 turn per 1 front sprocket turn
