Mine is a 3/4 drive with a 1/2 --> 3/4 adaptor inserted.
I got mine from a garage/yard sale years ago.
It is a Kinchrome brand.

Pretty much identical to this

dropped a tooth

Hey,

I was changing my front sprocket with xcountryrider and afry this weekend and he suggested I post up here (he still loves you guys :)) .

So I downsized to a 15t on the front and it rides like a whole new bike. The throttle is more sensitive and I can fully unload (and lift a bit) the front-end on throttle only. I do have to shift a bit more, but it feels more like other bikes I've had.
One bit of advice, in looking for the part (15t front sprocket for a 525 chain) I found it's the same part as for the GSXR 600/750/1000, SV650/1000, Triumph 675, DL650/1000, & ZX10R. Cyclegear had one on the shelf.

I see what the converts mean when they say this is the gearing Triumph should have installed :)

Have you noticed any significant impact on MPG?

yes, but it's my "fun time playing" with the throttle. I was getting about 37-39 mpg before. I reset the computer and the latest stat was 31 mpg and climbing. Once the new acceleration and power band thrills wear off I'm sure I'll get back up to 36+, but I'll let you know. It also keeps me from drifting up into the 90s on the highway. I'm tending to cruise at ~78 at 5k rpm.

Riot - thank you. Worked on it today and these instructions were spot on. Notice they even put in an alignment dot to make it idiot proof when putting it back on. Thanks!
