    I got mine from Touratech. Haven't put it on yet. I have a long ride to the desert so I'll just pack it along and change it when I get there and then swap back for the long slog home.

    You can get the lighter silver one for a few extra bucks...
    I dont know that part #.
    But it will show up in the "related parts" when you search for the # above.

    Anywhere else? Rather not give TT anymore of my money. They don't make it so there has to be someone else to get them from...

    Isn't it standard fit on the F650GS?

    I believe the F650GS twin stock front sprocket is a 17 tooth.

    For those who are wondering, the 116 chain with a 15/47 sprocket combination is too short! I found the hard way....:baldy

    I fitted a 15 tooth Touratech sprocket with DID 525 X ring chain.When I tightened the front sprocket up to 50 nm the chain rubbed on the motor casing, luckily i checked before riding .The chain would have made light work of the aluminium casing.I think its because the DID chain is thicker than the original chain and the rivets protrude a little more. I had to have a 1.2 mm spacer made up at a engineering firm before it could work.

    The bike feels fare more responsive with this sprocket up front.
    Will be testing in the mountains soon,report to follow.

    Those of you that have installed the 17 tooth cs sprocket. Did you need a longer chain? If not did you still have any adjustability left?


    Has anyone else had this problem? What chains fit without the spacer?

    I can go from 15 tooth to 17 tooth with the stock chain length.

    That sux -just put on a did chain today and my 15 tooth is waiting for a long dirt ride.

    Did you lay the stock spocket next to the 15 tooth and check the difference in offset? Was the tt 15 tooth the sport spocket with the holes in it?

    I have the 15T without the holes. My chain isn't stock but I can't recall what it is. Regina maybe?? :scratch

    Anyways, no fit problems for me.

    Hi TrevorVe.

    I have just replaced the existing 15t sprocket on our 2 bikes and have no chain rub issues.
    I replaced the solid 15t with the 15t with holes and no problems with clearance.
    Is it possible you put the sprocket on the wrong way.?
    Was the 15t marking facing you?, if so I think you may have got a faulty sprocket and would send it back for replacement rather than shim it.

    I only replaced ours due to starting to hook up and I dont want to ruin our top of the range DID xring chains.

    Cheers

    How long does it take you to change the sprocket? How hard is it to get it off, and what tool do you use?

    I think it takes me about 15-20 minutes including adjusting the chain. The first time it took a little longer because the sprocket didn't want to come off. Now it's an easy job. You need a T25 to remove the cover and, I think, a 17mm socket to remove the sprocket bolt. Plus the tools to adjust the chain.

    Just gone 15t front sprocket and 45t rear and I'm loving it so far. Much better low speed control/response and still plenty of poke if you need it. I guess a days cruising at high speed will be the cost in terms of fuel consumption but on first impression, I can't believe that I didn't do this sooner.
