Front and rear sprocket sources
« on: September 26, 2014, 02:54:43 AM »
After the flame wars on the other sprocket threads it was impossible to find some facts about sprocket providers/manufacturers so I thought I would just post some useful links to source non-OEM front and rear sprockets. If anyone else has a genuine www addresses for non-OEM front and rear sprockets please pm me and I will include them in this list so at least we have a go to source without all the flaming.

JT Sprockets in the USA said they only produce 15t front and 41t rear.

Intobikes in the UK has a 39t to 52t rear sprockets made by Renthal I believe.

The Honda NC700 rear sprocket has the same OEM part number as the CB500X rear sprocket but it is a 39t sprocket, I have fitted one and I'm pleased with the gearing outcomes, it fits like an OEM part, the quality is good and they are available from your local Honda dealer.

Link International in Australia is an importer/distributor only and will not sell directly to the public so you will have to find a retail outlet for their products but they claim to have 15t and 16t front sprockets. However, even under the CB500X listing the sprockets are for a (CB/CBR500) so I'm not sure if it will fit like an OEM part. Click on the "Final-Drive" link under parts.

Another source for a 15t, 16t front and stock 41t rear is from the sprocket specialists in the USA. the sprockets are presently not listed on their site but I ordered a 16t front sprocket via email about $27 plus postage, (part number 659-16) and received it in 7 days. Correction, they don't respond to emails and my sprocket chewed out after just 7,000 klm's.

Another option is to change tire size, I have been using a Pirelli MT60 140/80/17 which has a slightly greater circumference than the stock 160/60/17 and that alters the "gearing" to a very close equivalent to a 16t front sprocket.You can check the details by changing tire sizes on the Gearing Commander web site.

I started a post entitled 'Rear sprocket change 39t'

I used a genuine Honda 39t rear sprocket as fitted to the NC700xd and integra 39t.

Honda part number 41201-MGS-D70.

From memory it cost around 43 but went on a treat. Happy

I find that I have to shift from 1st to 2nd way too early, does the 39t rear allow us to change gears later?

It does, in my opinion it puts the ratios where they should be, making for a more relaxed, less frenetic ride. With the caveat that it won't suit everyone. Sounds like it would suit you though. If you search the forum you'll find other's comments on it.

I've removed the last five totally irrevalent posts from this topic.

Please stick to the topic subject and cut out the childish banter. Once is funny, twice is amusing, but after a while it simply becomes annoying and spoils the topic  :038:

Back to the topic please  :821:

Thanks! I read those other posts and it confused the hell out of me, I will be going with the 39T then.

Supernam, one thing to be aware of(you may be already) is that your chain will be near the end of the adjusters ,unless you remove links. It's ok like that & you can resize the chain when you're happy with the sprocket. I think you will be.

I think you will be happy with the 39t rear sprocket, as Defender said "it does make for a more relaxed, less frenetic ride". You can run the gears out a little more, 2nd and 3rd are more user friendly in the twisties and through the hills, it feels more natural ie; the bike isn't stressed out but you may find the bike doesn't pull as hard in steep sections but just cog it down and give it a fist full. I am going to a 16t front as well as the 39t rear soon, I think that would be a better all-round option but could be a problem in steep country with pillion and gear, we will just have to see, I will let you know.
Cheers,
