Greetings,
a fellow biker was checking out my Gixxer tonight and said that he had a 44-tooth rear sprocket off an SRAD 750 in perfect shape. He says they're worth $120 Cdn brand new and he'd sell this one to me for $50 AND he'd install it for me. So, my questions are...

-is this as good a deal as it sounds?

-how many teeth are on my stock rear sprocket?

-how will a 44-tooth sprocket affect my torque/top speed?

-whatever the difference, is it quite noticeable?

Thanks!

i believe stock sprocket size on your 600 is 45 or 46 tooth..750 stock sprocket size is 44 rear, why would you wanna go down in the rear? you'll lose low end power.
i think you have it mixed up. you want do go down on the FRONT sprocket not the rear..if your looking for more lo end power you need to go UP in the rear, 48 tooth.
and its a shitty deal...you can buy aftermarket, better , lighter wieght sprokets for around 45 brand new...you can put it on yourself, its simple .

go here to look some up... www.kneedraggers.com

Your stock rear sprocket has 46 teeth. Look at it, and it should have a stamp on the surface with "525-46" or there abouts.

Most ppl go 2 up, to 48 T.

Im one of those ppl, and i can say, it's

Yeah how fast do you want to go. And really you'll never top out the bike due to gearing you run out juice first. I have 2 down on the front and 4 up in the rear. I dont do alot of highway riding mostly just on the way to and from the canyons where this gearing rocks. I would say try it if you ride alot around town You just leave the cars behind.

Thanks everybody. Using my advanced mountain-bike theory, I'm well-educated in the placement of 'big-in-the-rear, small-in-the-front'.

Wasn't sure though of how many teeth were there in the first place. If anything I would want to go bigger in the rear, so a 44 doesn't seem the way to go. Thanks also for the pricing info.
I would say try it if you ride alot around town also you juist leave the cars behind.
<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">Hmmm...I rely more on my low-end around town, so wouldn't a smaller sprocket be a hindrance as it would lessen my torque and increase my top speed?
I find the powerband of the 600 to be most lacking in the bottom range to start with. A smaller sprocket would make it that much boggier, no?

PS- private msg sent to my fellow Toronto Gixxer.

Actually it's just one guy, and it's in Cdn $$$. But still compared to $49.99 US (the going rate it seems), $120 Cdn is still pretty damn high.

Someone on Ebay is selling a rear sprocket w/ 45 teeth and says it's "two up from stock".

Does that sound right? Can anyone confirm that 43 is stock?

Email the guy at cal-sportbike.com or in the group buys post for chains. I just spoke with him. He has all of the charts for stock teeth.

He is also selling em discounted. I just bought a DID 520 chain conversion, 2 up in the rear from Sprocket Specialist and a stock 16 front all for about 140 tax and shipping. I believe he is selling that rear for about 36 bucks.
