« on: May 20, 2016, 12:57:33 PM »
just changed my front 15th standard cog to a renthal 16th ,on my gsx650f what a difference,makes a more relaxed bike at motoway speed and even on town roads its brilliant took me hour and half to do and cost £15 ,probably best money ive spent on my bike and easy to do.

Good stuff,  I've been thinking of going up a tooth on my 1250, two reasons really.  To correct the overly optimistic speedo and even with only 3.5k on the clock the rear wheel is near the end of the adjusters suggesting to me the chain was to long from new.

the1250 is geared i think to near perfection,with the 650 your engine always seems to be a gear lower than you actually want.normally i would change the whole lot but i know my chain and rear sprocket are nearly new,so thought i would try it,made a big difference.

sorry STILL LEARNING for the late reply as i flew out my holidays on the 31st when you posted up requiring link,i just purchased it from fleabay .
failing that ...Renthal 16 T Front Sprocket 289-525-16 to fit Suzuki GSX 650 F 2008-2015
rear sprocket was left as standard easy job ,just cleaning everything as you go ,bit heavy going getting the sprocket nut loosend tho keep bike steady.
