17 Tooth fitted

Just fitted the 17 tooth front.
16 I took off not happy about the wear only 1600 miles only on one side , misalignment or that play in the rear sprocket carrier ?
Not ridden it yet very windy here at the moment.


Also not happy with the rear spindle holder block on the rear right seems the spindle end rotates when tightening the spindle up (100 nm) and digging into the alloy.

Britmech, you say you have obtained a 17T front sprocket. Can I ask where you obtained it from? I went to my local BMW Motorad dealer over the weekend to order one and was (politely) told that that you cannot order one in this country as it is "for overseas use only". Any help/ information would be appreciated
Cheers Ian

Just ordered the part from my local BMW dealer (Wollaston, Northampton 01604 232000)


PT No 3382396375

Speak to Jack in parts he ordered it no problem .(about a week it took give or take) he is very helpful.


Say you were recommended by the guy who bought one from them ( he might remember me )


Let me know how you get on.


Ian650 (did you have a 650 ?)

Thanks Britmech, I will give Rybrook a rocket now to sort it out.
I had a Honda CB650/4 many many moons ago.
I'm assuming the original length chain is long enough.
Thanks once again
Ian

Just ordered my 17T sprocket from Wollaston BMW....took about 10 minutes including taking my details. What a brilliant dealership. As for Rybrook in Wolverhampton...they still insist the part doesn't even exist!! It will be worth either the post and packing or even a nice ride out one afternoon.
(Time to make a complaint methinks.)
Thanks Britmech for your help 😀

No problem , sad your local dealer could not at least try.


Have never had an issue with the parts dept at wollaston , I normally find out the part numbers of what I want if is not common or from another market before chatting with Jack normally he then looks up the part I have found and he can see if it is correct in the UK or has to come in from elsewhere

Hi
What is the effect of changing the front sprocket from 16 to 17.

Do you lose much acceleration?
Is the top end speed much different?

Hi, I haven't had my 17T sprocket as yet. As soon as I have it I will give an honest appraisal.
