Since fitting the 17T front sprocket, my bike is doing 88mpg.

I worried about this before buying but am on standard gearing and it cruises happily at 70 mph using two thirds revs, so plenty in reserve. My usual consumption on a typical day out ("proper roads") is about that 88 (actually calculated on fuel used). I have had high nineties on a run round the Peak District.

Any US sellers for this 17 tooth sprocket? Seems odd we would have to get this from Germany (or Poland etc).

Order it from your BMW dealer.

So I ordered it from my BMW dealer and he confirmed BMW in the US does not sell the 17 tooth sprocket. When I asked why not, as I can get it in Europe no problem, from BMW, he said it may have something to do with 'RPMs and emissions' which I guess could make some sense. So will proceed and order in Europe. Italy or Greece sound nice this time of year!

Yes, in Europe it appears to be no problem. Also for the China market the 17 tooth sprocket is available. But not in the US.
