?'s for 14 tooth sprocket owners

1) Where do you buy the 14t sprocket.
2) Did it make a noticeable improvement in 1st gear?
3) Do you need to make any other adjustments to the rear sproket or chain if you do this mod?
4) does ducati make a 14 t sprocket & if so what is the part #?


thanks in advance!

Simon

And another question, if you change to a 14 tooth sprocket or a larger rear sprockett, can the speedometer reading be adjusted to prevent overstating speed and distance?

Changing either sprocket won't affect your speedometer.

1) My dealer.
2) 1st gear, 2nd, 3rd 4th, you'll see a difference in every gear, for the better IMO.
3) No other adjustments are necessary.
4) Yes, I didn't look but it posted on their website.

Most people I know/heard have changed their front to a 14th, makes riding easier in the city. You loose a bit off the top end, but who rides at 200+ kph anyways?

The bike rides like a different animal... I like it...I did the same mod on my ZX-10R in 2006...I just picked mine up from my dealer, and had them put it on while i waited...Got lucky that day, they had an off day in service dept...

Same here,have done it to every bike I've owned except for my Brutale-R which simply doesn't need it.
I'm fortunate enough to sell these gorgeous bikes for a living so parts (or price) aren't an issue.
I made certain mine was done before the crank was even turned

Had mine put on 2 weeks ago. Absolute crap for freeway/motorway riding, incredible for lower speed riding. The grunt this beast puts out is unimaginable. I do alot of freeway/motorway riding and was close to removing it but I could not live without that low end tidal wave of power now. She's even more eager to stand up in 3rd now!

I chose to order a 40t rear instead. It's less wear on the chain and sprockets since going down in the front means the chain has to 'bend' and 'straighten' more than stock. Only downside is that it's a bit more expensive.

I've had a 14T fitted for quite a while, this smaller front sprocket causes alot more torque on the chain (up by 7&#37. Rather than crusin on the Highway in 4th (std 15-38) I can now cruz in top. The acceleration is alot better, but Wheelies can be a big problem when your not expecting them. But I tend to agree that 15-40 would be ideal (Ratio 2.66) in between the two.
