Re: Perspective of the 19 tooth engine sprocket - 1250

off the shelf item and works and fits great. Mount the sprocket and turn by hand, you'll see the witness mark made on the inner sprocket cover. A few moments with a dremel or file, just enough to provide clearance and you're all set. Nothing else to do but enjoy the ride.

The new sprocket does provide the least chain and sprocket wear of any setup. You'll be amazed what what happens to 2nd/3rd gear use.

Re: Perspective of the 19 tooth engine sprocket - 1250

Ive had my 1250 out in Nevada and run it at 120mph for quite a ways with oem gearing,what was odd was how smooth it got as the revs went up. Almost like white noise and not much wind blast with the shield Ive got on it. I was all about raising the gearing till I did this higher speed riding. CA its hard to do with out going to jail. I wasnt so sure about the 19 fitting properly at the time but this thread showed clearly it works fine. I may try the 19 CS anyway and see what I think,I do like a nice relaxed cruising feel. Thanks for the info!

Re: Perspective of the 19 tooth engine sprocket - 1250

I've contacted sprocketspecialists.com and they said that they don't have a 19T for 1250, only for 1200. Are they using the same sprockets?

Re: Perspective of the 19 tooth engine sprocket - 1250

This is interesting to me because i've been doing 46 miles of hiway a day commuting. Would this make 2up challenging when stopped?

I have the Zero Gravity screen on it,at 6' tall this tended to put bugs right onto my face shield so I put an MRA adjustable X-Screen on. The MRA add on screen really works for me.
Bugs go over or onto the top of the helmet. For winter I would like more of a full coverage windscreen but not sure a good one really exists.

Now you got me wondering.

JT Sprockets lists the 1200 and 1250 front as the same p/n, JTF513. Unfortunately they only go to 18T. I bought 2 19T sprockets from sprocket center branded superlight last Sept or so, but they don't show them anymore. With flipping the front, it gives me 4 chains worth to find another.

The company ESJOT sells a 19T. Some are listed on ebayAU.

I run a 19T front and 40T rear. It's great - ~4100 rpm at 80 mph actual (gps). Yes the odo reads ~10% low, and the speedo reads ~4% low. One reason I use the gps. As for git-up-and-go - you won't win any dragraces, but I don't drag race. Correct selection of the proper gear has it through and out of corners just as quickly as with stock gearing. Same thing around town. How aggressive do I ride - on mainly chip and seal roads that do wear tires, I get 2,000 or so out of rears and 3,500-4,000 out of fronts, always with the sides gone well before the middle. The taller gearing didn't improve tire mileage, i.e. the bike still comes out of corners just as hard.
