Exclamation How Hard Is This?!?

Just wondering if anyone's got a part number for a 16t front sproket? Is this something I should get from a dealer? Any recommendations? And the really big question in my mind.......how hard is the install and how long is it gonna take?!?

i bought a vortex sprocket from cycle gear for like $21. had it installed myself in about 30 minutes. really simple. it really helps to have an air gun to break the bolt loose that holds the sprocket on. other than that, piece of cake. thanks for the reminder, i gotta put my factory sprocket back on for a long freeway trip!!! good luck man.

I put mine on myself. It was no problem. Take your time and get and impact gun for the CS nut.

I think there is a how-to on this... But I'm 16-41 and it was a easy job. Air tools are a great thing to have. Flatten the washer and loosen the nut. pretty easy. you might wanna loosen the rear alxe and give yourself some slack in the chain, I don't remember if it was a issue or not.

I love this set up. maybe a bit short for long runs but 5-6k at 65mphs in 6th not bad.

Just one quick question, is the countershaft nut counterclock wise or clockwise.....I cant remember which bike it was but I changed one out and took me forever to get it off until I found it had reverse threads.....

Kawi part # 13144-1320 for the 16-tooth countershaft sprocket off the Z1000--a perfect fit for the 10 (2004-05 at least--I don't know about an '06).

And the countershaft bolt loosens counterclockwise. After you bend back the retaining washer, that is--otherwise, it doesn't loosen no matter which way you turn it. The whole job shouldn't take too long--under an hour--but you will definitely need someone to stand on the rear brake (tranny in neutral) and perhaps you may want to physically block the rear wheel from rotating as well . . . and a breaker bar will definitely be needed, if you're doing it without air-assisted tools.

Good luck!
