Would 07 w. 17t/42t need new chain?

Any advice is appreciated

If I only wanted to replace my rear sprocket (primarily for unsprung weight and little more umph off the line) on my new 07 could I keep my stock chain? And what about with a -1 front and + rear? Could I still keep the chain?

I don't have many miles on it yet (weather has been horrible and uncooperative) so the chain will would be getting "used to" the AFAM or something sprocket at 42t in place of the stock 40t.

Thanks, Branden

I'd say the +2 or -1/+2 rear probably won't fit if it's a newer, low milage chain. I'd just go with the -1 front sprocket.

Just the -1 front and keep the stock chain and rear sprocket size? I believe I have read about people posting about aftermarket front sprockets being noisy? Is this true? Thanks again for bearing with my questions :)

some can be noisy but get a stock 16t off a z1000 and you'll have nothing to worry about

So keep the OEM chain right? Any suggestions where to pick up a Z1000 front sprocket? Just order it from a parts place I guess?

Awesome, thanks for the tip. I am assuming you agree that the stock chain will be fine?
