06 ZX10R rear sprocket advice - quotes

Gents, an easy one - can I get some pm mail from those who have on hand a rear sprocket for my new 06 ZX10R? Not swapping chains, so we are talking about a 525 chain, I want to go two teeth above stock (so that would be 42 teeth, but correct me if I am wrong) and I would prefer not steel but alum, and would like ano black - I think Renthal has one like that?

Could also use some black spools for the rear on this bike too, while you're at it.

TIA

I am also thinking aout going with a 42 rear sprocket, but I am looking for gold anodized. Will the stock chain work with a 2 up rear sprocket?

So will the 42 fit an 06 with stock chain? If so I will take it if there are no scratches, etc.

question of the day is whether there is enough adjustment room in the rear axle to accomadate two more teeth in the reer sprocket - my 06 ZX10 has nearly two hash marks of inward adjustment available now (new) before the chain has strecthed - two more teeth is basically equivilant one tooth more chain engaged, or 1 link overall, and 1/2 link when you do the two sides of the chain math - - each link on the 525 chain is 5/8s, I think, so a little over a 1/4 of adjustment would be required, roughly, to accomadate the move from 40 to 42.

Tha't all speculation, real world advice from 05 owners is that they were unable to go immediately to a 42 tooth sprocket using the stock chain, I have been told.

I prefer a larger rear sprocket as oopposed to a smaller front sprocket on princple, but that option is always available and do-able.

I may just get the 42 tooth sprocket in hand and try it out and see if I can get the rear axle back on - I'll report back

You're right ct, on the 04-05 a 112 link is needed to use the 42t sprocket. The 110 was too short.

Yeap, I couldn't accomodate the move from a 39T to a 40T (one tooth) with the O.E. chain on my 04.

Dress for the slide & not the ride

Thanks, and thanks for the heads up (BD) in the first place, the benefit of a Kawi forum with guys watching out for you for sure. Sure sounds like it is a no go though, at least not with a brand new chain (When you hear that folks couldn't even go up one tooth, that's troubling!)

What would be the benifit of going up 2 in the rear as opposed to down 1 in the front and up 1 in the rear? I'm thinking about doing sprockets soon and would like all the info I can get. Thanks in advance.
