just a quick question. i've noticed alot of people on here talking about what sprockets to use on their bikes. everyone says use 16tooth front and that you should not go below that because of the angle the chain will be put at. i understand this and i'm sure some guys have tried it and had problems. but while reading a magazine today i noticed that the ducati 1098 comes stock with a 15 tooth sprocket and the race bike they had a 14 tooth on. now i don't plan to go that low but just wondering why it works ok on their factory bikes but everyone here says its a bad idea. i don't think the factory would put a sprocket on they thought would be a problem especially with the amount of torque the ducatis make anyways. maybe a dumb question just wanted to hear some opinions.
