16tooth front sprocket
Did either of you grind any of the front surrounding area?I made the same mod about a month ago. I think it was worth it. Still plenty of torque but smoother and quieter cruising in the 60 to 75mph speed range The 16t sprocket was only $35.
No grinding required on mineDid either of you grind any of the front surrounding area?
I like this option, but not keen on taking to it with a grinder of any sorts.
My sprocket is from a monster 696 with the 520 chain £17 in englandWould you mind sharing part number and where you got it please.
Tony, as you are very experienced with all things motorbikes I'll ask for your advice.Agreed

As long as you maintain reasonably good control over the chain tension, I don't think you have any cause for concern.Tony, as you are very experienced with all things motorbikes I'll ask for your advice.
I've replaced my front sprocket with the 696 monster 16t as suggested (sourced locally from ducati dealer for $30) and the clearance is very tight, I would guess at maybe 1mm - is this too tight, should I be worried about it?
I would hate to cause damage, how much clearance is safe if that is applicable - I've double checked chain tension, so confident everything is set correctly, just concerned with very small gap(?)
