I also ordered my JT 14T sprocket from Amazon. Picking up the bike tomorrow!

oldmanevo I left the 15t on the front of my evo as didn't want such a small tight turning sprocket and went to a 41t on the rear. This meant a new chain for extra links but to me it was worth the extra cost as it gives me the option now to change back to 39 or somewhere in between when ever I want without to much trouble as installed a quick change hub as well. Anyway I agree it makes the bike so much more fun in the tight stuff if you go either 14t front or 41t rear. Cheers

Probably a wise choice. I originally went with 15/41 because of all the positive feedback of what a great compromise it was, but to me it was too much compromise, the hwy is not where the funs at with our bikes. Read all the warnings about going down in the front vs up in the rear but I like the extra clearance the 14 gives me between sprocket/swingarm edge and no more chain contact with my undermounted exhaust. And with an expensive newer chain it's way less hassle.

i feel the gearing is fine for the EVO. The bike tops out at a low enough speed; I wouldn't want to lose anymore top end.

OK, so I have no plans on taking this bike to the track or checking what the top speed is. My 696 has 14/45 gearing (stock is 15/45) which I found great in everything except cruising at above 80 mph. The 1100 has 15/39 gearing and on my short test ride I really did not like the gearing. I think it is way too tall. I would rather improve the in town driveability

jduke Not sure of the retention method used on your bike, but if it has the 2 screws and an oval toothed retention plate be sure and replace this stuff too.
