Re: Excellent Chain And Sprocket Information
thank the Monster gods for threads like this. yes this stuff makes my head hurt and he lost me at the first equation, but it's still great info for some of us who want to understand why certain combos work better than others. when i called the closest Ducati shop all the techs were in agreement that 14T was the best way to go on my S4. several S4 owners on this BB disagreed, saying that 15T on the front was better due to chain clearance issues, and that the same thing could be achieved by going bigger in back. the odd tooth count thing is brilliant, since i never would've considered that, but it makes so much sense once explained in such a manner.
for those who just want to trust their techs and pay for whatever they put on, fine, click on the Back arrow. or if some don't care about why things wear out faster, same thing.
i for one think this section of the DML was created exactly for this type of info.
