My stock 15t sprocket had like a shoulder on it so when the locking ring was screwed down the sprocket was properly positioned on the countershaft so it ran true with the rear sprocket. I've bought 2 14t sprockets, 1 from FBF, 1 from the dealer, and both of them did not have the shoulder on them. I asked about that and was told I had to shim the retainer out with washers in order to properly position the sprocket. This adds up to about 1/4" worth of washers. Pretty damn cheesy if you ask me. Not to mention that the original screws would not have been long enough so I had to use some others I had on hand. It's been working ok for a couple hundred miles now but it just bugs me it's kludged like that.

Have you all run into the same thing? I'd like to have a better setup. If I can't buy it reasonably I'll just have to wait untill I get my lathe and mill here in a couple months and I'll just make my own damn setup.

that's a crock. you shouldn't need to use washers or any other BS setup. you should be able to get a sprocket with a "shoulder" on it just like your stock bit. i did, no problemo.

Re: question on configuration of countershaft spro

Not sure what monster you have....I would assume they would be the same......the shoulder shape matches the retainer shape on mine.
Whenever I have replaced the front sprocket they always came that way.
Why would they come any other way?

Re: question on configuration of countershaft spro

Some suppliers list one countershaft sprocket for all 2v's from `91-`02... That's definitely not the case as my `00 M750 uses a different CS sprocket than Laura's `00 M900S.

Her's has the shoulder like your old one... You just need to get the right one. You need Afam p/n 52612, whereas the older Monsters use p/n 52604

Re: question on configuration of countershaft spro

great, I have 40 bucks in wrong sprockets and still need the damn correct one.

Where can I get it?

Re: question on configuration of countershaft spro

that afam # is for a 15t, I need 14t per ca-cycleworks site. the pictures don't help in determining what's what.

went to motowheels, they show 1 sprocket for all M's. Just like FBF.

Ca-cycleworks and the Afam USA site only list a 15t in that configuration.

I'm pretty sure that I've gotten on from Sprocket Specialists as well, buth iy was also a 15t and they don't even list it on their website.

You may have to go with a 15t and lower your gearing with the rear sprocket, if that's what you're trying to do.

Re: question on configuration of countershaft spro

Yup, trying to get it geared down. The 14t works nice. When I have to put a new chain and stuff on then I'll go up on the CS and down in t he back. I guess I'll just have to hurry and get my lathe and mill and make a nice little adapter/shoulder out of some AL that will fit perfect.

Actually, now that I think about it i might get 2 extra nuts and make a jam nut arrangement to guarantee it stays put. The nuts can double as the spacers I need anyhow. I'll hit the hardware store this weekend.

I can't believe of all the people with later model monsters that I'm the only one having this problem. Mine is an 01 Cromo

Re: question on configuration of countershaft spro

The m900ie is a special motorcycle. Something about it is different from every other 2V. It probably has to do with the m900ie having the close ratio tranny form the 748.

ALL the other modern Ducatis have the flat part of the sprocket facing out. The m900ie appears to have the sprocket turned around, but in reality, it's more like the teeth moved to the middle of the sprocket, rather than flipped.

Some people will clamp the sprocket to a milling machine and mill the shoulder down until it is the proper height. But now, the total shoulder width of the sprocket is less, so it can rock more.

As far as I know, Afam doesn't make 14t front for the 2 year run of the m900ie.
