Rear Tire and Sprocket
The rear of the bike is almost ready to go. I received a couple more parts this week so I mounted them up.
I ordered Renthal black 48 tooth sprocket for the rear and a stock size 12 sprocket for the front. I received the correct one for the rear but the front one was shipped wrong. So That part will have to go back.
I decided to go with the Bridgestone tires so I ordered a M404 100/90/19. It looks really good all mounted up.
I also ordered a Renthal R1 chain to complete the set up. The sprocket that is on the counter shaft in the bottom photo is a 13, it is new and I will probably run it also just to see which I like better the 12 or 13. From what I remember about gearing adding a tooth to the front is like adding 3 to the rear. If that is not right let me know.
I still need a rear chain guide, the swing arm chain sliders as well as a mud flap. I found and ordered a chain guide today, it doesn't look to be in the best of shape but I think it is some thing I can work with.
