17T front sprocket fitment
« on: January 02, 2016, 07:34:24 pm »
Hi All,

I ride a lot of fast open dirt roads with long distances to cover so I need my 2015 to cruise faster.
Im looking at fitting a 16T with the stock 45 rear for the ratio of 2.81.
However I also believe the more teeth on the sprockets the longer they last * more teeth + more chain = more to share the wear.
So gearing my bike 17/48 is very close to 16/45.
48T rear also happens to be the smallest Stealth sprocket.

What I cant find anywhere is: will a 17T fit up front without any issues??
Also is the 16T or 17T sprockets rubberized like the stock 15T?

Thanks in advance for any help

I'm not as good as I once was, but I'm as good once as I ever was.

The 16 tooth is rubber dampened like the 15.  The 17 probably is as well, but I'm not sure.
