did a search and asked at the shop no 38t rear sprockets available

smallest is 42t so I have decided to go 16t front and 42t rear

anyone got pics of the front sprocket cover grinding to fit the 16t

EDIT:
bike is booked in for Friday this week, so if it is done then I will post pics here for future reference

TIA

well changed my mind again and kept the 15t front sprocket and just got the 42t rear sprocket fitted

speedo is about 5k's out, but I will be getting a speedo healer in a few weeks

take off requires some minor clutch slippage, but the 750 has enough power and the bike seems to accelerate better than before.

Going to a 42T rear sprocket will have made your speedo more accurate by absorbing some of the inherent error in the original set up. If you were running a stock rear 150/70 tyre, your speedo would be close to perfect and no speedo healer necessary.

not sure if it is closer to the right speed or not now that I have fitted a 42t sprocket.

I will have to get a gps and see test it

Thanks TRPUT just taped the mobile phone to the handle bars with electricians tape and checked the speedo with a gps app
It is accurate with the new rear sprocket
