Front and rear sprockets

Hello everyone!

I own a FS 550e from 2007 with both original sprockets 16T and the front and 38T at the rear.

I'm struggling to find some new sprockets (the rear one preferably in black or gold) for this same measures.

Also, I've heard some people saying that the sprockets from the KTM 450/525 from 2006 or something would also fit these "older" bergs, is that right?

Any information appreciated.
Thanks!

Hi There. I recently bought front and rears for my FS650e. The rears are pretty easy to track down; I now have a Renthal 45 and a KTM 50. The front is a bit harder! The Renthal and KTM front sprockets didn't fit my bike. The Renthal parts say that they do fit, but dont... I ended up ordering a 14T and 16T from gearheads.com. There are heaps of online OEM sites to use, but gearheads worked for me. Cheers! Richard.

Hey there,
just had a quick look on the Australian ebay and there were plenty for sale ,both front and rear.
I used to run a 16 front and never had problems getting them.
I think the front will fit some older husqavana and one of the KTM models, cant remember which ones though.

I run an ironman rear sprocket from a ktm 525

best sprockets in the world

very light and tough, they come with high tensile bolts with an 8mm hex head so you can really tighten them up

Thanks from fe390vt and Damo W

Thanks alot for the replies!

A friend of mine just pointed me to this site: Motorcycle Parts and Accessories | Chain and Sprocket kits | Exhausts
I might be going with it.

16/38 is ridiculously tall gearing that they put on them to pass top gear drive by noise restrictions.

6th gear is obsolete with 16/38 and 16/40 exept for road racing courses.

I've been running 16/45 and am very happy with my FS650 with that gearing. It cruises along at 70-75 no problem, and will do a ton still.

The best part of running shorter gearing is it gives you two different gears for each corner, (not at all possible with tall gearing)

I'm changing to 17/47 with a dirt tricks ironman rear.

Will a 17t fit one the front, I know on my 04 you had to just about pull the plastic chain runner off to get a 16t on and wasn't much room there against the swing arm.?

apparently the 17 fits.. there was an old post on a husky 17 being used by someone

I think it would at least eat the front of the chain slider on the swingarm

I got tired of unscrewing and contorting the chain slider to get a 16t on or off.

Boss told me a trick, glue it with black RTV, then cut it where it wraps around the swingarm.

Result is piece of cake sprocket removal and installation. And the kicker...
No more flappity flap flap from the slider.

I saw that post where he had grinded down two teeth a little, then on the next time he just lined it up and hit it with a rubber hammer.

I want 17/47 so I can go to 14/47 for knobbies and use the same chain. I have a spare Kush hub, so will lace it to a 18" wheel, so I can just swap the sprocket carrier.

Also, I've heard a bigger rear sprocket helps with traction, pulling the wheel down to the ground more than a smaller one, so there's that.

Revisiting this thread for a quick update and a quick question


UPDATE:

Got this setup on the picture.


Rear sprocket looks beautiful and fits perfectly. The problem is the front sprocket... couldn't be more off.

What went wrong: I looked on Renthal's website using the "fit my bike" feature but since there was no "FS 550E" for me to choose I went with the closest one "FS 650E" and it found this sprocket I got (292--520-15GP) which doesn't fit my bike.

For some reason, if I choose the "FE 550" I get the 295--520-14P.



QUESTION:

I don't know for sure which one fits my bike (it isn't the 292 for sure) but I need it to be 15T and it should replace this part number: 80033029015

Can anyone with experience on Renthal sprockets give me a hand here?
