Fitting a 17T front sprocket will pull the rear wheel forward a couple of  notches. You won't notice the difference in performance. 94 horses will still get you off the lights pronto...

I enjoyed yours and the posts of others. I had a similar experience many years ago. Decided to do my own chain etc. You can get a little flustered once you start grinding away, as there is no way back. Then to find the tool you bought was a copy, and starts bending. Grrr. However, spending an hours labour charge on a good quality tool really is a no brainier.
If I were you, I would definitely make time to remove the extra link, as it will need doing for sure. Thanks for the posts

Howya Stevie, this may be a silly question but I'm looking to get chain and sprockets for my tiger 800 XC and I'm going to get the JT & D.I.D 525 ZVMX X-Ring chain sprocket kit like what you got. My question is if there's a difference between the G&G and the S&S version? I can't find any info online and it appears to me that you had the G&G version which looks to have a gold chain and a black back sprocket whereas the S&S has a steel coloured chain and back sprocket. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, it has been a while but as I recall I researched the sprockets ... settling on JT as best and as far as the chain I simply did a search for chain specified for a 2015 Tiger XRt and one of the few returned results was a special offer on at M and P that was a cheaper price including sprockets than any other price I could find on the chain alone. The sprockets included were a non-cush drive JT front and unbranded rear, both of which I have as spares. I then bought the JT cush drive front (purely my preference as OEM had cush rubber) and JT rear sprockets and chain tool from a separate supplier.

As for the colour I didn't go looking for anything in particular other than a top of the range DID chain and it was purely the gold chain as part of the M & P offer, though I do think it looks nicer than the plain steel.

I do recall I had to get in touch with M & P straight away, not their fault, but when I opened the chain it had been packaged with a 520 connector link inside the wrapped chain, however they sent me a genuine DID 525 link straight out no quibble.  :028:
