17/47 puts you at 5k rpm for 80mph in top gear. It also means your minimum speed in 1st without slipping the clutch is about 9mph.

Cheers for the info, much appreciated. I'll just stick a 47 rear on then and leave the front alone. I'm off touring on it soon so thought it was a good Idea to lower the rpm when cruising

I assume you will need a 2 link longer chain ,to keep the wheel in the same place or,have you got enough adjustment ?

my thinking on the 17t is its just about enough, i'd like 6th to be a bit taller still, i'm still going for another gear... but I think adding 47 rear as well as the 17t front may be too tall in lower gears

surely with 6 gears to play with 6th could be more of an overdrive as standard....1st 5 are spot on, would be nice to make it a bit more long legged in 6th , for me personally anyway

I thought that the rubbery bit of the front sprocket was the cush-drive . . .   :084:

For those of you changing from standard gearing, check your speedo with a satnav. This is relevent to the earlier Tigers. The later Tigers have a different speedo sensor pickup..

Hey boys. If you are putting brand new sprocket on an old chain you maybe asking  for problems.  :182:

front wears faster than rear anyway, usually needs changing before rear....mines a new bike though....

The cush drive is in the rear wheel fella, the rubber ring on the front sprocket is for damping.

The outer plates of the chain might touch the rubber but the goal is to reduce high pitch buzzy ringing sort of noises. The rubber is applied to the faces of the sprocket. Alas, no cush-drive effect as the sprocket does not float on the rubber.

I also thought it was a Cush drive as well,so grounded the rubber off the old one & our right! Solid steel.
