Why would the the same tooth hitting the same chain link more frequently result in more wear that the same tooth hitting the same link less frequently, when that tooth would in turn hit different links more frequently?

Because it creates a pattern instead of being more random and spreading wear equally accross more links. Your chain is as strong as its weakest link.

Most of the time it would make little difference but chains, like any machinery, donít wear evenly. Over time the link behaviour will become more uneven, however well you look after it. That means you could put a little more stress on one tooth than on the rest thousands of times in a short-ish ride. At best it will wear quicker than itís neighbours but it then wonít carry its share of the load and throw extra stress on the adjacent teeth. Then theyíll start to wear faster and so on.

If that piece of chain hits a different tooth every time it reaches the sprocket any additional wear it causes will be shared around all of the teeth in turn so wear is more even and the sprockets will last longer. If the sprockets keep their shape the chain lasts longer.

Anyone tried 17/43 on V1000?
(Assuming OEM is 15/43).

You may find the 17T front sprocket is a little too large for the sprocket cover.
Titty bars aren't bad if you enjoy being sexually aroused without an outlet. Oh, and they're also convenient if you're in the mood for paying double the normal price for a drink. If I'm in the mood to be treated poorly while giving up large amounts of cash, I visit a BMW dealership

Is that a fact or a supposition?

great info ...gentlemen thank you...usually when i do a change in ratio... it is small either up or down depending on the motorcycle.
The V1 at first felt a bit tall  but i have gotten used to it, i just ride its torque wave and now it seems pretty much perfect.

Hi Claude, This topic has been discussed in the dim and distant past on this Forum and I seem to remember 17T being a tooth too far. I havenít checked previous topics and I am happy to be proven wrong.

Thanks LD! I'll search in previous posts then.
