What’s the smallest sprocket that can be installed on the rear wheel? I mean, without creating any chain rubbing problem.

I know some here already fitted 41T and I’m wondering if smaller ones are possible or available.

I always install longer gearing on my bikes and intend to do the same on my V1000. I already have a 16T that I’ll install next winter, even if my bike will have about 7800 km.

But a crown with 41 teeth can I mount it?  :027:

I'm afraid of not having enough registration for the tension of the chain ....   :notsure:

FYI, I've been riding with a 16/41 sprocket setup since about one month ago; I love the reduced RPMs and the "weaker" low RPM acceleration is not really a problem for me.
However, I'm really surprised by the gear indicator; it is always spot-on and never missed a beat (so far).
