Sprocket compatibility
« on: July 31, 2019, 11:14:18 AM »
Hi all, does anyone know if the front and rear sprockets are compatible across all GW250s?

I have an L3 and just wanted to know if sprockets listed for an L5 would fit.

Thanks

Hi
Yes, nothing changes on the bikes so all parts are interchangeable - better off going for a smaller front one or larger rear though
I was born with nothing and I still have most of it left !

Don't  you mean larger front or smaller rear!

Thanks for the info.

I'm doing a mix of city and motorway, was thinking 14 on the front and 39 on the rear, does that sound reasonable?

Well I don't know the ratio's any more but I have seen figures on previous threads about different sprockets. May be worth you having a look around on there?

One thing to remember though is that you will have to recalculate your speed yourself as the speedo will no longer give you a reading for what you are allegadly doing ;)

I do the same sort of riding 70% city 30% motorway,
15t front sprocket made it so much nicer to ride, the Speedo now reads about 1-2mph over actual speed which is great. Also you don't needs to adjust the length of the chain. The only thing the 15t sprocket seems to be unobtainable in the UK but you can get it online from Ali-express genuine Suzuki part.

I second the positive aspects of 15t front sprocket.

I do mostly highway (100km/h) and drops your rpm by 500.

Im tempted to get a smaller BACK sprocket to get even lower rpms at high speed... but I would have to go with either 41t or even 39t... meaning i would probably have to shorten the chain. I have some hills over here and Im kind of weary of having to drop to 5th or even 4th with more frequency. Shortening the chain to try it out, however, is a nono.

15t on the front is a very easy mod (except for getting that damm nut off, check the threads for tips on that). It gives you a smoother ride at the top end, a little increase in top speed, and not so much power loss at the bottom end.
