I need to fit my old falco front 16tooth to my new rsv

On the falco it was easy, leave chain on etc..
With the RSV it seems to be a bit more involved, do I need to split the chain?

Also anyone got an RSV with the new metzlers on
I don�t like em and think my bike is slow at turning in
Any help or views appreciated

No need to split the chain, drop the lower fairing, remove the the sprocket cover taking care of the wires attached, slacken right off the rear wheel adjusters, its a fiddle but now you can change the sprocket.

Easy m8, twat the sprocket cover with 2pound hammer the plastic will give way nicely, insert crowbar between sprocket and engine, force off, fit new.

do not worry about any possible damage, warranty should cover that.

see you tomorrow for this simple job.

Fast
