View Full Version : 15T Swingarm clearance

05-03-2013, 02:31 AM
Hi Guys,

First post :) Short version on why i want to fit a 15T --- I live in Johannesburg South Africa, which is about 1690m above sea level and as a result on avg we have around 18% less power than at the coast. :bangwall:

To compensate for this i am looking to fit a 15T front cog (and perhaps even go to a 42 in the back too) to help bring some of the lost acceleration due to power back. Does anybody have a 15T fitted on their 1200? I just want to make sure there are no swingarm clearance issues with regards to the chain. I did a search but the posts that i found were for the Shiver and DD750...

Thanks for the help and advice in advance :cool:

Not to worry thanks guys, think i am rather going for a 43 at the rear :cool:

The 15t in front is about the same as the 43t in back. You should be good to go. Welcome to the forum!

No issues with the 15T should you wish to go that route.

Your bike will be the first one I know of with a 3:1 rear:front tire rotation :)

Hehe, then add a DNA stage two which is on its way and I think it will be golden :)

Fit the 15t and DNA stage two, there is a noticeable difference in how the bike accelerates and much easier to get the front wheel up :) . Only thing is it's running really rich now, does it take the ECU a while to adjust and sort the fuelling out once you put the stage 2 in? If not then i am going to go back to stock filter and just chuck the 43t at the back on :)
