the caponord uses the same rear sprocket mount as other models such as the dorsoduro so its easy to get hold of a range of different size rear sprockets.i've fitted a 44 tooth renthal in place of the standard 42.this has made it better at low speeds in traffic,improved acceleration and made 6th more flexible.as standard my rear wheel was 5 divisions back on the wheel alignment and now its on four so i could have gone even larger without needing to change chain length.
no difference in handling or stability with slightly shorter wheelbase,hammering it in 3rd and fourth more fun.

Thanks for that, I went down one tooth on my previous steed which made it lots more rideable - may try it on this. Anyone know how many teeth on the front sprocket?

I'd definitely consider this. Let's face it, having higher revs in 6th is hardly going to be a problem on the Capo. Did you install a Yellow Box or similar to adjust the speedo to give correct read outs? If so, how easy is it on the Capo?

My understanding is that traction control and ABS are both driven from sensors on the wheel, so changing the sprocket size would have no effect on either system. Is this right?

Sorry Mr Pope, no idea on the front sprocket size.

caponord is 17 tooth front,42 rear as standard.i haven't changed anything that the capo uses to calculate the speed so its still as inaccurate as ever.70 mph is 65 according to sat nav,37 mph shows as 33/34 on sat nav

Ah, that's cool. I just assumed it would mess with the speedo as that's been the case on bikes I've owned before. Thanks Beeney!

I bought on ebay a front sprocket for the Dorsoduro 1200, it has 16 teeth. Now running at 240 km / h (150 miles / hour) into the limiter.
The gear ratio fits much better on the road, the passage in 6th gear is as you would expect from a 1200cc

I'm looking to move to a 16 tooth front sprocket but I'm having difficulty locating one online from a dealer that will ship to Australia. Just curious what brand you guys got and where you found them. Thanks!

Today was the first day I rode it wit the 16 tooth front and it does indeed make it easier to ride in traffic without slipping the clutch at around 30mph (50km/h)

Thanks again for the info guys. About to head out on my first decent ride and will see how I go with the stock gearing. Nice to see that the option is there if needed.

Hi Fredaroony

Do u know if 15 tooth will be too much?

my main purpose is to be able to travel at gear 1 or 2 at 10-20km/hr smoothly.
cos theres alot of traffic Jam in Singapore.

and after u install 16tooth.
what is the lowers Speed u can travel at Gear 3?

Cos I also discover I normally travel at Gear 3 at 50-60km/hr.
and when I come close to a traffic jam and slow down to 20-30km/hr
I am unable to just use Gear 3 at 20km/hr and use gear 3 to accelerate the bike back to 60km/hr.

Can advice me?
thanks
