    Rsv4 RF 2016 sprocket

    I saw some posts but i am still confused about this. I have a 2016 Rf with the locking kit installed. I want to change the gearing to -1/+1 and also fit a 520 chain...
    Do i have to buy specific sprocket? Can i just use any sprocket and remove the fixing kit ? Can i use a sprocket from a previous model ?

    Removing the fixing plate would be a mistake, the newer bikes with more hp need that plate to prevent the sprocket nuts/studs from loosening.

    Just make sure that whatever sprocket you install is the same thickness (at the mounting flange) as the OEM sprocket.

    Well I can't find many brands tha sell a sprocket for 2016. I think I saw driven ( that it's hard to find a dealer in Europe) but no other brands. Are the aluminium sprocket thinner in general?

    I use Superlite steel sprockets. Ive used the Driven aluminum and they will wear much quicker than steel.

    Rsv4 RF 2016 sprocket

    I have a 2016 RSV4. I did a -1/+1 gearing change.
    Used Superlite steel sprockets with 520 chain.
    The bike runs great.

    AF1 recommended steel driven for my 16 Tuono with the fixing plate. I went to a 520 chain & sprockets later
    and bought a driven 520 steel from them.
