Default Couple questions

This is on a 2000 rsvr I pulled my front sprocket cover to count teeth.the front is 16 and the rear is 43. My question is; is this stock and if not then what is. Also with the front sprocket off and the bike in gear if I turn the output shaft counter clockwise and mark it at the 12 0'clock spot I can turn the shaft clockwise to the 1 0'clock position. Is that too much slack in the gears? Seems excessive. What is normal? Thanks

Welcome to the forum.

For a question as model specific as that, don't expect an instant answer. It may take several days before anyone who knows to check in......if ever.

Have you done any online searches to see if you could find a parts list ........or a fourm that specializes more in Aprilia ??

Have you searched for dealers......because I think that's where you are gonna have to end up probably.

After using google for 30 seconds:Heres how changing your sprockets effects your 04 RSV - ApriliaForum sponsored by AF1 Racing, inc.

Looks like it's a bit shorter than stock. +0 +3 if it's the same as the '04

I have no idea what the spec is on slack in the gear. Try asking on the forums I linked, much more likely to find an answer there.

Is there a problem? Usually they came with a 42/17 Looks like prior owner was looking for some more torque off the bottom. Is there aproblem with the backlash between the gears when your driving it? If not it's most likely normal.

At this point, the problem is that he hasn't been on to check for any replies since his post........about 3 months ago.
