    How many incidences of issues/damage after installing 17 tooth front sprocket?

    The title pretty much says it all. I'm looking for reports of issues , particularly engine case damage/rub after the 17 tooth change. I've had mine on a couple of thousand miles and all looks good. Wondering if modifying the rear is a better alternative, thus the request.
        Thanks in advance, FG

    I recently changed to the 17 Tooth Front Sprocket. I've only done about 600 miles thus far. No issues - No problems - No error codes. I have a 2023 model year.

    Over a week and over 200 views and no reports of damage/issues.... so we got that going for us! Besides the thread that informed about the engine case damage along with warranty claim issues, I haven't really heard about a rash of problems. Please correct me, if I haven't dug deep enough. Once again , thanks in advance.

    I've only seen the one report of damage, which also included what seemed to be an overly loose chain and damage to the teeth of the 17t sprocket.   Over 25000km on my 17t now, things are still golden.
