    I feel the stock gearing on the TS660 is way too short, to the extent that 1st gear is almost unusable.  Today, I replaced the stock 16T sprocket with a 17T.  It has had the desired effect.  I can pull away in 1st without feeling the need to shift to 2nd almost immediately.  There is a considerable difference, and I'm very pleased with the result of this simple mod. Of course, it will also have the added benefit of revving lower in 6th gear during highway riding (once this bike is broken in!)   In case anyone else is interested in doing this mod, I used a JT Sprockets JTF565.17 which I bought on Amazon.

    Does anyone know what effect the 17T front sprocket has on chain slack?  Is there enough adjustment available to compensate for the effective shortening of the chain by having to fit around a bigger front sprocket?
    Last week I submitted the gearing details of the the Tiger Sport 660 with gearingcommander.com.
    They were approved and are now available at https://www.gearingcommander.com/

    I have a 17t on the way.  For anyone who's done it already, what size socket is the nut on the drive shaft?   I already had to go get a 27mm to adjust the chain, thought I'd get ahead of this one if I can!

    Not sure what you’d expect but the only time it’s likely to detract from performance would be moving off in 1st. You might need a touch more throttle initially but the engine is more than up to it even with the slightly taller gearing. It’s also possible you’d feel the need to use a lower gear on some hills or when cruising round town at slower speeds, but that takes nothing away from performance.

    I'm worried about one thing, does that affect quickshift?

    No. How could it?

    Hi Mark, how did you discover what part you needed exactly?

    I.e. how did you work out the JT565 bit? I can't find it listed anywhere, but I have found JT566.17 (https://www.thevisorshop.com/en/JT--Gearbox-Sprockets-JTF519JTF566JTF513-17T-KawasakiSuzukiYamaha/m-3378.aspx), just wondering if that would do the trick, or how UI would start looking if I were to consider different brand?

    Thanks,

    Adam.
