According to my .pdf copy of the 01-03 750SS manual, the "final driven sprocket" torque setting is 88 N-m (9.0 kgf-m, 65 lbf-ft).

Also, the Brake stopper arm is 20 N-m (2.0 kgf-m, 14lbf-ft) & the rear axle nut is 93 N-m (9.5 kgf-m, 69 lbf-ft).

I just love it that the rear nut requires 69 lbf-ft of torque. Fuck yeah!

Love the 38t. my bike gets up to around 85 before going to 5th gear (had to try it once). i mostly cruise around 55/60 mph and its perfect for that. By far the best mod --- more so than hypercharger and cobras !!!!!

If anybody's looking for the 39T, bikebandit.com has a JT sprocket steel sprocket in stock:

http://www.bikebandit.com/product/17...=7740&t=1&td=1

I searched some posts here and it looked like that'd be the best balance for me.

This is going to be a whole hell of a lot cheaper than buying a vtx1300 because I hate that this bike sounds like it's going to blow up on the highway and that I have to shift mid turn after a stoplight.

Thanks.

Don't be that guy!

Just wanted to share my experience with you guys and maybe someone can learn from my mistake. I recieved my 38 tooth sprocket set within 3 days of ordering. That was really awsome. The chain came with two master links. One was rivit type and the other was a clip type. Unfortunately for me I was short the clip for the master link. So now my bike is torn down and my dreams of riding around enjoying my new gear ratios are on hold till I get the part. hopefully the stealership will have a link that I can use and wont have to wait for JT Sprockets to send me a new one. Sure wish I had checked my parts prior to cutting a perfectly good chain.

i put a 39T on my when i did the CBR swap. right off the bat i could notice a chance in the way the bike took off and sounded. i had to give it a little more gas on take off and didn't shift into 3rd till around 40 something and 5th around 50 something. all in all, i think i am gonna like the smaller sprocket.

i didn't get to ride it very far because i have to refab the brake stay. but i can't wait to actually get it out on the highway and see how it feels.

Only have 2 or 300 miles on this mod. Did the 38T, really like the RPM drop but there is a downside....my bike lost some SERIOUS ass. I ride kinda hard, love quick starts and getting up to speed fast and this mod killed all that.

If you are doing this mod and don't have the tools or know-how to cut links out of your chain you can buy a 600 VLX chain and use that. It is stock 120 link and is 525 pitch. I bought mine from race-driven on ebay for $64.95 with shipping. Not sure how well it will hold up against the $150 chains but it seems good for now.
