Good Quality!

Good sprocket! The quality is fairly high, and even after 7,900 miles on one front sprocket it looks like it has many thousands of miles left on it. Changed out stock gearing (Vortex front still) to a -1 and couldn't bring myself to toss out the "old" sprocket as it had way too much life left! Barely showed wear.

Poor durability okay quality manufacturing

Poor durability okay quality manufacturing. Out of the box it had some rough edges around the teeth. Only lasted 4K miles of canyon and street riding and the teeth opened up. I am unable to get a safe and proper chain slack. It is either too tight or too loose depending on the rotation. The original had 8K of street, canyon and 2 trackdays and still in good shape. I put back the original front sprocket and now I am able to get a proper chain slack. Checked and the original chain and rear sprockets are fine. Perhaps I got one that wasn't properly heat or cold treated..?

Front sprockets: unseen laborers

I got one tooth less this time. Leave you closer to your powerband when you ride. It's a sproket. A front sprocket, goes on the front. It's a good sprocket, no defects on delivery, smooth chain travel. It does what it should, it was a great price. I'm done, lol. It's a front sprocket. It's important, but there's little to be said about it. This one's actually very good though.

Name brand for a reason

Fits like stock, holding up well. I got the stock tooth size and have had no problems with it thus far, hopefully it lasts =]

I want to gear down my 2012 Yamaha R-1. I want to go from a 17t front sprocket to a 15T front sprocket. Will this effect my traction control system?
Will dropping from a 17t front sprocket to a 15T front sprocket on my 2012 Yamaha R-1 effect the traction control system? If so what can I do to make it work properly with the smaller front sprocket that will gear it down?

After doing some research it is found that the TC can adapt to gearing and tire change with out any manual input or settings adjustments. The ECU will sense under normal conditions, the speed difference difference between the front and rear wheel speed sensors, and utilize those readings to calibrate the TC so it will work properly.

You may need to remove a link but it's hard to say since chains stretch out over time. It's always recommended to change your chain when you change your sprockets but that's your call.
