    Front sprocket - rubber damped

    Hi,  ordered a new chain and sprocket kit and optes for the rubber damped version listed against an S1000XR (no price difference to undamped).

    Any known issues with fitting the rubber damped version (current sprocket doesnt have it, presumed to be oem)

    Cheers

    Rubber damped sprockets are just superior to regular ones in all ways nowadays, as long as they are for the bike no reason to look back

    Cheers Antares,  just wasn't sure if there was any trimming to do.  Did find an old post from 2019 from Winger that confirms it'll fit ok as well😁

    Original's done ok at 18k miles
    Cheers

    Have one on mine, no issues at all, a little quieter too.
