mikey, The '02 model came with two different swingarms, single sided and double sided. OEM gearing for the DSSA is 19T/44T, the SSSA is 18T/42T. Whether you stay with the original gear ratios or not after market parts will be less expensive than those sourced from the dealer.

Buy a quality X-ring chain and steel sprockets.

Mikey, I just installed a DID chain, good kit. I 'broke it in' for the first 100 miles to keep from stretching it in sections (basically no rough downshifts or big throttle accelerations) and only have one slightly tight area. I don't really know if this helps, just my usual habit with a new chain.

Which Rear sprockets does fit the 2004 955i Daytona? I'm seeing a lot of rear sprockets that fits the 01-02 models...Do they fit also the newer one? What about speed triple, do their rear sprockets fit -04 and up Daytona?

Just a heads-up for anyone considering new chain - CycleGear has Stockton chain breaker/riveter kit on sale this weekend through Monday for $29.99
Just picked one up this morning - good deal!

I bought one last year at the same price. A good chain tool. Last year the sale price was associated with deals on chain/sprocket kits so worth checking that also.
