Well, have to wait another week to install my 19T - somewhere around 2015 or so they changed the sprocket and chains on the America from a 525 to a 520, so the one from my dealer didn't fit ... *sigh* - got one ordered, should be here in about a week ...

Mine is a '15, I would have to look at production date at home but it has a 525 still.

When you get the new sprocket to suit the 520 chain could you let the forum know where they sourced it from, I have had no luck at this stage at finding one, have got a 19 tooth 525 sprocket,will probably get new chain & rear sprocket when the 520 set up wears out. Thanking you John.

Have you tried TPP in South Australia? I got mine from there but it's a 2007 model.

I bought mine from SprocketCenter; it is a Superlite brand, part #88801R

Fit like a champ - installed it on Friday.

Cutfinger - hate to admit it, but I just installed the sprocket over the weekend and haven't got to take the bike on a shakedown cruise .... I'm hoping that this upcoming weekend is a motorcycle road trip so that:

A - I can regain some much-needed sanity!

B - I can report on the results from installing the 19T sprocket

Wish me luck with work, wife, and weather ... if everything gels I'll have a report this time next week!

Well - 5 months later and I have some information *finally*

The 19 tooth seems to have zero effect on normal riding, acceleration and ability to hold speed - the speedometer is finally dead on accurate according to the GPS, throughought all normal riding speeds.

Happy with the mod and glad I finally was able to get out - life's been crazy!

17T on the 06 Speedy

I have been running a 17T on the Speedy for the past two years. Makes acceleartion and mountains much, much better, and two up or tourinng it's a no brainer if you are doing anything else but flat. It would still cruise at 80mph all day if needed, but Im'm a 65mph kind of person so it is perfect. Yes it will still fly over 100mph if for some reason it was needed. I would only change it if I was living or visiting somewhere that was pretty flat, perhaps up to the 19T in Holland :-)
