Here's the front sprocket I have: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B004ZIVOZS


Here's the rear: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B000GS3O40


and my chain: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B00TQQUSRE


SprocketCenter does a good job listing our default sizes: https://sprocketcenter.com/street-sp...2010-2013.html


Zar was trying to help you, but you didn't answer their question.

Hello, first of all thank you for your answer. I dont see any question my friend, if i missed something im really sorry. Can you please tell me if there is any difference between a 112 link chain and 114? Cause i found DID chain set(15-42,525 for z1000 2010 but with 114 links). Thank you again.

You never say what year your bike is. I had to guess based on your profile photo.

Yes, the 114 link chain has 114 links, so it's longer. If you have a chain breaking tool, you will be able to shorten it.


Also, if you're doing this yourself, get the D.I.D chain tool. It's easily the best one I've tried.

You re right, i m so sorry, i didn't notice that. Paying local kawasaki to install the chain and sprockets is cheaper than buying the tool so i think i will go to them with the chain to install it .Thanks very much for your help. For the record i have a gen 3 one .

i know BUT if im gonna use it every 30000, that means i will use it every 2-3 years for me ,change the chain costs 20-30 euro , so to catch up the price of the tool (90-100 euro here in Greece ) i m gonna need 4 to 6 years. I can live with that.
