In my parts manual online it says the stock one is a 12 tooth. But, on mine, there is an 11 tooth sprocket. How do I know which came on it? I see references online where others have stock 11 tooth sprockets. I ordered a 12, but wondering if I need to put an 11 on it like it had. I have no idea if its original. The one on it now is a Sunstar 11 tooth.

WHich is right? Does it matter? I know a smaller tooth up front makes it peppier, but is it enough to matter? Is the stock gearing not good enough? No where, in 1986, 1987 or 1988 do I see an 11 tooth front sprocket, so I don't know why anyone would have one stock.

you might have to get another chain if you switch back to 12 t from 11 t , there may be enough of adjustment but then again there might not be ------I know when I was running my 200sx , I had to keep cutting links off every so often as the chain was stretching

Well, the only chain available for it that was good is an 84 link and the stock is 80. I assume I can just remove a few links??
