Renthal new Ducati quick change chainwheel

Renthal has developed a new quick change rear chainwheel carrier to fit the Ducati 1198 and 1198S Superbikes. This carrier will also fit the Streetfighter and 1098 models. This is a direct bolt on replacement for the one piece OEM steel carrier and allows for easy rear sprocket changes along with a significant reduction in weight.

The Renthal carrier is machined from lightweight billet aluminum and when used in conjunction with our hard anodized aluminum rear chainwheel, the weight savings is a full pound, which will provide a greater transfer of power to the rear wheel.

>> Carrier is CNC machined from billet 6082 T-6 aluminum

>> Utilizes the OEM cush drive bushings (6 total)

>> Total weight savings is 40% over the OEM steel one piece unit

>> When installing the Renthal carrier, you must use the matching Renthal rear chainwheel

>> Rear chainwheels are CNC machined from 7075 T-6 aluminum and hard anodized for increased longevity.

>> Rear chainwheels are available in 37, 38 and 39 tooth in both 525 and 520 chain pitch
