Hay all,
I am looking to change the front sprocket (17 tooth) on my 2011 VT750 RS to a 16 tooth sprocket so that I can get better acceleration. I know that I will lose some speed on the top end but it sits happily in 4th gear at highway speeds so I am really not using that 5th gear.
I was hoping someone that has done this would be able to point me in the direction of a 16 tooth front sprocket that would fit as OEM doesn't have one listed for this purpose.

I would appreciate any help at all

Or you could switch to the stock 41T rear sprocket from the 750 Ace, you would need the 122 link chain. might need to modify the chain guard or possibly use the 750 Ace chain guard.

Interesting, the RS comes with a 38T rear sprocket, which is what a lot of the 750 Ace riders go to... I prefer the 17/39T combo on my 750 Ace. Rear sprocket carriers are the same,
