Guys, I wouldn't have said "that JT is the correct one" if I didn't mean it. Don't trust the eBay compatibility tool, its often wrong.

Here is the proof:

All good if you're lost man, no worries! JTF1537RB will fit the Z900. The reason it is only listed in the 15T section in the catalogue is due to that being the stock setup. The 16T version will still fit, only difference is the extra tooth! Hope that helps!

Got a reply also

Hello
Yes this will fit your bike. The ebay compatibility list that they make us use is missing thousands of bikes and models so does not work properly at the moment.
My advice would be to go off the bike in the item title.

A short time ago I replaced the chain and both sprockets on my Z900. At 5000 miles, they were only slightly worn - my main reason was to achieve a more long-legged feel to the gearing, rather than buzzing around everywhere with more revs than necessary.

I bought all JT stuff:- 16T rubber-cushioned front  JTF1537RB-16 , 41T steel rear  JTR148941, and a silver Z3 chain  JTC525Z3NN114RL.
Everything fitted nicely and the chain runs with no high or low tension areas. Very impressive.

The gear ratios are now more to my liking. I can set off in 1st without having to hurriedly tread into second before the revs (or front wheel) rise too much. All the gears are now more useable and I feel I have 6 useable gears for different circumstances, rather than dancing around in the top two or three gears most of the time. This better suits my style of riding. There is so much torque and power available from the Z that it still pulls the higher gearing easily. In fact it launches and continues to accelerate more seamlessly, since less upshifts are needed, as Jasper rightly said in another thread.

3rd gear now gets 60mph @ 5500rpm (was 6400)
4th gear now gets 60mph @ 4750rpm (was 5600)
6th gear now gets 70mph @ 4100rpm (was 4750)

I have a 17T front sprocket in my toolbox which I might try later, but for now I am well pleased with 16/41.

p.s. speeds/revs are via sat nav. The Z speedo now reads about 6% fast.

Who in their right mind would design a vehicle that falls over when it stops?
