Chain and Gearing

I am pretty new to chain bikes. I had a Roadstar Warrior and Buell for awhile. I just sold both of those bikes and got a Speed Triple and a 05 636. I am looking to get new chain and sprokets. Should I keep stock gearing or change it? I was also given this link for a speedo healer but I don't know what version to get.

For the SpeedoDRD or SpeedoHealer, you're going to have to buy the universal kit for it to work on the 05-06 ZX-6R. Unfortunately they don't make a plug and play version. This involves splicing into and soldering the device to the speed sensor. I personally have a SpeedoHealer v4.

I have a +2 sprocket in the rear for a bit more aggressive feel. I kept the front sprocket at stock gearing because I didn't want to eat the chain too fast.

+2 on the rear sprocket is pretty common and as mentioned above makes the bike accelerate a bit better with sacrificing too many RPM's while riding down the highway.

As mentioned above both the SpeedoDRD and the SpeedoHealer need to be spliced into the wiring to work on a 05/06 ZX6R.

If you want to see what gearing changes do you your bike check out: www.gearingcommander.com

By the way I have a speedohealer off a 2005 636 for $80. It's about 2 months old. PM me if you want it.

I was told I should try -1 in the front and +1 in the back. Would that kill me in the highway. Also I plan to get as much track time as possible. Thanks for the response. I am interested in the speedohealer.

If you want to be running 8500-8700rpm on the highway at 80mph..

I run a -1/+2 on my 05 636 and love it. It revs around 8500 at 80 on the highway but with a 15,500 rpm redline, it's well within the tolerances of the engine. My stock scion tc in 5th on the highway at 75mph is at like 3700 rpm out of the 6200 rpm redline, which I feel is similar stress to the engine. But hey, what does toyota know about reliability

So I found a used kit from a 2006 ZX10 with +1/+2. Would this kit work for my bike. I am not worried about engine strain. I know it can handle it. With the two brothers that would be kinda loud! I think I want to try -1/+1.

-1/+1 for an 06 ZX-10R would be 16/41(17/40 stock). Your stock gearing is 15/43.

That chain and sprocket set would get you +1/-2. The opposite of what you want to do.


Edit: Don't cheap out, just go buy a new chain and sprocket set. Here's a link. Just select your bike, the gearing you want(14/44), and the chain you want from the pull down menus.
