I am geting ready to modify my gearing. I'm debating between going -1 in front or +3 in the rear, or both. Who else has modified gearing and how do you like it? Which gearing mod would you recommend for me (I am hoping to make my power-on wheelies in first easier, and be able to do them in 2nd as well). Also, what size chain could I expect to need to use with the different sprockets? Thanks alot guys! ;)

No matter what gearing you do, dont get your hopes up on power wheelies in 2nd, it wont happen, you will still have to do a standup or just clutch it in 2nd. On my first 6r I went -1 in the front which was pretty good. On the 6r I have now I have -2 and +5 in the rear, but thats for stunts.

Yeah, recently changed my gearing on my 2000 it was 15-40, I have gone down one to a 14 and up 2 in the rear to a 42, it's a different bike,all throught the gear range. Appart of course from not having much of first gear because its so short,so idon't kmow why you would bother doing this for first power wheelies,maybee 2-3rd this thing is really rockin, it rides more like it should I mean now the engine is really working, instead of having to go down a gear or 2 to get some revs up, no need just roll it on,
the speedo is out by out 10ks,and a slight loss of top end power from say 200 kms onwards, I am not sure excatly,but who cares I am rarely there, Now this is street weapon, cMON line up all you bitch's.that should read gixers well thats what i was thinkin, yeah great![:0]:D[^]
p.s where is the spellchecker on this, I can't spell for shit obviously

I have the stock sprocket in the front, but I got a sweet 42 from Sprocket Specialists, and I went with a gold RK chain that's a 520 with a 110(?) links.

Just for some bottom end punch. Not much, but just enough...
