yea, best gearing that will work for most tracks and for the street is a final drive ratio around 3.0. So, just drop the one in the front as everyone else posted, that puts the ratio at 3.07, 14 front, 43 rear.
I just hate to have that POS steel sprocket out back..
and did i mention you will lose about 1/2 lb?
I cant recall the last time i had a steel rear sprocket on a bike, after i had owned the bike that was like one of the 1st mods done.
lighter rotating mass, better quality, and looks as well...
But yeah it is $75.00 verus like $18.00 for a front sprocket
I actually went -1,+4 but, I don't ride on the street and do only 1/4 mile stuff because it keeps the bike up in the power band and I can get through all 6 gears by the end of the run. I have a 16t front for when I do track dyas to get the bike close to stock gearing though and take stress off the chain by opening up the radius around the front sprocket. I love my ultralght renthal front and rear sprockets though they are sweet.
