did you say 54?

As you will be doing wheelies and thats about it, if you are using a 54...

If thats a 45 tooth then you should have some quicker throttle response for sure and it will be right up.
the 03/04's have a good amount more wheelie power then the later 05/06 bikes..more midrange

-1 up fromt some people were saying that it ate up their chaines a lot faster. i went +2 in the rear. i was able to use stock chain. i have an 06 though. i say just get +2 rear, and if that is not enought for you then order a -1 front.

i guess thats what i can expect if i decide to change. right now stock, 80mph is about 7000rpm.

i did love the extra grunt that my 04 had with the -1.

Yeah. I did the -1/+2 setup and took it off because I got tired of the high rpm's. I did like how it pulled though.
