Is the speed taken from the front wheel of your 2002 model? If so then you're goo to go. But if it's taken from the countershaft sprocket then it won't be right.

Keep searching. Any gearing change (up or down in front or back) on a 1998+ ZX-6R will affect the already inaccurate clocks.

So if any change will affect it, going with the front one is a cheaper prospect. To get everything back to "accurate" then I would have to install a yellow box correct?

Not "back to accurate", but "accurate." Your clocks have never been accurate to begin with.

Check out this thread.

Thanks for the other thread, good discussion there of the topic. I swear to God I searched for the info on the site. Apparently my searching skills are in need of a little tune-up.

Anyway, in reading that topic it sounds like the yellow box corrects the odometer error that is incurred by changing gearing, do you know if that is true? It's more the odometer than the speedometer that I am worried about, I don't want to be adding any extra miles that I'm not really riding.

Art, a little off topic but how are George and Jerry doing. How about your import/export business?

I would only be going up 2 teeth so I would be able to keep the stock chain (from what I've read). So I guess I'm just looking for someone to either verify that the above is true, or dispel this myth forever for me.

Thanks
