Hi all,

I`ve heard from people that changing sprockets (- teeth in front, + in back) help to lift the front..

Anyone have a recommended sprocket setup for me ? It's a 2000 Zx6R with Kerker slip on.

Also, if at all possible, would be a plus is I didn't have to change the chain (just did). Thanks. Let me know..

just go one down in the front and see what it does....it also pretty cheap.
if that's not good enough for you go up some in the back. i think +three in the back is equal to -1 in the front.

You can use the stock chain if you go -1 in the front. If you can't do wheelies now -1 isnt going to help. The only thing that is going to help is practice and seat time.

Good point miny. I could do wheelies with the stock sprockets but I needed that little extra push to hold them up, so I went +2 in back. I practiced alot with the stock until I could ride out first and second gear. Now I want to get the wheel up quicker so that I can ride a slower wheelie so I am going -1 in front to lower my speed a little more.

IF your getting faster and faster then your not at the balance point. Once your at the balance point you can just hold a constant speed.

Trust me, I know where the balance point is. Just not comfy with it yet. My second standup ended up in tragedy as my knee and parts of my bike show. I am still working on using the throttle, brake, and balance point to my advantage.

My video cam went out, so till I find someone with the same can all the footage I have is lost. I do have have a lot of new footage which is nothing but tricks on the stuntbike but I don't own the d/v camcorder we use so I dont have the footage at home to play with. I will see what I can do, also saving some of the footage for our video coming out.
