I recently put on a muzzy slip-on, got rid of that stupid mudguard thing and put some blue led plate holders on. Now i want a sprocket in the front but don't know which one? Any and all help would be great!!!

It depends any aftermarket sprocket you get will be alum. and if you chain is getting worn it will tear it up. In that case replace it all. Now if it doesn't have many miles then you can just change it out with no prob. Did you want brands or sizing? Ok heres both! Brands- Vortex is really nice but a little pricey sprocket specialist is a little cheaper but still decent. There are also afam,renthal..... As for sizing? Depends on what you want to do. Many people say if you are a normal rider and will be mainly on the street then just drop down 1 to a 14 in front. For the front thats about as far as you wanna go cause if you get to small it will get torn up. Me personally like to ride wheelies. I have the full yoshi rs3 race titanium race system along with a power commander and a 14 in front and a 42 in the rear plus have lost a few pounds by converting to a race body. I can honestly say thats plenty fast and didn't lose very much top end.

I put the -1 down tooth on the front sprocket, I noticed a aprox. 200 rpm difference. It revved about 200rpms more than normal. In 4th gear,at 4000 rpms I was doing 40mph. Now im doing 4200 at 40mph with new sprocket.

Today, I added 3 teeth in the back, result...rpm is the same 4200 at 40mph. Honestly, it almost looks like 4100rpms at 40mph believe it or not. 1st gear seemed a little more typsy, 2nd gear clutch drop, front end popped up a little more than normal, but it still will not pull up in 2nd gear.

I have a 2002 ninja 600....of course...in green. Rest of the bike is stock. stock chain also.

Er, you do know that that your speedo gets affected as well? So unless you've got a yellow box or something you're not doing 40 even if your speedo is reading that.

You can use the Actual Speed Calculator to find your correct speed. /forum/speedcalc.asp

Or check with a gps or roadside speed indicators, if ya have em.
