track, gen5, I would start -1F, see how it feels, and start from there...

if you want the excel file I use I have one with gen4 and gen5 on the other sheet, so you can compare, just needs your tire circunference...

That would be cool, thanks.
I have my tire circumference also on my phone. I used that in the TC portion of the Woolich Flash (Pirelli Super Corsa SP 200/55)

No street here, but I range between 17/40 and 17/42 depending on the track.

Track only here, I do 16-39 or 16-40. I prefer 16-39 so I can use first gear to rocket out of slow corners.
Keeping the stock front at 17 and doing 40-42 in rear like Niner1000RR is actually better for chain wear, but you will need to get longer chain to keep your wheelbase fairly long.

Are you having any clearance issues between the swingarm pivot and the chain? I test fit a 15 to the counter shaft and even with a 41 on the rear, which would raise the chain a little, there didn't seem to be enough room between the pivot and the chain at the swingarm angle I run. So I haven't gone any smaller than 16 front.

No problems at all after 2 years of track duty (~7k miles or so), and 2 sets of gears/chain.

Garage
15-38
Equivalent to 17-43, but has improved drive on corner exit due to the reduced squat to stand range of the swing arm. Also slightly reduces wheelbase.

Have to be very precise with the throttle on exit though else you can end up robbing yourself of time due to the front lifting and the rear stepping out.

Also make sure the swing arm and chain have the correct measurements to ensure that under decel when the rear end squats, the chain goes in a straight line from the top of the front sprocket to the rear. When you downshift the chain ripples like a whip crack and if it has to move up or down to meet the front sprocket teeth then it can jump a tooth or completely jump the sprocket.
