Need new Gearing..

Ok I love my 2012 ZX10r but my biggest bitch with my bike is it really has no lower end gear power..Tired of other stock bikes pulling away from me and im full throttled.....Im not a big guy either. thinking of changing my sprockets out..

i just coverted to a 520 chain setup with a -1 in the front and +2 in the back and i must say it improved low end ALOT. Rifleman throttle insert will also get it there even faster than normal.

I have two buddies that ride 2010 bmw stock and they both pull away from me in lower gears . Bike is slow as shit till about 6k rpm then it bike takes off . And is way faster then both Bmw at 5 and 6th gear. I need more lower end since most track riding and street riding for that matter is run in 1,2,3, gears... anyways
My set up
2012 zx10r abs, ecu flashed , emissions removed except cat. Thats next to come off. Slip on can installed now.
Thanks for any info

Yep throw some gear at it. Kill the cat when you can. Can you shave any weight anywhere? Little things add up weight wise.

I know it sounds silly but if you can swing it get yerself a Anti-Gravity battery for instant weight savings and if you buy sprockets go for what is light with maybe some Ti nuts
