Optimum gearing for daily driver
Alright, I am about to replace my drive chain and both front and rear sprockets. I have posted about this before and did a search also but what would be the optimum gearing for my 08 ZX10R that I use as a daily driver. I commute on the freeway 12 miles each way and other then that, its the backroads and streets. I live in Hawaii so top speed is not important at all. I want more low end torque and want to be able to wheelie more easily. I was thinking about doing the normal -1 in the front, then I thought about just going +3 in the rear and now I have kinda of compromised and was thinking about going -1 front / +1 rear. Is this too much? Your opinions would be greatly appreciated.
