Sprocket setup for higher top speed

Hey guys
I am about to buy some new sprockets and chain. Need to know which setup is best for high top speeds without killing the acceleration. I weigh only 55kg. Also send me a link to where i can buy from. Thanks

Either he typed wrong numbers or that's one little dude! Bike should fly with a person that size if can get enough weight over the front to keep it down.

My best favorite gearing is
-1
+3


Anything for top speed kills acceleration

What's yours top out at? I'm -1+2 which is perfect for my taste but tops out quick. Top speed on mine is 174.

+1 on the front can take you over 200mph but it accelerates like shit.

What is your redline set at? Mine should be 500 over stock. Maybe my speedo was reading low or its because I had on a pretty large back pack.
