Sprockets -1/+1

We all know many have gone to a 16T, but how many have also gone +1 on the rear of the bike? What are you experiences and is there that much of a change versus the 16T?

I know some 1000RR riders that swear by that combo.

I am getting ready to try that combo.

I have +1 in the rear and a 16T sitting in my Garage.

I will let you know my thoughts.

ouch bikemike....that will probably limit first gear to about 80 or 85....oh no!!! Funny since i have gotten use to our bikes going around 100 in first, everything else seems slow but I think that but my R1 would redline in first at 81-84 and i thougth that was a tall first gear...

I love the 16T, but honestly think this bike can safely get more. My bike is not wheelieing more unless I ask it to, altought there is more head shake. That calls for a damper, which could still handle the +1 in the rear....My rear end is not steeping out on me like I thought it would and we have been having cold road temps, warmer weather should be even better. I wanted to replace my rear with alloy anyways, so this is the best way to accomplish it I recon...if I hate it...ebay it, right? My only hope is that the alloy rear doesn't create vibrations that go into the clip-ons and make my hands go numb. I have 0 vibes now and vibes are a deal breaker.

i did the -1/+2, it runs like a 2 stroke. My friend rode it and said the bike was addicitve now he is thinking of trading his bike in for a 10r. it is better than doing a power mod. it is the shiznit. only con is you can't gun it because the wheelies are scary, but the accelration is rocket like. i love the bike now even more it is fun, do it as soon as possible.

You have a steering damper or plan on getting one. My next plans are for the brakes to be done and damper, then PCIII. Following that, it will be spring and I will begin to power up so I can do a true back to back testing.

I don't know if this relates but with just the 16t the Speedo Healer correction is 7%, I estimate it will be 11.5% (after adding 2 up in the rear). So..... using that number would put the top of first at 93 mph if it is 105 stock. The 16t is so much fun and I feel there is more room on the tall first gear, and I want a longer chain is my reason for changing. I never made it to the track (dragstrip) this year but this gearing should work in the spring.
If I roll the power on to full at the start of first gear and lay on the tank the bike raises up but not over, but if you "chop it" in the power band your going over......Big Fun!!
