What matters is the final drive ratio, not the number of teeth. Personally, I prefer staying with the stock number of teeth on the front sprocket and do all the ratio changing with the rear sprocket (and the length of the chain) ... it puts less stress on the chain, and it reduces the tendency of the chain rubbing on the plastic guide on the swingarm.


Helibars, MRA screen, Ohlins damper, reversed shift pattern, sorted suspension, braided lines, Michelin Pilot Power, all else stock 'coz it's fast enough!

the only prob i see is that your gear is too tall if your only trapping 5th,you wana almost be at the end of 6th.that short first gear is meant so that you dont have to run a short gear...maybe a 15-42?the bike seems like its making good power to be running that mph with your weight.i wish i ran 1/4 more so i had a bit more knowledge on this.ive heard good and bad about the short first gear...some guys love it and others say its worthless

IMO
U dont want to trap in 6th, 5th is the gear u want to trap in(on motor). Why? 1 extra shift and u leave no room for more hp trapping in 6th.

Imo you want to be at the top of 5th. If the 16 44 has you almost at the limiter try 17 46 that should put you about 12 grand in 5th

I asked RG about what gear we should be going through the traps in....he told me top of 6th.....I went from trapping in the top of 5th to the top of 6th and it helped a bunch.

Stock motor, Grudge ZX10 (( Walter White ))

Bike makes more tq in sixth...

Stay away from a small front sprocket, 16 if you have to, 17 is even better. I'm going to an 18 soon enough actually.
