    dropped a tooth in the front

    So I replaced chain and sprockets today at mspeedPerformance on boundary /1st what a great place for service...never been there before

    Since I was replacing my sprockets and chain 34,000 kms I suggested getting an extra tooth on the back to get a little more kick on the bottom end....

    they suggeted dropping a tooth on the front, which i never knew...they said its like adding three teeth to the back

    Rode away feeling like I was on a new bike...amazing and would suggest it to anyone

    amazing service mspeedPerformance

    Did the same with the RC51. It only made the bike even more wheelie happy.

    I recently went back to stock, from being 1 tooth down in front. It has a little less pop down low, but my fuel mileage is WAY better! You'll notice on longer trips, that żoure mileage will suffer from revving out more on the freeway.

    Keep in mind that your odometer will be a little off from now on. Might want to make a note of your bike's current mileage so you can figure out the 'real' mileage in the future.

    Depends....many bikes read from the front wheel, sprocket changes have zero impact on some.

    My She-Strom is measured off the front wheel, yet slingshot's is affected by a sprocket change.

    Hmm... interesting. Haven't thought about that possibility... I just know that my old CBR125 was definitely affected by the change, so I figured I'd throw it out there .

    That's why there's an invention called "speedohealer". It'll convert to mph as well for when you go south of the 49th. And I'm with SoL .... I ran -1 on the front of my gixxer for 3 weeks. Extra acceleration was nice, but too buzzy on the highway, and fuel economy went down too. At least I was able to use 6th gear more than once a week
    If you wanna say something, speak into the mic. It's right above my balls.

    They're professionals when it comes to emptying a pocket book so if you decide to go that route remember that you are not paying them to be with you.

    You're paying them to leave.

    He didn't say someone else's new bike. Maybe he paid for sprockets and got a free bike as a prize or something?

    Another part of the equation is the angle between upper run of chain and the swingarm. This has a massive effect on the handling of the bike when getting on the throttle (like exiting a turn) and would be why darkcbr noticed his RC51 became more wheelie happy.

    Bikes capable of 300km'h rarely see it, so this is a great mod for almost every URBAN rider out there. My 10R had one down on the front....on a bike capable of 160 in first this help it launch off the lights a little better and she could pop the wheel in 4th on the highway !!
