    1 down in front is 2.8 or so up in back.
    I did that with my 1000 and it makes a big difference.
    It is also cheaper.

    One down on the front let's you keep your stock chain. Going larger in the rear is the prefferable method but it requires a new rear sprocket and chain. For that reason one down at the front is the way to go for now but when it's new chain and sprockets time go back to stock on the front and bigger on the rear and cut the new chain to fit.

    Going smaller on the front will wear the chain and both sprockets faster than with the stock size. How much faster is a guess but if you figure that you'll get between 10 and 15% less kms of life then it's probably not far off.
    A backyard mechanic without a service manual is just like a hooker without a lamp pole.... they are both in the dark.
