Hi all, Can you share your experience with modifying your sprocket sizings. It's time for a new chain and I figured I might want to try a different sizing on the sprockets. I'm plagued by the fact that I want it all - Higher acceleration would be nice as I do a lot of city riding and having some extra 'umph' in 1st would be great. However, I also do a lot of touring - and having lower revs cruising at highway speeds, and also better gas mileage, also appeals to me. I'm riding a 99 where the stock is 17 F / 43 R. Has anyone ever tried going lower in the rear and/or higher in the front to lower those revs?
EDIT: My title is wrong, I need +1/-2. I was wondering if anyone had any aftermarket 3rd gen sprockets (+1/-2 setup, larger front, smaller rear) I can borrow for a couple of days, for a small fee. I'm trying to screw around with the calibration of my speedometer and something other than the stock ratio would help. I won't be doing wheelies or drag racing on your setup, mostly because I don't want to hurt my chain. So if you have a 17T front and a 41T or even 40T rear, and are willing to ship it to the northern Virginia area, please email me how much you'd like for such a service (or PM but I have varying results getting notified of PMs). Nominally I'm thinking $20 + ~$10 for shipping. email@example.com Thanks!!!
