For those of you thinking about changing up your gearing, here's some interesting reading to help you get where you're going, quicker!

This pic is informative but hard to read. Copy save as and enlarge if you need to. (Chart link provided by Bdog1v1 :cheers )

Good find! On my 03 gsxr600 I went down one size in the front and up three sizes in the back, and added an EK chain. It made a WORLD of difference!! Probably lost some top end, but I still got it up to 176mph (eventhough the speedo is off when sprockets are changed). But the main thing was how fast the RPMS went up through. Shifting was so much faster ...1-6 gear took hardly anytime at all. Made the bike really fun.

176 mph? Funny, my bike is the same year and model with a few mods inlcuding 520 chain conversion kit etc and I don't even come close to that number.

It sure is going to be a lot quicker with that gearing! But not faster. No way it will see anywhere near 176mph! Maybe 136mph.

I used that chart, but the rest I put together myself. I will attribute the chart to your post. Thanks! :cheers
