    Gearing -1 tooth on front sprocket +1 tooth on rear sprocket - anyone tried this ?

    Just about to replace chain plus front & rear sprocket. I noticed there are quite a few kits for sale with -1 tooth and the front sprocket and +1 tooth on the rear. Just wondered if anyones tried this and what the results were. Was it worth it etc ?

    cheers.

    That would probably make 2nd gear like 1st gear, useless for anything but wheelies and power slides. Wait a minute...that's fun, not useless!

    I wouldn't do it unless you don't ever ride on the highway. It would definitely accentuate the CB's hooligan side. BRAAAAAPP!

    I've got a 17 tooth sprocket on order, I will fit it and let you know as soon as it's done.

    Already done the 17 tooth on the front It rides & runs great! No more of that fast shifting! 6th gear is a overdrive. 1st gear pulls great. Suzukijo did his before I did mine! Makes a great bike even better

    Have now fitted the 17t front sprocket and the difference for me anyway is amazing. Being a more mature rider (cough)! the bike still pulls like a train but I don't have to change gear like a junkie with Tourettes desperate for a fix! The bike still pulls great in any gear and it's still a hooligan when you give it a big handfull (so I'm told) at 70 it is now 500rpm down and until I get it on my private airport runway I can only guess that the top speed will be a wee bit more than it was. I agree with Ridem32, fitting a 17t has made a great bike even better.

    Theoretically a 17t sprocket gives you 160mph @10,000 so far more suited to a naked, whereas a 16t ONLY gives you 150 so not worth having!

    +1. It may not be for everyone, it was an improvement to how I ride.
