Question Performance Chain and Sprockets???

Hello to all! I am finally ready to put some performance upgrades on my bike. I am currently looking to change out the chain and sprockets.. I would like to increase acceleration as well as top speed. What brand would yall recommend? I have a 2007 gsxR 750 completely stock. Thanks for your help in advance!

Just go -1 on the front and have fun.


-1 on the front = + 3 or there about on the rear, your choice.


Also get a rivet style master link.

I'd go down one in the front for better acceleration, you'l lose maybe 2-3 mph.
We've got some killer deals on chain and sprockets right now, give me a call at the shop.

I like the driven sprockets and ZZZ chain. -1+2 will do the trick. You cant have both though.

He said Acceleration???

But yes I see what you mean Cali. He will enjoy his bike better if he improves his skill set.

No one rides there bike to the limit and the best way to improve your bikes "time" acceleration etc. is by you getting the bike down by doing trackdays, 1/4 miles whatever your thing is but practice will improve your times more then any mod. The bikes do not hold anyone back its all you.

Just went down -1 in the front with a stock steel sprocket from an 07 R6. Best bang for the buck upgrade if you ask me. I don't have to wring the bike out so hard to get it to accelerate now. $30 for the sprocket and $110 for the Speedohealer. Had to do the job right.
