How many miles do you have on your stock?
Did you check your tension through out the chain to make sure there's no stretched part?
How did you take care of?

I would suggest to go +1 on rear and -1 on front.
What I really would suggest is just go -1 on front and go from there to see how your bike and you feel about it.

Probably going to need a longer chain... and also check the front sprocket for wear. The smaller sprocket wears faster than the larger rear one...

btw: +3 rear is the same as a -1 front, just the rear sprocket costs more.

Don't be cheap over chain and sprockets.
When they break on you while you are going +60mph, than you'll be real sorry (one of my friend's cheapo chain's master link actually popped out while we were going around that speed).
I stick with DID.
