Can't find a -1 front sprocket... +4 or 5 on rear?

I bought a -1 +2 setup online but today the guy called me and said Vortex doesn't make one for my bike. Can I do +4 or 5 on the rear?

So it would be much more substantial than just a -1 +2 setup? From my understanding -1 in the front equates to about +3 in the rear. The bike barely pushes 100 hp stock, with the 30k miles plus a jet kit I have no idea how much it makes now. That's why I was thinking keeping the stock 14 tooth front size and only going up 4 or 5 in the rear.

I ended up paying $200 for both sprockets, a chain and a clip type and rivet type link.

Yeah it will be similar to the -1 +2, when you change your front sprocket size it makes alot bigger difference then rear, when you think about the tooth count that makes sense. If you go up 4 or 5 in the rear you will see a substantial difference in the low end pull of 1-3 gears.

Well I have a cable type speedo gear on the front wheel so I shouldn't have to worry about that.
