Question what teeth count are you running, both front and rear?

I currently have stock Front 16T, rear -2 (41T). I noticed the bike runs smoother, but lost the acceleration, so was thinking to either add more on front or go back to stock completely?

But still want to see what everyone else is running.

Thanks

a good start is -1 on the front and 2 up in the rear. I run -1 + 5

I'll probably invest in that when I change out my tires, since I just got the sprocket installed today, but lost a lot of acceleration.

i had -1 + 2 on my 07 600 but took off the +2 because of the highway, it sits at too high of rpms for me.

the -1 is perfect though, to me

you could get a -1 for the front and not have to change your chain for pretty cheap. you want more gear on a 600 not less, unless your spraying nos, sixth gear for top speed runs. -1 on the front is equal to 2.7 just say 3 teeth up on the rear

don't go more than -1 on the front too. thats a tight circle for the chain to go around and it will wear it out faster plus put more stress on your transmission.

Interesting... what about leaving the front stock and going +3 in the back instead? Would that alleviate the strain on the transmission/chain?

I know you are referring to -1 but my question stands. I have heard on countless times that the reason why folks go down -1 instead of up is that it's cheaper to get a front sprocket because they won't have to get a longer chain.

If it was me the first thing i'd do is go -1 on the front. then if you want more gear start adding teeth in the rear. -1 on the front is equal to 3 up on the rear so with that said- you get less rotating mass of the chain and sprocket going -1 compared to going up 3 on the rear

yes going -1 is the cheap route to more gear becuase you don't HAVE TOO buy a chain

-1 on the front won't hurt anything chain or stress wise

hmm, that probably would have been more cost effective. i have another sprocket that a friend bought me which is quite massive, i think its for stunting, i didn't use that of course. but he didn't know the difference in sprocket teeth

fyi. a -1 up front is = to +3 in back. if you went -2 in back then you made launches slower, increased your top end. if you want better off the line acceleration, you need to add teeth in the rear and take away teeth up front.
