Gearing changes

I am about to buy new chain and sprockets for ye ole 954.

I was curious to see exactly what effect a gearing change would have on my bike. I did a little googling (I know, I will go blind), and found this site.

It may be a repost, but I found it very helpful.

Your bike will accelerate harder, but your speedometer will be less accurate. You can get a Speedohealer to fix that though.

I use that, and it's very helpful. I put a new chain and sprocket set on my 954 16-47 for MSRH. And it worked pretty much like that gear computer said it would work per RPM's.

I was thinking of dropping 1 on the countershaft. I love this bike, but it is down on power compared to my ZX10. I would like to wake it up a little on acceleration. It says the bike would theoretically hit 161@12k in 6th gear with the gear drop. I dont think I need more than 157 or so on the street.

So I was wanting to go down a tooth in the front. Should I just wait until my next chain/sprocket change? My current chain sprockets are in great shape

Why wait 10k miles or more? Do it now. The upgrade was a nice little improvement on my old bike.
They're related, but not necessarily dependent on changing one with/without the other.
