-1 will make more of a difference than +1 in the back.

-1 cost about 30.00

+1 cost 50.00 for 1/3 of the difference that the -1 will make.


if your gonna do the rear atleast make a 2-3 tooth change to get your money worth

ok, how many miles on the bike?

if its worn and you replace only sprockets, it will wear the chain and sprockets down quicker. then you'll be replacing all of them again in a shirt time.

I can't speak for the Kawi, but I went -1 on the front sprocket, stock rear and chain. It worked just fine on my 03 600RR.

i started with -1 in the front....it's enough to notice the difference. if you need more, buy the rear sprocket afterwards

wife sounds like a smart woman. she probably knows the bikes is fast enough as it is. so why want even more acceleration that you cannot use street riding. If money is tight then why blow it on something you don't REALLY NEED.

-1 on the front sprocket is a very common mod. Low cost, you can reuse the chain, and it improves the bikes acceleration. Try that first before you buy a larger rear sprocket. Your speedometer and odometer will now be more inaccurate though. You may want to invest in a Speedohealer to correct them.
