HELP!!!! How do i change my front sprocket?

I'm going 1- in the front....

Will I need to shorten my chain when i do this, or better yet, do i have to get a whole brand new one?

And other than the l/s fairing and rear tire removal, once i get in there is there anything else i'm required to remove or look for or adjust 2 do this change?

its pretty strait forward, you will prolly have acotter key and a nut to take off, then remove it and put new one back on in reverse you took it off.

my bike and new chain is already extended 6" over, so i'm thinking i will have to buy a new chain or take a link out.

Is there any way to take the link out without that little do hicky tool? :/:

it's pretty easy and straight forward. take the sprocket cover off, and you'll see!

and no, doing -1 in the front, you will not need to cut your chain.....just adjust as necessary.

This is only for drag racing and that was gonna be my next question.

When I was looking for a sprocket someone mentioned don't get "the bullshit" so is there a particular brand i need to buy?

Candy, if you need any help I have all the tools. You usually don't have to shorten the chain for one tooth down on the front.
Go steel, not aluminum.
Most shops should have the standard size sprockets in stock, especially for a GSXR.
