another chain sprocket question

ok well im looking into getting some gearing for my ktm here is where i stand

stock gearing:
14/45

stock gearing:
Can run gss and barely touch 6th on the main straight

msr-h:
was told i need to goto down to 40t in the rear to run gss

Options:
1.
keep 40t and try to cut chain to fit 40t and 45t (adjust with tensioners) : $70 (already spent)

2.
Keep 40t rear, get 13t front : gss setup 13/40 ($25)
keep 40t rear, get 15t front : msrh/cresson 15/40 ($25)

3.
buy new chain for 40t and just swap chains and sprockets ($85)

just looking for best and easiest way ... squanto suggested #2 saying the front sprocket is easier to swap out that the rear plus this would get me 3+ sprocket setups

thx

Brandon ran MSRH on my SV650 with 14/46 gearing just fine. I would think a 45...maybe a 44 rear would do you fine.

Man, I'm running 15/43 on my 450X and I thought it would be to tall for GSS.
Good to hear it'll be close at least. I know mine aint pullin no 3rd gear power wheelies though without some persuasion.
