GEARING

Is there any advantage - disadvantage , better wear , less power -more power when changing the front sprocket or rear spocket ?
I have -1 front and +1 rear that are new along with the chain.

I cant decide to do the rear or the front, I had them both on and the rpms were a little high for me so now I'm back to stock. but Im putting 1 back on just curios which one would make a better choice?

If you can adjust the chain out enough, its up to you.

Changing the rear plus 1 will do less then going -1 in the front.

So if you want a little more acceleration go +1 in the rear.

If you want more, go -1 front.



Top end, I've heard -1 shaves off 10mph at highspeed/topping out. Ur speedometer will be off a little, but more importantly, your shift times will be off from what you are use to...

Maybe do the rear for the forest ride, that way the rpms are a little lower, better gas mileage, and you can see how it feels.

Remember break in is 200mls for a chain; Gonna do some riding before the forest? or take it easy? The chain could loosen after wear in.

Good answer Cali, that makes sense, theres way more area in the rear verses the front.

I ride street mostly

just want the power without the rpm's

Its easier to change the rear ( on my bike )

but I wanted to check the front sprocket becuse I ran out of lock tight when I put it on the first time, so I changed the front sprocket ( with locktight ) if its to much I'll put it back and change the rear.
