go down in the front and put it up the rear.

See he sticky in the how to QA section.

Most ppl that get into sportbikes for handling and not top speed records consider gearing down, A larger rear sprocket and or smaller front sprocket.

If this is your direction and you have read the sticky.
and if like most of us you will use the bike on the street too you will need some comfort at sustained highway speeds.

If you have to rev 10K to go 80mph you might not like it.

Do some highway riding one gear down from top (ie 5th on a 6 speed)
If this is too low of gearing then don't pick a ratio that will make your new 6th as low as your current 5th.

Good Luck

If you are just curious about what we are running then:
+0 front / -6 rear on a shadow 750 spirit. Allows really low RPM at 70mph so a lot less buzzing. Since I commute I use this and just down shift if I need to pass someone. Plus it bumps up my mpg by about 4 to 5 percent. Not a set up that would be liked by most though so I would also recommend the linked tutorial.
Peace.

if you went up that many in your speedo is WAY off. with just -1/+2 it made a 10/15 mph difference on my bike.

is ur bike a 600 or 1000??? you mean to tell me you are looking at the speedos on other bikes next to you at 145mph?????

if your bike is a 600 and you are -1 +5 I HIGHLY doubt you are doing a true 145.
