1 down in the front 2 up in the back. Stay away from the 520 conversions for street riding though.

Not hard to change out your own sprockets provided you have the right tools. Run a few searches on some of the honda forums, I'm sure someone has done a writeup on this before.

Yep, you gotta learn somewhere if you wanna do your own basic maintenance. Sprockets are basic as it gets. You may also want to find a copy of the service manual, you can usually find them floating around on the other forums. After that it's just get the tools and read the suggestions.

If you do it yourself don't forget to align the rear wheel. It can affect handling.
It's no big deal just need to be aware of it.

600RR definetly needs it but, that bike has a weird balance point. Not exactly my idea of a fun wheelie machine but amazing track bikes.

I never liked wheeling my 600RR's. The way there are setup makes you feel like you are falling off the bike or something. My R6's is a different story. :laughing6

if you want clean freeway wheelies keep it stock.. if you want to slow it down in the lot then go up down 1 and up 7 or 10.... if you cant get it up in 3rd on the freeway then keep practicing.
