DID/ Superlite -1/+2

I can't comment on performance or pros/cons at this point as I installed them just before putting the bike away.

-1/+2 Vortex steel countershaft and aluminum rear.

Pros. Quicker acceleration, very responsive, a little better flickability transitioning from turn to turn due to less spinning mass

Cons. Throttle is a bit choppier but not bad. And top speed is lower. Exactly 150mph at the rev limiter. But I'm at the track going fast usually and never have seen more than about 135 in the long straights before its on the brakes time. Freeway riding is a little crappy just because it's about 8k at 75mph. So a little buzzy and less fuel mileage.

Newb question. What is the difference inbetween the two sprockets.

I mean obviously there is a front and a rear sprocket. But what will increasing/decreasing each do. I'm assuming + in the rear would equate to quicker acceleration.

I believe that - up front and + in back both equate to quicker acceleration. I think -1 up front equals about +3 on rear.

-1,+6... but this is on a race bike and our track is quite tight/technical.

My suggestion would be to figure out what kinda top speed you're looking for at the end of the day and then go with a sprocket combination that gets you there. You can play around w/all that w/the following link --> Gearing Commander: Motorcycle Speed, RPM, Chain & Sprockets Calculator Most folks believe they want all the top speed they can get, but the reality is most never use the very top (most not all). So think back to your last 10 rides and what top speed would you overall be happy with. If you're looking for all the top speed you can get, well you got the wrong bike to begin with... so be honest w/yourself.

If you want to play around with with a minimal "buy-in", just get you a -1 front and throw it on. It's equivalent to adding about 2.6-ish teeth to the rear. You won't have to change the length of your chain and you're only gonna be out about $25-$30.

-1/stock. Lots of people like the -1/+2 not me. It was TOO much. Wasn't smooth enough for me. -1 gives me a lil more torque without it being a track/wheelie type bike.

So you're probably only topping out at about 159 due to the speedo error.

Going -1/+2 will allow you to use the same chain if you revert back to stock as it's about the same length. Food for thought.
