Maverick,

Thanks for your posts on this issue!

I was thinking of going -1 on my R3 front sprocket but I can't find anyone who has other than you.

Did you get the power you were looking for, like a real noticeable difference?

What happened to your top end? Like, can you still cruise at 75mph on the highway without really high RPM? What about at least 65?

Thanks for your help!

Mike

Well it didnt increase power but yes 1st through 3rd are noticeably more torquey. Not blow your pants off difference, but noticeable.

Cruising RPMs @ 60->70mph increased about 400-500RPM, if Im not mistaken cruising RPM @ 60 on stock is around 6800. Mine is about 7200-7300... still well within the 'happy' range of this motor. Its been about 4 months since I was last able to ride though.... My memory isnt the greatest. Maybe Ill write up a -1 front sprocket review in the spring.... if winter ever ends.

I have -1 front in mine, I'm happy with it, I might even add +2 in the rear when its time to change the chain

Out of interest, has it made much of a difference to your tank range?
