I was running +2 on the rear on my R. I was going to go -1/+2 or -1/+3 on my next chain, but didn't end up doing that. I tried -2/+2 and damn it felt good but wore on the chain guide too much and revved out a tad quickly, so I felt that the above would be ideal.
17/41 - +2 on the rear here ... man, it feels good. Everything just works better, from the engine all through the rev range to suspension & cornering. Obviously Suzuki put those longs legs on to get the big top end numbers to impress all the anaroks who buy bikes cos of the numbers on the paper :rolleyes
Corners that were too fast for 1st but not puncy enough for second are just perfect in second now
I'm currently running 16/42, Speedo's way off and top speed was lost but I don't go through front tire very fast seeing as how it hardly touches the ground now. WHEELIE MACHINE!:devious :devious :devious :devious
