I liked +2 on the rear. Can do that on the standard length chain. When it was chain replacement time I went +4 (TLS 17/42)

Add your bike to your profile, makes it easier. TLS or TLR? they run different ratios as standard.

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 :)

go -1 on the front will reduce the life on the swingarm rubber buffer. I went to 16 on mine and the buffer died in just 2000 km
