Gearing change and speedo healer

Howdy folks,. I'm looking at changing the gearing from standard to 15/41-42. The reason I'm thinking 42 on the rear is it will almost leave the rear wheel where it is with a 15 front sprocket. Does that sound about right?
I know generally its best to replace chain and sprockets together but the chain and sprockets are fairly new.
If there's a speedo healer already installed somewhere, is it usually installed somewhere it would be easy to see/ find? There isn't one in the tail section or up front anywhere visible. I just don't want to buy one and find one already installed in some obscure location.
Thanks, Jamie.

check to see if anything is plugged into the speed sensor. the connector for it is under the tail cowl just below the right side of the riders seat on the outside of the subframe.

If you're running a 190/55 or larger, you may need that extra link. I did with 15/42. If you are running the OEM 50 series, you may very well get away with standard length chain.

I'm 15/43, with a 50 tire, and I use the OEM number of links, FYI.
