+2 rear sprocket

I'm going to go +2 on the rear sprocket. I'm not going down one in front yet. Anyone else do this also?

did it before
better to go down one off the front
you can get a steel sprocket for the front which is cheaper

So it made no difference to just go +2 on the back?

So far I've had good success with the Vortex F5 rear sprockets.
Many folks don't care for them, but that may be their standard sprockets.
I have to run non-OEM sprockets due to my Marchesini wheels, so I'm limited in the choice of sprocket sources.
The F5 is a hard anodized sprocket with teflon coating.
I installed it last May, and have put over 16K miles on it so far with hardly any noticeable wear.
Of course this was in conjunction with a new Renthal front sprocket and RK XSO chain.
So I'm a happy camper.

Yeah I heard the Vortex T5 or Renthal sprockets are good. I went with a Renthal. When I do the 520 conversion on my CBR I'll go with Driven sprockets.

16K miles in a year and 4 months??? You trying to have the rc with the most miles on it?

Stealth sprockets are the only way to go.
