SP2 sprocket recommendations.

I'm new to the Rc51forum.com forums so their may already be a thread on this topic, but I'm looking for people personal experiences with different final drive ratios on sprockets. Was thinking of a -1/+1 but looking for people opinion or a link to an existing thread.Click image for larger version

Got my bike with the OEM 16 front/40 rear gearing = way too tall. Hard to find the "right gear" at certain speeds, and requires lots of clutch slipping on take-off.

Changed to 15 front / 41 rear = all is good. Rides like a normal street sport bike now. Enough gear selection, but still hauls ass and should have a good top speed, not that I intend to find out

15 front / 41 rear seems to be most common, but some guys do 15 front / 42 rear, and I don't remember reading any complaints about that.

I've seen this reply before.... and yet it never get's old for these posts.

I plan on using this reply much more often here...because sadly enough it seems to often need it.

Aw, to be fair - it's only new owners that ask these questions and if we want to be helpful we should just answer with the info, or give the OP a link.
If we told all newcomers who ask the same question to go do a search - it would feel like a much less welcoming place...

Like if you went to a bike club and asked someone what the best settings were for your new bike and someone looked up & replied, go look it up!

....Just sayin'

I'd say 15/42. More likelyhood of the front pawing the air on aggresive corner exits at times that way.

Agreed ... and heck if I don't feel like answering, I don't have to.

I couldn't find the search button on my app, and your correct makes much more sense to answer people's questions on a public forum rather than being a nitwit and posting "LOOK IT UP" because if everyone "looked it up" then there would be no content to search through now would their. But to those more sensible folks who replied with a true answer to my questions thank you! To the assholes...well enough said...consensus seems to be -1/+1.
