Sprocket change questions?
Here's the story: i've owned my 2004 RC51 for about a year now, and I'm interested in changing the sprockets. I want to get into the power range a little sooner, have more grunt at lower speeds. i don't really care about top end speed-my Hayabusa can satisfy that need for me. I'm thinking about going to 15t front and 41t rear. So here's my questions:
1. Any tricks to getting to the front and taking it off? I can't seem to find any info on that.
2. Will the original chain still fit with this combo? The bike only has about 12,000 miles on it and the chain looks good--lots of life left in it.
3. Anything else I should know before taking on this project? i've changed chains and sprockets before so not a total newbie on this.
Thanks in advance to your help and advice!
