Thanks for the handy reference Wink.
Ahhhh so having an inventory of sprockets front and rear allows you to tune.
No problem Greg. Actually, I give credit to Garth as he explained sprocket ratios to me at the first NESBA event this year, Grattan.
I created this chart just to help clarify the ratios for ya. As SuperSpud kinda mentioned above, no need for all the gears that I have shown, unless you wanna be a stunna.
For example, for the front, I have 16 and 17. For the rear on my thousand, I have 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45. Needless to say, that is a wide range. Probably too wide.
I use a 41 or 42 at Road America on the rear. I use a 45 at all the short tracks. The 45 is TOO strong, so I will be moving to a 44 in the future.
Again, this is on my 05 GSXR. The best way to figure out what works for you is to get a few sprockets and try them out. An extra cush drive is ideal so that you can have two sprockets mounted before you get to the track.
As far as swing arm angle, Heath is very good at that.
