thinking of changing the sprocket on my 1198, any sugestions. On my 08 R1 I did 1 down on front and 2 up rear.

I am so use to the taller gearing of my 999 that my 1198 already feels like a major gearing change. Not that, that helps.

I am just about to go up 2 teeth on the rear.. don't like the 14 tooth front option...
14 tooth front sprocket is pushing it as far as chain bind. I wouldn't do that either.


As well, I wouldn't gear it as well. The 1198S is the first bike I've ridden that, to me, definately does not need to be regeared. Especially if you have the Termignoni slip-ons/ecu/filters.
