Roadrash is correct in his thinking here. I have a 40T 520 setup. After all, how many times are you hitting 150, unless you are a consistent track rider, with plenty of straight or huge sweepers.roadrash194 said:I have heard alot of people talk about 1 down in the front,but I would think that with the chain making a tightier bend it would wear faster. I want to go to a 520 setup so I figured that it would be better to go up in the rear instead. I thank everyone for the info and I think I will go with the 38 as it is a good all around choice.
The real trick setup is to take a 748 close ratio gearset and drop it into the 996. It cures all the problems of the spread between 5th & 6th gears, and breaths new life into the fun factor of the bike.
