My next project is to change the front sproket to 14T on my GT1000. Any suggestion for brand and type?
Install the Fat Duc O2 manipulator before you do anything else. It is THE cure for the problem. Set it at about mid range, and forget it.For the lean running lugging issue i heard the Fat Duc is the key. Do you feel the same way?
The Fat Duc was not enough of a cure to the low RPM/Speed/Lugging issue or are you looking for more pull from the bottom?
The reason I ask, is because I put a 14T sprocket after my first service to help the lugging issue, but I did not do anything for me. I did notice a bit more pull from take off, but nothing significant.

Noted with thanks. I already have the FatDuc (1/5 turn from maximum richness - the silver dot). I don't have much lugging problem however was contemplating the 14T as many people in the forum recommend it. I ride mainly in the city and thought it may be a good idea to have even more low end acceleration.Install the Fat Duc O2 manipulator before you do anything else. It is THE cure for the problem.

It installs in 10 minutes with NO other modifications, costs only about
$80, and will lower you gas milage only slightly.
Sixth gear is an overdrive on these bikes. I use it only rarely, for high speed touring. Then, I'm glad I have it. A 14t front sprocket would greatly increase engine RPMs at high speed, so I have not installed one.
