my goal here is much more torque down low, with easier wheelies. My friend said just go -2, but i've heard just go -1. I don't have many twisties around here, actually none. When I ride I like to cruise around town, pop up a couple on the backroads, high speed freeway runs, etc. i don't like to take it up past 120, so as long as I hit that im good.

it'll be with a 520 conversion. recommend one for meh!

i have 520 conversion with 1 down in the front and +2 rear... first gear the front comes up easy...i went with this to give me more power in the canyons


1 down in the front equals +3 rear

but you gotta do it evenly...

Don't bother switching out unless you are going to be stunting most of the time or have a better reason for it than wheeling. Wheeling is easy on almost any style of bike and stupid easy on a sport bike.

-1 +3 is a bit extreme. i have -1 and stock rear, but R1's are notoriously geared too high from the factory, and most people drop a tooth on the front sprocket.

well this is a 600. r1s can pop power wheelies easy. my 600 can barely do em in first, i have to roll off then roll on. clutching up in second is impossible, and first is the only gear that'll do em nicely with clutching up, and even then its hard. I wanna be able to ride around in second gear and then clutch em up high, i don't wanna have to slow to 10mph to pull one.

Its just badass to see my friends on liters rip em up and hold em easy
