Is +1/+0 the same as +0/+1? Instead of changing the front sprocket, if i changed the rear with +1 with that lower the RPMs at cruising speed? The only reason i am asking is because if i am on the highway or something, i hate reving the hell out of my bike. and the rear seems like it would be easier to change than the front (dont have any experience, just a guess).
Ok, so i went to check some sprokets on e-bay and this is the information i got from their website:
For QUICK Acceleration 16/47t gear ratio (Quick off the line, snappy roll on's, easier wheelies), The +1t rear sprocket change is very mild change, in the direction of quickness, with no noticeable side effects other than very slightly higher freeway cruising rpm's.
For FREEWAY RATIO 16/43t FASTER TOP SPEED, and LOWER HIGHWAY CRUISING RPM's - The -1t rear sprocket is a mild change, the -3t will be very noticeable in lower top gear cruising rpm's and higher top speed, but slower off the line..
Original Factory Supplied OEM 16/46t size sprockets are the calculated "Happy Medium" of off the line acceleration, roll on's, and reasonable high speed engine rpm's with the least amount of compromise on either top end or low end acceleration
Teeth and Sizes Explained...
** A -1t front sprocket change is EXACTLY the same ratio change as +3t rear sprocket change.
** A -2t front sprocket change is EXACTLY the same ratio change as +6t rear sprocket change (Very Extreme change)
** A -1t front and +2t rear combination is EXACTLY the same as a +5t rear only change with stock front sprocket.
** A larger rear sprocket number of teeth size requires a longer chain, however +1 or -1 tooth on the front sprocket only requires NO chain length change.
