front or rear sprocket change..R...

I have changed the front sprocket to a RENTHAL 14T one with the aim of bit more get up and go and tbh Im more than a little disappointed..

So would a change to a 48 t rear sprocket make any noticable difference?

AND would the original chain then be long enough?..

It doesnt really matter where you change the ratio but it makes a bigger difference with the front sprocket.

I changed the front sprocket from 15 to 13 on mine and got around 15% more torque wich put me spot on my goal to rise the front wheel with ease on third gear.

To aquire the same result with the back sprocket i'd have to go from 45 to 53.

with a 13t front sprocket, you might want to check if the chain isn't eating your swingarm...

check this out to get an idea of shifts in torque etc.

remember...going up more than a couple of teeth on the rear will likely need a longer driver chain. Also your speedo goes woefully out the more you move away from the standard ratio.

I'm running a 15/46 and that works great for me but the speedo shows 100 Kph and the sat nav states I'm doing 90. At 50 kph I'm doing 43.

I have been running with 13t quite some time now, there is a higher wear on the rubber protection but the chain hasn't touched the swingarm yet.

What is standard front and rear?

Seems x-ring the better chain option

you could buy each part separately on ebay to try and save a bit or go to https://www.wemoto.com/

Hi, wemoto do DID, have seen talk here of the Renthal kits being good. 6 of one , half dozen of the other? or is there mileage in buying a Renthal kit over DID?
Also what tool do I need for the chain, is it what is known as a breaker?

Appreciate your opinion
