Recommended sizes of sprocket

hi guys, i just collected my 1078RR today.. the torque is mental.. lifted the front slightly blasting off from traffic lights.. and i kept looking for the 7th gear.. looked down at the tach and its only 4000 rpm.. lol

wondering if many here reduce the rear teeth, and by how many? or maybe even the front sprocket?

Go up one on the front...bear in mind your speedometer will be inaccurate. Easily corrected with a "YellowBox", "SpeedoHealer" or similar calibrator.

Larger front is kinder to your chain and less expensive. Up 1 tooth front is same as down 3~4 rear..

Do as "esq'z me" recommended.

Comparison only: With the standard settings (15-41) and the rear tire 190/55 in the 6th gear at 5,000 rpm you have a speed of 115.5 Km/h.
If you raise the front sprocket to 16 you will have 123.2 Km/h and if you don't change the front, the rear should be reduced to 38 teeth to get approximately the same result (124.6 Km/h).
If this increase in the front sprocket isn't enough, I recommend that you replace the rear tire with the 200/55. That combination gives a total speed of 125.3 Km/h and this is a change you will feel in everyday use.
Another detail - increasing the speed increases the error (it's calculated in percentage).

That puts your bike in its least efficient rpm range. That is a known tuning troublespot for MV.
