Sprocket choice for 910 s

Hi my fellow mv dudes

Im sure this has been in a tread before, but i cant seem to find it, is there a perfect sprocket choice when it comes to the brutale. I dont need the top speed to be 265 km , i need the power more down range. Has anyone tried different ?

you might not care about top speed, but do you care if the engine is winding at 8k RPM in order to go 100 km/h on the highway? if that doesn't bother you, then drop a tooth in the front and add a couple in the rear.

Dont drop one in the front, just add 3 in the rear, its more than enough to give you the extra power down low.

If you drop one in the front, isent that the same as 3 in the rear`? and you dont need to change the chain

Don't forget....your speedometer will no longer be accurate (or as accurate as it was) when you change gearing ratio.

No its not the same thing. When you drop one in the front, you increase chain weare because you make your chain spin faster than before, which spins the rear wheel faster.

When you add teeth to the rear, your chain is still spinning at the same rate as before, only the rear wheel spins faster due to the added teeth.

And adding 3 teeth to the rear will not require a new chain, I have done it to my F4, its only a minor change to the diameter of the sprocket.
