What difference will I feel going from 41T to 40T on the rear sprocket?

Just as the title says. Wondering what affect/feel/difference will I notice going down 1 tooth on the rear from stock on a Brutale 1078. Still pull power wheelies or will it keep the front end down more? when I exit out of turns at full gas, will she still pull as hard? Thanks.

One tooth on the rear won't make a lot of difference...a bit more top speed, a bit less pull from the basement.

I have an excel spreadsheet I can email you where you can plug in all the variables and see where road speed and engine speed will be for any given change in gearing or tire size.

Let me know if you want it.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

On it's way....the link is a fancy version, mine's just a simple Excel file.

According to the math, I'll have a new top speed of 172 up from 165 done on the dyno.

So real world results to come, just ordered the AEM Magnesium rear carrier and sprocket from Gutsy Performance. 40T, will weigh it against stock to see how much lighter it is.

Don't forget your speedo will go out of calibration, you will be travelling faster than indicated

Eh, don't look at it much and if I ever do get nicked, likely be jail time anyway. The world is my track.

Speedo Healer or Yellow Box will allow you to recalibrate the reading easily....about $100 I think. Google is your friend here.
