17T front sprocket option

I thought I would share my experience about my change to 17t front sprocket.

My favorite riding areas are about 1.5 hours away and there is a significant amount of that on highway droning along. With my after market exhaust the bike was buzzy for me on highway. At about 80 mph that tach was at 7k and that was tiring for me. Even with ear plugs. I wanted to bring down RPM to to something less buzzy. I talk to dealer and he informed me there was option for 17t front sprocket and was just swap and would not cause any chain issues. I found a gearing tool online and used it to calculate RPM at 80 and it would be about 6100. That was perfect for me. It was much quieter at that RPM. I had dealer ( Ducshop) swap it out. I am happy with results. No real noticeable downsides for performance. The dragster is still snappy. 1st gear is a little taller so I have to be aware when I start to keep from stalling. Also not that this is important but is raises possible top speed to 160ish .

I have been very happy with change.

How is the speedometer accuracy??? I think your bike uses wheel speed and not transmission shaft speed for the signal, so maybe no change??

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

I have not noticed any difference. Good point .I have ridden about 400 miles with new sprocket. Iíll hookup a gps next time I ride and compare.
