What is your impression using a 46-tooth rear sprocket (STD front)? Is there a noticeable change in?

- Handling due to shorter wheel base
- Acceleration on higher gears
- Wheelie willingness on 2nd and 3rd gear

Noticeable change in handling...no
Acceleration on higher gears...YES in ALL gears
Wheelie willingness on 2nd and 3rd gear...I don't do wheelies, but they will be much easier with this set up

Must be getting to old and feable to shift, eh? :rofl:

Does a 47T require adding a link or two to the chain?

I had it on the '08 for Mark's ride last year :poke:

Stock is 114...I also went with a 190/55...had to go to 116 to make it work :thumbsup:

Well that's cool! I wondered why you were so stinkin slow? I was blaming it on your old age and senility :poke:

Ba Busa how do you like the 190/55r17 for handling?

They cost more than the 190/50's...but I like them better...faster turn in and when leaned over a larger contact patch :beerchug:

I've been using them for about six years, started at the track with Pirelli SuperCorsas, Metzler Racetec (used to be Rennsport)...for the street I recommend the BT-016 190/55-17 rear, 120/70-17 front :thumbsup:
