I was actually having a very hard time bringing up the nose with stock gearing... now with 17/43 the sucker will come up easy! Too easy! I yanked it a little harder in 1st and it flew up (scared the sh@# out of me) to about a 45 degree angle and I hit my helmet on the windscreen when it came down!! haha! I wasn't expecting it to shoot up like that... but it's all cool. I hope I don't get addicted to bringing it up every ride....

Thanks brendanp... 43 is evil!

To much throttle on lift off dude :-) Your 43T sprocket does make considerable difference in performance. Chopping the throttle is what gives you a black eye from the wind screen.

Just be easy to begin with and try only bringing it up a few inches and hold a bit of throttle on until she sets back down.

Wheelies are a gas but don't try doing a twelve oclock the first week :-)

Brendan has a dvd by Kyle Wood called "Wheelies by Dummies" I'd suggest you get your own copy and watch it a few dozen times!

the 16 tooth would equal two in the back, then if you add the 42 plus 2 it would be the same as 44 in the rear. it would pull a wheelie with a less throttle than the 17/43.

16 front is more like going up to a 42.5 in the back with a 17 front.

If you were to have a 15 front and a 45 rear...1 front + or -  equals 3 in the rear

Be careful dont flip it over on ya. That is why it is geared the way it is from the factory and mapped soft.
