Gear or not to gear?

Have been thinking of gearing my bike now. I already did full exhaust (cannon), Bazzaz Fi unit and Pippercross race filter. My bike runs great and has tons of power. When I do roll ons with some of my buddies 1000's they sometimes get the jump on me and I have to catch them (depends on what speed we start at). Most of them are -1 tooth down in front. From a dig (dead stop) my bike will take them pretty easy (depending on rider). I was thinking of trying the -1 (front) or +3 (rear) but already have a hard time with wheelies.

Well I ordered the 17 tooth front from tobefast. Figure it's cheap and if I don't like it I will change it back to stock. Thanks... :thumbsup:

I went -1 and + 2 in rear. It was great around town but out on longer highway rides the higher revs got a little annoying. My gas mileage went fom around low to mid 40's stock to around 30-31 fully geared. I put the stock rear sprocket back on and it made the highway rides better with mileage at around 36-37 mpg. I have ran it with all the combinations and can't really tell a seat of the pants difference between the -1 with stock rear or with the +2 and stock front but would definatly change one or the other for that low end punch.

I went from 17/40 stock to 16/42....it made my busa feel like a whole new bike, and raised the fun factor through the roof :cheerleader: :cheerleader: :cheerleader: :laugh: I will NEVER ride with stock gearing again.........
