I assume you're talking about front/rear sizes? It really all just depends on what you want out of it.

i have a 16 on the front and a 43 on the back, took a little bit off the top end but it accelerates like crazy, cant keep the front wheel on the ground in 1st and second.

+2 in back. No change in front.
Gives you a little more punch but isn't bad when cruising freeways. Top speed only drops by around 6 mph. Use the rifleman's throttle mod if you must.

Don't forget to buy and calibrate the speedohealer.

I ended up doing just a -1 in the front for 20 bucks and 20 mins; I couldn't be happier. 1st gear is so much more enjoyable in town.

Supersprox. The best of both worlds.

Fronts are always steel.

I used Sprocketcenter.com as recommended by Clarkmanning. We just talked about what I wanted for gearing and they picked out the manufacturer. I only had about 750 miles on the bike so I got the green light from them to just do a sprocket rather than both sprockets and a chain. If you have @2k miles or more, they are going to tell you to do all three.
