+1, yep.. mine's the same setup... i have -1 Front and +2 rear.. do u think i can wheelie thru gears with this setup?? i mean how easy wud it be?:headscratchYou don't have to change them togther. However keep this in mind it is sometimes cheaper to do a front sprocket then getting a custom rear sprocket done. Use this for a guide when you change the rear going up three teeth is like dropping one tooth in the front. A good setup for street/stunt riding is F down 1 R up 2
Front sprockets tend to be cheaper then rear sprockets but you are limited on how many teeth you can drop.
wow! cant wait to fit em..the damn mechanic is way too busy..:bangheadYeah that was the setup on my old ZX6 and that thing would lift without even thinking about it. And that bike was carburated imagine those results on a fuel injected bike. Sprockets will only bring you so far alot of distance wheelie riding is all about throttle control and rider skill.
+1YOSHED636- dont go with that setup by going with that setup you are going to have to change the chain to a longer one. Also the cost of a larger rear sprocket. You will get the same results by dropping the front sprocket down 2 without breaking the bank. A front sprocket range in price from $14-$29 while a rear sprocket range in price from $32-$78 plus the cost of a new chain
You will need a new washer when you change out the front sprocket.
It's doesn't cost that much, but it's a special part tha's designed to be bent over the sprocket nut after you've tightened it up. This stops the nut shaking loose. There's loads of vibration at that point on the bike and the nut will come loose easlily if you don't fit the washer.
Also note. My sprocket nut was on so tight it must have been close to threading. You will need an impact wrench (rent this) and a hex (not bi-hex) impact socket set to get the existing nut off. Torque wrench the nut back on.
