Sprocket changes for track on 03 bike
i've just got an 03 race bike with standard gearing and taking it around mallory park (uk) it bogs down in the chicane and hairpin so it definitely needs a sprocket change.
it was easy on my 600F as most just go -1 front +2 rear and job done but i dont know what the rr is like as im not that experienced with them.
i have an 06 trackbike that currently has 14 48. isnt stock 16 43? (so -2 front +5 rear) but havent had a chance to give it a run yet to see if it works for me (only just got that too)
do sprockets from an 06 fit an 03?
i have a spare 44 and 46 rear sprocket with the trackbike so if they all fit i could remove mine and try them on the race bike.
my main question is, what gearing do most people with 03 trackbikes normally go for to get the best all round performance? mallory isnt a high speed circuit, lots of stop and go so but it also has one very high speed long corner so i dont want to compromise my top end 'too' much.
any advice welcome
