Stock is 15 front , 42 rear you got two options if you want to increase acceleration off the get go you can either go down one tooth in the front (cheaper) or go up 3 three teeth in the back both will have the same effect you will end up loosing some speed at the top but since you ain't going over 100 the loos would not bother you too much. The other issue to decide is do you want to stick to the 530 (OEM ) or go to the 520 ( lighter sprocket ) if you do mostly street riding the 530 will last longer as its a thicker sprocket so it does not get beat up easily like the 520

The sweet spot you talk about depends on your choice and your style / activity of riding the ultimate set up varies from one biker to another

Mine aren't ready to be changed yet but ill prolly go with the -1,+2 when I have to. There is absolutely no need to go over 100 miles an hour on 95% of all roads most of us ride and most people really seem to dig the -1,+2

-1,+2 seems to be the winner. i really just ride corners and sweeps when i can but work full time and school full time limit how often i ride. so that seems the most economical solution.

Stock is 16/42 525

You can run a 530 though on a CBR 600RR if you want it to be super long lasting. IT's the same part numbers as the 1000RR.

If it's a street bike I would recommend something like the Driven superlight steel evo-spec chain kit with the ek mvxz chain. Super long lasting sprockets and chain and priced very well. The quality of these rear sprockets is great. I would do a -1 in the front and +2 in the rear if you want good bottom end gain and rarely go over 100mph. It will rev a hair higher, but this is the most popular gearing for the street guy who doesn't top his bike out and doesn't want it so twitchy like a stunter, but just wants some more bottom end gain with still keeping it streetable.

If you have any questions let us know!

On the topic motomummy, do Renthal or Driven have better feedback with the -1/+2 conversion and in general?

Yup i just saw this. I just got the superlight steel driven
kt from motomummy but i kept my stock gearing. If you change your gearing be sure to order a speedo drd too cause your speedo will be off. The drd is an easy install though. I just kept stock gearing because i commute too.

Renthal is only imported into the US with alum rear sprockets. So if you compare that to the Driven alum rear sprocket they are both great quality. The main difference is the Renthal only comes in gray as they haven't started adding dye to their anodizing to color it black like Driven has. That is just for coloring though. So other then looks they are the same quality and pretty much the same thing.

However, Driven Racing also makes the superlight steel evo spec rear sprockets. They do weigh a bit more, but will last longer as they are steel. For the street rider who doesn't care about a tad extra weight this is the way to go. You can't compare it to Renthal though as they don't import their steel rears into the US. Vortex makes a good quality superlight steel rear sprocket that is also good though.

Hope this helps.

If that's all they will allow us to do then might as well gear it for more grunt out of the whole.

On the other hand I think Texas has a highway that allows them to go 85mph ( 137 km/h) but that is not the norm.


Good looking bike man. We get robbed with color choices over here.
What is the thing hanging off where the passenger pegs would go?

Kinda sounds like the performance street rider would want a 520 chain with the Driven Racing Superlight Steel EVO sprocket setup.

How far it's off depends on the gearing you get. the more you gear your bike away from the stock the farther it will be off.

We offer the SpeedoDRD for 70 dollars with free shipping.

-2 on the counter shaft sprocket is a tight turn for your chain ... isn't it?
