There's a "sweet spot" - around 4,600 RPM @120Km/hr in 6th gear for liter displacement superbikes, a little higher for 74X's. Obviously, faster tracks will require rear sprockets with fewer teeth, slower tracks more teeth (and possibly longer chains.)

I strongly recommended NOT changing the stock front sprocket or chain size for safety reasons. Just my opinion.

Shazaam!, I used this very chart that you kindly provided earlier in the year when I changed my gearing. Only problem being the listed sprockets for the 996R are incorrect. They have a 36 tooth rear as standard. Apart from that its a great bit of info.

Happy New Year!

From memory i'm on 15 38 on my 6R.

I did briefly try a 14 tooth front to test the results before investing in a rentahl rear sprocket carrier. Larger rear sprocket for same results, less stress on chain and safety reasons Shazaam has expressed.

Front wheel comes up very easy
