Cheers. Anyone dropped one at the front on an '04 749S? Is it worthwhile?
I went down 1 at the front and 1 up at the rear on my 999S , noticably quicker acceleration , reduced top speed by 5-10 mph though.
I intend doing the same on the 749R , I'm just waiting for sprockets
I have a 999s, with 1 tooth less on the fr sprocket, how much more difference does going up one on the rear make? Any problems with chain length?
One down at the front and 1 up at the back is the equivalent of 3 (and a bit) up at the back , the advantage being you do not need a new chain to do it where you probably would have to replace the chain too if you just altered the rear sprocket.
In reply to Shazzams post , I will check the front sprocket on Mrs eggs 749S when I get home for number of teeth , I thought it was a 15 front standard so going down to a 14 is not an issue , I do know without checking though that ALL 749's and 999's come fitted with 525 chain and sprockets as standard.
