Sprockets

What is the consensus of opinion on sprocket sizes?

My 93 strada is on 15/37 which I would imagine is standard size.
Im not worried about top speed but want to increase acceleration, will changing the front to 14 make much difference or should I go bigger on the back too??

Standard as you say is 15/37.Im using 14/37,its an improvement but if you want more acceleration I reckon you could go lower and the bike still be perfectly usable.Bought Tsubaki chain(its a strong one) and Renthal sprockets from Cornerspeed,excellent service-joined chain for me and good price.

To improve acceleration, you need to increase the rear sprocket.
To improve speed, you need to increase the front sprocket.

But you can also improve acceleration to decrease the front sprocket. I don't know which is the best solution.
I know I changed the rear sprocket of my supermoto to go faster

i use 15/39, i don't like revving the tits off my bike and i feel a 14 tooth on the front is a bit low, for me anyway. the other concern with a 14 tooth sprocket is faster chain wear due to the smaller circumference, but it can't be that bad 748's have a 14 tooth std.

Loony888 got me onto a 15/39 setup and the bike has a quicker and more usable sweetspot. It is a treat on mountain twisties when you are on the throttle. It gets rid of that lag effect before the revs have built up.

It seems that 15/39 could be the way to go rather than a smaller front sprocket. Also a recommendation on the 916 bikes..

Any recommended suppliers?

Glyn you tart...what are you posting in the 888 forum for.

it's not even as if you know anybody who needs a sprocket for a 888 :P

BTW: I've got no teeth on my standard 37 toother. Hmmmm...I wonder whether my standard chain would accomodate a couple more teeth.

And....is the chain on a T8 a 520? looks like it.
