    Gearing

    Apologies if this has been done to death. Direct me to a previous thread by all means. Looking to change my cogs front and back for track use. Thinking of going -1 on the front and +1 on the rear to 16/45 or even just 16/44 to start with. Has anyone changed their gearing for track use? Is it a mod worth doing? Many Thanks for any advice given. Cheers

    Gearing

    It will all depend on what circuit you are at as to what gearing you need. I have a selection of front and rear sprockets and just change them to suit each track.

    Likely to do Cadwell and Donnington more than others. Is there a combination that suits most UK tracks?

    I ran -1 front then went to -2 front, works fine for me at Oulton Donington and Anglesey on -2 but I only do track days not racing

    Mines a 2010 with the standard ecu not flashed as far as I am aware

    16/46 works at most circuits

    What would you use at Donny, 16:46 ?

    At Mugello, 16:45 or 44 ?



    also, newbie question, if I'm installing 520 chain, do I need to adjust the length of swing arm or will it work fine with 16:45, 16:46 gearing ?

    Yeah, Ive read a bit of internet after I asked the question, I guess the answer is you just buy an appropriate pitched sprockets.
