I have heard for better acceleration get either a larger rear sprocket or a small front sprocket or both. Which of the three is best? What number teeth do you recommend for them? And does anyone have it done and do you feel a difference? Also what brand do you guys recommend? Thanks! I have a ZX636R 04. :?:

GEARING

You will cut your topend but the bottom end will JUMP for you when you change the sprockets. ther are several companies that offer complete kits even with a chain...although it is more difficult to change the rear sprocket, pulling the rar wheel and all, also getting a longer chain, jump three to four or five teeth in the back sprocket and you will notice a dramatic change in power. BE CAREFUL, as the bike will want to Launch andpull the front wheel off of the ground as you go through the gears. If you change thefront Countershaft sprocket it is easier then you are going around a smaller front sprocket and it really is hard on the chain to make it go in a tighter circumference. If you just wanted to find out how it would perform with different gears then change it down one tooth and see if it is what you like...it is equal to about 3 teeth on the rear sprocket...One word of advice is to mount stickier tires on the rear if you decide to change the rear sprocket while the rear tire is off. you will be ripping the tire and sliding much more than you think...just be careful...
