er6f also know as ex650 c9f sprocket advice

Hi just looking for a bit of advice on sprockets . I will be doing quite a bit of motorway riding soon due to work and my bike seems to rev quite high even in 6th gear . How would I lower the revs in high gears . And how bad would it make it to ride in low gears . Thanks for any advice offered

Either go up one tooth in the front, or two or three down in the rear. New chain, as with any sprocket change.

It will make the lower gears feel less powerful at the same rpm range that you're used to.

Dont think that would be too much of a problem could always drop down a gear for overtaking . And im not one for going flat out everywhere . I just dont want it to be terrible driving through town in low gears

A one or two tooth change isn't going harm your low speed riding.

17/44 combo works really well! It's my all time favorite all around gearing combo. Perfect for long trips, commuting, sprinted riding, canyon carving, and track days.
