15/44 - Kick in the Pants

Let me qualify this by first saying I haven't owned any really quick bikes in the past....but....OMG, swapped out the stock 16/43 sprockets for 15/44. All I can say is, WOW. My 919 already had a lot of bottom end, but now it feels like is on steroids. I don't like riding fast, but I like to "quickly" get up to speed, so the gearing change was perfect for my riding style. Definitely a wheelie machine now.

Gonna surprise my GSXR 750 buddy the next time we are out.

Yeah, my 15/45 setup helps me keep up with my friends (RC51, R1, GSXR750, ZX6R)...

How many links of chain does that set up use?

Stock chain length works fine for the 15/44 setup.

im thinking about going to the 15 tooth front sprocket.

the cops over here are a bit too anal about speeding,
get caught above 145kph/90mph instant 28 day loss of license
bike impounded for the same.
big fine
then off to court to find out the dequalification time,up to 6 months..

What sort of revs are you doing at 100k's/62mph??.

Tough to say how many RPMs I am turning at that speed since it throws your speedometer off, but there is a very good gearing spreadsheet here:

Click on the "mods" link and then the "gearing spreadsheet" link. You can plug in all of the different sprocket combinations and see the change in revs, top speed, etc.
