520 conversion wt 45t rear sprocket

Well, just got done installing my 520 chain conversion with a 45t rear sprocket. Took it for a quick test drive around the block. Opened it up 3/4 throttle and the front and comes right off. I love it!

What is the advantage of a larger rear sprocket, besides the wheelie factor? I know a 17t front will fix the speedo error, and give you a better cruising speed, but what exactly does this conversion do? I'm interested in doing it myself, i just want to know the benefits. Oh, and how much did it cost in the end?

Putting on a bigger rear sprocket gives you more acceleration, but a lower top end. Putting on a smaller front sprocket would do the same thing as a larger rear sprocket.

Putting on a larger front sprocket would allow you to cruise at lower revs, with the sacrifice of acceleration.

But the tach and speed will look the same.Speed is not taken at the front wheel.Time for a speedhealer?
