Re: Which is the best sprocket combination?

Standard, or drop one tooth in the front for more acceleration.

Your other "problem" is absolutely not related to your gearing. It's something else.

Re: Which is the best sprocket combination?

16/41 is stock. I've gone 15/41 for more midrange response. I have a 15/43 520 conversion on order... accelleration will be brutally fast but I'll lose some top speed. (which I don't care about anyway).

I am also considering 15/43. however somewhere on the web. It has been recommended to fit 15/45!!!!!

Re: Which is the best sprocket combination?

15/45 would be great if all you wanted to do was wheelie. I think 15/43 is about the shortest you'll want to go for overall rideability.

Re: Which is the best sprocket combination?

the 2005 cbr 1000rr has 41 as standard. The 2006 version has 43 I believe. And they say it is has perked up the new CBR qyuite a bit. hence my reasoning to consider 15/43

The 2006 also has a higher fuel cut-off so with the shorter gearing it still doesn't lose any top speed.

Re: Which is the best sprocket combination?

well top speed you only do once (normally). I only tend to do it when I get a new bike. Then Once I done it. Never go back to that again. So really top speed is not really a problem. Except when you got tall gearing like my bike and get blown into the weeds by a Kwak ZX6R 636!!!!

As everyone has said it depends on what you want, and I suppose that Honda having changed ratio says a lot. My personal preference has always been to obtain the ratio I want(big rear divided by the smaller front equals
X to 1) by using larger sprockets on the back(for more umph) or larger sprockets both front and back(for more umph or whatever other objective).

This puts a lesser load on both chain and sprockets and so they last quite a lot longer and the front in particular does not get so mangled by high powered motors. This really worked well for me on big twins where the smaller fronts really seemed to take a beating and also on fours when I wanted to have more mid range.

In racing they also use this to change the rear end suspension character which must be something of a geometric joy when combined with adjustable height swingarm pivot.

since you live in Thailand you should have the Euro specs model which I think it comes with a 16/42 (at least the RR3's have that difference too). For the history, went with the +3R, really awesome in the track
