Where are these rules located? I haven't been on the .org for very long, and this is the second reference to the rules I've seen today....

Re: 929 chain/sprocket for stunt or high speed ?

I am running -1 in front (15tooth) and +1 in the rear (34 tooth) I also installed a speado healer. I am happy with that setup on my 954.

OK first ignore your dealer

You can go stock and get the same performance (and speedo accuracy) Or change gearing. I doubt you would want taller gearing (more top end on these beasts for road use ), so either go down one on the front or up on the back. To see the effect search on gearing calculator and you can enter your info and find the effect on top end. Down one on the front is fairly common for those that choose to change (be aware it will change true speed vs speedo indication).

The alternative is to go down on the front and get stupid big on the back (guessing this is what your dealer called 'torque') this is a squid/stunter gearing and is good for showing off but not for riding.

EDIT: and if you have no desire and/or need why not just stay stock? are you unhappy with it currently?

Must obey the sheep dog

You're going to get yourself banned. Not so much for talking about wheelies but for your daylight muggings of kittens.

Re: 929 chain/sprocket for stunt or high speed ?

I dropped one tooth in the front. I get into the power so much faster, and it pulls me out of corners nicely. However, my bike tops our much faster. I don't have nearly as much range, but it's nice at the track.

Re: 929 chain/sprocket for stunt or high speed ?

i also went down 1 tooth on the front and love it, and also did the 520 conversion at the same time ( do a search and the info. is bountiful). if your changing gears you should do all 3 (front and rear, chain), because any one of the three thats worn will prematurely wear the others. if it's all near new and you just want a gearing change, changing just a sprocket is fine.

dropping down 1 tooth on the front will be more dramatic a change than doing just the rear, and the most popular changes seem to be -1 front, and -1/+2

by going down one tooth in the front i have noticed that usable power on the street comes on alot quicker, and makes constant downshifting to stay in the power all but unnecasary. i find it to be the perfect combo for me, and i drive everyday street/highway on my daily commute to work, with equal amounts of both. anout the only down side is that you will lose top speed, and burn through a little more gas. i have found neither to be drastic, basically 5mph difference on the speedo (showing 95mph and going 90), and could care less about the gas. also haven't done the speedo healer because i don't mind doing the math, and they are typically offfrom the factory also...

Re: 929 chain/sprocket for stunt or high speed ?

well what kind of riding do you want to do?? for track riding and back road canyon ripping go -1/+2.. for top speed highway runs or commutes just keep it stock.. wheelies are not going to be a problem with either of these if you know how to ride...i would say the "stunt" sprocket packages they sell on ebay etc, make the bike unrideable for any kind of serious canyon carving.. but to each their own, if you want to be a serious stunter, ie. slow circle wheelies & such, then your gonna need the big rear sprocket, i would just get a "stunt bike" with a cage, 12bar & proper gearing for that and keep the 929 street/track rideable.;.
